5 Writing Rules Every Must Know

If you want to be a great blogger and have a successful career, these are 5 grammar rules for bloggers. It’s fluid and always changing.

Oh, and I also remember being the kid who turned in homework on time and was always eager to answer any questions my teacher had. That all changed when I went to high school.

The Changing Words and Meanings

Bloggers tend to speak directly to their readers. It is a good thing. It’s a way for me to feel more at ease and allows me to connect with my readers on an individual level.

You might encounter words you don’t usually use in high school book reports. They may seem too juvenile, or even not a word.

Let’s have a look and see if you like them.

Very – Very This is a word that would be crossed out if used in school writing. It would also come with a note advising you not to use this adverb. Online writing is different. Very Can help with

    • Emotions are expressed through a story, product, or item.
    • Your audience will notice the difference.
    • Amplifying your nouns and verbs
  1. Hopefully – hopefully is a traditional word that means “in a hopeful way”, as I hoped for the show’s start. However, hopefully, has been used to modify the entire sentence. We’ll have a chance to see the Grand Canyon next summer. You can use it hopefully at the start of a sentence.
  2. Alright, alright, technically isn’t even a word. is the correct. However, alright is now a popular word for writing.

2. Your Sentences can End in a Preposition

Do you find yourself gnashing your teeth at the thought of this?

I can recall being taught throughout the school that ending sentences with a preposition could drop your paper’s grade by a whole letter. For fear of receiving a C or worse, I made sure I never finished any sentences with an a.

But I quickly learned that the grammar myth is not to end a sentence with a preposition after starting my business as a freelance writer and mom-at-home mom.

Don’t be afraid of a lecture from your teacher! You can also end sentences with a preposition.

If they are not necessary, don’t add them. You don’t have to say, for example.

Jane got up from her bed to get her morning cup of coffee.

Drop instead of, and say

Jane got up from her bed to get her morning cup of coffee.

3 You can start a sentence with andand but

  • another rule that will make you cringe.
  • I can tell you that I was embarrassed when other bloggers or freelance writers began their sentences with andand. I wondered why didn’t they learn Coordinating Conjunctions in school?
  • FANBOYS is the way to go for those who haven’t learned that lesson. This is not the Next One Direction. FANBOYS stands for seven coordinating conjunctions that are for and, nor, but or, yet, so. These words are used to join words and phrases within a sentence.
  • You can start your sentences with or, but it is also an option if it suits what you want to say stylistically.

4 Exclamation Point the Blog Post Up!

  • Recent changes in the user’s experience with online content have led to a preference for more exclamation marks. It doesn’t end there. They are now commonplace in emails, texts and any other standard written greeting.
  • Why do we use exclamation points to bombard our readers? You use emphatic punctuation to communicate your tone.

Use exclamation marks, as most people read your posts in a hurry.

  • This tool helps readers find subtle information that could benefit them.
  • Multiple exclamation points will attract readers’ attention to your post.
  • You should make sure that your readers have the best information possible!

Don’t think twice about it when you write your next blog post. Your readers will appreciate your sincerity, and they’ll return the favor by leaving comments!
