How to Overcome Your Fear of Writing Failure Before Dawn

Writing is beneficial to so many people. In fact, the average writer realizes that writing, whether it is done for self or for an audience, always benefits someone out there.

The lesson is that there is someone who values what you write. And true writers don’t write because the always want to get paid. They write because this is just part of them.

Writing is part of a true writer’s everyday activity. It doesn’t matter whether it is done on a blog or a piece of paper or on a computer screen. The reality is that writers don’t give up on their craft easily.

And so the easiest way to overcome your fear of writing failure is to put yourself out there.

Just write.

In fact, I’ll say you should write until it hurts.

Writing is what you do; intend it and take action. You’ll get better over time.

Forget the worries about being perfect. Perfection is just a myth because true art can never be complete.

#BLOGGING: 3 Simple Hacks That Will Make Your Blog Post Really, Really Persuasive

When you write a post, you should embed yourself in it.

It is good for your readers and you.

If you ask me, I’ll tell you that a very persuasive blog post is attractive to read. It gets your audience to tick the yes box. You’ll also feel good about yourself when you hit the publish button.

There will be no need for you to beat around the bush. You just know that you’ve done a good job – irrespective of whether you are on the blogging amateur or professional level.

With this in mind, I want to share with you three simple hacks for crafting out a really, really persuasive blog post.

Now, lets start.

1) Match your words to your audience needs

For you to do this, you have to learn what’s important to them.

The reason is because whenever you write, you are always writing for someone else. It’s very easy to forget this. The idea of writing the way you want can sometimes make you blind to your audience needs.

All audiences are different; and this may sound obvious but in practice, you may forget to apply this concept to your work.

All in all: your audience matters. Keep them in mind when doing your writing.

2) Speak in the jargon your audience accepts

There is a way your audience speaks. There are words that your audience uses. They might be technical or derogatory in manner. The important is that you identify the kind of phrases that are not offensive to the particular audience that you’re writing to.

When you think about your audience differently, your writing will improve – especially in terms of how you combine your use of jargon and everyday words in your sentences.

Another way of interpreting this is to use the vocabulary that your audience understands.

3) Connect your writing voice to the blog post you’re writing

To connect your writing voice to the blog post that you’re writing, all you have to do is find your blogging voice.

Your blogging voice encompasses the way you use your writing to express your thoughts – and the style, of course.

For the sake of the growth of your blog in future, work on focusing your efforts on developing your writing voice. It’s an essential that you take your time to get this write. It is one of the ways to avoid your pattern of writing in twists and turns.

Focus on a single message in each of your posts. If you have different ideas that you want to merge into that particular post, title the blog post like a theme on the topic.

IN CONCLUSION

Writing a persuasive blog post is easy. Just use the three tips above.
