Article writing is not at all an easy task. It is not something, which anyone and everyone can do. There are some people who do not have that skill and language necessary to write a good article. Thus many people need to use the free articles given in the free article directory sites in order to add some good content to their own website.
In case you do not have any product, but wish to make some profit from the Google Ad sense program, you should do the entire article writing process all by yourself. But this is not always possible and the fund needed for doing such a thing may not be there in order to pay the money to write enough articles needed for the website.
Article writing, therefore, needs a lot of time and also some aptitude towards proper writing. If you possess all of these, then you will be able to contribute a lot of content for your site and it will be of great help in the long run.
If you are your own article writer, then you should admit and also understand that article writing for websites and paper and magazines are two different things. The styles are completely different, because the style of the readers also differs a lot when they read articles online than when they read a newspaper. The time of the attention given by any average surfer of the web is quite less because the online pages contain a lot of information. Thus while doing article writing for a website, it is important to keep in mind that the article should be precise, to the point, smart and attractive. It should also be easy to read, with no difficult language.
