Brian Clark of Copyblogger writes some amazing posts, and in his most recent post, he talks about spicing up blog posts, something that some writers sorely need.
Use Sensuous Language – use words to bring things to life ala “the fear crawled down my spine creating an all encompassing shiver.”
Employ High Impact Wording – use words that aren’t being used in the everyday like monumental.
Be Entertaining – funny is hard, but when it works, it can create a strong connection between the writer and readers.
