This may seem a bit odd, as I’ve not submitted any articles for review. I registered recently but have not submitted because my website isn’t complete yet. Still, I’m compelled to send this eNote because I’m so excited about the Author Alert Signup Box. This new feature will be a boon to any author’s credibility. I believe it will enhance a reader’s perception of an author’s “Expert Status.” It seems to me the commitment of EzineArticles to its authors just went viral … Again! Many thanks (in advance of my article submissions). Shalom!
