Think you have the perfect combination of geek knowledge and writing skills? We’re looking for an experienced writer to join our team. Please apply if you have the following qualities:

  • You must be a geek at heart.
  • You must be able to write articles that are easy to understand.
  • You must be able to take a great screenshot. We pride ourselves on great screenshots and you’ll need to be able to produce them.
  • If you want to write about Windows, you should be running Windows 7 already. Linux, Mac, Android, and even iPhone writers are welcome too.
  • You must be able to follow our style guide.
  • You must be creative. You must generate ideas for articles on your own, and take suggestions like a pro.
  • You must be able to write tips, how-to articles, guides, instructional articles, etc. We are not looking for another freeware software reviewer.

How To Apply (Important) Send an email to and include the following in your email:

  • Explain why your geek skills are worth touting to 140,000+ RSS, email, Twitter and Facebook readers each day.
  • Your name and location. We’d prefer US-based, but that’s not a requirement.
  • Any previous experience you have with writing, not necessarily with blogging.
  • A brief overview of the topics you are familiar with, and what operating systems/computers you have access to.
  • Most Important: We want a sample How-To article. We will not publish this unless we hire you.
