Content Creation: How to Find the Right Voice

Content Creation: How to Find the Right Voice

A seasoned content creator has, or should have, a writer's voice that speaks to the reader in a relevant way.

Creating an article without a voice is similar to eating a sandwich without any contents. Two slices of plain bread connected together may serve to satisfy hunger, but they do not offer any excitement to the taste buds.

Similarly, a good article needs to jump out at the reader and catch the person's mental and emotional attention. Content must captivate its audience.

Creating intriguing content applies even if the author writes a product description of a children's swing set, or an article about the merits of using an Ethernet connection.

Why Writing About Boring Topics is a Good Thing

New writers who have not yet found their voices can discover hidden talents when writing about dull subjects. When a writer can take a boring topic and turn it into an interesting read, the author has achieved a good measure of success.

The old saying about practice making perfect applies to sound writing. Content creators should write often about different and challenging subjects.

After writing several articles for a few months, or even years, some authors eventually discover their writing voices that help them produce even better content.

An Ounce of Respect is Worth a Pound of Approval

In an immense sea filled with content writers, excellent authors need to gain the respect of clients and readers. The best way to cultivate a good reputation as a content author is to write compelling articles based on excellent research.

Make a false statement, and intelligent readers will immediately recognize the error. A content creator needs to have a code of ethics. When the writer's moral code conveys honest thoughts, put into precise words, readers notice the difference. 

Any sincere writer can attain a sound online reputation.

Thrill Readers with a Voice Plus Good Grammar

Remember to write frequently about various topics, and welcome the chance to infuse energy into boring subjects. Spell correctly and use good grammar.

Finally, recognize an emerging voice and write from the heart, and develop a code of ethics. 

How do you find the right voice for your content creation?

Correct spelling, I agree. I go to many web pages and cannot believe how many spelling mistakes there are. If a customer is shopping, especially on a new site, they want to know that your organization or business is reliable. Seeing misspelled words makes it appear that the company does not place much value on quality. I would not want to buy from a store or use a service who has that reputation. Even if you have a great business, all the people know about you at first is what you have written on your site. There is no need… Read more »

Stephan,

Thanks for your excellent comment! It is always a bit disappointing when a business displays spelling errors on websites. Incorrectly spelled words in blog posts and articles make online businesses look less than competent. Additionally, content authors who use their writing voices to write relevant articles help business owners gain new clients.

I read an article not too long ago that informed writers about the importance of correct spelling. That very article had several misspelled words

Thanks for the tip on writing about boring subjects. That seems like an excellent idea (and one I wish I’d thought of myself). Effective exercises are always useful and this one seems like an excellent one for expanding repertoire and really testing out a writers skills.
Do you have any suggestions for ghost writing? A personal voice seems great for certain things, but what about getting into someone else’s voice?

Great advice, i believe any writer is always trying to improve what they are writing about. Going out of one’s comfort zone and writing on topics you have to do research for is a great way to improve your writing skills.

Respect certainly goes both ways. I always respect clients and pay attention to their wishes and their business’ needs. In return, I expect them to respect me as a professional and a writer who knows what she is doing.

It’s amazing how some people genuinely believe they can earn respect without showing any. That’s true not just in business, but in all walks of life.

That’s so true. I see that a lot, and it always makes me shake my head. It’s like they say where I’m from- some people just aren’t raised right.

Writing about something that is “boring” and trying to make it interesting can actually be fun. 🙂
