Our community is growing every day and we’re pleased to host their projects on our Make and News pages.
We have over 7.5K email subscribers, 20K monthly website visitors, 70K monthly page views and over 20K Social Media fans, which means more people will read and share our own and community’s projects and tutorials.
If you love writing and/or you have amazing design skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of makers, designers, engineers and doers we'd love to hear from you.
Please take some time and read our guidelines, so it will hopefully answer all the questions you might have.
The Bare Essentials for Our Posts
We try to have as detailed content as we can, so our audience can find the information they need from building a project to completed project made either by us or our community. Successful guest contributions for us are well-written, detailed and data-driven posts that teach our readers something new about the technology and electronics industry. However, we tend to write about tips, tutorials and also write about our community’s projects and collaborations we have. We're also interested in publishing any topic that our community and readers care about, such as design, IoT, new technologies, wearables, exhibitions that are related to our industry and electronics among other things.
A few other things to take into consideration:
- Original story, interesting and well-written topics. If your post has information from external sources, make sure it has our tone of voice and also has references to the original source.
- Posts should reflect the writing style/tone of our blog. We try to be casual and relaxed, yet informative.
- We always have references to external sources.
- Try not to include more than one link to your blog’s website.
The post types we accept
Since we have articles with our community’s projects and tutorials; we’d like to have more articles related to Internet trends, technology, electronics and interesting projects, ideas and innovations.
Here are a few different types of blog posts that we would accept:
