Blogging has been very instrumental to the success I am experiencing right now and has definitely changed my life for the better.
Why? Because blogging keeps me sane, forms part of my daily writing habit (my life SAVERS), and allows me to reach thousands of people with just a few sentences.
And you might think, “Well, it’s too easy for Marv to blog because he’s a writer.”
Uhm, by the way, I don’t consider myself a writer. Even if I have a published book, a newspaper column for Malaya, and 100 plus posts here for the Freelance Blend blog, I still don’t feel that I am a writer.
Just writing this blog post is hard for me. But what I do believe I am good at is conversing with people.
And being a good conversationalist is more critical to blogging than being a great writer.
If you are able to converse well with people in written form, like an email…then you can blog.
Because I write my blog posts as if I am writing an email to my best friend…and that is YOU, my dear reader.
And that is just one of my handy tips to get you started in blogging:
“Blog as if you are writing an email to your best friend.”
