Everyone can write, but we cannot all be good at it. I started writing when I was in elementary. I was more on the "artistic" side then. My articles were posted in our school paper. I'd write up my own stories and poems. It went on until high school. I learned the technical stuff when I took up a Journalism subject in College. I aced my grammar tests, easy peasy. I had my articles posted in the school paper, sure. I was a good writer... or so I thought. Then, I experienced the real world... and search engine optimization. My background was a great pass to get in, but there were sooooo many things I needed to absorb... quickly. While we can learn the technical stuff, let's accept the fact: not all of us were born to do it. It isn't about the age either. My dad learned how to use Facebook at 58. My mom "independently" created her Instagram account at 56 (she asked me loads of questions in the process, but she did it on her own anyway). Knowing SEO does not make you a good writer, too. I know a few that hires writers because they aren't good at it. Well, other than the fact that writing eats up so much of their time. But that's a different story, I believe it's more on who's actually talented and patient to do it. I'm telling you: writing+SEO takes A LOT of talent and patience. You can learn how to write, yes. It's a long road, but it is possible. But that does not make you a good one. When do you say a writer is good? Can anyone really be a good writer? Share us your comments.
