EzineArticles is Nine Today

Happy Birthday To Us!Yes, that’s right… today is our 9th birthday!

…We’re just a tiny baby site. :-)

Earlier today I gave our members a challenge to share which article writing/marketing accomplishment they were most proud of?

Some came back with:

  • @mariaduron: That MSNBC found and called me from one of the articles I submitted to ezine articles.
  • @TargetStars: I am most proud of being able to help a client outshine the competition (especially small businesses). I love a challenge!
  • @buildingsource: The fact that I had the confidence to get started.
  • @annkeelerevans: I’m doing it, learning how to do it better and learning from doing it! We make ourselves experts as we share our expertise.
  • @jeffherring: Leading a tribe of article marketers to get their message out to the world and make a difference…

QUESTION: What are *YOU* most proud about in terms of all of your article writing and/or article marketing activities?

Happy Birthday E-Zine Articles!

The quality and integrity of your service has empowered like-minded geeks and marketing freaks around the world.

We love that Google and Yahoo! love you. We love that mainstream media seams to be catching on and monitoring you more all the time.

One of the new golden rules of education and business:
When something needs to be said,
say it on E-Zine Articles.

Congratulations, Chris.

You and your team have made it this far the old fashioned way: you’ve earned it.

Here’s wishing you another nine years, at least.

Act on your dream!

Congratulations, Chris!

The internet is a better place, thanks to EzineArticles and the help the service supplies to hundreds of writers, bloggers and newsletter editors.

In 9 years, how much traffic have to driven to small sites that would otherwise be unable to compete against better funded competitors? How much information have you helped to disseminate? How much content have you supplied to small websites and newsletters?

A big thank you and best wishes for future success.

Congratulations Chris, and thanks for the excellent service provided by you and the team.
EzineArticles got me noticed by one of the world’s biggest publishers who offered me a book contract.
Although I’m only a co-author, I’m still really proud because we got to be a bestseller in language learning on amazon.co.uk – all thanks to EzineArticles!

Sharing my challenging journey through self-publishing allows me to feel as though I’m contributing something worthwhile for other authors, published or not. Plus it keeps me writing, which I could easily let the busy stuff stop me from doing so. What a wonderful site to share, learn and keep movin n’ groovin.

Always enjoyed writing, but now have the nerve to take it seriously. Finding that others use my articles for their newsletters and blogs is a great compliment. Recently completed agreements to be a regular columnist for a biz publication and also to write the feature article in a biz associate’s newsletter.

Without you and your guidance, not sure this would be happening.

Thank you!

I appreciate the advice and I wish EzineArticles continued success.

Thanks for being here for writers of every level.

I don’t have a business, but my articles have been reused on blogs and sites not only in the USA, but in India, China, and Australia. that I know of.

Divorce in any language is painful and I appreciate the chance to help others learn from my expertise.

Only because of you, Ezine, am I able to do that. Thanks for giving me a voice.

I’m pleased I have started writing, and keep learning, and now have the courage to stand and be counted for my convictions. That can be a scary thing and puts many people off. So thank you for providing a free platform for me to do this.

Hi Chris!

Happy birthday to EArticles! I wish you and your team prosperity and success!

Now, about your question, a very intelligent one, here is my answer:

I’m proud because I have many students who follow the lessons I give in my articles, feeling that they are really helpful. Their gratitude is a compensation for me.

My articles represent my identity in the internet.

I intend to keep writing articles, many articles, but I don’t think I will be able to participate of the discussions here, because I will be too busy translating dreams, giving lessons and writing a report for my site about schizophrenia and psychosis cure.

I wanted to do that since I built my second site, but I was not able to! Now that I finished with the first part of my work, preventing depression, worse craziness and suicidal tendencies and curing depression and neurosis, which are very simple mental illnesses, I’m going to work on impossible cures. This will be too serious and time consuming.

I will come back when I will have time, of course! But I really have too much to do!

I am most proud about becoming an EzineArticles Expert Author. I really am proud of that and I am proud to tell others about EzineArticles because I believe so much in the site and all the great lessons I have learned from your blogs and emails and trainings about online article writing.

Writing Ezines for EzineArticles has brought me business and I just love to share the site with others.

Signe Nichols,

I remember how excited I was when I became an Expert Author. I jumped up and down for a week! The appreciation I felt was incredible.

Then one day, I was searching for my EzineArticles address for my website and found that I was a Top Author for ‘Shopping and Reviews – Gifts’ and I still get tears in my eyes over that one. I check it out about every other day, just to make sure I am still there. I get soooo excited about it every time I see it!

Personally, my greatest feat has been ‘Top Author’ for EzineArticles! I couldn’t have picked a better place to submit my articles and make friends. Somehow, it always feels so comfortable to be here.

Yes, Thank you, thank you, thank you EzineArticles!

And Happy Birthday again!

First of all, congratulations Ezine….9 years is a good number!

I was an early contributor, and your service was the first article placement service I ever used.

I am happy to say that one of my articles, ‘Love and Work: The Pleasures of Our Lives’, was picked up by an Australian Coach who is going to include my article in an e-book.

Yea team! Thanks for the ongoing role you play in my business development.

To answer the specific question you asked at the beginning of this article- “What are *YOU* most proud about in terms of all of your article writing and/or article marketing activities?”

My answer – the fact that I`m quite new to your program, have written 10 articles, 8 of which have been accepted, 2 are in the review stage. All 8 were accepted with me having to make any changes etc, and that`s something I`m very pleased with.

I have studied and researched several diverse yet related areas of knowledge. Over many years,
I have written many numerous articles, book chapters and presented many seminars and workshops. EzineArticles.com has given me one place, one location, one venue to share my
knowledge, information and expertise with a huge public audience. It feels like a relief to get my thoughts and information out of my file boxes and personal computer – and into the public domain.
