If you are an online article author perhaps someone in your family has asked what you are doing when you spend all that time writing articles? I have recently been telling them that I am writing articles for mass distribution. Then the next obvious question they ask is; How are these articles being distributed?
Well simple I tell them; I submit the articles to an online article submission website and these send them out using RSS or real simple syndication and then websites pick them up for content, sometimes print medium and often Ezines too. What is an Ezine they ask? Simple I tell them it is an online newsletter or electronic magazine, which is usually sent out via email to thousands of email subscribers. Oh; they usually say.
Once my articles are posted in the online article submission site the Ezine Publishers capture it that way. Which puts the article into the pipeline so to speak; so they can EZINE IT! Whenever I explain this people look at me funny and then have that dumb puppy look? I explain the Ezining it, well, one could say would then be an action verb.
Because the act of putting your articles into distribution for Ezine Publishers to pick it up could be called Ezining It! In other words this is what I call the posting of an article for the sole purpose of getting Ezines to distribute it? There is no word for that action, so I simply made one up; Ezining it or Ezine It a verb. Kind of like Faxing It or Zerox it or FedEx it. Generally after I explain this to them, they want to start writing more articles also. Consider this in 2006.
