It’s none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.— Ernest Hemingway
In a few of my previous blog posts, I talked about the digital era where information is spreading like wildfire and people are coming across content faster than ever. You need to create engaging content that not only attracts internet users, but also keeps them coming back for more.
It’s difficult to create engaging content if you don’t have ease with writing and grammar. However, with practice, anyone can become a better writer. The more you practice, the more you master your skills.
Today, I am sharing some helpful tips on how you can create amazing articles even if you suck at writing.
Read up on writing techniques
Understanding the basics of grammar and syntax will help you avoid common writing mistakes. You can also read tips and insights from experienced writers. Personally, I get inspiration from other writers that I find their articles to be very informative.
I try to read as many of them as possible and note down all the important details. A successful author or writer will tell you they read more than they write. You can do the same.
Reading up on writing techniques will also help you identify your weak areas and improve on them. Once you know what to change in your writing, you are a step closer to being one of the success stories in writing. The more you read, the more you realize you can do better.
As much as you want to improve, test yourself to know how far you are from your writing goal. Always remember, no one is perfect so do not waste time trying to perfect one thing, instead, make mistakes and learn from them as you go.
Be flexible and learn new things
You can’t become a great writer overnight. No one can, either. Even if you read a lot and followed all the tips and tricks, it won’t work if you don’t apply them.
You need to be flexible with your writing style and try out new things. If you’re writing for your blog, you can try out first-person voice, series, quizzes, lists, persuasive arguments, etc.
If you’re writing for e-commerce product listings, you can try to incorporate visuals, create video product descriptions, and use bullet points.
Any new thing that you learn each day, put it into practice. Practice makes perfect. The more you learn, the more your mind opens up, and before you know it, you are creating killer content that people will actually read.
Ask for feedback and do something with it
Writing articles can be a lonely and isolating task. You might feel frustrated, defeated, and inadequate while doing it. I wrote about writer’s block and how you can manage it.
However, you might be surprised to know that most bloggers struggled with the “why” part of content writing. The best way to overcome this challenge is to get feedback from your readers.
It is very helpful to get feedback from someone and then do something with it. Your response can be as simple as saying thank you to actually creating a new article and responding to the feedback from them.
You can get feedback by creating a survey for your readers and asking them for their thoughts about your articles. Feedback surveys can help you identify your weaknesses and improve.
You can also get feedback on your writing style and grammar from fellow bloggers. A great writer is someone who can recognize their mistakes, learn from them and improve. Feedbacks act as a way to see your content from your readers’ perspective and use their thoughts and opinions to correct your mistakes and know what you did right and what needs to be changed.
How you may think your content is perfect is not how someone else sees it, so always ask for feedback.
Show, don’t just tell
“Show, don’t tell” is a phrase that has been widely used in almost every form of writing.
Why is this important?
Writing is all about explaining and demonstrating the content. If you simply tell your readers what you’re going to write about, they’ll get bored and move on to something else.
You have to keep your readers engaged by showing them how your content is going to help them solve their problems, solve their questions, and solve their questions. If you can help your readers solve their questions, they’ll be more likely to return for more content from you.
You don’t have to only explain your content; you can also demonstrate it with examples, insights, and visuals. A great blog post is one that demonstrates the content with examples, insights, and visuals.
A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.—Richard Bach
In conclusion, writing is a skill that can be learned, practised, and improved upon. Successful bloggers have also shared that they don’t consider themselves writers, they are content creators.
You can achieve success with content marketing if you work on your writing skills. While it can be challenging, we believe that anyone can create amazing content if they practice.
Keep reading, reading, reading, and always remember, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!”
And these are the 4 most helpful tips for creating incredible articles, even if you are not good at it yet. You will get there.
If you find it meaningful, please share it with someone you know. Write me your thoughts in the comment section, and I will also appreciate it if you like and follow for more incredible stuff to come.

Nice post! Another method I enjoy using is to source bloggers that I enjoy, and see what they’re doing. This allows me to study the craft, as well as to learn what makes me tick, so I can do the same for others.
