The Law of Start
When it comes to writing articles, the following statment is quite true:
"You do not have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great."
Don't wait because you are not Hemingway material. Just start where you are.
The Law of You
I say this every day to my article writing mentees - You can do this. I know this because I did it, and if I can do it, you can do it. I'm the guy who never finished his dissertation for my Ph.D. because I was sure I could not write. Yet here I am in a situation where writing is part of all that I do professionally and I teach others to write as well.
The Law of Not You
At the same time, article writing is not about you. Article writing is about the reader. Write for the benefit of the reader, and to lead them through your article.
The Law of Expertise
An article is simply your expertise in print or on the computer. When you write articles, you are seen as the expert.
The Law of "Articles are Articles"
I've had those I mentor say to me "But I don't write about relationships and pareting like you do."
So what? Write about what you know. Articles are articles are articles, no matter your area of expertise. Write and market your articles well and you will get results.
The Law of Traffic
If you follow the simple formulas that EzineArticles. com teaches and the formula and techniques I teach, you cannot help but increase the traffice back to your website.
In fact, at this point in the adventure, I could not stop the traffic coming to my web sites as a direct result of articles if I wanted to. And I don't.
The Law of Taste
Write and post several articles. Get a taste for it. I bet once you get a taste for it, you will be on your way.
