Chapter 12. Better Blogging > Finding Your Voice

Finding Your Voice

For some people, writing is as natural as talking. For others, it takes a little getting used to. If you are new to blogging and you’re not accustomed to writing for an audience, you might feel that your posts are awkward, clunky, and not really what you meant to say. This can result in a kind of writer’s block where you repeatedly start and then delete sentences because they don’t seem right.

Still other first time bloggers are afflicted with a kind of stage fright. Their thoughts, emotions, and opinions are going to be readily available to the entire world at the click of a button. And that can be intimidating. What if I come across as some kind of know-it-all? What if people don’t “get” me and just think I’m a jerk? What if my sixth grade English teacher reads my blog and finds out that I’m still a bad speller? There are a million reasons not to venture forth in your new independent publishing career.
