When I review my blog posts to which I have written five years previously, I am shocked to see how many errors I should have corrected at that time. From the beginning, I was terrified that my writing style would be criticized because I used many run-on sentences along with the lack of using logical thinking to ensure that my headlines and stories would collaborate together. To any avail, they did not flow well at all.
My plan for now is to go back, re-write my blog post and post a link to my old post on there in order to help beginning bloggers that your writing style can change within the first five years or more. Errors are mistakes to which we make but it’s up to us to learn from them even if someone did not critique us for it. As bloggers, it’s our job to create headlines, write the story, edit and press the “publish” button. Not only those tasks but to understand that constructive criticism will help us along the way.
Even though I am bashful when I speak in front of the class, I found a way to practice my speech before I speak in front of the class. Before you write and present your speech in front of your audience, practice what you will say in front of your friends and use word pad to write an example of a speech that you would use and read one sentence at a time:
Example: I like to drive my car to school because I can listen to my own music and not have to wait for my parents to pick me up at a later time.
I like to drive my car to school
Because I can listen to my own music
And not have to wait for my parents to
Pick me up at a later time.
Read these sentences at one time and try to collide them together (all in one). This can help, but also, you can read your speech in front of the mirror. Remember the saying, “practice makes perfect.”
