Whenever I type blog posts on WordPress, and click on the proofreader to edit my writing, I have seen a pattern consistently in what it tells me that I need to edit in my writing. The proofreader has taught me the 5 things I consistently do when I write and has taught me how I need to improve my writing. It has taught me that as a blogger I need to be more simple with my writing. I tend to use complex writing techniques and am long-winded. I’m still learning and still find myself making these mistakes. Nonetheless, WordPress’ proofreader is teaching me to a better writer. Sometimes it’s hard to break old habits!
The 5 things WordPress proofreader has taught me about my writing:
1. I use many cliches.
2. I like to write in passive voice.
3. I tend to use complex expressions.
4. I insert hidden verbs, and it’s not necessary. This is a mistake I do a lot!
5. I sometimes use redundant expressions.
Above all, out of all 5 of these, this is what I have learned I do most:
