I recently started publishing articles to Street Articles. It's a relatively new article directory. I think I got the link from Jenifer aka Pot Pie girl via one of those mass emails. I may be wrong but I think she and the guys at Wealthy Affiliate created it. Anyway, approval is fast. The few articles I have published have ranked well, on the first page of Google. The format is easy to use. Will it be the next Ezine Giant? I don't know, but I imagine there is that possibility.
