Calling All JavaScript Writers

Keeping a blog maintained solo, while creating useful projects and making updates to the design of the site, can be quite the stressful for a husband and father. I’m having a hard time keeping up the pace. I started this blog because I love JavaScript and I wanted to help other JavaScripters keep up with the times and learn, but now I need some help fulfilling that dream. If you know anything about JavaScript and can write relatively well, I’d like to hear from you.

What I Need From You

I’m not asking much from you, but I am still asking for something:

  • Knowledge of JavaScript. You don’t need a whole lot of knowledge. In fact, part of the reason I created this blog was to help beginners, so if you’re just starting out and have something to share that may be of some use the other newbies, then you can write for this blog.
  • 350 Words / 5 minutes. 350 words isn’t much but it’s a good minimum to guarantee we’re not completely wasting the readers’ time. Obviously we’d all prefer it being longer than this, but I’m not looking for 2000 words or anything. If you’re writing much more than 1000 words, you’re probably just going to get some people posting TLDR. If you’re making a screencast, I want it to be at least 5 minutes, which isn’t much, in addition to at least 200 words.
  • Monthly Contribution. I’m not going to be strict about this, but if you can help out about once per month, that would be preferable. If you want, you can write a single article and submit that to me, but I’m going to reserve one of the “perks” mentioned below for regular authors. I’ll talk about it a bit more later.

What You’ll Get From Me

Sadly, since I currently make little to no money from this blog I cannot offer you any money for writing, but here’s what I can do for you:

  • About the Author. At the bottom of each post, I will place a small box that gives a short description about you, the author. You can include anything in there about yourself, but if you’re going to promote links, please keep them related to web development. The only exceptions to this are social media profiles.
  • Author Profile Page. If you write regularly, I will create an entire page dedicated to you. Think of it as the About the Author box on steroids. You may say anything about yourself and as much as you want. You can promote any links you wish, including links not related to web development. The About the Author box will have a link to this author profile.

Sign Me Up Scotty!

If you’re interested in becoming a writer for this blog go ahead and Contact Me. I promise to reply to every email (unlike Nettuts+ who hasn’t replied to any of the 4 emails I’ve sent them in the past couple months). Eventually, if I believe you to be “worthy”, I’ll send you more information about how to get this done. So, what are you waiting for? Write me an email today! God Bless and Happy Coding!
