    Hello James.
    How are you doing today? Hope you’re doing great.

    To stand out from the crowd, you have to find your own voice which is the uniqueness from other writers.

    Focusing on your own style and voice is the best way to succeed in anyone’s writing career.

    Writers adjust or adopt their writing depending on the CAP (context, audience, and purpose).

    I do agree; before submitting, I spend 2 or 3 days learning about the bloggers’ own writing style.

    Nice article, and thanks for sharing…

    Good point about ego. What I love about the internet is the fact that it’s opened more possibilities, enabling people to be more casual, versatile, conversational, and relaxed. It’s perfectly okay to adapt a quirky style even if it’s outside the norm, even if your little college degree isn’t being put to “traditionally” good use (all depending on the blog’s style). So yes, the more we set our ego aside, the more money and opportunities we’ll see later on.

    Hey James, these are some great tips on how to switch up your style as a writer. This can be important in staying and keeping yourself (and your blog) relevant among the thousands of blogs being started everyday. I’ll be sure to check back on this when I feel the time is right to switch up my style. Thanks again for the post, James!

    Hey James,

    I love the tip about understanding the other side. It is very crucial to write a fitting piece – and it is a must if you want to be a professional writer.

    Loved the bacon example for that! So true.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Jane.
