Do you think ezine publishing is dead because of blogging? Is there are need to continue this? I'll admit I've only been doing it a couple months, but I'm having a really hard time growing the list, and an even harder time getting feedback, as I mentioned. And I'm putting a lot of time into this.
Do you think it's worth it? I'd love some input...
Thanks in advance!
I actually do both. On ezine, I find that the most effective articles are those that are easy to read (e.g. 5 paragraphs, each one with a sub heading, each paragraph relaying a single idea). If your writing about a niche subject, then it's usually easier to get feedback. But if your writing about a popular subject, then you'll have to wait.
Clever use of keywords also helps. I see some articles on ezine that are ridden with keywords to a point wherein quality is actually compromised. Just stick to writing helpful and easy-to-read articles, and the hits will eventually come.
