The editing process is essential to good writing. But many busy nonprofits skip editing altogether. They’re usually pressed for time to get an email sent or a blog published.
Why it’s important to edit
✤ You want to produce writing void of typos, grammatical faux pas, and punctuation errors.
✤ The editing process makes you a better communicator.
✤ When others find blatant errors in your communications, they may miss the main point of your message.
Writing for impact is both a skill and an art. If we nonprofit communicators want to persuade others, we can’t just “wing it” because we are running short on time. Our writing can’t be something we just throw together in record time, hoping people will take action.
Writing is the primary tool nonprofits use to prompt people to make a donation. But how do we best make an impact on those we seek to influence?
I have a question about your blog: Are you bored with it? Do you keep posting the same type of content? If you think your blog is a real snoozefest, chances are your readers thinks so, too. You just might need a fresh writing topic idea to pump new life into your blog.
Blog post writing doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. If the idea of writing an article for your organization makes you want to run and hide under your desk, I’ve got some good news for you.
Is the thought of writing a blog post for your organization daunting? You know you have a lot of information to share with your community, but a lack of time and confidence may prevent you or your team from jumping in.
