To my subjective comprehension as a writer, one must write to EXPRESS, not to IMPRESS.
Having said that, make your writing READABLE; not from the standpoint of what it is, but also from the perspective of how it can help the readers learn from it.
Here is my gentle persuasion for you in this context.
Avoid being besotted with ‘Attention seeking” individual. Also, do not get obsessed with ‘Excellence’, though you must try harder to improve the quality of your craft a notch higher. Thinking that you can make your piece of writing attention grabber is not gonna happen unless you make it readable and informative.
As long as you keep on writing good pieces of stuff that could enlighten others positively, you are always miles ahead in the race than others who write down things just to impress others.
I have also come to an understanding (I find this knowledge quite valuable) that if you have a sizeable stock of “interesting and action-provoking” words, your writing will always stand out from the rest. However, it doesn’t mean to boast of how verbose you are with the words.
Textual eloquence (the way you speak your mind through words) without a real substance falls apart to the discretion of readers, especially those like to read something of substantial value than your verbose write-up. Such write ups draw attention from readers, but just for a short while.
One of the most important reasons behind increasing bounce rates of a website is thin content or the content written for the purpose of impressing others. On the contrary, such writing tactic could pronounce a counterproductive means for your forte; say, for example, readers will turn down your manuscript condemning it a bombastic piece of your confabulation.
I have also learned from my experience, that you can’t impress everyone with your writing. This is not because there is something wrong in your creative expression; it might be like the kind of stuff you are sharing is not actually for EVERYONE.
For example, if you are sharing your expertise on CLOUD COMPUTING on Quora, your stuff will draw the attention of the readers genuinely interested in reading such stuff. Your writing will not entice the readers seeking something else, say, for example, information on why La La Land Oscar win is a disastrous turn of event for Hollywood.
It is good to have mastery of grammar and use this knowledge in in your writing, but you should avoid using it to an extent beyond which your writing looks like nothing but a piece of the robotically generated manuscript; tasteless, uninteresting, and boring.
I mean to say using grammar in your sentence promotes admissibility of your allegiance to grammar, but it also affords to make your write-up sound insipid. For the sake of maintaining taste and appeal, try to restrict grammatical involvement in your writing.
Great poets like Wordsworth, Tennyson loved their creative expressions and spoke their mind through words without thinking about grammar.
Common grammatical mistakes like SUBJECT+VERB+AGREEMENT must definitely be followed. Obsession with grammar kind of slows down creative expression or it makes you feel disoriented.
