5 Self-Editing Hacks to Boost Your Blog Writing (+ a FREE Checklist!)

5 Self-Editing Hacks to Boost Your Blog Writing

Self-editing is a great option if you’re a blogger but can’t afford to hire an editor.

Editors aren’t cheap! Sure, they can improve your writing, and even teach you a few things about sentence structure and grammar. They can even boost your writing so that your post ranks higher.

However, you might not have the money to spend on an editor, especially if you are a new blogger.

But that’s no excuse for not editing your writing!

So what you should you do?

Self-edit! That’s what!

My guest today will show you 5 self-editing hacks you can use to boost your blog writing.

Open Oceans of Opportunity by Being Vulnerable and Honest

Open Oceans of Opportunity By Being Vulnerable and Honest

Have you ever wanted to reveal a secret about yourself but were too scared to?

Have you ever wanted to share something personal online but didn’t, because you were afraid of being harassed, made fun of, or maybe even attracting a stalker?

Here’s some good news.

It’s okay to be afraid.

It’s OKAY to be Afraid. (We all are, at some point!)

It’s also okay to share personal stuff.

In fact, people LIKE it when you do.

Seriously!

(I know, I was surprised at this too!)

People genuinely like it when you expose your vulnerabilities and share your innermost thoughts and private experiences. It gives them a sense of entitlement.

More importantly, they feel closer to you, learn that you are a real person, baggage and all.

They also deem you as brave and appreciate you more.

And they love you for it.

Because I have been through so much in my life, I wanted to offer my personal pieces of wisdom to you… because I know what it’s like to be in a position of uncertainty.

I was scared, once upon a time, of revealing things about myself to the world.

When I Ignored My Fear, My Posts Went Viral

4 Phases to a Successful Online Author’s Life (+ how to become an author)

4 Phases to a Successful Online Author’s Life (+ how to become an author)

Becoming an author involves 4 phases, and if you’re a blogger, you’re already an author, of sorts…

When you publish a blog post, you are the “author” of that post. But being an author who sells e-books is a completely different story… but it doesn’t have to be.

You can be a blogger or a freelance writer who is also an author!

You don’t have to write fiction; you can write self-help books, motivational books, or anything else that suits your talents and knowledge.

Look at Ryan Biddulph, the guy behind Blogging from Paradise. He’s a blogger who turned most of his blog posts into e-books… and earns passive income from his book sales!

Look at Alicia Rades. She’s a freelance writer who is also a fiction author.

Look at me. I self-published a book of short stories (Risky Issues)… just to see if I could actually figure out the whole self-publishing process on my own. In fact, a blind man motivated me to make it available in print instead of just as an e-book.

After learning the steps of the self-publishing process, I then helped this blind man (Maxwell Ivey) self-publish not one but two books. Take a look at his books! One is an 11-step guide to business success. The other is an easy-to-follow guide to weight loss success.

This is the final cover for Max's ebook, Leading You Out of the Darkness Into the Light.

Now look at Dave Chesson. He’s a guy who became a best-selling author… by writing under pen names (pseudonyms), which, unfortunately, he won’t reveal to you here.

However, he will reveal the different stages he has gone through as both an online writer and an author… so that YOU can see where YOU are currently at… if you want to become an author too.

***Note that I can help you, as I offer author assistant services in addition to my writing and editing services!***

Do YOU Need Some Writing Inspiration?

Do you want or need to write, but are feeling less than inspired?

I’ve been there plenty of times.

You get rid of all the distractions, tidy up your desk, focus on the job at hand and… nothing. You have writer’s block. You don’t know what to do.

The solution: check out some of these websites dedicated to writers and writing to get re-inspired.

(An alternate solution is to hire a freelance writer to help you!)

1. The Story Starter

The reason why you may lose your writing inspiration is because you are writing about the same stuff over and over again, and never venturing outside your niche. The Story Starter will enable you to do that, by generating a random sentence that will become the starter for your new story. It’s an incredibly fun exercise, as it’s always able to come up with interesting story starters.

“There is always, always, always something to write about.”
