Meet EzineArticles’ Expert Author Lois Dewitt in Today’s Showcase
What do a lighting specialist, an art instructor, a cookbook author, a gardener, a poodle enthusiast, and an author of children’s stories all have in common? Expert Author Lois Dewitt.
Since publishing her first residential lighting article in October 2007, Lois has continued to publish articles in nearly 20 categories. Motivated by a great variety of interests and her passion for art, Lois cultivates a wide range of inspiration from her YouTube subscribers to her art students. She then incorporates their comments, suggestions, criticisms, and more into quality, informative articles.
In turn, Lois gives her platform strength and deepens her connection with her audience by publishing articles on EzineArticles.com, her website, Facebook page, and her blogs. “It all knits together well because my website is about art and my blogs are about cooking, lighting and my Standard poodle Charley,” Lois commented. “And I can refer to my website or blogs at the end of my article.”
Discover what other methods and tools Lois uses to take her efforts to the next level with this quick Q&A:
Q: How did you discover EzineArticles.com?
A: I looked at many article websites and liked EzineArticles the most… I think EzineArticles is the best information source of its kind on the Internet today. I appreciate your reviewing each and every article prior to publishing. This is what keeps the quality of EzineArticles high. Everything is easy to use – especially since the recent changes. Spellcheck is great and best of all, your response is fast!
Q: How do you find time to write?
A: I have to make time to start an article and finish it in a timely fashion. The more articles I write, the more information can be networked. If I write an article on a bi-monthly schedule, then that is the kind of updated coverage that goes to my other resources.
Q: How do you cover the subject clearly and make it information-rich?
A: I tend to get carried away with the subject I’m writing about. Concentrating on my subject and making my subject concentrated helps strengthen my article.
Q: How do you stay objective?
A: I am passionate about my subject matter: art, lighting, animals – namely Standard poodles. I know that readers have small time slots to gather information, just like me. My articles do better addressing that demographic by being short and sweet on the subject!
Q: What advice would you give to new Expert Authors?
A: Schedule your writing and commit to it. Consider your writing an investment that leverages your other Internet interactions like your website, social networking and blogs. Network all of your interactions with your articles.
