How to Keep Improving Your English via Writing English Blogs?

We'll discuss this topic in several aspects.  

Why blogs?

As Blog has become a fad in modern life, it has become a prevailing phenomenon to write blogs ranging from celebrities to ordinary people. Meanwhile, English is an important tool in the 21st century. As a result, English Blog,a combination of blog and  English-learning comes forth and brings benefits for those Chinese who are eager to learn English well.
There are many advantages of writing English blogs.
To start with, blog is a public place where English-learning is extended from class to daily life. Therefore, people can spend their time on English learning according to their schedule and wish, and acquire more opportunities to learn and use English.

Second, blog is an interactional tool via which people are able to communicate with each other, encourage their friends, learn from others, and exchange information with others. It's quite convenient and effective.

Third, bloggers will have a feeling of being recognized if their space is visited by others. They can be motivated to keep writing. Furthermore, owing to the interaction, they will find friends with the same interests. Thus their interest of learning English is further aroused.

In all, writing English blogs to improve one's English has become a trend.

How to use DioEnglish?

After I registered in DioEnglish for a while, I found it is a nice place for Englsih lovers. This website has some distinct characteristics:

Blog parts: writing daily, weekly or monthly English blogs, frequently updating miniblogs, and uploading photoes.

Group activities:you can create an interest group, to name some,“ Finding English Partners”, “Favourite Movies”,“Favourite Sports” , and so on, and then post a thread, like “Love or Money, which is more important?”,“What are you most proud of?.After this, you will find a flood of replies from other registers and you can discuss your confused questions with them; you can also share your recommended website with your friends; In addition, there are some English radios in this web so that you can train your ears and get the lattest news from all over the world; what’s more, some online games are available for you to have fun with your friends.

DioWiki learning:The most attrative part in DioEnglish for me is DioWiki. It’s an English Wikipedia, which includes all kinds of information about English learning. For people who like to optimize the vocabulary entries, they can make full use of it, to enrich their words, to broad their horizon and to digest good articles.

As blog is a public place, your work will be seen and be replied.Others can make friends with your.They can encourage you, comfort you, make suggestions for you,discuss hot topics with you and exchange opinions with you.

What to write?

It is researched that people have a resolution to learn and write, but have no idea about what to write.Most people write about daily occurrences several times a month; some write whenever they feel like to. A large number of people prefer to share interesting or useful English learning materials.

It's quite normal that when you sit in front of a computer, and then your brain just goes blank: having nothing to say, to write. Today just like other days,nothing interesting has happened. However, we should find topics to write.The most common topics are events that happen in our daily life.We can write about persons in our life, put forward a discussion, announce your decision or plan, recall your memory, and pour out your emotion and love story. 
From the messages from DioEnglish users, some suggested to write Chinese domestic news, science essays, lyrics, poems and something you’re really interested in:love,business,campus,friends,education,daily life,moods and so on.
I suggest that while we write our daily life, we may pay more attention to current affairs in order to improve our English level. Starting from your interest, you can choose a topic from politics, business, culture, education, and sport to medicine, science, and fashion. Reading newspaper or listening to the radio to find the freshest information and get your inspiration. For some hot topic, you can write your opinion and invite your friends to join your discussion, like a silent debate. Then we will have a lot to say on our English blog.

For people who are interested in different hobbies and goals, they can form different groups to talk with each other,  to encourage each other and to urge each other to keep writing. For students, they have the best environment and    their teacher can be the perfect person to guide them to write. Teachers can give them a topic each week or organize some competitions for their students online.  

How to improve?

In order to improve the quality of your writing, I have three suggestions:

1. To read more:including classic novels, essays and other people’s English blog, to make contrast, to learn their merits and correct both their and your faults.

2. To make more friends online. They can help you and communicate with you about your writing, give you some good ideas. The more friends you make, the more comments you will receive from others and the greater you will improve your writing.

3. To keep learning:to learn foreign culture, to enlarge your vocabulary, to foster your English thinking, and to accumulate good sentences and expressions.

For all the people who want to keep improving English via English blog, my experience is leaving your footprints on others’ homepage frequently and comment on others’ writings as much as possible.While learning from others, you will find that most people will step back on your homepage and read your article, so that you won't feel depressed when few people comment on your works. Different people will leave different words to you; you can pick up those good for you and make progress. In a nutshell, you are both a receicer and contributor for this website.

I’m sure you will get satisfaction after your “work” for DioEnglish.
I hope all the English learners who want to learn English well can keep writing, and make improvement every day!

如何通过英语博客持续提高英语水平

为什么选择博客?

随着博客成为现代生活中的一种时尚,从名人到平民百姓,拥有一个自己的博客已经成为一种极为普遍流行的现象。与此同时,英语早已成为21世纪一样必不可少的交流工具。因此,英语博客—博客与英语学习的结合产物诞生了,这为渴望学好英语的中国国民带来了福音。
写英语博客的好处多多:
第一, 博客具有开放性,将英语学习由课内延伸到了课外。因此,人们能够更自由的支配学习英语的时间,有更多的机会与英语亲密接触。
第二, 博客的交互性,使得人们可以有效便捷地自由交谈,互相鼓励,互相学习以及交换资源信息。
第三, 博客的团队性。通过访问他人的博客,每个人都得到一种认同感,从而激励用户坚持用英语写日志。不仅如此,用户会逐渐找到一些志趣相同的朋友,一起学习,一起进步。
总之,写英语博客已经一个学习英语的必然趋势。

如何使用DioEnglish英语博客?

