2. Iím not a writer - I canít write What special skills do you have that people want to know? If youíve mastered your field or deal with customers, youíve gained specific expertise. You help people make decisions. Answer their concerns. Certain problems come up time and again. And you know how to handle themócan explain them in your sleep. That makes you a natural to write how-to articles. Or checklists. Or tell a success story readers can learn from. In-depth "hereís what to do" articles are always in demand. Donít be afraid of being too specific. Just steer clear of jargon.

Do Not Write Articles for Wrong Reason
Steer clear of these motivations. Too many articles are simply recycled information, served up without much food value. Those arenít worth reading - or writing. No one is fooled when article is a thinly-disguised promo piece that wastes readerís time. Equally bad are keyword packed articles written only for search-engine ratings.
To quote Christopher Knightís ezinearticles.com blog (the 800# gorilla of article sites), "One class lower than SEO Authors, in terms of sophistication, is new breed of what I call: "PR Article Authors". These are PR (Public Relations) drones who think they can just submit a press release as if it were an educational and informative article."
Thereís an etiquette of whatís proper as well as a learning curve. But rewards are worth effort. And youíre building a new mental muscle. Just write a few articles and see what happens. Youíve got nothing to lose but your excuses.
