It seems everywhere we look there are tons of news articles. We just can’t get away from it. Every time we go to a home page there is another news article. Our television sets now have 24 hour news from CNN. Something that was unheard of only a couple decades ago. We have newspapers, radio, TV, cable, and even the Internet news blurbs all day long. Now people have twitter and mobile telephones and they can’t get away from it.
When someone important dies, everyone knows about it in 10 minutes all the way around the world, as they receive instant messages, news alerts, and flash bulletins. So, with all this known how is a writer or an author of online articles able to get ahead? After all, the competition for news is blasted at such a high rate of speed it is almost impossible to compete. By the time you write up a news article there are already 50 articles with the exact same story showing up on Google using specific keywords.
Still, over the years I’ve written over 2500 news and political articles, and I’ve received endless comments and e-mails from them, as well as millions of article views. How did I do it? It’s simple really when you are reading news stories, read four or five in the same venue about the same story. Then recall other similar things that have happened in the past and tie those all together, and then give your opinion of how this affects various aspects of industry and life in our society.
By doing this you are creating commentary and information that is about News Topics, but it isn’t actually the news. Best of all these articles stand as Evergreen articles for long periods of time that help with the human record. Next time, another news event comes out, along the same lines as those before your old article of what happened last time will have new life, giving people a new perspective on an older story. Please consider all this.
