Write. – A Lot
Just as the phrase says, “practice makes perfect”. The more you write, the better you will become. If you blog two days per week, try making it a goal to do it three or four. If you cannot come up with topics or areas to blog about, try creating a schedule. This will allow you to plan ahead. Whenever a great idea comes to mind, write it down. You can save these idea for a later post.
Be Open to Feedback
Everyone can be a critic. Whether you like what people have to say or not, it is always a good idea to be open to feedback. Constructive criticism will usually only help you in the long run. Exchange some posts with a fellow blogger. Ask them what is working and what is not. Having an outsider’s perspective on your writing can help you see things you did not see before.
Read in Between the Lines
When you are reading through your posts, really read them. Take the time to make sure it makes sense and that it is of quality writing.

Take notes on the things you did so you can continue to get that kind of positive energy!
