Reading – an essential skill set for writing

If you are a blogger or a writer, one of the most essential habit or skill set that you must have is to read. Confused ?

Well there has to be someplace, from where you need to get an inspiration and reading material can provide you with the same. I have a bad habit of reading while eating and can read almost anything and everything. Except a few literature, which literally puts me to sleep.

When we read, we not only open up our minds, but a lot of times, come across how a same concept can be perceived in a different way. The reason why blogging is different from writing a paper or an article is because blogging is all about writing a persons experience. Now, as an individual we do have different experiences but it is physically not possible for us to note down and write a blog on each and every experience. That is when reading helps. When you read other peoples experience sometimes, it gives you a lot of inspiration and most of the times a new perspective to deal with a tricky situation.

The reason, why people prefer to read a blog over an article, is because they are looking for a real life solution and not a perfect grammatically correct article. Therefore, if you share your ideas with the world, your readers would appreciate that.

Different people have different styles of writing and it is not necessary that everyone writes in the same style. Reading a lot of different styles of writing will also help you bring variety and spice in your own writing, which in turn will help in engaging more readers. Therefore it is important that as a writer you are aware about different styles of writings.

One of the most dangerous things that can ever happen to a blogger is becoming mundane. A blog is not a newspaper. You need to add more variety to it. If you think, that what you write is only the best thing in the world, then extremely sorry that moment begins your downfall. Reading helps you open your mindset.

Well, if you want to succeed as a blogger, it is high time that you start reading.
