janlgordon's curator insight, April 18, 8:45 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because she explains the importance of carefully editing your blog posts.

 

Improve your writing with quality content.

 

How to Effectively Edit Your Articles

 

It's tempting to hit the publish button right away after writing a blog post. I agree that in order to make the best of it you need to carefully look your copy over first.

 

Elliott explains the process of how to edit your articles and improve your writing at the same time.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • It's important to first do planning and research before the writing begins. Use an outline of the structure with a beginning, middle, and end.

 

  • After writing a post give yourself some time to process it. Save the editing process after you have completed your article.

 

  • Read your completed work out loud to yourself. Notice the flow of the piece, and whether there were any mistakes you may have missed.
