EzineArticles Asks: What’s Your Favorite Blog Post or Series?

Take a quick look back with us and share your invaluable feedback!

One year ago, I was introduced to the EzineArticles blog community. Since then, my appreciation for our Expert Authors has grown tenfold!

Ranging from newbies to experienced writers and from grammarians to SEO experts, our core readership and commenters are a great group of people who are truly amazing. From this dynamic group of people, I’ve learned the following over the past year:

  • Expect the unexpected because no matter what happens, it’s all about passion.
  • Be direct and reiterate to ensure you’re absolutely clear.
  • Never make assumptions on what people know and don’t know.
  • Logic and specific examples are better than lofty ideas.
  • Comment spam is like keeping a horde of zombies at bay (thank goodness for spam filters!).

Based on insider data, online trends, your questions, and much more, we tailor the blog content to help you improve your article writing efforts, navigate the broad ocean of content marketing, and strengthen your overall platform. Are some topics more interesting than others? Perhaps, but each and every topic is an invaluable tool you can use to your advantage.
