10 Ways to Make People Fall in Love with Your Article

You’ll Want to Bookmark This Post!

We’re going to skip the cliches about love, romance, and other sundries.

You want to know how to make people fall in love with your articles.

Let me be frank with you: it’s not a walk in the park. It takes being honest with yourself and practice, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worthwhile!

These 10 steps will help you connect with readers, build your exposure, and you’ll have a lot more fun with your writing in the process.

Let’s get started.

1. Calling all thrill-seeking titles!

A good title is the difference between stating “I have a story to tell you” and “you’re not going to believe what just happened to me.” The latter always trumps the former – always. People want to be surprised and even possibly shocked. They want to feel included, like you’re sharing some private secret or giving them information that’s exclusively for them.

10-Step Spring Cleaning Checklist for Expert Authors

Spring Is in the Air!

Ready to bust out your mop bucket, brandish your feather duster, and rotate your wardrobe from winter to summer?

Hold on! We’ve got something so much better:

It’s time to spring clean your writing routine!

Use this checklist to give yourself relief from clutter and overwhelming disorganization. It’ll help you be more productive in your article writing and content marketing efforts!

  1. Tackle your workspace, including clutter on your desk and on your computer’s desktop. Keep only what you need at arm’s length and on your desktop. Lose the piles of paper stacked at your elbows and the dozens of folders and icons on your computer. Toss/delete items that no longer hold relevance, create a home for in-progress items that you’ll need immediate access to, and stow away other items that you’ll need for reference in its proper home.
     
  2. Create zones in your workspace! No one wants to scramble to pay their bills and search for that last genius idea because it’s lost to the abyss. If you work out of your home office, then have a zone specifically for writing materials to isolate it from your “paying bills” and “storage” zones.

St. Paddy’s (Not Patty’s) Day Grammar Fun

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Around the world, Saint Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated, whether by feasts, parades, great displays of the color green, and much more merriment.

However, there’s one screaming error that prevails year after year …

It’s “Paddy” not “Patty!”

Whenever I see “Happy St. Patty’s Day,” I imagine that the day is March 18th (the day AFTER Saint Paddy’s) and I picture a diner waitress named Patty. Why would this proud waitress have a day named after her? For all of those hungover St. Paddy’s Day celebrators who are so wrecked that they, in awe of this merciful waitress named Patty, say “please” when she asks, “more coffee?”

On the website Paddy Not Patty, Marcus Campbell explains the source of the double “d” in “Paddy” comes from the “Pádraig,” which is an Irish male name deriving from the Latin “Patricius” or the English “Patrick.” Alternately, Campbell continues, “Patty” comes from “Patricia” or is a diminutive form of the “hamburger patty.”

Why not have the best of all of these words? Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day on March 17th, Patty’s Day on March 18th (don’t forget to thank your waiters and waitresses!), and then wait a few months for May 28th to roll around when you can celebrate National Hamburger Day.

7 Keys to Repair a Severed Connection with Your Audience

Your Opportunity Is Now

Maintaining reader engagement is hard.

There are dozens of minuscule details that can make or break your audience’s distraction-prone, hair-trigger attention span. Make it and you’ll have gained a reader. Break it and you’ll lose a reader.

If you ended up making a bad impression due to a down website, a stray typo in your article, or even a negative review, then it’s important to remember: it isn’t the end of the world.

It’s an opportunity.

You may lose a battle here and there, but your commitment to get back up when you fall and improve your strategy will help you achieve a successful outcome.

Take the opportunity now to get back on track.

7 Keys to Repair Your Connection With Your Readers

1. Is That the Time?! You Ran Out of Time, Again

You’re busy. They (your audience) get it. Frankly, your audience doesn’t care whether you balanced a bowl of soup on your head while riding a unicycle, made tea, and wrote your article at the same time. They do care, however, that you took the time to carefully craft that article for them because once they’ve read it, your article will make an impact, big or small, on their personal or professional life.

10 Things You Need to Give Up Before You Can Succeed as an Expert Author

It’s Time to Let Go

Does it seem like there’s a wall between you and your ability to succeed? Are you sure it’s not you?

When it comes to success, we can be our own worst enemy.

Today, I want you to read this list and truly consider, “am I doing this to myself?”

For each point that you are, I want you to write down the last three words of each point that applies to you:
“Let _____ go.”

Post each phrase in a location where you will (consciously and unconsciously) see it as a daily reminder. Rewrite it every time you start feeling procrastination creep in or those negative thoughts niggle at the back of your brain. Look at your note and say it out loud – use it as a mantra to reframe your thinking and begin working positively on your writing goals.

You can do this. Ready? Of course you are! Let’s begin.
