Let me start by being real honest. I’ve never been good at writing (not that I’m exceptionally good right now but I can write). While in school, writing an essay was a task that I would dread.

My journey of writing began while I was in college when I started writing a dairy. I simply wanted to express myself, my feelings in words and also record them for the future.

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” – Anaïs Nin

Meanwhile, I also started reading books and the first book that caught my attention and left a mark on me was “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey. I was so impressed with people who by their writings made a difference to our world that I wanted to be one of them.

A Father’s Heartbeat was supposed to be my personal dairy written for my boys to read and find inspiration when they grow up. But it has turned out to be beneficial even for many others as someone would randomly tell me that the post I wrote was meant for them. Well, I’m so glad I started with it.

“Writing means sharing. It’s part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions.” – Paulo Coelho

My posts are just about my thoughts or views and experiences. I seriously don’t think I need to be super talented to do this. I did take a lot of help from articles posted on Copyblogger.com to understand the rules and dynamics for writing for the web. They are great articles that will provide you great insights. I have collated some of the best ones under each category below.

If you are one of those people who always wanted to write but never got started, I want to encourage you to get started. Trust me, if I can write you can write too. All you need is to learn the tricks of the trade and I have already listed them down for you here.
