I really like article writing. For one thing, it means you write only when you have the time...
For another thing, if you do a good article, I've found that your piece may get picked up by other high trust sites. I know I'm a little unusual perhaps in this because I can lay out my writing credentials and business credentials in the article bio... but I've had articles picked up my CPA web sites, business magazines and so on. Bottomline: Sometimes, maybe regularly, you get some really nice links.
I would say that the trick is to write good articles...
