Yes, I am diligently avoiding doing more of the serialised articles from Writing E-Books for Fun and Profit. Well...actually, I've decided to just use one day each week for serialised articles.
Why? Did I hear someone ask why?
I was really hoping someone would ask that. Thank you.
Articles are a great way of putting content out into the world and getting people to notice you. On the other hand, I'm don't think serialised articles are particularly good content for a blog. That's what newsletters and ezines are for.
My compromise is to put articles on the blog just once a week. That way, you get to see the articles, but my lovely little blog here doens't get boring. You can always see any of my articles by visiting http://www.ezinearticles.com/?expert=Conrad_Hall.
You can even subscribe to an e-mail alert system that lets you know when I've published a new article.
Are you getting the idea of how important writing articles is to your online presence?
Especially when you put them to work for you with www.EzineArticles.com. You can join for free, it's free to submit articles, and they have a very high level of respect in the online community.
For example, you have to start by submitting 10 articles. Those 10 articles get checked over and published. Once you have 10 published articles, your account is reviewed for platinum status. Platinum status is free, and it means you can submit an unlimited articles.
EzineArticles.com even has a free service that let's you tweet your articles. Yes, every time you publish an article, EzineArticles.com will tweet all your followers about the new article.
I used my serialised articles for the e-book to jump start my account. By the time I had 9 articles live, my profile had been viewed 49 times, my articles had been read 336 times, and one of them had been published.
That's in less than two weeks.
Plus - and here's the big plus for me, personally - I'm submitting articles for my clients. Just think about that for a minute.
A client hires me to write an article, or to edit their work. They get to publish it in their own newsletter and on their site. Then I take it and post it on EzineArticles.com.
Here's the cool part: They get the byline, but the article is submitted through my account. That means everyone who see the articles knows I either wrote it or edited it, and the person with the byline is my client.
You can see how that's a portfolio and an endorsement wrapped up in one spot.
So start writing some articles.
