How To Write Articles - For Fun
Article writing is not a fun activity for most people, especially those who have to write every day for a living. In fact it can be a hard job. For people who have no confidence in their writing skills it seems impossible to have fun at this particular activity.
Learning how to write articles for fun needs to be a fun activity in itself. That doesn't mean that all writing will go smoothly and effortless. Putting effort into something can be fun too. In fact most people have the greatest amount of fun when they have to work really hard.
Just look at the many marathon runners. Out of the thousands that enter and complete the London marathon at least half of the competitors are there to have fun. Ask them half way through their race why they are doing this, they will probably tell you that they must have been mad in the head.
Ask them again at the end of the race when they have finished and they will be full of smiles and telling you what great fun it's been. Hard work doesn't stop anybody from having fun.
So what could possibly be fun about writing an article? The fun is about achieving something, having something we created out there. That's why there are so many blogs out there. It is the first time that everybody can show their creativity.
It is a chance for you the writer to make a small creative mark. Sure, some bloggers can even make a very big mark. But for the ordinary folk out there who are not natural born creative people and in your face self-serving sales people, the internet world allows us to be creative and be guaranteed to have an audience.
Of course you have to work for the audience and promote your blog so that you are visible. But provided you do that, you will find that there will be people that visit your blog and who reward your efforts at writing with praise and with return visits.
That's what makes writing articles fun. It's getting recognition for your work, your effort and your creativity. Something that you might not get in a boring job, at home even, or amongst your friends.
It allows you to shine even if you never shone at school or at college. Even if you have a boring job that doesn't allow you one moment of individualism writing an article on your blog can become your moment where you can show the world that you do have a worth while opinion, that you have a creative streak and that you are worth listening to.
Learning how to write articles for fun should be number one on your list of skills to learn. You will hate it at times because it's not easy. You will be hurt if somebody leaves a critical comment on your blog. But most of all you will love the fact that you as a person have left your mark. So go for it!
