Whatever you write, you need to make your writings easy to be consumed. Your readers will find it easy to read your articles if you put your personal tone into it, and they will be tired of reading dry articles that have no a human touch in it.
Many expert writers will recommend you to let you own voice appear in your articles, but no one of them will teach you how to exactly do that. This article is going to fill this gap in the best possible way.
How to put a personal tone in your writings
You should use personal pronouns like I/we/you as much as possible in order to write in a friendly and personal tone.
What I mean is that instead of saying “Cold weather makes people feel bored”, you should arrange it into “You do feel bored when it makes cold, don’t you?”.
As you see, the second sentence is more conversational and personal just because you use a personal pronoun like “you” to express your idea.
This style will make your articles easier to understand and more interesting. Let me give you some other examples of personal sentences to clarify your thoughts even more.
Examples of friendly and personal writing style
Instead of saying: “X Blog has reached 10.000 loyal readers now and is helping thousands of others to have a better time”.
You should say: “You are one of other 10.000 readers who check this blog out every day to have a better time. So thank you for visiting us and for your feedback”.
Instead of saying: “Smoking for a long time is responsible for many dangerous illnesses, but quitting it reduces that danger by 10 folds”.
You should say: “You will get sick if you smoke for a long time regularly. So quit it and you will reduce the danger by ten folds”.
Final words: If you are not working for a scientific work where you have to be concise in the maximum, you have to be social and personal, because this way you will write in an interesting and understandable way. Formal tone instead is very dry to be handled.
Of course you don’t need to make every sentence you write personal. You should balance your style to write conversationally and professionally too. There are lots of other techniques you can implement in your writing to make it more engaging, this was just one idea. And you can learn more about this here: Inspiration to write.
