OK, so now you can see power of writing articles as a method of generating traffic to your website. How heck do you find other people to publish your work? Thanks to fact that so many publishers out there don't have time or (so they believe) ability to write their own articles, or are looking for articles to supplement their own, you have a ready-made market of thousands of publishers who are always on lookout for quality content to present to their readers. You just have to find them.
Here's a partial list to get you started:

When submitting your articles to above websites, be sensitive to types of articles site is looking for. Some accept articles on any subject under sun, others are looking for articles on specific subjects such as internet marketing, for example.
Over time, you will be able to add to this list. If submitting to individual ezine publishers, don't be surprised or offended if you don't receive a response. Most ezine publishers of any size receive dozens of article submissions a day. Time normally doesn't permit a response to each submission. Also, try and find out from publisher whether they even accept article submissions. Many don't (me, for example). I receive many article submissions a day which just get deleted unread.
The point is, just work up your own list, write articles consistently and submit consistently. Over time, you'll develop your own style of writing and attract a following.
Although it may be slow to start, you'll start getting a trickle of new traffic from people who have come across your article somewhere, some place and were interested enough to click on link in your resource box. Over time, that trickle will become a stream, then a river, and then a flood.
