    We Need an Awesome Weekly Writer16
    It's that time again; I'm in need of a kick-ass - and consistent - author to help out on Nettuts once per week. Your duties will be to write an in-depth tutorial or article each week on anything ranging from PHP to JavaScript to CSS. Your pay will begin at $200 per article, resulting in roughly $800 per month. However, if you do a great job, you'll also be invited to write a Premium tutorial every month, which would increase your pay to around $1100 - $1200 each month. Not bad for a once a week gig! When I make these kinds of posts, I receive far too many one-sentence emails that don't help. This time, to apply (and note that not many people do), I need you to email me with a few sentences about yourself, and a link to something that you've written on the web. It can be a link to your blog, or even a tutorial you've written for another web development tutorial site. If this is not included, your email will be deleted. Please email with this information. Thanks, everyone! Read More…
