10 Modern Editing Tips for Meticulous Bloggers

Very good tips.

Quote:
I watch a lot of YouTube videos about the best ways to clean your bathroom.
In fact, I realized that I spend way more time watching “hacks, tricks, and tips” about how to efficiently clean a bathroom than I do actually cleaning my bathroom.

Given the hundreds of thousands of views on these types of videos, perhaps it’s not just me. And I started thinking … this might be similar to bloggers who read about editing tips.

Editing, like cleaning a bathroom, isn’t always the most fun, so bloggers might spend more time reading about editing tips than actually implementing them.

We’d like to have a polished bathroom or a polished blog post — we just don’t always want to perform the work required to produce that shiny end result.

The 10 modern editing tips I’ll share today should invigorate you to put in the elbow grease … at least when it comes to your writing.

"As you examine your draft, vary your word choice and fine-tune your language throughout your post — especially at the beginning of paragraphs."

I wish more people would take note of this as it does my head in reading posts that have the same opening for every <p>. Plus it also messes up with your optimisation (if you write optimised posts that is).

Synonyms aren't always the best choice either, and in many cases it can be worse than using the same phraseology repetitiously. Spun content uses this method.

I like to use questions at the beginning of paragraphs, joint affirmations, rhetorical statements etc etc.

I actually love editing.

Also, I'd like to add one more thing that I always do.

Send it to some else to read it before publishing.

When you spend few days writing an article you can't see your mistakes anymore, so it's a good idea to give it to a friend or a colleague to take a look.

Especially if they are better in grammar than you - it's a great opportunity to learn something new.
