If you had asked me in 2008, I would answer that you should definitely write articles for your blog. Now over the years the definition of content has been changed. Now there is more than one type of blog content. Back then we would say content writing, now we say content creation. There is video, audio, image, flash, animation, slideshow, documents and many more forms of content you can create for your blog.

Now article writing is the most basic form of blog content creation. More people prefer reading text articles because it is so easy to consume.

In this fresh new article you will learn how to get the advertisers emailing you for putting ads in your blog.

What Advertisers Want?
