Think you can write for techAU? Bullsh*t show me ! [updated]


    “Its time to expand.”

    techAU has been growing phenomenally over the past 4 years, but there’s an opportunity to do even better. With an ambitious goal of increasing traffic to the site 5x-10x in 2011, I’m going to need some help. I’m looking for 5 Australians who are passionate about technology and want to share that experience with the world. If you think you’ve got what it takes then, then go ahead, prove it !

    There’s no complicated rigmarole.. just send an email including which tech categories your passionate about and an example post. I’ll play editor, for the first few, but once I’m comfortable you’ll get to post directly to the site.

    Update 1
    Great news! We already have our first new writer on board, taking care of Mobile and Home Theatre.. best be quick if you want in.

    Update 2
    Even more  great news, we now have a second writer on board who’ll take care of Hacks, Tips and tricks as well as how-to.

    Update 3
    You guys are amazing, looks like we’ll have 5 new writers in a variety of categories, the latest are photography and design. Don’t let that stop you from applying, there’s still some categories uncovered.

    Suggested categories include:

    • Gaming
    • Social / Web
    • Phones / Mobile apps
    • Hardware
    • Software / Desktop apps
    • Photography
    • Hacks, tips and ticks, how-to’s
    • Design
    • Startups
    • Green Tech

    As for the reward, your name will be on each post you write. This can form a portfolio of writing that’ll follow you wherever you go. There’s no cold hard cash on offer for a couple of reasons. The first is that I want techAU writers to write because they have something valuable to contribute, not because they are financially motivated. The second reason is that the site’s income goes straight into hosting costs and equipment upgrades to improve in the future. There will likely be some fringe benefits along the way, potentially attending conferences, getting the latest products to review etc.

    Applicants should read and understand the unique flavour that is techAU. Covering the latest news, product and service reviews and sharing your personal experience in your categories of interest/s is all part of the gig. There’s no minimum or maximum amount of posts, just write as often as you can, the more content we produce, the more visitors to the site will increase.

    Being part of the team, you’ll also have the opportunity to make suggestions about future direction of the site. So if your a creative person who like to blog, then send me a damn email ! If your not right for the gig, please pass it on to your friends, spread the word !
