EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets

  • Writing a good title is like window shopping: If the reader sees something enticing or irresistible, they will stop by!
  • A broad topic is like a scattered shower during a drought. Narrow your focus & drench your audience with a satisfying rain!
  • Value yourself & your efforts by valuing your time! Plan ahead: Outline ideas to get the most out of a writing power hour.
  • Write what you know! Visitors want to read articles by trusted Experts, not someone who “somewhat” knows the material.
  • Zap the clutter & electrify your writing environment. Fill your workspace with positive energy & let the sparks fly!
  • I Spy a great article! Make your article easy to spot w/ great grammar, unique content, and a relevant link!
  • You expect great service wherever you go. Ensure your article performs the ultimate service by focusing on the reader.
  • A website should be like a well-built home – easy to navigate and welcoming. Make readers feel like valued guests to keep them coming back.
  • When writing on trending topics, ensure you angle the topic to be evergreen by not insinuating “recent” language.
  • Your directives determine how much you know! Provide insight with quality, not lack of sight with “go online” advice.

Spelling and Grammar Tips

  • “Than” is used ONLY for comparisons. “I’d rather eat ice cream than mud.” “Then” suggests you will eat the mud AFTER the ice cream.
  • Grammar Tip: Use “that” when the info must be included to make the sentence true. Use “which” if it can be removed and still be true.
  • Spelling errors are like bruises on a ripe piece of fruit. Do a thorough scan of your article & eliminate the bad apples.
  • Run on sentences can be a nightmare for your readers! General rule of thumb: if you wouldn’t speak it, don’t write it.
  • INcoNSistEnCIes in your articles are difficult to read, e.g. t-shirt, t shirt or tee shirt. Choose one & be CONSISTENT!
