Interested in sharing your experience on Raspberry Pi with other fans?
I’m looking for new writers to publish tutorials on the website, with different skills and hardware than mine, to answer even more questions.
If you have a decent level on Raspberry Pi, are good at writing and are really motivated to share your knowledge while making some extra cash, this might be a match!
I’ll be honest, though: It will be a lot of work to write each tutorial.
RaspberryTips is not a forum or somewhere where you can share 3 commands and that’s it. Your tutorial will follow a specific plan, be detailed enough for beginners to understand and include links to other resources to go further (on the website or elsewhere).
So, if you are a good teacher and like to spent time explaining complicated things, it should be fun. But don’t expect to write a quick tutorial in 15min and that’s it for the month.
How to apply?
If you are still interested, here is how the application process works:
- You can fill this form with your contact information and a few questions to better understand your level and motivation
- If your application seems interesting for me, I’ll contact you in the following weeks to do a test article.
Don’t expect a quick answer, I’ll look at the answers from time to time when I need it. I don’t need a full team of writers for the moment, just a few good ones 🙂
If your application is selected, you’ll receive an email with the following information:
- A training video on how to write blog posts (yes, there is a specific recipe) and how to use WordPress.
- A list of 3 to 5 topic ideas where you can choose from (to write the test article).
At the beginning I’ll send you the ideas list, but later you’ll be able to suggest others
- Probably a few ideas on how to do the research and plan for your test article.
- The number of words target (in general between 1000 and 3000)
- You’ll be pay half the standard price for this test article (seen next section)
If your test article is good enough, you’ll become an official writer for RaspberryTips.
The schedule after that
Once you’re an official writer for us, you’ll need to sign an agreement will all the conditions concerning your work.
We might work with you on the details, but it will include things like schedule, deadlines, pricing and contractual information.
We pay a new writer at a minimum of $0.02 per word. So, it’s $20 for a 1000 words blog post and $60 for the biggest tutorials we have. If you have no idea what 1000 words is, this is a 1000 words blog post example.
You’ll get a raise if you are doing a good job on your monthly articles (quality, quantity, schedule, etc.).
