Blogging is great for developing your Writing ...
If you want to be a writer and don't have a blog, start one (or create your XperLink account to open debates or submit ideas).
Blogging is free and it is something that will help to develop your writing skills.
Actually, blogging accomplishes several very important tasks for writers:
- Whether you gain an audience
or not, you will feel accountable to update your blog. That will push you
to write often. You should blog weekly.
- Needing fresh content for your
blog will stretch your mind. You will think of new angles and approaches
to tackling subjects so that you don't just repeat yourself.
- Knowing that outsiders may see
your blog, you will be more careful about sentence structure and grammar.
- You will feel a sense of
validation and personal reward by getting the art of your writing out into
- If you gain followers that
make comments, you can enter into some great two-way conversations.
- Blogging can help get you
noticed as a writer. You might even be contacted by a buyer who'd like to
buy one of your blog posts for re-publishing.
- Your blog can become your
personal portfolio of writing style examples.
- Blogging keeps everything
nicely typed and organized in an archive. It is virtual and should stay
safe for a long time.
- Blogging becomes a type of
diary. It's fun to go back and see your development over time.
So if you're starting out as a writer or are a writer who wants to develop their skills, try blogging on one of the free online formats. Even better: open debates on XperLink and surely create meaningful connexions.
Doing so will help you become an great writer and you never know where that may lead.

Yes, blogging develops your writing, your thinking - it's actually expected.
Yet many do not realize that thinking is a prelude to speaking, thus, if you are good in writing which is about thinking then you must be good in speaking, more so, putting it into action. Okay, action requires character, character strength; then again, with your thought process in full steam, it's a matter of having that "character" to make a good Leader.
After all, there is "leadership" in great writing.
