I quickly learned that writing articles and submitting them to online publications was a great way to attract new readers and gain experience as a freelance writer.
I have been fortunate to have several of my articles published on high trafficked websites and have made some wonderful new friends as a result of submitting my articles to these free ezines.
Here’s the resource box I include at the end of my articles:

What you are giving is your permission for the publisher to publish your article in exchange for a byline at the end of the article. The byline is about four lines of text about yourself, including a link to your website.
Whenever I write an article, I first publish it on my own website and then submit it to ezines. Ezines will not take the time to edit your article, so make sure that you proofread it before submitting it. You may want to have someone else go over your article for errors before submission.
Here are some ezines where you can publish your articles.
You may also wish to search through ezinesearch.com for publications that will be interested in the genre of articles that you write.
Websites are constantly looking for free content to re-publish. Many webmasters search article directories such as articledashboard.com in search of content to publish on their websites. The number of ezines online is growing everyday. Im constantly receiving invitations to submit articles to new ezines.
Writing and submitting free articles is a great way to gain exposure and increase your income when people want to hire you to write content for their websites.
It wont be long and you will be recognized as an expert in your field.
