About the Geek
Welcome to the How-To Geek, the friendliest source of “how-to” articles anywhere.
This is a short list of the questions that I’m asked most often.
What Is The Goal of the How-To Geek Site?
To be the best source of How-To articles anywhere, with content easy enough for beginners but useful enough for geeks as well.
Can I Email You a Question?
Absolutely. I get a lot of emails so it might take me a day or two to respond, but I almost always answer emails from readers.
Note: If you have a computer question, you’d be better off asking on the forums.
Why Did You Start This Site?
I started this site in October of 2006 because of my frustration with all of the How-To sites out there. Almost all of the other sites are either targeted at a particular niche, or so broad that they are impossible to navigate.
Does the logo really look like you?
I don’t wear the cape.
Where did the logo come from?
The short answer: I enjoy drawing.
Can I Write Articles For The How-To Geek?
Absolutely! Send me an email and we’ll get you up and running.
Can I Republish Your Articles On My Site?
This site has taken literally thousands of hours of work to create and maintain, and every single article is original copyrighted content. I understand that in the how-to/tech world there’s only so many ways to do something, so I’m not trying to imply that you can’t write a similar article or quote my article with a link back, I’m just saying you can’t outright copy my words and screenshots.
Can I Translate Your Articles?
You are welcome to translate the articles into another language as long as you follow a couple of rules:
- You cannot use our images.
- You must link back to the original article.
Where Do you Get Your Article Ideas?
1) My own personal experiences in the tech world.
2) Suggestions and questions from readers.
Is there a comment policy?
