Being a Tech Blogger, I have recently experienced this, while I started writing on a bit different vertical!
Got my point? Still not, right? Actually, when a Tech Blogger tries to expand his/ her horizon then it may happen. What?
What may happen & what actually I have experienced? Ok ok, don’t get hyper, I am coming to the real point.
Recently, I have started experimenting on a bit different kind of writing. Because at a certain point of time, we all should do a bit experiment with our writing in a different genre.
Why? Because I know you are a tech blogger but, you have a life too & above all you are a blogger/ writer, technology is your specialised area just.
But to establish yourself as a blogger/ writer/ a craftsman, who can play with words in all environment, you have to take new challenges & have to come out from your known shelter / comfort zone.
That’s what I have experienced a few days back, when I started writing on a different genre. Because Technology is my forte, so when the vertical changed, it took some time to get habituated with the new genre & in that genre how I should proceed.
So start experimenting with your writing style beside your core area. So, when the time will come, it will become much easier to adjust with.
It will take your expertise to the next level. But you may ask, I am a tech blogger, right? So why I have to care about all the things?
Listen, calm down. Before being a Tech Blogger you are a blogger. So as a blogger you have lot’s of other responsibilities too. Like?
Like, as you write/ blog, so you have a certain reader base. So if you tell something, they will listen.
So look around, there are so much turbulence in our society. So many burning issues. As a writer it’s your responsibility to make people (means your readers/ followers) aware about those.
As they follow your writing, so they will listen to you & if it seems powerful then they will spread the word among their known circle. In this way an entire social movement can happen.
As a writer or blogger you can’t deny your responsibilities or more clearly speaking the social responsibilities by saying that, o oh writing about these kind of critical subjects are not my forte.
If you look around, then you will find that every person has some sort of social responsibilities in whichever field they are. So you can’t just deny this, because as a writer / blogger your responsibilities are bigger.
Because pen is mightier than sword. So, your written words can bring the real change.
But, as you are writing or always written about technology, so you may face a bit difficulties when you have to write on a totally different subject matter.
Because in technology writing, the place for showing your emotions, intellect & word power through your writing is not too much.
But when you are writing on any social issue, you have to take care of lots of stuffs like emotional balance, literary prowess, a unputdownable flow, varied angle, and a definite style.
Although all these qualities are necessary for writing on any vertical, but for these kind of scenarios (Social, Economical & Political) the above mentioned qualities are required most.
So, although you are a tech blogger but don’t get stuck in it. Do lots of experiments with your writing. Ultimately better writing will help you in technology writing too.
So, what do you think? Do you have the same experience or something different?
