Why Should Newbie Bloggers keep On Reading

You must be reading everywhere about writing, how to write well, how to write engaging content, how to structure your post etc.

But did you ever think that apart from writing, reading is also important for bloggers, Especially for newbie bloggers. Yes never ignore reading because continuous reading can benefit you in many ways.

Let’s discuss why should bloggers keep on reading:-

1. Enhance Writing Skills:- The most beneficial thing you get from continuous reading is improvement in writing skills. Yes you read it right, Reading surely improves writing.

When you read other blogger’s blog then you can notice that everyone has their own style of writing, by reading them you can get flexibility in your writing. It also improves your vocabulary which is beneficial for good writing.

If you miss out the reading part then you will not come to know about different styles if writing. Initially I amazed to see how people write 1000 word articles. And whenever I sit to write then I ended up myself within 100-200 words but as I started reading blogs like writetodone, youngprepro, daily writing tips, dailyblogtips etc then I learnt how to write well and how to write longer and engaging posts.

You can see that now I always write posts not less than 700 words. I don’t mean that writing longer post is everything but yes if you will write a good post then it will surely cross 600-700 words.

In short, I want to say even if you don’t write daily but keep on reading on daily basis, you will feel improvement in yourself for sure.

2. Reduce Stress: There are times in every blogger’s life when they can feel stressed because of traffic, running out of blog post ideas and other issues. Then I just suggest either you turn off your laptop and go for a walk for friends or just sit and start reading blogs in your niche without taking any stress. You will feel relieved and also may get an idea for your next post.

Believe me when you keep on brainstorming for ideas and if you are not getting any idea then you feel like quitting but this is the time you have to control yourself.

In this situation just forget about writing and just start reading and don’t write for 2-3 days. Just keep on reading and after 2-3 days you will feel a new energy in yourself and you will feel motivated which inspire you towards blogging.

3. Ideas for new blog posts: I already wrote above that you can get ideas for your new post while reading. Yes reading always gives you new ideas about writing posts for your own blog.

For this you should be reading the best blogs in your niche. Like If you are having technology blog then you must read mashable, techcrunch, lifehacker, gizmodo etc. Reading these kind of blogs will get you hell lot of ideas which you can use to write your next post.

4. Increase Concentration level: Remember the days when you were studying in class 10th or lower classes, you would have been always struggling with concentrating on studies(as this is very childish age and you always want not to study) but as you start reading something then you used to concentrate on the topic to understand that.

It means for reading you need concentration and as you read more you concentrate more. So start reading and concentrating. Gradually You will feel that your concentration level has been increased.

5. Enhance Knowledge: There is no need to write more on this point because its simple as the headline “Enahance Knowledge”, its obvious if you read so many blog posts, news etc then your knowledge must be enhanced.

These are the few benefits of reading. These are must for newbie bloggers because a newbie should have good knowledge, should have good concentration level, should be good in writing, should get new ideas and should be stress free.

So I think by continuous reading all the newbies should develop these skills and keep blogging like a star.

  • Reading in that case is a good habit for everyone. It helps broaden your horizons of mind and increases knowledge which is very imporatnt before you start blogging or writing posts and articles. A specific research needs to be conducted over the topic we want to write about and books help for that.

  • Hi Sandeep,

    You really got something in your writing bro. Whenever I read your posts I don’t feel bored even if they are lengthy one.

    Coming back to post:
    The above tips are not only for a Newbie but also for a PRO. As there is an old saying “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”.

    I don’t have a habit of reading but I’ll try to implement it soon.

    Thanks for the awesome tips.

  • Its really important for a blogger to read continuously even if he/she is newbie or a pro-blogger. 🙂

  • Newbie bloggers generally face the problem with new ideas for writing articles after they start the blog. So good suggestion is they should keep reading other well established blogs and get updated with the latest available technology.

  • Hey Atish,
    I too have always stressed on reading as the most important prerequisite to writing. By checking out different blogs, we get to know the current trends in writing which are quite crucial before donning the blogger’s hat. Apart from blogs, novels are always the way to go in order to develop decent writing skills. Take the most famous ones for instance; read any Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic followed with a gem by Dan Brown. We’ll notice a striking contrast in the language used by each of the stalwarts. This difference will induce a spark of creative thought within us.

  • It is always better to polish our skills and other writing techniques before we start blogging because we usually plan to continue it for the long run and higher profits. When we go through multiple books, we come across many new facts we never knew and thus it helps us develop our content for new articles working as a good influence and inspiration.

  • Practice is the key for perfection. You cannot become the best in the business in just one day. To become an expert you have to put years and years of hard work and dedication. The best way to learn something is by observing other peoples work and understanding their strengths and weaknesses and applying them in your own work. By following this method, in time, you will eventually become better in what you do.

  • Hi Atish,

    I really enjoyed reading your post.
    Reading is so very important when developing your writing skills and it is also a great source for creating content for your blog posts.

    It is very common for newbies to get “stuck” not knowing what to write about. I think your suggestion of taking a break and being with friends is a good way to spark new ideas and get the creative energy flowing.

    I look forward to reading more of your post Atish and thank you for stopping by my blog today and sharing your thoughts on making videos…perhaps I will see you on video soon 🙂

  • I immediately thought of learning when I read this Atish. Boy have I learned a lot just from reading blog posts. It hasn’t really helped me with writing but it has given me great ideas, I’ve been able to connect with some awesome people and learn a heck of a lot.

    I totally agree with you on this one so even for non newbies, reading is still a must.

  • Hi Atish,

    Great blog post! I experienced a lot of times where I don’t know what to write about and its really bad because it would delay posting. So now, whenever I have an idea for a new blog post, I quickly write it down and when I have the time I will write out a draft. It came in so handy that I now have so many topics to write about that I wish I could post one up everyday. But I don’t want to do that, I’ll keep it to once a week posting 🙂 I have my trusty notebook in my purse everyday and everywhere I go lol.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Reading is a great a way to improve your vocabulary as well as your writing skill. Reading helps you keep up with the latest happening in the world so can write on current hot topics. It helps you get topic for your new articles and inspires you to write better blogs. When you are reading continuously on various topics the ideas just start pouring.

  • Every writer no matter if he is an established one or a newbie, they should read whatever they can lay their hands on, like blogs, newspapers, novels, etc. This practice will not only help them improve their vocabulary and grammar but will also keep them updated about the current news about the world and also about their niche. That will really help them to come up with some informative article.

  • Reading is always a good way to unwind yourself. From childhood I had developed the habit of reading novels before I go to sleep which I still continue. Believe me it is a very good thing. It not only improves your language but also enhances your creativity. It actually helps your write better articles.

  • When you keep reading books you get better at writing articles. It increases your vocabulary like anything. It also helps you in coming up with new ideas for your blog. The only advice that I can give you is that don’t limit yourself to a particular genre. Always try reading books of different genre. And reading newspapers everyday is also a good exercise to improve your language.

  • I love reading. It doesn’t matter what it is, may it be novels, comics, blogs or newspapers as long as I get something to read I am fine and happy. I actually cannot sleep without reading something at night. It is a habit that I developed long time ago and it is something that I am proud of.

  • Reading is a good way to come up with new ideas for your blog. When you read a novel it has the ability to take you to a whole new world where everything is magical. And if you can clearly imagine what the surrounding is like that too in detail it actually becomes easy to describe it in your own words. It really helps in developing your imagination.
