Writing Articles Online to Hone Your Critical Thinking Skills

August 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 301

If you are going to write articles online, you are going to inadvertently increase your critical thinking skills. The reason is simple - because as you are preparing an article you are explaining to the reader how to do something, how something works, or why something is the way it is. You might also be sharing with others your experiences, expertise, or newfound insight. For this to work in an online article you must approach it in a systematic way. The more articles you write using this process, the better your critical thinking skills will get. Okay so let's talk about this shall we?

In many regards, it seems as if it is an added benefit to improve your thinking skills and thinking process in this way. After all, online article writing already has so many benefits - this is just something extra, something that people don't even consider. Nevertheless, in many regards you are preparing an argument, or you are telling of a problem, and then sharing with the reader the solution. You must explain why the solution is the way you project it to be, and convince the reader of that, otherwise they click-out and off of your online article and leave.

As you are writing these articles you are considering what your reader is thinking, where they come from, and what they might have previously thought before they clicked on your article. You have to take them through the process to change their mind, enlighten them, or teach them something new, and in doing this, you have no choice but to use critical thinking skills. The more you use these skills, and this cognitive process, the better you will get it.

Now then, as a case study I assure you after writing thousands of articles online my critical thinking skills have been developed to such a degree that I have noticed an improvement in my decision-making outcomes. That is to say I am making better decisions, because I am using these new thought processes, which have been honed from preparing online articles. Indeed, I believe the same will be experienced by you, especially if you are writing nonfiction articles on the Internet, and posting them as quality content.

In fact, even in this article I think I've made the case, and given you the exact reasons why my premise or theory is correct, even why it might work for you. In that case, you can see how valuable those critical thinking skills will be to whatever it is that you do in the future. I hope you write a ton of articles, and get smarter as you do it. So please consider all this and think on it.
