    2. Write Early in the morning

    This is something like interesting. As I have analysed many serious and professional writers and Bloggers do prefers to write their contents in the morning time. Morning time allows them to write fresh stuffs. More over morning atmosphere seems quite quiet and energetic, which can helps them to improve their Article writing skills right away. Give it a try and feels the fresh experience of being a healthy writer. I’m sure it won’t hurt you.

    3. Be a Good Reader

    This is the most mandatory thing for the one who wants to build their career in Writing or in Blogging. You have to be a good reader. With this your mind will allow you to create your own thoughts and let allow yourself available to write on your particular topics. There are many more blogs available to follow, having some really good and informative contents.

    “YOU are what you read and Write!”

    4. Be Simple

    For generating good traffic on your contents your way of writing should be simple enough. For that express your views in a simple and appropriate way. This will helps visitors or readers in a good manner.

    5. Complete your articles in various stages

    One who wants to be a famous with his contents, have to follow some serious stages while he is writing his article. Every blogger knows writing an article takes much time and every blogger and writer have to let pass on their articles through many stages. Firstly you have to analyse your topic that you’re going to write on it. Secondly you have to make a list of some ideas of related topic. Thirdly you need to complete sentences and paragraphs of your article, related to your topic. Fourthly you need to edit your article and let clear all the queries. Lastly proofreading is must.

    These were the stages to follow while you’re writing on a single topic. Be sure these all stages needs some specific time. For that you need to make your own schedule for following above stages. And then it will become a healthy content for sure.

    6. Write in a Distraction Free location

    Many bloggers have many more accounts in many social networking sites and have many more other things which can easily distract their mind while they’re about to write an article. And I’m sure that you are having the same. For that you should keep your location where you can find out some peaceful atmosphere around you. Try to avoid your Social networking activities and mobile phones while you’re writing something. Distraction free location keeps you motivated to write healthy contents. If you really wish to pimp up your Article writing skills and speed, I would recommend to write using any Distraction free software. You can use tools like Windows live writer and close all other windows. Or you can use WordPress Distraction Free writing option.

    7. Go smoothly

    To create better and attractive content try not to edit while you are creating your article – just go with the flow of your thoughts. There are some mind tricks working here. Creating and editing content works in different sides of the brain.

    8. Research well before Writing

    I have mentioned above, some stages to go through when writing on your selected topic. Before you start, do very through research on the particular topic on which you are going to write. It will increase your knowledge of that topic and you will be able to write freely and informtively. Having deeper knowledge keeps you unique in this field.

    9. Give yourself a specific amount of time

    Though after having all the knowledge and all the researched stuffs you need to be specific yourself. I know you’re quite a busy person for that you have to separate some time and give some specific time to your writing skills. You must have to be specific in time for grasping deeper knowledge, writing articles, marketing them etc. It will allows you to become a famous one. This is not just a one day business, for that you need to start this activity A.S.A.P., everyday!

    10. Note down your research

    This is essential for writing on a particular topic. As I have mentioned above, writing is not an easy task and can’t be finished in a single stage. While you are researching a writing topic, you must keep notebook and a pen for noting down some eye-catching sentences related to your topic. It will keep your readers interested in reading your articles. This is a must-have skill for all professional writers and bloggers.

    11. Write Regularly

For that you need to follow the above steps and I’m sure these tips will be helpful for you all in future. So, have some patience and make yourself available for writing on a regular basis.

All you need to take is your first move. Don’t worry about your skills and all, just go and jump into Blogsphere and be a hard learner.

    bloggers need to articulate their views and solution for general problems through their posts. At times, it could get hard to keep up the pace with other activities and writing high quality articles so it’s better to always have a schedule and fixed priority for the tasks in hand. Thanks for sharing these useful tips,

    You have outline very potential and to-the-point tips for Article Writing. However, i must add that for article writing, you always need motivation and spirit. Excellence don’t come in just one day, you need to be patient and need to work on your errors to rectify your problems. I must say that the most common problem, most people are facing is run-off sentences and grammar. Therefore, one must comprehend the true concepts of article writing and should implement them with right pace to get the optimum results.
