EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets

  • Writing is SO much easier when you stop saying “I can’t.” Sit down, jot down everything you need to include, and write.
     
  • Don’t force it! Only use keywords naturally to avoid looking spammy, to please the reader, and to uphold your credibility.
     
  • Style Tip: Be consistent throughout your articles, e.g. structure, spacing, hyphens (“red-tailed” & “red tailed”), etc.
     
  • When you have finished your first draft, carefully revise it, edit it, & then revise it again to ensure topnotch quality.
     
  • Write with authority by writing what you know – your keen insight and contributions are of great value to readers.
     
  • No matter how much you know, there is always more to discover. Share your discoveries in a quality, original article.
     
  • Beef up your links w/ juicy content so your hungry readers can sink their teeth into the quality information you provide!
     
  • Broken links are like cars with broken engines: You can’t drive traffic with a broken engine. Check your links!
     
  • Readers need signs! Use specific details as signposts in your articles to direct the reader to your valuable contribution.
     
  • Become a part of your reader’s routine by publishing quality, original articles consistently over time.

Article Writing and Ideas

  • Grammar Humor: One day my teacher looked at me and said, “Name two pronouns.” “Who? Me?” I replied.
     
  • Turn off your messages, turn off the television, and hang a sign: “Expert Author at Work!” You’ve got some writing to do.
     
  • Out of article ideas? Don’t panic! Look around you. Ideas are everywhere.
     
  • What are you waiting for? A source of inspiration to strike? Write now to exercise your mind & develop new ideas!
     
  • One exclamation point will suffice. “I love you!” has just as much emphasis as “I love you!!!!”
     
  • Grammar Humor: Reread your articles & you will find upon rereading a lot repetition can be avoided by rereading & editing.
     
  • Article Idea: Just read something? Set your stopwatch & begin writing everything you can remember about it. Impressions?
     
  • Target your article length to 400-700 words. Long articles are perceived as a big commitment that may drive readers away.
     
  • Always proofread! Readers may not comment when something is done well, but rest-assured, they will squeal at any error.
     
  • Describe when you prescribe. When prescribing a method to readers, remember to describe in clear, descriptive language.

Good point here. I strive to make all of my articles at least 500 words long. Perception is reality.

I find myself steering away from reading articles which are more than about 500 words long unless it has content I cannot be without for some reason. So I can also imagine driving away readers if my own articles become too long.

I also agree 400-500 words is an ideal range. I try to keep my blogs within that range. People have short attention spans while reading on the computer.
