How To Write An Article

By now everyone should know that one of the best ways to get back links to your websites is by writing and distributing articles. It has been well documented over the past year or so that an article submitted to a selection of article sites can result in multiple back links many of which will have an excellent page rank. A quick look at the stats for one of my sites showed that an article submitted 9 months ago has resulted in a number of links from sites with a PR of 5 and above and at least 1 link from a PR7 page. But what if you feel you canít write articles?

When most people want articles and they donít feel confident enough to write them they usually resort to hiring a freelance writer. Freelance writers can charge up to $10 per article so if you require 10 or more articles this can become prohibitively expensive. The answer is to overcome your lack of confidence and actually start writing your own articles, itís easier than you think.

The first thing to remember when you are starting to write articles is to stick to subjects you know about and are comfortable talking about. I know people who say they canít think about what to write but can then talk for 15 minutes non-stop about some hobby or pastime. If you can talk about it you can write about it!. The biggest obstacle you have to overcome is looking at a blank page and thinking that youíll never fill it. The first thing to keep in mind is that you donít need to fill it an article should be between 250 and 500 words, at this point this article is about 280 words long, so it would be long enough to be submitted to an article site.

The second obstacle to overcome is that people donít believe that they can write a full article. To overcome this particular obstacle donít look at it as an article but consider it as a series of related paragraphs. Plan your article by writing down the themes for 4 or 5 paragraphs then write each paragraph as an individual item. Finally put all the paragraphs together and you will have your article.

One final tip is that when you have finished your article go back it read it out loud, this will give you a really good idea if it will be easy to read and that you havenít made any mistakes that havenít been picked up by your spell checker.

Now that you have written your first article and submitted it to a number of article directories use the same process to write more. Each one you write will become easier and will be written quicker. After you have written around 10 articles go back and look at the earlier ones you wrote your writing style will have improved so go back and rewrite them and submit them to another selection of articles sites.
