Why Ezine Articles Make Me Dance

Written by Timothy Ward

I wrote my first ezine article in December 2001. I titled it 'The Power of Online Friendship'. It was five paragraphs long and contained 3 typos. I used it to promote 'The Free Promotion Tips Ezine', an ezine of mine that has long since faded intorepparttar Great Void of Cyberspace. I still think it's one of my most moving articles.

I danced aroundrepparttar 149411 house, riverdance-style, for about 10 minutes when I readrepparttar 149412 email from Chuck Bowden,repparttar 149413 editor of Your Ad Space Ezine, who promised to use my article. That was quite possibly one ofrepparttar 149414 happiest days of my adult life.

I'm aware that most of you have more thrilling lives than me and, therefore, would not find getting an article published online to be a crowning acheivement in your life. I, however, live a life of loneliness and solitude and would thank you not to rub your lives in my face.

I've written many more ezine articles since then and have had most of them used by various ezines and websites. Sometimes when I'm tired of sorting out spam or signing up for free promotional programs just to get 50 free visitors to my site, I like to type my name, followed byrepparttar 149415 word 'articles' into Yahoo or Google. I take a few moments to go throughtrepparttar 149416 results and see where some of my articles have been used.
