2. I’m not a writer - I can’t write What special skills do you have that people want to know? If you’ve mastered your field or deal with customers, you’ve gained specific expertise. You help people make decisions. Answer their concerns. Certain problems come up time and again. And you know how to handle them—can 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 "here’s what to do" articles are always in demand.
