This is for the administrators of HowtoGeek.com.

Hi,
I've been sending a guest post pitch to contact@howtogeek.com as well as i.am.supergeeky@howtogeek.com over the last 2 days, and my mails keep returning to me. I don't see any other contact details on the website, so I was wondering if you could help me here.

I am sorry to have posted this here. I simply could not find another option.

Thanks in advance!
Shaun

Guys,

I just now sent an email to help@howtogeek.com, and that bounced, too :(

Can you whitelist my email address, or send me an email to which I can try replying?

My email is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Edit: By Gmod.

Best!
Shaun

Shaun please do not post your E-mail. It is for your protection. What do you mean by your mail bounced?

Hi Warlock,

Thanks for the warning. That was stupid of me.

All emails I send to @howtogeek.com get returned to me saying that I am spamming you guys...or something like that.

What could be happening you think?

Regards,
Shaun

I don't know, I tried the E-mail yesterday and it went through fine and was answered. A moderator answered and I told him it was a test. Said, the problem must be on your end. What mail do you normally use?

Edit: What is it you want to say maybe just state it here.

schatman, please try again from another account, if you have one.

Are you using web for your gmail account?

I don't have another account...never needed one..Been using this for years now. I am just using Gmail..no web. It's pretty weird. All my friends and my work associates receive my email without a problem. It's only emails sent to HowtoGeek that get returned.

Even if I were to state it here, and it's pretty obvious by now, I would still need to send my my guest post by email. I was pitching a post titled ""Smartphone Video Tips for N00bs: How to Safely Store Memories." I've discussed how smartphone users, well noobs actually, can safely store memories through videos. Surprisingly, a lot of people lose data when transferring from smartphone to pc. I'll discuss, in a fun way, the steps needed to avert that.

This is pretty much it. If H2G is interested in the pitch, I would still need to send the post by email, wouldn't I?

And any particular reason why I am not getting the comments here in my email?

We don't post comments in E-mail. Working on it. Be patient.

Gotcha! I thought comments here were automatically sent to member emails. Thanks!

@Vistamike,

I was wondering if you'd be interested in a story titled """Smartphone Video Tips for N00BS: How to Safely Store Memories."

The story will discuss how to safely transfer data/videos to PC from phone as many people lose their data while transferring.

This is what I was basically trying to send in an email plus an intro about myself and samples of previously published works.
