My writing tips would be:
1. Perform thorough research before penning down anything
2. Keep the writing style interactive to engage more readers
3. Make use of excellent grammar
4. Proof Read before finalizing, if possible do it the next day
5. Edit all errors, or parts that don't appear to convincing
6. Write because you love to write, and not because it is your breadearner

Ok, thanx! But what to use for cheking the style. Not native speakers (as me) often use long sentences to describe something, you know?! So I need some source to follow advices how to write.

For ex. John is a good man so because of that people love them.

Shorter way: People love John. He is a good man. And he know that.

Huge difference. :-)

Sources

I write fast with spellcheker off. Sorry about tipfelers.

Ppl love him not love them. :-) John I mean. :-)

There are a lot of online writing sources, which you can search of course. I don't know if pasting external links is allowed here or not, else I would have done that. But no training would improve your writing style as long as you don't practice. So, practice... write more and more. Also, read good magazines and newspapers (preferably editorials). Adapt. There is no shortcut to success. So, once again. It's practice.

Like right now, your last sentence had a few spelling mistakes. If you'd have read your sentence twice before posting you may have avoided them. That's proofreading. I'll email you some sources, soon.

I use Grammarly so I do not have spelling mistakes when post. :-)

And do not forget to point at grammar mistakes when see them. :-)

Hi @Rachel123, I suggest that you must conduct an intensive research about your subject. Research all things related to your topic from 5Ws and H, then find what is less touched. It can be your potential angle. Research what you don't understand. Then, you do your outline, so you have a direction. Don't forget to be conversational in tone. If you are saying that you are not a native speaker, you can study idioms and English slang. Thesaurus and dictionary are also there to help you expand your vocabulary. You can do it, just read everyday. Cheers and good luck!

I wholeheartedly suggest Grammarly. It will help you compose your sentences the best way, use tenses properly and avoid typos.

I like Thesaurus!!! I use it regullary. :-) I am worried abuut style. All ppl write differently only I have no sense how did I write something. Well I do feel a bit but when write in Croatian I know for sure did I make a good job or not. I do read and discuss with ppl ob different topics and I can see an improvement for so far. Thanx for helping me out. I am in mobile now, so forget about spelling mistakes. I check that if I am on the computer. I know it's important not to make any.

If you're writing is not good enough to engage people when they visit your website.

Far too many website owners create poor content themselves because they simply are not good writers.

Hiring a professional writer is so cheap nowadays that I simply cannot understand why people prefer to destroy their business futures to save a few dollars.

If I use proffesional it would be fake because my personality is included into the content. I have no problem when writing in my language. I know I write good. But of course, I don't have the same self-comfidence when wtite is English. I use Grammarly when check grammar. Reading and practising ia very helpful.

Hi again Rachel. If you want to be a "pro" writer, I suggest you read Elements of Style by Strunk and White or AP Stylebook. Ebooks are free! You must also start small by practicing formal writing. You must forget sms or chat style of writing in your posts as initiative.

Hope you learned something. Good luck on your writing endeavor.

And regarding style, it depends on the medium and your target readers. Should you write online, I think a conversational tone is better. You can study idioms and slangs. I am also reading tons of blog everyday and observe how they set the tone and mood--especially the "lead" or the first paragraph You cannot learn how to write if you don't urge yourself to READ a lot.

Thanx! I read a lot. Trust me. I enjoy reading. :-) Yes, that is the besrmt way. And listening as well. Videos, movies and stuff.

Web out are you not English native speaker? I mean if you are then writing goes naturally if you have sense for the language. I write from mobile so can's see if you have yr page included to signature. What do you write for? Thank you for recommendation for the books. :-)
