Do you know alot about something, even if a very specific thing? want to contribute and earn $$ ?
I am looking for people who know what they know and know it well, primarily in the following broad categories:
- Service config e.g. DNS, mail, snmp, httpd.
- Public or private services e.g. casting (audio/video), game servers etc.
Just a limited list but you get the overall idea hopefully.
I am looking to start a series of guest posts hopefully by the end of this year depending on costs called 'Getting Started' or 'First Steps'
The idea behind it is that many of us are great at something even if that is a very specific part of a broader scope, many of us, myself included would love to get started with something new but sometimes the hundreds of conflicting semi-anonymous, aged guides take little in to consideration and have very little interaction or maintenance.
It would be great to do a tutorial or series of tutorials on your first steps to learning XYZ whereby someone can come to it from a standpoint of only knowing how to log in and install some packages to really getting on the first rung of the ladder with something.
If you feel you have something to share please get in touch with your idea and what you would like to charge for writing it, I expect that you will also be available to check the post periodically on the main site to answer any queries or questions (within reason) and provide at least some minimal level of support/aftercare for a short period after being published.
Additionally based on popularity you should ideally be prepared to do a follow up/ next level post to slightly advance things, obviously, this requirement will be based on the level of engagement the initial article generates.
Don't feel that it needs to be a book either, even just practical tips would be great, for example, some people are grep/awk/sed ninjas, some practical examples of output/file/dataset manipulation would be perfectly valid and usually short and sweet.
This offer, for now, is open-ended without expiry, I am not setting a rate as everyone is in a different socioeconomic bracket all around the world so I would like you to contact me with your own rates.
Free is also fine if you just want something posted but don't want any money however I would still ask you to stick to the terms of being available for follow up and possible continuance.
Resources will be provided to assist with formatting your articles, essentially either private access to the blog platform or a hidden subsection of the forum so you can work on it without it being public and see what it will look like in real-time.
Depending on the popularity of this I won't be able to guarantee dates of posting, the order of things will also be decided based on predicted popularity over cost.
If you are reading this and have nothing to contribs but would love to learn something specific or learn something to a higher standard or just get started with something then please say what that is below it may help inform decisions and encourage others that do know that thing to come forward.
