Can Blogging Improve Your Writing Skills?

Awhile back, I wrote about how I would like to write blogs to improve the way I write. In that blog, I wrote the potential benefits we can get from blogging and how it may affect our style. Apparently, some bloggers do not agree with my idea. Some say that though blogging develops the habit of writing on a regular basis, the writing style is in an informal manner. I have no contentions about that. But, that's if the blogger chooses to be informal most of the time.

As for me, I write formal themes and researches and publish them too. I've encouraged my daughter to do the same. If most of us will practice this, then wouldn't it help us? Of course, the benefits I mentioned cannot apply to all and there are conditions to be met to get those results. However, those are potential and are there for the taking.

I agree with you that blogging can improve one's writing. Of course, if your blog-writing is lazy and very informal, it won't help. I can see both sides of the argument; so many blog writers are way too informal in my opinion. But there is also some very good writing out here in the blogosphere, so the practice is making some of us better. I will enjoy seeing your progress as I can see your potential now.
