EzineArticles.com, the giant repository for thousands of articles that can be picked up by editors and publishers all over the world, is one of my favorite places for submitting how-to articles.
Now, they’ve added eight new categories for articles:
Data Recovery—Lost data? Got data? This computer related category covers all of the issues relating to data protection and data recovery.
Aviation—About jets, airplanes, NASA, airports, and anything having to do with flying. This category isn’t about traveling to destinations, but rather about the “aviation industry” more so.
Personal Finance—About budgeting, budgets, managing or organizing home finances, and improving your personal financial position.
Depression—Feeling down? This new sub-category covers the range of low-level depression or feelings of sadness to clinical depression, treatments, cures, and the discussion about how to feel better about yourself and your outlook.
Pregnancy-Everything about the pregnancy process, pregnancy and weight loss, health & fitness issues during pregnancy, early detection, and post-pregnancy issues.
GPS-If you’ve got a personal Global Positioning Device or want to know more about them, this is the best place for your GPS articles.
Ethics-Some businesses have them, some don’t. Discussion about business, workplace, government and ethics in management.
Fashion & Style-If it’s hip, GQ, exotic, or high style, then this is the category for your fashion-related articles.
If your niche did not get its own sub-category yet, jump on over to the forums and see the August 2005 new sub-categories on deck for consideration.
If you currently write articles for one of the niches listed above, now is the time to send more articles. I post them all the time. In exchange, I get requests for speaking engagements, more traffic back to my website, more ezine subscribers, and more people who buy my products and consulting services.
If you think you can’t write, or you don’t have time to write, I’ve done some of the work for you. A template on how to write a simple how-to article is yours when you order the CD or electronic transcript titled “How to Write How-to Articles for Newspapers, Magazines & Trade Journals.” It’s actually a how-to article on how to write how-to articles. Just follow the format I’ve used, substitute your own words, and –voila!– an article ready to distribute all over the Internet.
