Developing your voice means stamping your own style in all your blog posts, blog comments, Twitter messages and in all other social media sites where you leave your digital foot print.
Ah, yes, by looking at your digital foot prints, people should say who it belong to.
If you want to develop your voice as a blogger or even an article writer (yes, blog posting and article writing are different) the first thing you should decide is how you are going to show your emotions (appreciation, criticism, sarcasm), how decently but firmly you are going to convey them and start writing your text based on that.
You will not come to say firmly, ‘this is my style’ after publishing a few of your blog posts. You will find it out only after several months (provided you have been active), after having tried out various styles.
Invariably, you will change your style after becoming serious in blogging and start reading others’ blog posts of which some may vibrate with you positively. You will find yourself nodding your head as you read such blog posts. You will remember who the points conveyed in such blog posts get etched in your memory even after a couple of weeks.
Therefore, start finding blogs of your niche, identify blogs that echo your emotions and views and openly leave your feedback. Mention them in your blog posts, direct people to what you liked and what helped you in some way.
Now, you are beginning to slowly developing your voice.
Of course it is needless to say that in order to develop your voice is to practice writing as frequently as possible. To be precise, 3 blog posts a week is really idea. Anything more might be tedious and anything less is not a search engine and reader friendly habits.
Write about anything but always try to adhere to your style; the more you practice writing, the better your ability to express your ideas will become.
It is not always easy to find the right words to express what’s in your mind. Building vocabulary is a must for all kinds of writers-isn’t it? Reading English classics would certainly help anyone bent on fine tuning their writing skill.
I used to take a day off every week and read my favorite authors that include O.Henry, Somerset Maugham, Oscar Wilde, Ayn Rand and Arthur Conon Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes). After reading them, my vocabulary bank would be replenished and I would pick up new ideas to begin my blog post.
Finally, the development of your own style will depend on how you are developed spiritually. I firmly believe that one’s life takes shape depending on the level of spiritual development, on the life and experiences you have had that made you what you are today.
As a blogger, I never fail to include my own opinions and experiences into the blog posts and articles I write with 100% honesty. I am of the opinion that it is the only way that would establish your own voice and also distinguish you from the so called ‘run-of-the-mill’ blog writers.
