Test Your Writing Skills

Writing is one of those things you need to do consistently. The more you write, the better you will get at it. You need to hone your skills in different ways too. Writing articles for Helium is a lot different than writing a blog. Research articles are not the same as articles written from personal interviews.

This weekend I’d like you to spend some time writing a review. You will need to observe your topic, as opposed to researching it. Reviews are very personal, and they can and should include your opinions. When you are completely finished with your review, take the same topic from a different angle, and research it before writing about it, but do not let your personal bias creep into your researched article. This is quite a challenge, but you will be a better writer if you succeed. Good luck!
