I think a published article can serve as sample to be a source of inspiration. When I first joined forums, what I did was to read the posts in order to learn how and what to write. With this article thing, I think it is also applicable especially those who are not writers like me will be inspired and try to write. I'm actually halfway in one article for this purpose but I yet have to gain a headway for lack of motivation perhaps. But surely when I see a published article here then I would be able to finish that and probably write more.
