Writing Blogs: Passive Voice

When you want to write clearly & concisely and make your sentence subject clear from the start, an explanation of ‘Passive Voice’ is useful.

I get my Yoast WordPress plugin to teach me so that I can largely eliminate passive voice.
To put that sentence in a more active way I should write:

“To eliminate passive voice, I get my Yoast WordPress plugin to teach & prompt me.”

Recognising the subject & object of your sentences is not always easy when writing for homeopathy.  I focus on the most important element of my message to find the subject.  So, the subject of my sentence above was ‘eliminating passive voice’.  Once I have given the reader that information, they are equipped to absorb the advice I’m giving subsequently … that Yoast WordPress plugin helps teach me.
