Ways to improve my writing?

Argentina
April 9, 2011 4:41pm CST
I want to start a beauty blog, but in a different way. Most of the beauty blogs, only talks about beauty products, reviews and more reviews. They won't talk about skin and hair and its problems, or what's inside the products and its ingredients, health, foods to improve health and beauty, lifestyle, that kind of things, and I know a lot about these things. I'm from Argentina, and here, there aren't so many beauty blogs, and the few blogs that exist here, they all talk about products. Also, I could met through Facebook many relevant people from the fashion industry here, and some of them are my friends now. I was giving to them some advices about beauty and they loved my advices. So thinking, and bored to read those sometimes useless beauty blogs, I concluded that I can create my own very creative blog. I told this to some of my friends and they told me that is a fantastic idea, and I also have chances that some magazine calls me to write to them, because recently, a writer from one of the most relevant beauty blogs here (but actually the same as the others, the only difference is that more people read this blog than the others) was hired as beauty editor in Harper's Bazaar Argentina, and my blog will be different and interesting, and my friends are going to help me with this, so I have lots of chances. And here is a job (and very good) possibility! (If you have read one of my previous discussions like "being positive" or "what do you think is the right attitude to be sucessful in life?" I'm the girl that can't find a job to save money for her plans and dreams) The point is that I'm looking for a way to improve my writing, I want to write like a professional writer and increase my chances. I have no spelling mistakes (at least in spanish, because is my native language, of course), but probably I do have some punctuation mistakes, I don't know I just want to improve my writing. There's some kind of program, or site, or game, or book, or something that could help me with grammar? Doesn't matter if is in english or spanish or if is for children, is the same thing. If you know something, please tell me. Thanks a lot! Wish me luck!

I write articles and get paid for writing them. I use Grammarly. It does cost though. But there are several ways to pay for it you can do monthly, or even yearly. Doing a yearly subscription is the cheapest. Check it out for free and see if you like it before actually getting into it. You can do it month to month and cancel whenever you want. I tried it for the first month, and it really did help with sentence structure, spelling, synonms etc. Seriously check them out it has helped my ratings on the site I work for. Good luck and let me know if you get the blog area started. I would love to read on it.

Millefeuille welcome to mylot. You seem to have your command of the English language down pretty good, but your grammar is a little off. Your title is not a question it is a statement. You have several other grammatical errors in this discussion. When English is not your first language, you should always use a grammar and spell checker to help catch errors. I have some free grammar/spell checker tools that will help improve your writing if interested add me as a friend and I will pm them to you later.

There are places online where you can check your writing grammerly and white smoke is some of the places. You get a free trial first before you have to pay for it.
