Writing Articles for the Education Market

Article writing can be a great way to share your expertise with a wider audience. Thanks to the internet, information on almost any subject can be accessed instantaneously, by the simple click of a button or a quick dig around a search engine. This is great for anyone trying to find out more about a particular subject, but it is also important for anyone who wants to share their knowledge and expertise with the wider world. Before the introduction of the internet, the only real ways of sharing knowledge and experiences within a specific industry was through publishing articles in magazines or other offline publications, delivering lectures, providing content and texts for individuals to study or through the publication or self publication of books, leaflets or pamphlets on a specific subject. Nowadays however you can write up information that can be published online. It can either be published in the form of an article and distributed across free article syndication sites or it can be published on your own personal web space, such as a website, a blog or even in bite sized chunks through the use of twitter.
