Introducing… Writing Tips

For a while now, I have been thinking of how I could add some helpful content to this blog as a way of giving back to the blogging community, which has been so wonderfully welcoming and supportive ever since publishing that first post almost a year ago. Plenty of bloggers offer tips on creating a cohesive Instagram feed or how to turn your blog into a business but I’m definitely not experienced or established enough to offer advice on something that I am still learning myself. I’ve seen beautiful self-care posts for introverts and marketing tips for businesses but, again, neither of these topics are things that I would feel confident instructing on myself. Then, somewhere out of the blue, I put two and two together and came up with writing tips.

It makes complete sense. I have been writing ever since I can remember – and not just because I had to. My evenings after school were spent crafting the latest Mary-Kate and Ashley adventures, a reflection of the compelling life I longed for as an introverted tween. In secondary school, we were set the task of writing a story on a Mexican family migrating to the USA; I wrote seven extra pages about their American Dream. Fast forward to university and those homework projects and fan fiction attempts became fully-researched essays, where words flowed from my fingertips on historical linguistics and I revelled in forming strings of sentences that somehow made sense. Now, as an aspiring writer and linguist-in-training, I want to offer some small and humble tips on how to improve your own writing. From finding the right tense to using apostrophes correctly, I hope that anyone who is a little unsure can benefit from this new adventure on Blushing Lately!

 

 

I’m excited to launch this new project and hope that it is something you will enjoy, too! I have a few ideas for my first tips but I would to love to hear if you have any suggestions. I also really hope that this doesn’t come across as arrogant in any way – it is simply another way for me to expand my writing experience while offering something back in return to my lovely readers.

What are your thoughts on offering advice to readers?

    Such a lovely idea! I have just started my own blog after sitting on the fence for ages about creating one! I have no idea what I’m doing and I have no idea what to write but I’m just taking it as it goes!
