Are you an RIA developer? Do you make Flash games or Unity games? Are you always on top of the latest industry news? You sound like the perfect person to contribute to Activetuts+!
We're on the lookout for new authors, so read on to find out more...
What We're Looking For
Right now, we're putting out a general call for bloggers.
Okay, technically everything on Activetuts+ could be considered a blog post. What we mean, specifically, is the more chatty, conversational posts; articles that aren't focused on building a specific type of app, or implementing a certain effect.
The best way to illustrate this is through a few examples from other Tuts+ sites. Some articles clear up misconceptions, offer advice, or discuss a pertinent issue:
- Why Many Developers Hate ASP.NET... and Why They're Wrong
- Should You Watermark Your Art?
- Elements of a Great Web Design Portfolio
- 5 Cardinal Sins of WordPress Theme Development
Other posts help readers discover useful and inspirational content that's relevant to their niche:
- A Look into Shashthree's Latest Experiment "Quote Unquote"
- 50 Fabulous Photos of Joyous Celebrations
- 50 Practical, Problem Solving Items From ThemeForest
- Massive Collection of Vintage Vector Graphics
Payment will depend on the length, depth, and subject of the article, but you can expect to earn from $50 to $150 per post.
Pitch a Blog Post
Got an idea? Great! Pitch it to us (in about a paragraph or so) using the following form:
As long as you've got an original, useful idea and can string a decent English sentence together, there's a high chance your pitch will be accepted, so don't be shy.
No specific ideas? That's okay, we're still interested - just submit some relevant examples of previous writing you've done, whether it's on your own blog, on forums, or even on Google+.
Of course, this is also open to existing Activetuts+ writers, past and present - you know how to get in touch.
We're looking forward to reading your pitches!
