You must agree with the adage that "reading is the best way of learning", I also strongly agree. But there are more effective ways to learn is writing, and I think it is very logical and believable. It is an opinion based on my personal experience, and also based on what I observed from the categories created on the pages on the internet, be it in the form of archives, blogs and others.
From my own experience, that every write something I would definitely read a reference that could be my previous writing, guide books , archives on the internet, e -books, research, journals, news or other. In addition, if it is a practical writing (e.g. writing an article "how-to" ), then of course I will try first, or based on the experience we have done repeatedly. Even in finding an inspiration posts happen after we read something.
Now I would argue, any points in each write an article I had to read a reference or read something else.
QuoteIf I put a quote from one person's opinion, the results of research, guide books or both trustworthy sources of news and press releases, of course I have to ensure the correctness of my neighbor's posts by re-reading the quote to avoid mistakes. Because the error bit of a quote can certainly be a big problem for us.
ResultsIf my writing is in the form of a research result, I have searched and read as many articles with a semblance of a research me, so writing about the results of my research is truly unique and not plagiarism.
Posts about Conclusion or SummaryIn writing a conclusion or summary from many sources, both from cracked - source obtained from myself or others, I had to read the first of these sources carefully, so that it can be produced conclusion or summary that is effective and appropriate.
Three of the above is a very important thing for me every write an article, so I have to read in advance or at the time I review the results of my writing. Perhaps these readers have another opinion; we can discuss so hopefully we can make the experience richer and certainly makes us richer knowledge.
From the above explanation of my opinion, I conclude that the three things above almost any writing will be used. So I believe that it is true that writing is one of the best ways to learn, because the writing we should be forced to read.
