Article Writing Simplified – Write 10 Articles a Day with Ease

Republish Article Writing Simplified – Write 10 Articles a Day with Ease
Author: Sandy Moore

If you are new to article writing you might find it a chore to write lots of articles per week.

By following the tips I give you in this article, overcoming your article writing
challenge should be a breeze. It won't be long before writing becomes routine and you will be writing ten or more articles a day.

To some of us writing comes naturally but for others it can sometimes be a difficult
task. For successful article marketing you need to adopt a strategy and learn some
tricks for your content to flow naturally.

The best way to illustrate this is with an example.
Every time you have an idea for an article you need to jot it down in an ideas journal.

You then pick one idea from your journal and use it for the core of your article. Your best results will be achieved by writing your article in a list format. Perhaps it could be a list of how to information. Write down each tip step by step, and then expand on each tip with about 3 or 4 sentences about each one. This will act as a skeleton for the ten articles you are going to write and you can even use this outline for an article on its own.

After you have made your list take each point in your list and turn each point into an individual article. Add an introduction and a summary at the end to add up to about an extra 150 words. If you are having trouble finding the words you can always use an example if it is appropriate to the article or a story that explains what you are trying to say to your reader. Use stories from your own personal experience, as stories also make good articles.

So, now you have an article about the first tip on your list. All you do now is rinse and repeat for your second tip until you are at the end of your list. I never run out of ideas for writing articles because I always jot down every idea that comes to mind in my ideas journal.

Another way to resource article ideas I've been doing this for a while now and you can also use this method. When you are waiting for a doctor's appointment for example most people have a flick through a magazine.... right? There is an endless supply of article ideas you can find in magazines and then adapt them to suite your niche. What I usually do is just put them into the notes section of my phone and put them into my ideas journal when I am at my laptop next. This way you will never run out of ideas.

Now that I've given you my secret to article writing, you should give it a try. You
will be amazed by the results. You will start getting unique visitors to your website in droves just by using this step by step method.

Gulf oil spill is public health risk, environmental scientists warn


May 28, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/may/28/bp-gulf-oil-spill-pollution
Prolonged exposure to crude oil and chemical dispersants is a public health danger, environmental scientists warned [on May 27]. With no immediate end in sight, there were growing concerns over the effects on public health of a prolonged exposure to the oil as well as to the more than 3,640,000 litres (800,000 gallons) of chemical dispersants sprayed on the slick. Environmentalists and fishing groups in Louisiana say prolonged exposure to the oil, in the form of tiny airborne particles as well as dispersants, could be wreaking devastating damage on public health. They also accuse BP of threatening to sack workers who try to turn up for clean-up duty wearing protective respirators, and the Obama administration of refusing to release results of air and water quality tests that would show the impact of crude oil and dispersants on the environment. Wilma Subra, a chemist who has served as a consultant to the Environmental Protection Agency, said "Every time the wind blows from the south-east to the shore, people are being made sick. It causes severe headaches, nausea, respiratory problems, burning eyes and sore throats." Long-term health effects include neurological disorders and cancer. Subra said there was even greater concern for those recruited to lay booms and skim crude off the water, since they were in closer proximity to the oil and the chemical dispersants. Clint Guidry, of the Louisiana Shrimp Association, has accused BP of threatening to sack workers who turn up wearing respirators.

* copyright law in general
* the aspects of copyright law that most affect libraries
* how librarians in the future could most effectively participate in the processes by which copyright law is interpreted and shaped."

Rice University | News & Media: "Nano-based RFID tag, you're it
Rice, Korean collaboration produces printable tag that could replace bar codes

Long lines at store checkouts could be history if a new technology created in part at Rice University comes to pass.

Rice researchers, in collaboration with a team led by Gyou-jin Cho at Sunchon National University in Korea, have come up with an inexpensive, printable transmitter that can be invisibly embedded in packaging. It would allow a customer to walk a cart full of groceries or other goods past a scanner on the way to the car; the scanner would read all items in the cart at once, total them up and charge the customer's account while adjusting the store's inventory."

Could electronics be what's causing runaway cars? - USATODAY.com

Could electronics be what's causing runaway cars? - USATODAY.com: "Allegations of unintended acceleration by Toyota models that are not part of the recall and by cars from other automakers have revived debate over whether electromagnetic interference is the cause of such incidents.

The theory is that electrical signals — from sources as diverse as cellphones, airport radar and even a car's own systems — briefly and unpredictably wreak havoc with sensitive electronic controls in vehicles. It's an argument trial lawyers and consumer advocates have made for years."

FCC survey shows need to teach broadband basics - USATODAY.com: "The survey found that 35% of Americans do not use broadband at home, including 22% of adults who do not use the Internet at all. Of that 35%, 36% say it is too expensive, while 19% do not see the Internet as relevant to their lives. Another 22% lack what the FCC calls 'digital literacy' skills. They fall into a category that includes people who are not comfortable with computers or who are scared of 'bad things' on the Internet.

Among people who do not use broadband, 65% say there is too much pornography and offensive material on the Internet, 57% say it is too easy for personal information to be stolen online and 46% say the Internet is too dangerous for children."
