Here at Using Windows Home Server, we have previously put out the call for new writers for the site, and a number of you have answered that call. We have some fantastic writers in the team, including Tim Daleo, Phil Bevan and Joe Nell.
We have also had a fantastic response from you, the readers, to our various giveaways when we have asked you to suggest articles you would like to see.
The problem is that there are just not enough hours in the day to do everything that is needed, so we are once again putting out the call.
Do you want to review some software or some add-ins? We can supply you with the software to review. You don’t have to have written anything in the past, as long as you are willing to look at the software or the add-in and write up something that others may find interesting or useful.
You may ask yourself what you will get in return? I would love to say riches, good fortune, praise, etc, etc, but in reality you will get a great feeling about being part of the community, adding value to an already growing arena. Plus you will get free stuff! That stuff may include software, books, other swag like t-shirts, bags, etc – it all just depends at the time, but be certain if there is some free stuff going, you will be at the top of the list. Plus you will often be able to get free access to events just by proving you write for a site! Trust me, it works!
Most of us MVP’s were fortunate enough to start by giving back to the community – so who knows where it might lead for you?
So, what have you got to lose? Why not give it a go, who knows, you may like it?
You don’t have to have written before, and in fact, we can always help you write up the review if you like, it is more important that you are willing to give it a go. The reviews can be for Windows Home Server, Windows Media Center, whatever you like really. And the same goes for articles – is there something you want to write and see published?
So, if you are interested, drop me a line at andrew @ usingwhs.com (remembering to remove the spaces) and we can take it from there.