我在DioEnglish注册了有一段时间了,通过亲身体验,我发现这里的确是一个英语爱好者的好地方。这个网站有许多与众不同的优点:
不必说大家都知道的英语日志部分,上传照片板块,你还可以写迷你博客,这是一种更随意的日记,你可以随时记录下自己想说的一两句话;你可以创建一个兴趣小组,例如“寻找英语学习搭档小组”,“最喜欢的电影小组”,“最喜欢的体育项目小组”,等等,你可以在组内发起话题,比如“爱情与金钱,哪个更重要?”,“你最值得骄傲的是什么?”,等等,之后,你会发现许多用户会参与到你的讨论当中来,你可以与他们大谈特谈自己的困惑;除此之外,该网站还有在线的英语广播,你可以收听到来自世界各地最新的广播节目;不仅如此,网站还有一些好玩的在线游戏,供好友们一起娱乐。最与众不同的部分要数英语百科了。这是一个英语爱好者的维基百科,包揽了所有种类的英语学习资料。对于那些想给自己充电的朋友来说,他们可以好好利用这里的资源,丰富单词量,开阔视野,吸收好的文章。

写什么?

在我的调查研究过程种,我发现许多人抱着想学好英语的志向开通了英语博客,然而,写了几天或者几周之后,就放弃了。原因多种多样,有些太忙而没空更新,有些不知写些什么,大多数用户记录的是每天发生的事情,有点像我们平时随笔写的日记,他们能够坚持写下去。有些每天一篇,更多的人只是在有的可说的时候写英语日志。有很大一部分人在做“转帖”的工作,将自己在其他网站看到的好的内容转发在自己的英语博客里面,这类用户渴望被关注,他们也有决心想学好英语,但是却不知道写什么,怎么去写,以此,他们只能靠复制-粘贴来更新自己的英语博客了。
有些由于自己的作品无人问津而沮丧失望。通过调查问卷,用户表示,他们需要更多的知识储备,更多的练习机会,他们打心底想要坚持写下去。
客观来说,大多数人都不可能每天都有的可说,事实上每天的生活都充满精彩也是不可能的。然而,我们必须找到一些话题来引导用户们写英语博客。除了最常见的话题—日常生活中发生的事情外加自己的一些评注以外,我们还可以写自己生活中重要的人,可以提出一个话题供大家讨论,可以发表你的决心和计划让他人监督,可以写一些回忆性的文章,还可以将你的心情、你的爱情故事写给大家。
由于博客是一个公开的场所,每个人的作品都呈现在我们面前可供人们评论,当人们看到你的文章,并与你产生共鸣的时候,他们会与你成为网络上的挚友,他们能够鼓励你,安慰你,给你提意见建议,与你讨论热点问题,交换观点等等。
通过DioEnglish的消息功能,我还给一定量的用户发了站内信息做了调查。根据他们回复发现,用户建议可以写一些国内外发生的重大事件以及个人评论,科普类文章,歌词,诗歌,个人真正感兴趣的东西,经济问题,校园生活,情感,朋友,教育,日常生活,心情等等,其他人的回复显示人他们仍然对该写些什么感到苦恼,需要灵感与他人的指点。
我的个人建议是,除了写些日常生活以外,我们应该多关注时事,以此来提高英语水平。从你的兴趣出发,你可以从政治,经济,文化,教育,体育,医药,科学,时尚等等从中选出自己喜欢的方面来写。不论选择了哪方面,关键都在于要多读报,多听广播,从而可以获取更多最新的信息,获得灵感。对于一些热点问题,你可以写下自己的观点,和网络上的朋友们一起讨论,这就像一个无声的辩论,一定很有意思。这样一来,我们在英语博客中就不愁没话说了。

如何提高写作水平?

为了提高写作的质量,我有三点建议。

第一,多读,包括经典著作,时文,以及他人的英语日志,从而学习他人的有点,发现他人的错误避免自己再犯。

第二,多在网络上交朋友。这些朋友都是对英语充满热情的人,他们可以帮助你,与你交流有关英语写作的经验,给你一些新的想法。你的网站内朋友越多,回复你英语日志的人也会越多,你从他人那里学到的也会越多,从而你的英语写作水平会飞速提高。

第三,不断学习。学习外国文化,扩大词汇量,培养英语思维,积累好的表达,这些都是非常重要的。
根据对DioEnglish上100位用户的调查,我得到了一个关于用户写日志更新频率的表格:
尽管能够坚持每天写日志的用户占了很大一部分,但这其中包括转发他人帖子的日志,刚开博客不久新鲜劲还没散去的新用户,以及的的确确一直坚持,每天在写日志的老用户。有些人,在博客刚开通不久的一段时间内能够坐到经常更新,但随着时间推移,他们更新的频率越来越慢 其结果是这一部分人的更新频率平均值比较低。对于不同兴趣爱好的朋友来说,他们可以形成不同的小组,讨论自己的所好。对于学生,他们拥有最好的学习环境—学校,而老师是他们最好的英语学习导师。老师可以每周给学生一个话题 可以组织学生在网站上进行一些比赛。对于所有想通过英语博客提高自己英语水平的人来说,我的经验是,多多去踩别人的空间主页,多浏览他人发表的文章并留下自己的评论,在学习了他人的长处的同时,你会发现,大多数你访问过的人都会来回访你的页面,读你写的文章。如此一来,你的人气提高了,给你的写作提意见的人也多了起来,你必定会在这个过程中得到提高。

总之,在DioEnglish上,你既是受益者,也是贡献者。我相信,你会在这里得到成就感与满足感。
最后,希望所有英语学习者都能够坚持英语写作,天天进步!
