Don't talk about yourself too much
In my early post, i talk about myself a lot. Then, i read from magazine, that actually if you wanna make better writing or make your writing more interesting, you should not talk about yourself too much. Because it's kinda lame and have nothing for the reader, unless we are a celebrity or another well-known people. That's very very make sense for me. Yet, sometimes you should tell your reader about yourself. Maybe you can slip your experience which is related to your post.
Read read read-a-lot!
Through reading you will learn million things. You should read great book and the lame one. And now, you're wondering why you should read the lame one.
