    Blogging is the actual act of writing things. The more you write - the better you get. Practice makes perfect, so in that sense, blogging can help you become a better writer. But reading is still the most important step.

    The more you write the more you learn about you're own inherent ability to flow on and your learned abilities as they evolve

    I found that the more that I post, the more that I post, if you get my drift?

    Like it becomes easier to create content. But I need to learn to get better at creating more in-depth articles so as to out-do competitors. Most top bloggers seem to post quite lenghty well-thought out posts, but I sometimes think that my blog posts are almost like Tweets.

    Length is less important than meaning/message. Less can be more. Think about Seth Godin.

    Continuous blogging will definitely improve your writing skills especially when you tend to search for words(synonyms, etc.) to be used rather than using the usual words.

    Kudos to you!

    My writing hasn't improved much, my English has. That probably means I need to outsource less of my blogging activity. *sheepish grin*

    It depends. I don't really think I have improved but I'm more conscious of what I'm saying and writing. I take extra precautions.

    I think people start writing worse when they start blogging. Do you know how many blogs I have read that go like this:

    "Today i......................went to school, and it was boring but my teacher was ok and i have a lot of homework and i .... sat around all day doing nothing after i got home"

    Except much worse. I can't even write as badly as some bloggers do! Of course this stuff is on personal blogs, but still!

    It's true that sometimes blogging can actually worsen your writing skills. Say...if you insist on "writing at a 5th grade level" which is a suggestion I've heard from some people.

    The constant action of writing will help improve your skills simply because you're getting in practice, but you also need to be wary of your progress and strive to improve on a conscious level.

    To be honest, a lot of people eat up the stuff that is really dumbed down. I might do an experiment and write in an ignorant style about random crap and see what happens. This usually only works on sites like Xanga though. Seems like the dumber you are the more attention you get. Perhaps because there are far more "idiots" running around the Internet than intelligent folks.

    Writing does helps in improving your writing. It's good to have a blog and write in it consistently. The key is to have focus and staying committed to the task.
