    Blogging Improves Writing

    Hey,

    I know for sure that my writing has improved drastically ever since I started blogging. Has your writing improved? This definitely supports the fact that writing is about practice.

    Since I started blogging, I don't like my writing style anymore It might be better but since than I'm using "I" too much instead of just talking without using me, myself & I

    I agree. My style of writing and getting into conversations has changed a lot since i started blogging.
    But can't totally stand with blogging as the complete reason. As i have been a member of various forums and used to post a lot, which also helped for the same.

    You probably shouldn't be using "I" that much when blogging. You want to pull visitors in when you're talking, so using "you" more would help.

    I agree, though. My writing style has changed since I started blogging regularly. I can definitely tell a difference. That's why I started a personal blog without the "professional" limitations.

    I think I actually improved my writing when posting on forums. I definitely learned how to interact with people more, and learned how to gain and leverage respect a lot more. You get reputation more easily on forums than blogging, so the way you post is everything.

    As far as blogging, I think my writing style has actually been simplified. If I use big words, people won't understand my content, even though my vocabulary uses some unorthodox language at times. I found while writing papers for school, I scaled my level down to like 8th grade skills instead of 11th.

    Learning not to let blogging deter your writing skills is extremely important.

    Not only does blogging help you with content writing, but also any kind of writing. Sometimes at work I will just think about things on my mind and jot down a little bit about them, just to get a good amount of writing in for the day.

    I can't deny that a good english command is a must in order to write a good post. I would prefer read more to improved the writing skill.

    Blogging has not really helped me. I do not see how one can improve by reading their own stuff.

    Not your own stuff, other people's stuff. Or you can compare your latest writings to when you just started to get a sense of how far you've come. You also want to read over your own content to find weaknesses and things that are "awkward." There are tons of benefits to reading your own work.

    But reading other things (BOOKS!!!! PRINTED MATERIALS!) is a great way to improve your writing.

    @Sneaky By blogging I thought your own stuff. And instead of reading other blogs, as you said, I rather read books.
