Save Time and Have Peace of Mind

Keeping track of your latest articles is now easier than ever with the Recent Article Activity section of the new My.EzineArticles.com member interface!

The Recent Article Activity section provides:

  • Easy access to your latest article drafts for editing.
  • A way to watch your recently submitted articles’ progression through editorial review.
  • Shortcuts to your recently published articles to monitor their performance.
  • Alerts to articles that need your attention.

You can easily monitor your recently submitted articles’ review status with the article status bar which features 5 levels:

  1. Pending Initial Review: Your article has been received and it is waiting for initial editorial review.
  2. In Initial Editor Queue: Your article is currently in the Editorial Queue.
  3. Pending Quality Control Review: Your article’s initial review has been completed and is awaiting Quality Control.
  4. In Quality Control Review: Your article is in final review.
  5. Review Complete: Your article has completed its editorial review!

Here are some quick tips about the Recent Article Activity section:

Check out the shortcuts! Each article/draft has a blue arrow (shown right) that slides opens to the following shortcuts or features:

  • Small Bar Graph: View the performance of the selected article (only displayed with published articles).
  • Page with Arrow: View the selected article on EzineArticles.com (only displayed with published articles).
  • Blank Page: View the selected article/draft in the My.EzineArticles.com preview.
  • Page with Pencil: Edit the selected article/draft.
  • Trash Can: Delete the selected article/draft.

Additional notes on Recent Article Activity features:
– This icon represents both published and unpublished articles/drafts.
– This icon represents a Problem article alert. If you article has completed editorial review and has been assigned into Problem status (i.e. did not meet EzineArticles Editorial Guidelines) it will therefore need your attention.

Quick Note: The Recent Article Activity section will only show one author at a time. So if you have alternate authors on your account, select their name from the “Switch to:” list under the Author Name dropdown menu (click on the listed name in the upper-right corner of the screen to access the menu).

Getting to the Recent Article Activity section is easy:

  1. Go to My.EzineArticles.com
  2. If you have not accessed My.EzineArticles.com, you can do so by using your current username and password.
  3. Voila – The Recent Article Activity section will appear right on your My.EzineArticles.com Home tab!

Discover My.EzineArticles.com and get access to tons of new tools, resources, and information. Stay tuned for the next quick and easy tool to save you time and amplify your article writing efforts!

I’m glad you’re introducing this. I remember the first time I submitted an article to EzineArticles… waiting was excruciating… But I was elated when it was approved.

With these new tools, for first time article writers, you’ll still have the joy of an article get on accepted, without the uncertainty.

Question: what did you use to create the GIF animation? (I like it)

Internet Marketing Tools –

Thanks for the comment. The GIF animation was produced by our in-house graphic artist using Adobe Photoshop.

Being able to check the status of the submitted article is great, instead of anxiously waiting for the approval email. I find the old interface is better if I want to check my recently submitted articles under different authors, at a glance. The new interface only show articles under one author’s name.

Karen –

Thanks for the feedback. The My.EzineArticles.com interface is still very much a work in progress, so your suggestions are always welcome. As a matter of fact, you can offer them anytime by simply clicking on the “Feedback” tab in the bottom right-hand corner of the interface.

Hello! I’m just getting started here with ezine article writing. I am meticulously careful about my use of the English language, spelling and creativity. As the lady before me wrote, I thank EzineArticles for the extra attention on my comments as this is always a learning process.

Granted that I have done a good enough bit of writing and public speaking I am always cautious and careful about what I dish out to the public. This has been the activity of my life all my adult days, teaching in both the religious as well as secular fields. I am now 73.

No article writing website serves it’s users like EzineArticles.com does. Thumbs Up Team :)

I don’t know if it’s just by chance that the “captcha” I see usually refers to writing improvement. Like the current one, “proper punctuation” :D

Ahmed –

It’s not by chance that each CAPTCHA phrase has something to do with article writing and marketing. We spent some time generating a high number of phrases that were specific to what we do here. We felt it was more appropriate for our site. :-)
