If you’re wondering how you can improve grammar and vocabulary with blogging, then let me tell you that blogging can do wonders if you’re passionate about it.
If you’re like me who loves blogging, then you’re starting off on a right foot, but if you don’t feel enthusiasm about blogging, then you better find your passion or do some due diligence before stepping into blogging.
The rest of the blog post is about leveraging the process of blogging to become good at grammar and vocabulary. Money isn’t the only end-result that you may get in blogging. There are many perks of being successful at blogging. A lot of successful bloggers believe that money is a byproduct; you get to build connections with others, transform their careers, help them get through some problems, and change their lives through your craft.
Now I’ll dig deep into some facts that will reveal how blogging could improve your grammar and vocabulary.
How Blogging Can Improve Grammar and Vocabulary
There are four steps that you need to take to get started with improving your grammar and vocabulary:
1. Kickstart the Process of Writing
Nothing can improve your writing skill better than the practice of writing. When you start off writing a blog, you put yourself on a pedestal to get exposed to the audience. You might have fears of being judged, or you may not want to be embarrassed by your grammar mistakes. One of the benefits of start writing is that you get focused and when you proofread your content, you instantly find a few mistakes or typos. It would not have been possible without starting it.
2. Read Blogs and Books
I can’t stress enough that how reading blogs and books transform your writing. Not only will it improve your grammar and vocabulary, but it will also educate you on sentence structuring. When a non-native English writer starts off writing, the problem a writer faces is the sentence structuring. Reading a variety of blogs would help you overcome this problem. Similarly, I recommend reading the books of best-selling authors in your favorite genre. You’ll learn how to start the discussion and finish off the topic.
3. Use a Grammar Tool
Having a reliable grammar checking tool is a blessing for a blogger. There are so many grammar tools out there, but I have only used Grammarly so far. It’s the best tool for improving your grammar and sentence building. I’m not saying this because I’m an affiliate of Grammarly — in fact; this tool played a huge role in transforming my blog writing. I’ve used both free and paid versions of Grammarly. I highly recommend using the paid edition of Grammarly. Feel free to test out more tools. If you find a great tool like Grammarly, please do share with me in the comments section of this blog post.
4. Search Idioms and Phrases in Google
Searching idioms and phrases in Google will come in handy. You might have heard a phrase on Netflix that you didn’t get it. Try searching that phrase in Google with this formula: phrase + meaning. For example, see this and that. The use of idioms and phrases would not just make your point clear, but it would also show your writing skill.
