Blogging has improved my writing skills

I know it seems pretty obvious, but still I am excited. You see I have never been a very good writer, people who I grew up with never believe me when I tell them that AOL actually pays me to blog. I have never had trouble getting good at anything I put my mind too and although I usually am not the best ever, I do alright. But there is something about writing that has always escaped me, I would like to think that it is because I never really committed myself to it. I never intended to start blogging in fact when I approached Kevin Tofel about doing a HD podcast and he asked me if I would be willing to blog for HD Beat, he actually had to explain to me what a blog was. I attribute any blogging skill I have to him as he was a great coach and helped me find my voice. It looks like all this work might have paid off and I mean other than the payment advices I get from AOL. You see I still take college courses — you could say I am on the 15 year plan and I just received earned the highest grade on any written assignment in my life. Part of this is because I convinced my instructor to let me write a essay on the current format war, no he doesn’t read my work, but part of it is because my wife proof reads my essays and the last part, the 10% part that makes a B and A is my improved writing skill, or maybe it is his lax grading technique. Either way I did better than the class average and I have the Internet to thank, so thanks.

  1. You know, it’s funny how we spend all those early years in school learning how to read, write, etc…. and then we grow up and don’t use those skills as much. Like any attribute, the less you use a skill, the more you lose the skill. Great to see that you’re writing has improved (which it has) and that it’s paying off in college as well! 🙂
