What is professional writing?
Professional writing is a paid job a person does. Moreover, it may refer to a specific type of communication used in workplace, and people mostly use it to initiate communication relating to business or a specific purpose. Professional writing is done with a typical official tone and it is explicitly different from creative, artistic, or academic approaches. The main quality of professionalism in writing is about maintaining a formal tone in writing for achieving a specific output or purpose. General purposes of professional writing are the following, either any one of the reasons or a mixture of two or three reasons together:

  • To initiate actions from the readers
  • To instruct the audience
  • To influence readers
  • To inform your target audience
  • To assert an assigned goal.



What is professionalism in writing?
In this context if the question is raised “what is professional writing”, the answer will be an extensive list perhaps.  In short, the texts which are done for professional purposes, like business letter, business email, sales letter, white letter, press release, marketing communication, etc. are some common examples of professional writing. If the writing is done in an organized way, keeping complete focus on result/output, it adheres to the rules of professionalism in writing.


The rules of maintaining professionalism in writing
There is no formula for maintaining professionalism in writing because professionals consciously modulate their writing style according to target audience. Still, a few general rules help in maintaining professionalism in written communication. These are:

  • Straight approach of writing with comprehensiveness and clarity (for readers to understand the communication readily)
  • What is written has to be errorless in terms of language, approach, and spelling
  • Writing style should be to-the-point and mostly unbiased
  • Communication should be flawless in terms of authenticity and linguistic accuracy
  • Ability to identify the target audience and talent to create content for motivating the target audience.


These are the general rules of inducing professionalism into your writing style. Besides accuracy and authenticity, readability of a write-up also displays the professional talent of the writer.
Professionalism and technical writing
Technical writings are business writing and these are done with a specific target of communication. Business organizations employ writers to develop content in order to convey precise information to the target audience. Professionalism in technical writings means,

  • Authenticity, clarity, and accuracy
  • Comprehensive writing style that readers will understand and appreciate
  • Subject-centric, concise, and informative expression.

If a writer adopts a professional approach in presenting the topic via his write-up, he will be able to introduce smart professionalism in his writing style. However, it is still vital to know how to write with professional efficiency. Let’s check here.


How to write with professional skill
All professionals are not experts. Similarly, all writers are not professionally proficient. But following a few tips, a writer can add a smart professional pitch in his writing. A few professional writing tips are shared here for ready reference of newbies.



  1. Always maintain authenticity. As a writer, your duty is to convey best information to your reader. Maintaining authenticity of information is one of the obligations of a writer to his readers, which is a part of his professionalism.
  2. Be concise. A professional writer should know how to keep his readers captivated as readers expect peppy, concise, and relevant information from a professional write-up. Also, a consistent flow of language makes writing style crisp, which is a mark of writer’s professional proficiency.
  3. Introduce a format. An expert writer should maintain a format in his writing. There should be an introduction, the main context of writing piece, and a conclusion with a clear call to action on each communication.  The talent of inducing the format along with relevant readability is one of signs of professionalism.
  4. The writing has to be visually appealing. When a write-up becomes visually appealing, it becomes more memory-friendly and attention-grabbing. Adding subheadings, bullets, infographic, etc. will help readers to get the main point. This consequential communication is considered as the display of writer’s professionalism.



These are some aspects of professionalism in writing. In one word, when a written communication serves its optimal purpose of convincing its readers about the intrinsic purpose, it is considered that the writer has induced professionalism in writing.

Best Sites to Submit Your RSS Feed

Ok, so I see you are looking to determine "where" to submit your RSS feed. What you are looking for would be called content curation platforms and blog aggregators. Here are some suggestions:

Image



Content Curation Platforms

1) FrontPageIt - New and upcoming platform. They have a feed algorithm that aggregates multiple chosen feeds AND pushes the unread content to the top. The also push an app to their users. Very clean. Free account. Not sure if this is manual or automated RSS.

2) ScoopIt - Basic account is free. More established platform with manual entry into pushing your content. Automatic feed upload may be part of the premium (monthly subscription) offering. Make sure to go into advanced settings to add your tags.

Blog Aggregators

1) Alltop - You can submit your RSS feed to have it included in their blog directory. When you posted a new article, they pick it up real time. Automated. Free.

