I've been writing articles for a couple of years now. There's a lot of work involved if you don't know what you're doing. However, I found something that has worked tremendously for me. I used youtube to write my articles. I would watch videos on the topics I wanted to cover then put the video into my own words. It would usually take me about 10 minutes to write a 500 word article. I could create atleast 5 more articles based on that 1 article.
