My Next 10 Article Ideas

If you were one of our top February 2009 U.S. expert authors by # of article submissions, watch your postal mailbox this month!

Your article ideas are important and we want to help you capture them. So in the next few days we’ll be sending a couple of notepads like these, plus the highly-coveted Expert Author removable notebook sticker, to our 500 top-submitting authors.

These notepads are perfect for:

  • Capturing your next (10) article ideas
  • Doodling and sketching
  • Writing out your next (10) article ideas
  • Folding into little Origami cranes
  • Jotting down your next (10) article ideas
  • Building stylish EzineArticles paper airplanes
  • Planning for your next (10) articles

Do you get the feeling we’d really like you to use the notepads for your next (10) article ideas? =)

The sticker we’re sending is made of top-quality laminated vinyl with a special adhesive that makes it perfect for sticking to the cover of your notebook computer (that easily comes off at any time in the future without leaving a mess behind). What a great way to tell the world that you’re an EzineArticles Expert Author!

This surprise giveaway is just our way of saying thank you for contributing to our success. We couldn’t do it without you. Keep up the great work!

By the way, if you didn’t qualify for this giveaway, start writing and submitting those articles now! You never know when our next surprise giveaway might happen – it could be sooner than you think!

ps: We’re testing this first mailing on our USA-based members with plans to roll out an International round of pads in Summer once we get feedback from this first round. I know this doesn’t sound fair, but our costs are significantly higher to mail outside the U.S…so we need to test 1st here and will roll out Internationally once we’re able to get feedback.

pps: Next week, we have a treat for all members of all countries that will be released in our newsletter…related to the project mentioned in this blog entry.

This a feel good idea! I immediately wanted to be one of those top 500 luck people.

I’m working on learning more about article writing and what it takes to whip them out fast.

Congrats to all the HARD WORKING author’s who receive these nice gifts from EzineArticles.

Is there a way to tell if you were in top 500 just for a month?

Me too! I hope I am one of the 500. I use my coffee mug every day. I hope I get a matching notepad. :)

Sorry, we don’t currently publish the list in order to prevent our members from being solicited to death by competitor sites.

Looks like 15 article submissions or more in the month of February 2009 and a valid USA-based address is the cut-off for who gets this little gift mailing.

I agree and think having a notepad with you at all times (with a pen of course) is essential as you never know when that next great idea will pop up and if you don’t write it down you will quickly forget it.

Isn’t that the truth Buggerman. How many times have I…

Wow, I made it barely with 16 articles. Its funny how little surprises like these can motivate me more than the real potential writing articles has to offer.

These pads are great, fabulous idea, I have one by my bed and one in my car. One I put in my bag and take to the coffee shop too.

Congrats to all top 500 EzineArticles authors for earning these super suprise notepads and stickers!

I’d love to see the monthly top 500 authors and I’m sure authors would happily ignore all solicitations… ;-)

Finally, I’m very happy that international authors have not been forgotten… ‘so we need to test 1st here and will roll out Internationally once we’re able to get feedback.’

I wonder how many international authors would have been in this first batch, had they been included? I know for sure their feedback would have been off the hook, as I’m sure the American author feedback will be.
