What keeps you coming back to a certain blog and her posts? Is it the adventures, or simply the stories of a mundane life of a blogger? Or is it the interactions that you want to reap with the author? Or maybe, it’s the visuals? Graphics? Videos?
Perhaps I want to know these answers from you because every reader demands different things. I don’t believe that I’m a great writer at all – in fact, I feel that I’m terrible at conveying my thoughts. Perhaps my experience in life is just so happening, that I didn’t really have time to analyse the experience in words (hence the less sophisticated vocabulary). It is something I work towards – engaging readers – but I think I’m doing it wrong. Well, most people (the authors that I follow) say that nothing is wrong in any writing style, but of course, the personality and the genuine intentions should be clear.
Like… how do I do that?!
But I now realise that writing is a progressive journey – I won’t be able to write well if I don’t conscientiously make the effort to write properly. It’s not like we’re born with the innate ability to write. I think these talents take time to develop, and making time for these talents is a choice, and not a given on a silver spoon.
By now, I realise that I don’t really have a niche area in writing. What do I want to write about? *crickets* Tons, actually! But I feel like I’m all over the place. (At this point, I’m rather annoyed and confused between the Ctrl button on Windows Laptop vs Macbook since my thumb keeps pressing the Control/Fn button instead of the Command button in wanting to make a capital letter/accented letters)
*neglects post for 7 hours and comes back to it after eating cheese rings*
Anyhow, I shall practise writing more often! Hopefully something comes out of this – be a better writer is the most basic takeaway I can have.
Back to eating the cheese rings! 😀
