Do you write articles?

Here in Western New York, we are having "winter break" from school. For me, this means all 3 of my boys are home. Yes, we have been able to do some activities together like skating and playing hockey, but unfortunately this last part of the week has been really cold.

I also find this a harder time to work as they always want something as soon as I sit down to do something or the phone rings. So I have been doing some research online trying to find good, quality ways to promote my site and blogs.

After jumping into the blogging world, I have now decided to try my hand at writing articles. While I find it a daunting task, I also feel that I do have something to offer. While many moms know what it is like to work from home with kids, many don't. And the ones of us who do also like to share strategies that work for us. I know I can always use fresh ideas for working around them, especially as they get older and their needs change.

If you have written an article before, please comment and let me know how it went for you. Did you enjoy it? Did you submit it? Would you do it again?

Thank you for your input and have a great and blessed day!

I've been writing articles for years and truly it has been my most successful method for promoting my business online. The most current issue of my Bishop's Business Journal ezine actually covers this topic. You can view it at http://darlenebishop.com/current.shtml if you're interested. :o)

I have not written any published articles other than for a few local newspapers, and have just recently started a blog because I am interested in writing a craft book for grandmothers and their grandkids.....so I think the blog is a good start and articles are the next step for you...there has been so much success with personal stories, etc on blogs I bet you will find the same interest in your articles....give it a go!!!
