Are you looking for information to help you write your own articles? Or are you looking for a service to write and distribute articles for you?
If the latter, you can visit my site. I offer ezine article writing services and distribution for articles.
If you want information on writing your own articles, check out Idea Marketers. They have a large database of articles and I'm sure you'd find some on how to write ezine articles there.

Thanks for the wonderful suggestions.
well, what I wanna do is to write articles myself, but I want the help in writing them. I have done a lot of writing but not exactly like that...
So, if there is any resource that I can take for reference that can help me in writing them, It would be great

But as far as informational articles go, there are probably writers' groups all over the internet with all kinds of hints and tips.
First tip-- spellchecker! :-) You can never go wrong there.
I'd advise that you stick to simple as you start out-- write up an outline of what you want to say, say what you want as plainly as you can, spellcheck it, edit it for clarity, read it over, see if you missed anything, write in what you missed, rinse, repeat.

I haven't read through it in awhile to know if it would be all that helpful to articles. Seems to me, where articles are concerned, either you can write 'em, or you can't!
Ghost writers do them, however.

Writing, certainly at this level, is a learned skill, just like playing the piano. Anyone can learn to write well, as long as they're willing to dedicate some time and effort to the task.
Seems to me, where articles are concerned, either you can write 'em, or you can't!
* How-To articles are useful, especially for learning the basics. I haven't seen Karon's, but I'm sure it's good, and there are many others. One of the most practical I've seen (and used, in one form or another, for thirty years) is The Elements of Style.
* You won't learn to play the piano well if you don't like and listen to music. Similarly, you won't learn to write well unless you do a LOT of reading. Find several writers you particularly enjoy and read everything you can. Pay attention to how they structure their article. Note their voice and style. Read and read critically. This part of your writing education can not be skipped or trivialized.
* Finally, you won't learn to play the piano unless you actually sit down to the keyboard and play. Writing, too, requires practice. LOTS of practice. IMO, a writer should write every single day of their life. Just as someone learning to play the piano shouldn't expect every exercise to be a performance, the beginning writer should know that most of what is written will be initially unusable. That doesn't mean that's it's useless, though.

There are tons of writer's sites, and online groups dedicated to writing, technical writing, and how to write an article. Just go to Yahoo groups, type in "writing", "technical writing" and you'll get hundreds to choose from.
I suggest joining a good nonfiction critique group online for help with your first few articles. You'll be asked to critique what others write as well, and it becomes invaluable editing experience as you learn what makes a good article.
I remember ages ago being a member of groups like this, when starting out: I learned as much, or more, from critiquing others as I did receiving critiques.
And it helped me develop editing skills that I still use (and get paid for) to this day!
Inscriptions ezine, Writers Write, Inklings, Writers Digest and other web sites all have articles aimed at beginning writers that will help tremendously; many have sections that address different genres, such as nonfiction writing.
Most of all, start writing. Then share your articles with friends, or your critique group. Get feedback on it. Find out where your presonal writing weaknesses are, as well as strengths lie.
Once you have a good grasp of basic writing, THEN go back and check the article for optimization if desired, and rewrite as needed to include keywords. But create a great article FIRST, before doing this.
I wish you the best as you start writing articles, it's wonderful fun,
