With an increase in growth of social media, there is an increased need for good writing skills. Blogs and other “media” require both useful content and good writing to attract and keep readers.
The fundamentals of good writing are simple: grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. By mastering the rules and conventions, you will make your writing easier to understand and more enjoyable to your readers.
It doesn’t matter if your promoting your personal brand or your business brand — grammar, spelling and punctuation represents you in the world. It sends the reader a message about your knowledge and attention to detail. It’s a signal that says, I do good work. You are making the right choice in hiring me/buying from me/retaining my services.
On the flip-side, poor grammar makes you look careless. People are going to make judgments on your competence and intelligence based on your grammar, whether they realize it or not.
Back on 12/8/18, I posted a blog “Expect and Except the Challenge – No Excuses.”
A little over a year later, I realized that should have been “Accept” the challenge. I guess, luckily, no one reads my blog. I do hope that changes, so I better start paying attention to my own writing.
