Thinking in Articles

Written by Dina Giolitto


I have a confession to make.

I think in "articles."

As a freelance copywriter working with a shoestring budget, I use articles to promote my writing expertise onrepparttar web. And it really works! But I must tell you, it's taking over my brain.

I started doing this about seven months ago, and overrepparttar 145874 past couple of months I noticed some "article chatter" happening in my head.

Now, instead of "I think I'll write Cathy an email about my new Betta fish, Harry Peesalot," it's "Maybe I'll write an article about Betta fish and post it onrepparttar 145875 web!"

The article starts flowing from my brain before I can even get torepparttar 145876 keyboard.

Whatrepparttar 145877 heck is going on here? Was I brainwashed by some weird article-writing cult? Possibly, but I think it's a blessing, and I believe it can only mean wonderful things for my business.
