How much has your writing changed?

From your first post to your latest post, do you think you have changed as a writer? If a substantial amount of time has passed between these two (or even if there hasn't) do you feel that you have changed with respect your writing style, to the kind of things you blog about, or to the frequency of your blog posts? What does reading your first posts make you think? (And it might not even be on your current blog...) 

Share your thoughts. :)

Lesser typos and better grammar..........there are still many errors and my guru Aldeena is giving me quiet a training, I'm glad to add I'm improving! Smile

That is nice. :) And yes, obviously, the road to improvement lies through loads of practise...

Excellent topic?!

I think i've shifted poles after starting this blogging. I wanna add, its just my thought! Grammer could have improved, topics i choose, have changed poles for sure, and my outlook of my blog has changed for sure, for much of the earlier part, it was something that killed my boredom, now i take it a bit more seriously!

Thanks Naveen, I noticed some changes in my own writing since 4 months (and a phenomenal change since the earliest blog of mine I could find - blah, I sound like a very irritating kid in that blog) so I was interested to see if others felt the same. 

So, when you say that the topics have changed, do you think more about the people reading? (I do...)

Yup, surely. I think that's visible in my writings too! Atleast i try to make it a point! :D

I feel the same Naveen...I write a little less for myself and a little more for other people. I also review more popular books (though not always - because it depends on what I read.)

I'm a blogger since 2008 and at present, I've successfully completed writing my 27th post of my blog.  Its not really an achievement, I know. I should have done better. Today, I'm recognized as a writer among some of my internet friends! To be frank, it is an achievement. If there is something appreciable in my language today, it is just because of my blog. I used to think a lot in English for blogging and I got a lot of posts in my drafts yet to be published.

What helped me to analyze is a fact that I deleted my first post because of low quality literature and irrelevant sentences. I'm not a good reader(possibly, less than 10 books in 3-4 years) and I'm still adjusting with my available english vocabulary(just truths) . I know, I'm not perfect in what I'm doing but I'm proud to say that I can handle some understandable english today!!

 

Sincerely,

 

Raghu

Hi Raghu, 

One of my friends told me recently that writing letters to her friends really helped her improve her writing skills. I think blogging is about the same. Because you are forced to keep on stringing together sentences, you're likely to become better at writing.

I've been blogging - on and off - since 2006. And I think there is a huge difference. Earlier I used to write posts without any specific topic. Gradually I've tried to establish a niche, but I still wander between themes I write on.

I've deleted most of my first blog posts, some time ago, for a variety of reasons. Whatever it is, I'm proud the way my blog is turning out these days!!!

I think that as our blogs move ahead, we find out a little bit about what matters to us, by finding out the topics we return to again and again after all that we can say has run out. :)

Sometimes, I find most of the posts in my blog... well... good for nothing. I have thought of deleting them a lot of times... But still, I never do that.  Don't know why. Undecided

I started out my blog 2 years back to be a sketching and comic strip blog but I realized I have a thing for writing... As I got more and more followers, I realized I spend more time writing writing a post than before and I realized that spending enough time on each post makes a lot of difference... so my writing process is now more refined which is reflected in my writing too :) 

 

sorry for the boring reply, I have a humor blog :p

I started blogging five years ago when I was a teen. The only change between then and now that I can see in my writing is better vocabulary and more maturity.
