    I am looking to start writing articles but I have a problem writing articles I know nothing about. Is there a secret to writing articles with little or no knowledge about a topic? It's just frustrating.

    Visit articles directories such as EzineArticles, eHow, Articlebase, etc. That will give you a good amount of info.

    No article writer have huge knowledge about the given topic. What you need to do is search for that topic in google read and understand the topic, take some points and write it on your own. After written check for grammatical and sentence errors.

    Just go to ezine articles and go to one article, pull out 2 key points that stand out after you browse the article... About 15 seconds..

    Go to next article, pull out 2 more things 15 seconds

    Go to ezine articles, look at titles, come up with a title 30 seconds to 1 minute..

    Write an intro
    Talk about key point 1
    Talk about key point 2
    Talk about key point 3
    Talk about key point 4
    Write a conclusion

    Takes about 15 mins or less each one.. without knowing a damn thing about anything....

    Thanks for the advice. I know once I figure out a plan I can come up with unique articles more easily. I am one to suffer from writer's block often. Haven't even come up with content for my sites yet.

    Libraries and used bookstores can also be great sources of content. I like old magazines. Take an article or two, rewrite it in your own words and you are good to go.

    After you have written your first 100 articles things will get easier. Same thing happened to me at first i was struggling writing an article for a full hour. Now i can crank out a 500w in 20 minutes.

    For research I use the sites above. Ezine and Ehow, read a couple of articles about the topic then create your own stuff.

    There isn't any writers block. you paraphrase and expand on your key points that you ripped from someone else.

    DO NOT THINK. Just type, don't stop to think, just type.

    Hi,

    There are also hundreds of PLR articles that you can download and rewrite them in case you don't want to start from scratch

    Seriously, go to ezine articles and just skim an article. See what INTERESTS you in there. Probably like 2 sentences like:

    Article 1 I found this:

    The concept of jet skis came up in 1973 when the Kawasaki Motor Company used it to name a personal watercraft. In the early 1960s a company by the name of Bombardier made a similar model.

    Some of the best waters to indulge in this sport are Arizona, Queenstown, and all the major beaches of Thailand. This sport provides hours of fun and the thrill of speed, although it is not without its dangers.

    Article 2 I found this:

    First of all, jet skis are made to go fast in water. It is also a type of watercraft that is considered to be the world's most battered marine vehicle. Although the design and the mechanics are made to endure abuse and high speed, you still have to keep it properly maintained in order for it to give you more excitement for a very long time.

    Article 3 I found:

    The sun can also do incredible damage to your brand new jet ski, and if you are one of the crazy people who leave your jet ski exposed to the elements all year long then you absolutely HAVE to get a cover for your jet ski to make sure that the sun will not cause your colors and brightness to fade over time.


    So, put them in order and paraphrase, put some filler in and make up some stuff with an intro and outtro and your done..

    Give it a title:

    Jet skiis, The Good The Bad, The FUN! When you get good, it should take you about 11-13 minutes to do an article, if not faster.

    lol

    Take your tabbed browser and bookmark 4 tabs to a "scrape" folder. The sites you should bookmark are ezinearticles (or your preferred directory), google news (good for press releases and quotes), yahoo answers, and you tube. You can also throw in Amazon if you want a 5th or substitute source (which gives you access to 'look inside' samples of some books).

    Whenever you want to write an article, just go to that bookmarks folder and hit "open in tabs." Put the same keyword in each site's search bar, and you will get all the source content you will ever need for any article. On those occasions where info is scarce, use a general search engine to find a blog or MNS someone put up to get material. Then just summarize, or manually rewrite, or 'pad' (take a sentence from another article, and expand it into a paragraph). Writer's block is eliminated by use of these sites in this fashion.

    These are very good advice. Any thoughts on article generator or those automated content creators out there?

    ^^^ It depnds on what the content is being used for. Spinners are great for blasting out fairly readable content for building backlinks etc, but not the best choice IMO for building out trustworthy content on your money sites.

    As others pointed out don't use spinned articles on main site, those need to be hand written.

    However it is possible to create incredible quality spinned articles, it just takes some time. In my previous SEO gig I trained a girl (English major, US native) to do that. She could create a spinned template in about 2-3 hours that could create literally hundreds of thousands unique articles (we had a custom script that would automatically filter out articles that had below 60% uniqueness), that were perfectly readable by humans (now that I think about I should find her again and turn it into a business).

    It is a bit of a pain to do, but in the beginning, make an outline. The article will almost write itself.

    The more you write, the better you become.

    Pretty much like doing a research paper for school.
    Read a couple other articles and just reword them and change the order around a bit.
