Getting Picked Up

Author Question: Could you make some recommendations as to the types of article that get picked up most by publishers?

Publisher Answer: 400-750 word articles that do not self-promote in the article body, give original content preferably in a form that is easy to digest (lists, bullet points, and short/punchy explanations), and end with 2 or less URL’s in the resource box.

You’re either writing to amuse yourself or you’re writing to amuse your reader. One way will give you an ego boost and the other way will put your article into mass viral distribution. :-)

I liked your comment: “One will give you an ego boost the other will send your article into viral distribution orbit”

Indeed. However an author who is interested in ego or other needs such as respect from thy fellow man, may find that following your instructions can give them both. Either or scenarios seem too shallow. Why choose, you can have both if you think about it and create a strategy to position yourself to make for a win/win. Afterall this is what EzineArticles is all about, every one wins, YOU SEE !!!

Lance, come to think of it, is it possible to add value to others through a leisure flight in the viral ditribution orbit, and not bask in the fame which oils the ego?

It is almost automatic that if we add value to others by good articles, that value would go round the orbit and come back to boost our ego.

When we nourish our audience, they would surely return to cherish us. Whatever we dispise cannot spice our lives. If we dispise the ethics of writing a good article for our audience, we should not expect a harvest of honour.
