EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Spell check is like a fork – great for pancakes (spelling), but horrible for syrup (grammar). Proofread to catch things spell check can’t.
     
  • Proofreading – does a body good! Proofreading is like sniffing milk before you drink it – you want to make sure it is not sour.
     
  • Linking to a site w/ no content is like inviting guests over for a pool party w/out a pool. Ensure your site is fully functional.
     
  • Any meal must be broken into bite-sized pieces before eating. Help your reader devour your article – use 3-5 sentence paragraphs!
     
  • When you invite a guest into your home, you make sure everything is tidy. Links are like your home – clean ’em up to make it more inviting.
     
  • “Are you sure you want to leave this page” 5x’s shows a lack of confidence. Quality landing pages don’t need them. Change your strategy.
     
  • A powerful and unique title is the key to attract readers. Get them to unlock the door of knowledge with targeted titles.
     
  • Approach your article from the reader’s point-of-view: you’re looking for info on “x” – does your article provide ALL necessary info on “x”?
     
  • Your article is more than just words, it is your voice! ‘Speak’ loud & clear so the knowledge of your niche shines on through.
     
  • Make your words count. Avoid adding filler to meet the min. word count – think quality words, not quantity.

  • Article Writing is like fishing – your title, the hook; article, the line; resource box, the reel. It all works together to land a reader.
     
  • Your articles are a reflection of you as an credible author. Give your readers a mirror image of your best content in each & every article!
     
  • How do you focus when you’ve got a million things on your mind? Try writing when you aren’t multitasking, see how your productivity changes.
     
  • Practice makes perfect… when determination is involved! Be determined; write until you are satisfied with your skills as an author!

This certainly is a wealth of information and a lot to sift through.

Proofreading stood out as one of the most important points.

Nothing will ruin your credibility than an article full of glaring typos and spelling errors.

Don’t just proofread off the monitor, you’ll be surprised how much you missed when you print out and check a hard copy of your work.

This article Tip to Retweet is great.
“Linking to a site w/ no content is like inviting guests over for a pool party w/out a pool. Ensure your site is fully functional.”
Because if you do all the work to drive possible clients there and it’s not a functional site, then you have wasted valuable time and energy! Thank you.

Good list again. A couple are still too long to RT (like the first one) but as usual, I love them and so do my followers.

Actually, most of this batch was too long to RT this time. Too many characters.
