Blogging is serious business—at least it can be. There are people who use their blogs as online portfolios to showcase their work, people who use blogs as tools for political activism and people who use the blogs as a way to make a living.
However you use your blog, it’s important that your content is engaging, thought-provoking and above all, well-written.
The best blogs have great content, and great content should be your top priority. Finding the strengths and weaknesses in your writing can be tough. It’s hard to be objective about your own writing, and it can be even harder to find flaws in pieces that you’re passionate about.
