EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets

  • Expert Authors: “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” – Benjamin Franklin. :)
  • Make a difference! Build your reader’s trust and earn loyalty by writing a quality, informative article for them.
  • Looking for a new writing topic? Look, absorb, and listen. Ideas are everywhere!
  • Are you confusing readers? “They’re putting the chicken before the cart.” Avoid local analogies unless you 100% know them.
  • Brainstorm with a voice recorder! Sometimes talking about something is easier than writing. You may unlock greatness!
  • Help your articles go viral with plain-text formatting! Complex formatting/coding tends to get mixed up when reproduced.
  • 2012 ends in approx. 9 months. Invest in your article’s future by making it timeless by skipping the date in your titles.
  • Time Saving Tip: Delegate! Find, hire, ask a friend nicely – but find someone else to proofread your articles :)
  • Word on the street is you are an awesome Expert Author! Keep it up by submitting your next quality article today.
  • Looking for an instant credibility boost? Be transparent; sign each article with your name and upload an author photo.

Article Writing and Ideas

  • Activate your article with active voice by focusing on the reader. Less “I” and “me”, more “you” and “yours”.
  • Quick Writing Tip: Write everything you NEED to say first; then ADD the necessary transitions and images!
  • Punctuation Tip: Match opening and closing quotation marks; “these” are a matched pair, but ‘these” are not.
  • Don’t be a bore! Attract and engage your reader with a confident, assertive hook in the first 1-3 lines of your article.
  • Punctuation Tip: Quotation marks are flush against the words they enclose; so “this” is correct, but ” this ” is not.

These tips given to the Authors are very good, and very helpful in no small ways. They are narrowing down the hardships most of us or most of us are encountering every now and then.
All one needs at this stage is to bundle these tips together to be used from time to time or when ever the need arises.
Having said that, I will appreciate to have them bundle together in due time as a reference point. Because I fore see easiness and simplification in the writing arena.

Lisa –

I’m glad to hear you like the templates – we think they’re extremely valuable. For that reason, we give them away AND sell them. If you’re looking for just one or two ideas, you can find the templates on our blog. If you’re looking for the whole collection, and PDF’s and/or a deck of cards to go with them, you can purchase them instead.

– Marc