2) Blogorama - You can submit your RSS feed to have it included in their blog directory. Little bit more hassle in adding some code on your site to help them verify things. Automated. Free.

For more options, just google content curation platforms and blog aggregators. Zip through the blog postings that have lists, go to each site, assess if the free option is automated or manual and get to work. Then when you post something, go to your manual list, login into each one and push the content. By making it into a system, you can do this in probably a few minutes.

Hope this helps don't forget to drop your comment below.

20 THINGS YOU MUST NOT FORGET TO TAKE TO NYSC ORIENTATION CAMP


Hmm just make sure this things are always with you when going to  serve as Corper



PHOTOCOPIES OF YOUR DOCUMENTS: just make up to 10-12 copies of every document required . There would  be photocopiers in camp at maami market but trust me , it is double the price and it saves time.   Statement of Result (Original and Photocopies) , School ID Card (Original and Photocopies)


COPIES OF PASSPORT PHOTOGRAPHS: This is very important . from experience i would say you make up to 30. Reason being that you would need them at every registration point mostly. Then those of you who would likely redeploy , you  would need more than others . It is always advisable to have extra copies of them too.


CALL UP LETTER: This is a vital part of  camp and the only evidence that you are a corper (otondo) and you are not impersonating anyone. so if at all you even forget you luggage (lol) never forget this. Word of advice —-keep it like its your life, do not laminate it o. i know someone who was sent back because she forgot hers. and also someone who had to beg and beg before his letter was collected because he laminated his own copy.  So please o avoid all these stress and make enough copies of this letter like 15 .


STATIONERY :BIRO  , PAPER , GLUE , TIPPEX AND STAPLER :Yeah this saves time and lots of unnecessary begging. also do not forget to include pins in your stapler.


ROUND-NECKED WHITE T-SHIRTS  : this is an essential outfit in camp in fact in most camps this  is the only allowed cloth to be worn throughout your 3 weeks . Even to church , you might not be allowed to wear colored cloths.  You would be given 2 pairs of white t-shirts at camp to just fulfill all righteousness which surely would never be your size especially our very slim and small otondo in size . So you can bring extra pairs (3) . Word of advice:  do not carry more than 2 pairs of colored clothes because you wont need it .


WHITE SHORTS: i beg you please do bring yours , you would also be given 2 pairs of shorts which are really poor in material . they tear easily and are thick . it can be annoying. so my dear otondos bring like 4 pairs of shorts .  Trust me also you wont like to wash everyday ,so bring enough to last you like 3 days so that you wont be stranded.


PLAIN WHITE SNEAKERS/TENNIS SHOES: This is a very important outfit. you would also be given a pair of low quality tennis shoes customized for nysc. Its either you are not given your size . After the first wash it starts tearing . So just buy yours. They also sell this in camp , so in case you are not able to get  you could buy in camp just carry extra cash for that because the price would be higher cos they know you have no choice than to buy.



WHITE SOCKS: Just get extra pairs . you would also be given 2 pairs.
 A PAIR OF SLIPPERS
DETTOL : This is very very essential . firstly the bathrooms can be very annoying and dirty  and you would not like to have infection from camp. Bad idea. Also the water can be dirty.Most people always have reaction to it.


MOSQUITO NET:  you would do not want to fall sick in camp from malaria. Just bring yours. Also bring  ropes you would use to tie it o.  i also used mine as a room to protect my box and properties from thieves and also from some insects and ants.
OTHERS: Towel , bed sheets Pillow Cases and A Pillow . you could also get pillow from mammy market.
NOVEL :For those who get bored easily , please carry some . And for guys psp or chess.  also iPod and mp3.
CASH: extremely important. you would need between 15000 – 20000 for the extravagant spenders and for those that can manage say 10000-15000. There are lots of things  that take up money . Things like food(for those who don’t intend eating camp food) , recharge cards, charging of phones , pleasures e.t.c
NOTE—- you wont be allowed to leave camp o. So do not be stranded , trust me not a good idea.Just budget 1000 per day . You could carry your ATM incase.
ALMIGHTY WAIST POUCH/BAG:Very very essential . This served as my bank and locker for important items. Things like phones, money , id card , keys , ATM cards e.
