Dish, Sully. “How Blogging Makes You A Better Writer.” The Dish. N.p., 18 Sept. 2013. Web. 23 Mar. 2014. <http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2013/09/18/blogging-makes-you-a-better-writer/&gt;.

My new thesis is directed toward the fact that blogging can help writers becoming better at writing. This article focuses on what a blog forces a writer to do and how that in turn sharpens the skills needed in order to be a successful writer. For example, a blog requires you to get to the point, as opposed to a school essay that requires you to write 5-12 pages. When writing a 5-12 page essay, a school assignment that is meant to encourage better writing, some students get a bad habit of beating around the bush and filling in the page requirements with non-essential information that creates bad habits. Blogs on the other hand benefits students by taking the task to the other spectrum. Blogs require people’s ideas to be portrayed in a concise manner, which promotes critical thinking that weasels out the unnecessary information on their point.
