I’m sure you've read that good writing means less is more. Well, this concept applies to prepositions as well. Some examples of prepositions are: with, at, in, on, about, around and so on. Prepositions connect ideas, describe the position of something or when it happens. They are usually before nouns or pronouns and explain how the preposition relates to the rest of the sentence.
How do you know when it’s time to hire a content creator or writer? Have you grown your blog to the point where advertising, affiliate links and your own products are are bringing in regular revenue? Do you have a small business that could be bringing in more leads if only you had time to get regular content up on your site?
Have you wondered what one of your blog posts would look like before and after editing? Most bloggers have to self edit and may be able to use tools like Grammarly to help. However, if you are writing a post you’d like to get paid for and are just starting out, it wouldn’t hurt to have your work edited by another writer or editor friend.
Pro Tip: If you do edit your posts on your own, let them rest. If you write a rough draft on Monday, close the computer when you are done. Come back on Tuesday or Wednesday to re-read and then edit it. You’ll be amazed what errors you will catch with fresh eyes.

The reasons not to write seem to be more than the reasons to write. But what if I told you that using a writing prompt can spur you into action.
