Would you like to post articles on The Tech Spy blog?
You don’t have to be the next Jason Bradbury (of Gadget Show fame) – although if you are and you want to write about a technology-related topic, we’d love to hear from you! However, this is an opportunity for anybody who thinks they would like to contribute a decent guest post to our blog so please read on.
Firstly, a couple of tips: please consider the tone, style and clarity of your writing. If you are breaking a grammatical rule, make sure there is a good reason for doing so. It is helpful if your writing has a little sparkle in the eye and makes interesting reading for our audience. Use a great metaphor or tell a compelling story. Spend some time on your headline.
Oh and please run your piece through spell check – we’re not perfect either. The occasional typo sneaks in despite our best efforts. But we put the time and attention in to make our posts as good as they can possibly be.
If you feel you have something interesting to say about the world of tech then this is a place for your best, most creative writing. The first draft isn’t always the best – it might be the third or fourth version which ticks all of the boxes. We always find it can be very helpful to set the post aside for a day or two before coming back to it with fresh eyes.
Oh yes, and your post will also appear on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for a tidy bit of extra publicity for you.
So if you have a useful, relevant and well-written post, what’s the next step?
Email us via the contact form below and let us know what you’d like to write about and why you think it would suit our blog. It’s always a good idea to link to a post or two on your own blog that you’re particularly proud of. (If you have a blog, that is. It’s not a requirement.)
Please be patient with us–some days we’ve got a lot on our plates and we can’t answer email as quickly as we would like but we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Don’t get too down-hearted if we can’t publish your post immediately either because we may keep it on file to use a later stage.
We look forward to hearing from you!
