Many people say that writing articles is an easy task and anyone can write articles. I do agree that anyone can write articles but not everyone can write quality articles and that’s the reason why few bloggers get more traffic and regular readers and few don’t.

The main reason for the difference in quality articles in the way in presenting the articles and your articles must have substance which can show your confidence about the knowledge you are sharing. Of course no writer is perfect but while presenting article in front of your reader, you must be confident enough that your article is worth sharing.
If you are lacking confidence while writing article, here are quick working tips to get your confidence back:
Know what you are writing:
Writing do need proper planning, you just can’t start writing for fun. To get confidence in what you are writing make sure you find a nice topic for your article, get knowledge about that topic, make outline of points which you want to share, proof read the article and read it loud. This will help you to correct mistakes and build confidence that what you are sharing is good and useful for your readers.
Handle negative comments:
We all get negative comments may be about the typo mistakes, article lacking in quality or presentation or because of any other reason. When I started blogging, I used to lose confidence with such negative comments. But with time, I understood that making mistakes is part of every job and more important is to learn from those mistakes, this will help you to become a better writer.
Got a negative comment, what next? If you think that the negative comment from readers is genuine then do try to improve on it but make sure that you don’t take it personally. Whenever I do mistakes, I correct it and keep in mind that it I should not repeat it again. Anyways you can’t please everyone with your writing, someone will like it and someone won’t and this is the fact of blogging.
No one is expert:
If you are losing confident because you think that you are not an expert then you need to rethink about it. When it comes to writing, even experts do mistakes and as a human being we all do mistakes. Thus always aim to be a better writer rather than aiming to be an expert writer.
Start with a bang:
Even after getting negative comments, doing mistakes the best way to overcome lack of confidence in writing is to start afresh. It is important that you believe in yourself and get ready to try writing article again. The only thing you can do to become a better and confident writer is to write, write and write. Don’t let yourself down and start writing article with lots of positive energy.
Writing is all about believing in yourself that you can provide quality content to your readers and above tips are works very well for me when it comes to gaining confidence while writing articles.
