If you have a great article you can submit it to a site like slashdot or digg or reddit or stumbleupon.

My best advice is to visit these sites, learn how they work, watch what type of article succeeds there. If you are writing about science or tech then slashdot is great. Reddit can be good for about anything. Digg seems to be heavy on web-related topics. Anything can work at stumbleupon.
