11 Things I have learned from Blogging-#RealReads

Here’s the list of 11things I’ve learned from blogging : 

#1. Don’t fear criticism:”You have to let people see what you wrote. It will never be perfect, but perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring.”-Tina Fey.

#2.The ZeRO Clutter practice:  There are a lot of useless words in a sentence which should be edited into simpler forms. Sentences should be made as clear and breif as possible so they are easier to read. Well defined  by William Zinsser❤ –“4Basic permises of writing are:clarity, brevity, simplicity and humanity”.

#3 .You get what you give: You need to give geniune  feedback to other bloggers in order to get geniune feedback. And feedback is important for improvement. 

#4. There’s more inside you than you think: Until I started writing I never knew that  my thoughts were so deep . Writing let’s you to “think”about something “worth thinking”. 

#5. Creativity is infinite: The more you write,  more creative you get. Anything is possible in fiction afterall.There’s no limit to craziness in fiction. 

#6. Never ask who your audience is! : Write for yourself in a way you enjoy reading irrespective of who your audience is and what they might think. Be fearless and write!

#7. Learn from anything and everything constantly: I m not alone here, there are thousands of bloggers here. The more you read, the better you write. Reading other blogs you get ideas about different styles of writing and collabrating different ideas you could make your own style of writing.  

#8. WRITING IS HARD:Infinite reasons to this point.I rather say ‘GOOD writing is Hard’.  It is not as easy as everyone who reads thinks it is. It is hard but it is so much fun. “Hard writing makes easy reading. Easy writing makes hard reading”-THE ULTIMATE TRUTH. 

#9. GOOD writing is the outcome of good thinking and a hell lot of practice : Writing is thinking. To write in a good way you need to think in a good way but that is not enough.Presentation is the key. How well and clearly you present your thoughts will eventually decide how efficaciously you write. 

#10. Whatever you do, don’t do nothing: There is no wrong or right. It’s just “write”. Writing well is about practice and so I try and be regular, not just blogging there are so many other ways to practice writing regularly.Bad writing is better than no writing. 

#11. Comparison kills joy: There are bloggers whose following is 100times more than mine or maybe I could directly compare myself to Gina Trapani! That’s not how it works, irrespective of how good a person writes followers are a matter of time moreover.Do not compare yourself it’s more about practice and experience. 


And that was the list of 11things I learnt from blogging. Do comment what you think about this post and I would love to know what have you learned from blogging!

  1. Shivee this is an excellent post, some excellent points you have noted here. Comments should be a means to give honest constructive feedback, whether it is good or bad it is only there to improve us as writers and bloggers.
    This is precisely what I crave honest feedback, because that’s what will help us to grow. However it seems people object if you give good constructive criticism.
    I can only hope as bloggers we can be mature enough to hear that way.

    Thank you Shivee, a very important post.

    1. Feedback is what tells us what is good or bad, and criticism is the base of improvement, moreover improvement needs feedback!👍

  2. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  5. Reblogged this on youngfiction21 and commented:
    Comparison kills joy is probably the best advice from this post. It stops you from looking inside yourself and developing your own personal skills because you’re constantly holding them up to others. It has taken me a while to get through that, but I still struggle now and then.

  6. I just discovered this post — thank you! I am a teacher and so I find summertime is the time I can find my voice. I made myself a promise this summer that I would write every day for 30 days, which is much harder, in some ways, than I thought. But I have learned that writing helps me think and I didn’t really consider that valid until I read your list!

  7. #2 is so accurate. I remember when I first started blogging, I would publish my posts and never look back. Now, I review my drafts at least 2-3 times and reread them to make sure my writing is concise. It makes a huge difference.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
