How to Find Great Free Articles for Your Blog

Sometimes you run out of ideas for your blog, and sometimes you just want to post a wider range of content. Either way, there is an easy way to post other peoples great articles on your blog - free, and with complete legal permission, as long as you follow the rules.

A number of article directories offer free articles on almost any subject for you to post to your own blog.

The following instructions apply to EzineArticles.com but ArticlesBase.com and others are very similar.
Step 1
Go to www.ezinearticles.com

Step 2
Click on a category, sub-category, and an article you like.

Step 3
Click on "Ezine Publisher" in the upper right corner of the page.

Step 4
Copy the contents of the box labeled "HTML Version"
For an example, look at http://ezinearticles.com/ezinepublisher/?id=1796600

Step 5
Create a Post in your blog, select "Edit HTML" mode, and Paste what you copied in step 4.

Step 6
Click Preview to see how the article looks.

Step 7
Select "Compose" mode, and correct any formatting errors.
For Blogger (Blogspot), you need to remove the extra blank lines.
For WordPress, you need to remove the duplicate title.

Step 8
Copy the title to your blog post. Copy the KeyWords field from the EzineArticles page to your post's Tags or Labels field. Click Publish

Step 9
Respect the rights of the author by NOT modifying the article, author name, or links in ANY way (other than as mentioned in step 7). The author has provided a quality article for your free use on your blog specifically because he or she desires and expects that your blog readers will recognize the value of the author's writing and will follow the link to his or her web site or blog.
