HomeUncategorizedThe Basic Premises for Writing a Good Ezine

My first ezines were required to highlight a domain in 1997. It followed my degree in archaeology, anthropology, and linguistics and was prior to writing a book in 2,000. The Spirit of the Universe commissioned me in 1983 to do a job and inform the world of what it wants known. Three visions followed the commission that showed me as a teacher on a mountain and my face on a browser, such as that of a computer.

Teaching me about it followed over the intervening years. Then the Internet came about. In 1992 it sent me to university to confirm the visions that were part of the information required. It was there that using a computer was essential.

Without the extended education from both sources the story would never have come together. By the time my first domain went online the information was like an overdue birth whereby the foetus had grown to such an extent that my body could not hold it. Writing it out helped. All that knowledge needed to be told.

My domain screamed out for support, however, and email marketing was shown as a way to get the message out. Writing about the Spirit was easy and week after week the information given to me was flooding into people’s addresses. As time went on and more web sites were added my attention turned to articles for information spread.

Writing them has proven to be a blessing as people tune into what the Spirit wants them to know. The mountain is the Internet and it gave me a position of a teacher on it. Talking with the commission in mind there are important things to know about publishing in this manner.

1. Write so the audience knows what you are talking about. That sounds obvious but many fail to take into account that the reader has no former knowledge of your experience.

2. Write in a manner that they can understand. Don’t use big words and unfamiliar phrases. Most people have a reading capacity of a 12-14-year-old making that the target to achieve.

3. Don’t talk about yourself unless its relevant to your story. This is off-putting and you may not get the article past the editors.

4. Don’t waffle. Beating around the bush is tiring and readers turn off very quickly.

5. Put the main points in the first paragraph and expand on them as you write on.

6. You have about six seconds to make your pitch to the audience so make sure the heading is catchy and pertinent.

7. Read other people’s articles for input and as a test of your own.

8. Proof read everything and eliminate unnecessary words, even paragraphs, if they can be excluded.

9. Make sure you use a spell-check and correct any errors.

10. Avoid the use of qualifiers, such as ‘always’, ‘great’, and so on. Most are unnecessary and will lead to bad writing habits.

11. Use one word instead of several where possible.

12. Keep the article short but interesting enough so a reader finishes it.

When it is done publish immediately because things change and news becomes unworthy if it is held back. If one follows these tips then article writing will become easier with practice.
