I have been postponing forever to submit my first article to EzineArticles.

I’m pretty sure I will do it after checking out these video tips (I think I was scared of being rejected)

Anyway, thanks in advance guys!

Sergio –

Having articles rejected isn’t unusual. In many ways, it’s part of the learning process. However, one of the easiest ways to achieve article approvals on the very first submission is to review our Editorial Guidelines. These guidelines are the road map we follow when deciding whether or not to publish an article.

Best of luck as you begin your foray into the world of article writing!

I think they’re great the way they are! Also have to say you have a very pleasant voice, which, believe me, helps! What’s that old expression, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”…haha.

Even though I do have a better attention span than 1 minute, the concise nature of these tutorials make them very pleasant to watch. Essentially, everyone has a minute to learn a new tidbit.
