Recap: 5 Useful Writing Tools to Aid your Blog

Writing tools - reflect on the journey
There are many use­ful writ­ing tools. It starts with the more than a mil­lion words in the Eng­lish lan­guage. One of the things that writ­ing elec­tron­i­cal­ly does is allow you to use search to look once again at what you have writ­ten. You can even assess the sta­tis­tics to dis­cov­er what your reader’s inter­ests are. Search can make sure infor­ma­tion relat­ing to spe­cif­ic top­ics can all be col­lect­ed togeth­er. It isn’t always accu­rate, but even the search odd­i­ties can be of interest.

Reason to Recap Useful Writing Tools

There are many tools used for writ­ing, what it is my inten­tion to do here is col­lect togeth­er some of the things that I have writ­ten about both here and in oth­er places. All have one thing in com­mon, they are tools for writ­ing or may aid your pub­lic­i­ty efforts as a writer. The idea being, to pro­vide a way to pro­duce a quick ref­er­ence guide for the writer, who is inter­est­ed in extend­ing their knowl­edge in any of the areas cov­ered here. Not many words will be added, just enough to guide the curious.

Tools:

This is an area I have made a men­tal note to write more about in the future. That said oth­er sec­tions also include tools which are used to enhance writing.
At some future time I intend to review how read­abil­i­ty tools func­tion and how they can be used to improve your use of lan­guage and how to under­stand the innate quirks of how they test your writ­ing. Today I am still test­ing Gram­marly, Scribbens, and Hem­ing­way to see the advan­tage they offer the writer.

Pictures:

Pic­tures, in my mind, are an essen­tial pre­sen­ta­tion tool that writ­ers need to use more of. The can act on the sub­con­scious while the read­er con­tin­ues read­ing the words used. We all know the old adage that a pic­ture paints a thou­sand words. Not all paint a thou­sand words, but they do offer a set­ting for the words that you use. Dia­grams enhance com­plex arti­cles and stop them from becom­ing boring.

Writing:

One of the stat­ed aims of Gob­blede­Goox is to offer thoughts on writ­ing. This is an urge I have to sup­press, espe­cial­ly when I mod­er­ate on a gen­er­al writ­ing site and see some tru­ly awful sub­mis­sions. One les­son I have learned is that it is best not to crit­i­cise when you see errors, but it is pos­si­ble to learn from them.
We all make mis­takes from time to time, the ones that annoy me the most are those that creep up on you, typos, and when your fin­ger fails to make con­tact with the key, leav­ing words short an “s” or a “v”. Writ­ing required con­scious effort all the time.

Headlines:

If you are going to write a blog then you will need to under­stand the pow­er of head­lines. Tweak­ing your titles, just a small amount, makes the dif­fer­ence between gain­ing read­ers or not. What is your best head­line? Think about it. Can you improve it? There are plen­ty of possibilities.

Publicity:

If you think about it for a lit­tle while it’s clear head­lines and pub­lic­i­ty are close­ly inter­re­lat­ed. Do you like your head­line? Is it pow­er­ful? One thing you can be cer­tain about if you look at the head­line in a weeks time when you are pub­li­cis­ing posts then you are less like­ly to pay it seri­ous attention.
Pub­lic­i­ty is vital for the suc­cess of your blog and you will need to use every tool a your dis­pos­al to help your words get the atten­tion they deserve.
The oth­er rea­son for recap­ping these arti­cles here is to offer read­ers access to infor­ma­tion they may have had before yet not realised the impor­tance of. To date there are 98 oth­er posts on Gob­blede­Goox that you may find of some use for. Click on the search but­ton then find what you need.
