Blogging Tips You Should(n’t) Follow, From Me (kind of)

Let’s first start off with: What is a Blog?

Me, a typical Gen Z-er, would say: Well it’s like a vlog but on a website. Google says: a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.

Now, now, let’s note some advice that I read from Lily Pierce’s Blog “TWO MAJOR TIPS FOR WRITING BLOG POSTS (OR ANYTHING ELSE) FASTER & MORE EASILY

Of course, as a blogger, it’s important to have things to blog about–ironically. It’s important to keep idea running, so some advice would be to jot down notes throughout the day of any random ideas. One thing I’ve definitely struggled a lot with was motivation, because I’d have a list of ideas but nothing really pushing me to write about them. I, personally, think that being able to pick and choose from a list that you curated would be good motivation.

Another important piece of advice would be to just let yourself write. I hadn’t really thought about it until reading the linked article above, but there’s a different between writing and editing. Now you’re probably like, duh, but as explained in the article: we tend to go back and delete or fix errors as we write. We tend to focus on mistakes and continuously go back and delete and fix errors. This tendency we have to constantly go back hinders the flow of writing–ironically as I’m typing this now I’ve had to think about my syntax and fix spelling errors. A really cool quote from the blog is:

“Writing is creating; editing is perfecting.

By now I’ve overwritten and bored everyone to death, so I hope that this made some sort of sense. I’m not really sure why I’m trying to give advice that’s not really mine, but I’m trying to take it as I write it. I still can’t stand this formatting theme, but there’s not much I can do and I’d like to thank my daily two views on this page. Have a lovely day everyone, I know I won’t.

Basically: keep the ideas running and let your self finish writing before you go back and fix it all.
