I see an advertisement at the end of the article, so presumably some money is changing hands as a direct result of eyeballs visiting the page.)
Why not summarize the article, pointing out a few of the points King is making, and then encourage a visit to the original link? This is not a classroom, where the "teaching" aspect of fair use comes into play, so I don't think that's proper justification either. Quoting is good. Summary encourages visiting the original source of the article, so that's good too. Copying verbatim... I don't think that's respectful of the author.

Seriously, though, you won't be sorry. The combination of auto-bio and how-to-write makes it an easy, entertaining read and most will actually learn something from the endeavor.
