Learn how to write articles

Anyone doing any kind of internet marketing should write articles. But first a few tips.

Before Al Gore invented most internet or publising writers would use a typewriter to publish articles or books. They would feverishly type the subject matter and clank away. If they needed to start over or didn't like the page they would simply turn the roller and zip out the paper, crunch it up and shoot the wad of paper into the nearby trash can.

Now days you just turn the computer on and use your favorite editor and type away. If the article page isn't to your liking you can hit the delete key or re-edit over and over until it is just right. Man I love technology don't you?

There is no excuse not to write. Always write about your passion your knowledge and what you want to convey to your visitors, customers, friends and colleagues. Always write naturally and above all be yourself.

Be yourself when writing

You do not have to be a Rhodes scholar to write articles now days. You only need basic english, grammar, spelling and punctuation. Did you know most Internet readers read at the 8th grade level....yea this is an amazing statistic. If you don't believe me google "reading level of the average american audiende.

The most important part about writing is the same as public speaking. Be yourself...just write as if you were speaking to me directly. Try to add some humor in your writing and don't just write crap. Write what your website or blog is about be passionate and above all have fun writing.

Practice writing.

Writing articles can sometimes be a bit intimidating. All kinds of questions can creep up in your mind. What if nobody likes them? It's embarassing if someone reads my writing?

Here are a few tips that have helped my writing.

Write your article then leave for a couple of hours. Come back and re-read again. You will probably find mistakes or make corrections. Use a spell-checker or search for spell checkers to help you with your spelling.

Do your best to develop your own style...don't try to be "Ernest Hemingway". Don't be afraid about what others might say. The more you practice writing the better you'll get. The subject matter should always be what you are passionate about.

Delete any unnecessary or contradictory information.

Eliminate anything that is just taking up space. Don't fill your work with fluff. If you need to do more research, go ahead and research further.

Take some courses at your community college in both non-fiction and fiction writing. Not only will teachers and professors help you, but they can also make contacts in the business by getting to know your fellow writers. This will really help your overall writing ability.

Rememer to write what you are feeling directly through your senses. Are you feeling good about yourself, are you depressed, whatever you are feeling just write it and then the rest will flow naturally.

It is best if you write something everyday, the more you write about your subject matter the better your writing skills will improve.
