4-Pack of EzineArticles Quick Tips

Answering Some of Your Common Questions

Today, we bring you a set of four quick videos to help answer some of the common questions we hear from Expert Authors.

The video studio at EzineArticles has been a busy place recently. We’ve been working on a variety of projects, like the Article Content vs. Real Life series, the 2 Minute Approval Tips series and a ton of other informative videos and tutorials.

To get you caught up, we thought we’d share four videos today. Each video is a quick response to some of the frequently asked questions we receive on a regular basis. For your reference, we’ve also included a brief printed summary below each video.

Plus, you’ll get to briefly meet some of the folks behind the scenes here at EzineArticles. Enjoy!

Video #1: Proper Capitalization Rules

  • Follow the standard rule in the English language where the first word in every sentence is capitalized.
  • Apply to your entire article, including your author name, article summary, article body and Resource Box.
  • In the title, capitalize every major word – words like “a” or “the” don’t need to be capitalized.
  • Keep capitalized branding intact like Blu-ray and eBay, as well as proper nouns like Japan and Halloween.

Video #2: How to Upload an Author Photo

  1. Log into your EzineArticles account.
  2. Click on the Profile Manager tab and then go down to Edit Author Photo.
  3. Choose which author you’d like to add an image for.
  4. Select the Browse button and find the image you’d like to use from your files.

Things to Remember

Your Author Photo:

  • Must Be an Image or Drawing of You
  • Must Be in JPEG Format and Under 100k
  • Symbols and Logos Aren’t Allowed

To increase the effectiveness of your author photo, we recommend you use a photo of yourself while “in action” inside your niche.

Watching videos is so much better than just reading the tips – but you should have had the people introduce themselves as I’m now left wondering what that guy or girl does at EzineArticles. :)
