I have been writing on ezine for a while, though only 7 live articles…well these tips are really helpful.. but for several reasons my articles have been placed in ‘problem articles’. I had read your tips and guidelines before submitting my articles. I dont know if i missed anything or what, but I keep getting stuck in the ‘problem zone’. I suggest you guys should come up with one article exclusively for helping writers avoid getting stuck in the ‘problem area’.
Thanks
