I’m Grateful for … Article Template

Give thanks for this extremely simple, yet useful and thought-provoking, article template.

We could all be a little more grateful, couldn’t we? What better way to express our gratitude than to write an article about it?

What are you grateful for in your niche? Are you grateful for new technology that makes your work easier? Are you grateful for a selection of books or other products that help you get the job done? Are you grateful for a variety of motivational or inspirational quotations or ideas that help you get going each day?

This article template helps you identify what you’re grateful for, so that you can give your readers the same benefits you’ve received. If you’re helping your reader get out of debt, you can show them 5 or 10 debt-reducing tools for which you are grateful. If you are writing about something more enjoyable – like cooking – you can show your readers which gadgets you’re thankful to have in your kitchen.

How to Structure Your Grateful Article:

  1. Introduction – In your introduction, tell your reader what you are grateful for and why.
  2. Create a list of things you are grateful for (be specific) and explain how each item works and why it’s so crucial.
  3. Conclude by summarizing why you picked your choices and encouraging your readers to contribute to your list.

By using this amazingly simplistic template, you should be able to write tons of articles on the things you are grateful for. Once you start thinking about what you’re thankful for, it practically writes itself!

Just remember that it doesn’t all have to be about “stuff” – Make these articles reflect a lot of the different ideas and thoughts you have about your niche.

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this template – it might be simple, but it’s pretty powerful. Take it for a test drive … er, write … and then come back here and leave a comment to tell us what you think. You’ll be thankful that you did. ;)

Hi Chris,

Nice posts–yours and #5, too. :) (I’ll bet the others were also great.) Wouldn’t it be good if lots of people took up this attitude of gratitude and shared what they were grateful for? Too often, we forget how blessed and fortunate we are. Articles like this would help us remember. Nice template idea. Thanks!

I am grateful fot this new slant on my writing fro my articles.
I have noticed when I write about this sort of subject line my articles get accepted whereas when I try and write marketing articles they invariably come back with some from of spelling and grammar problem…
Is the ether trying to tell me something?
I guess by my liking this angle on writing more – yes!!
Thank you for all you do – and yes I am grateful for the fact you read our articles too, makes me progress all the while :)
