We’re officially accepting contributors to join our awesome team of tech writers!
If you’re as passionate about technology as we are, devour all the latest gadget and digital innovation news out there, love testing out new products, and feel you can provide excellent content for our readers, then we’d love to hear from you.
If you’ve been following our website closely, then you probably know that our content is mostly geared towards gadget reviews, software reviews, guides and tutorials with the end-user in mind. We consider ourselves the go-to source when it comes to finding straightforward solutions to common technical issues that visitors might struggle with.
Let’s face it – technology is not always easy to crack and that’s why we’re determined to offer our readers real solutions to the challenges they’re facing. If you consider yourself an IT expert or a bit of a tech nerd and enjoy helping out your community by writing informative articles and tutorials, then we’d be happy to receive a guest post from you.
We’d hate for your submission to be rejected, so here are a few points to consider before getting in touch with us:
Guest post submission process
HOW TO PITCH
- Send us an e-mail at emilee.mcknight[at]technologydreamer[dot]com. Be sure to make your Subject Line as clear as possible, so that your guest post request does not get lost in our daily flux of e-mails (e.g. “Guest post inquiry”, “Guest posting request”, “Guest post submission”, “Contributor application” etc.)
- We’d like to get to know you first, so tell us a few things about your background. What got you on this path? How long have you been writing? How did you discover us?
- We don’t say no to first-time writers, but if you are a seasoned professional and are bursting at the opportunity to brag with your portfolio, go ahead and send us a few samples. We don’t mind. We’d actually love to take a look and see if you’d be a good fit for us.
- We don’t accept direct article submissions. Please send us a few topic proposals first and we’ll then see if your ideas are a good match for our audience.
ARTICLE SUBMISSION & REVIEWING PROCESS
Once you’ve sent us your e-mail submissions, one of our editors will carefully review your application and get back to you with more details. If your topic proposal is accepted, you may then proceed to send us the article.
- As far as the format goes, we’d prefer if you sent us your submission in a Word doc. If you have any images that you would like to include, please attach them separately in the e-mail.
- After you’ve sent us the article, our editors will review it and get back to you with a decision. We realize that there’s a great deal of effort that goes into every piece of content that is created, so we make it our mission to respond to every writer that gets in touch with us. The reviewing stage usually takes between 5-10 working days, so please be patient and bear with us while we go through your submission.
- If your article is chosen for publication, you will receive an e-mail notification informing you of this and another e-mail once the article is live.
- Please note that due to the high volume of applications that we receive, we may not be able to respond to every inquiry.
Tips on how to write an ideal guest post
- Bring something useful to the table. An ideal guest post should provide real value for the readers and answer an important question or bring a unique insight on a current topic of interest.
- Plagiarism is a no-no for us, so make sure that your article is as original as possible and reflects your own ideas.
- Add relevant sources. Ideally, every study or claim that you mention should be backed up by a high-authority source that demonstrates its validity.
- Include visuals. Posts that contain images usually get 94% more views than those that contain only text. For better engagement, we recommend that you include as many relevant visuals as possible (these can be images, graphics, charts, infographics, video tutorials etc.)
- Make it easy to read. If the content is too cluttered, visitors will have a hard time reading or understanding your information. Include subheadings when necessary and make use of bullet points/numbers if you’re planning to write a listicle.
