Help Wanted

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 @ (remembering to remove the spaces) and we can take it from there.

  1. Ohhh If I only knew the WHS better I would be great to help you and the site out.

    Unfortunely I

    • thanks Anders – but even as a WHS newbie you could contribute with how you are finding it, initial impressions, etc. We would be more than happy to publish anything you wanted to write 🙂

  2. Hi,

    Living in Sweden, I am a avid WHS user and would like to contribute to the WHS community by reviewing Add-Ins and write for Using

  3. Hi,

    I have been using WHS for over a year and have been selling and installing them for the last 6 months. I would love to add to the community and reiew whatever software you have.

  4. I would be happy to help out if you ever need it. Sorry I'm late to the game but I just found you web site. I've had my WHS for 6 months or so and just love it. I love it so much I had to build a WHS for my office network too. I've got a little blog I even wrote a post about my WHS I built. Give it a read if you like. Besides who does like free swag?


  5. Would like to help out. I am using a home built WHS DELL 4700. Am using Avast AV for WHS and Lights-Out add-in. Just applied the PP2 Beta and I have 2X Win XP systems and 3X Win7 RTM systems (Technet Plus) One Win 7 Ultmate x64 system is used for a Media Center with a Linksys Extender Box. I have one MAC Mini that I am backing up to my WHS based on a hack I found in the Fourms.

  6. Hi, I would be happy to test and review as you require. I am running a home built WHS consisting of an MSI K7DMaster dual chip motherboard with 2 AMD 2200 MP's 2 gig Ram. I use this as a media server, personal storage, and lately have been using it as a central download station. Let me know if I can be of any help

  7. I am running WHS and have been for around one year, it totally revolutionised usage of computers in our house. I would be really interested in dabbling with WHS related things. I am a programmer by trade and would love to see more WHS add-ins being produced making WHS the central hub.

  8. I would love to contribute to the site and community. I am somewhat of a newb to WHS but i have immersed myself in it. I have 3 deployed to remote jobsites for ease of administrating.
