Why Bloggers Should Study Public Speaking

"I spoke to a group about the impact of 'out loud' communication. I realized that writing needs this as well, but it’s harder to achieve."
 
-Donnell King

I was interested in this article 3 Reasons Writers Should Study Public Speakers.  It explains how you can become a better writer (blogger in our case) if you understand the characteristics of effective public speaking. 

Within "Establishing Context", focusing on fewer points and going deeper really resonated with me.  Then there is "Transferring Emotion" and "Developing Your Own Voice".

Hi Dorie Dillard ,
Speaking on the fly isn't my thing.  I like to be prepared.

Hi Carol

Thanks for the share - sounds like a worthy read. I think we can all get better at our writing, even after doing it for some years. I have gotten better at public speaking and now don't get quite so anxious, but it's not something I do very often.

I remember when I was about 5-6 years old, my dad and uncle took a Dale Carnegie public speaking class. To this day I remember many of the things they told me about from that class.

I have remembered and applied them often in my business.

I had not thought of applying the principals to blogging but see how it would benefit our writing.

Thanks

Bingo. This is great information, Carol.  Our own voice, and a relaxed authentc style is generally a good thing to shoot for in writing. Happy to see the star. D

Hi Carol, thanks for the article, I liked it.  Which article did you like more from these three?  I agree with the commentary "Andrew Mooers" "The content has to be worth while and the delivery must be with the consistent style like a broadcast journalist".  I've been trying to write quality content for a long time, but so far it's not working out for me.  I'm 19. My friend, who works on https://essaytwist.com website, advised me on your article.  Maybe you, Carol, can tell me what books I can read to increase my ability to write?

Interesting!  Esp the transferring emotion.  Need to remember that when describing homes on line and on the flyers!

Hi Jeff,
Public speaking isn't something I really seek out much these days but I don't mind doing it if I am prepared.  Never liked the impromptu speaking thing.

HI Candice A. Donofrio ,
In your case, you may want to "filter" your writing just a little bit.  LOL

Definitely.  Emotion is such a huge part of the buying process.

Great post!  This is required reading for anyone doing public speaking or blogging.  Since I do both I can so relate to transferring emotion when I speak about appraisal values, energy efficient features, and how to empower realtors to want to change their business to help clients.  It's all emotion.  I've learned to create pictures in every power point, with minimal print. They look briefly at a picture, then I tell a story. Works very well and conveys the important facts.  Links are there!   Thanks for sharing :)
