Attention “English as a Second Language Bloggers” – Here’s how to Write Great Articles

As a blogger who English is not my native language, I struggled with writing English article. I didn’t know how write an opening paragraph to hold readers’ breath and motivate them to read on my content. I didn’t even know how to write an excellent headlines before. I sometimes found it’s really hard for me to express myself and write a good content that didn’t just earn me reputation but also earned me backlinks and money as well. I really had troubles with writing a month ago.

If you are a serious blogger and want to write great content, you will remember how your last feeling of struggling hours and hours try to edit an article. You will remember how frustrated it is to edit and find grammatical errors in your post. You will remember how you have confused about using English words, whether you have explained everything clearly so your readers won’t ask themselves what do you really mean.

That’s what I have been experienced, exactly one month ago.

But, I can tell you right now, I feel that my writing skill is improving. Much better than when I started off.

I don’t feel so hard to write English articles now. Instead, now I am able to tell some jokes, write in correct grammars and spelling. On the top of that, I have really learned how to write  for readers while still optimized my content for SEO.

And don’t worry, I don’t keep the secret for myself. I will tell you just about now on how to write great English content.

Introducing the Copywriting Scorecard for Bloggers – Score your posts out of 100

I received an email from Darren Rowse about a month ago. In that email, he introduced his newest e-book “The Copywriting scorecard for Bloggers“. I know Darren Rowse and I purchased his e-book “31 days to build a better blog” before, so I really know the quality of his work is. He mentioned that with this e-book, he listed all of the mistakes and errors about writing that the blogger could make and he gave me the nice checklist so that I could evaluate my content against those points to make sure that the content is high quality.

This is the real photo that I took from his e-book. I printed them out to use as I write my articles.

I will type the table of content here so that you will easily imagine what value, what benefits this e-book will bring to you and how it can help you to achieve more success in blogging

    • lol thanks Tinh!

  4. Yes Mike, English is a crazy language and more difficult for non-speaking people. I’ve read an ebook from Daren and amazed how he can put the startling things so nicely. Love his writing style and the usefulness he provides. Thanks for sharing the info.

    • lol, you received this e-book for free? Could you show me how lol :)

  6. Hi Mike,

    We have the same last name! :) I love the way you have effectively tie your story into the product that helped you. I have to admit I was sold and the scorecard while it has been out for awhile, I didn’t make an effort to look at it until today. Thanks for making it clear with what’s inside.

    As a natural English speaker, English is my first language and Vietnamese second. However, I love learning about new writing techniques. Your post today was excellent. Keep up the great work!

    • It’s great that you have English as your first language because I can see it’s a biggest advantage to a blogger until now :) I just wish I spoke more like American and had American accent because I really want to do some video stuff, but I guess I still have a long way to go :)

  7. Mike,

    Great article, your English skills seem pretty darn good to me. I have nothing but respect for people who are able to blog in a non-native language. Having grown up an English speaker I still have issues finding just the right word or phrase sometimes. I know there is no way I could ever do that in another language.

    Great job and nice article. Much respect.
