Interested in becoming a geek?
We are a fast-growing entertainment website in the geek, tech, nerd, science, pop culture, etc space and we’d love for you to contribute to our further growth and success!
Who we are looking for
If you’re funny, witty, goofy, geeky, and just an all-around chill person who wants to write about anything in the realm of geekiness and the topics above, then you’d be a great fit.
You don’t need to be an amazing writer, but we are looking for someone who has at least passed a 5th grade English class!
Our editors will also help you become better as you go.
Knowing WordPress will be a big help, but if you don’t, we can show you the ropes.
Who we are NOT looking for
Sneaky link builders. You know who you are.
We don’t mind offering our contributors an author byline and allowing them to promote their own projects once in a while, but if your goal is to simply build links for your wonderful websites or for your clients, we will sniff you out.
Articles will be subject to editorial approval, so if you want to waste your time writing something only to have it declined, feel free.
Will you be paid?
Sadly, you will not be paid.
Why won’t you be paid?
Oh, that’s simple.
So what’s in it for you?
As we are still a small site and have no money for you (or even for us, please send us some food), the only way we can compensate you is with exposure and a growing platform.
You will be able to promote yourself or your projects in your author byline and in your articles (WHEN APPROPRIATE).
And like we said above, we’ll do our best to share our knowledge and wisdom with you to help you grow in any way we can.
Alright, so how do you apply?
