LINUX
Want to write for Linux.com? Here’s some information on what we like in an article, and how to approach us.

We pay $100 – $300 (via check, bank transfer, or PayPal) for articles. Most of the articles we publish are between 800 and 1,500 words, but we’re flexible in either direction. Articles must be original and not have appeared elsewhere in English. Look at what we’re already publishing to get an idea of the kind of stories we like, but don’t be afraid to submit an idea that’s unlike anything else we’ve ever run. We love originality. To improve your chances of having a piece accepted, follow the format and writing tips in the attached template document (right-click and save file).

We publish news, reviews, case studies, HOWTOs, feature articles, and fact-based commentary directly related to Linux, open source, or free software. We’re especially interested in reviews and case studies of corporate and enterprise-level products…….

WORLDSTART
What We’re Looking For: We are primarily looking for tips for our e-mail newsletter, Computer Tips & Techniques. This is published daily to 125,000 readers and focuses on tips and tricks the average computer user can utilize.

We are also seeking feature articles for our website covering any and all aspects of computing. In addition, we are looking for computer terms and definitions for the Terms section of our website.

All submissions should be written at a level anyone can understand. Our goal is to show the average user how to use his or her computer. Most tech manuals and books assume the user is already computer literate, but our publication / web site is designed to help everyone learn their computer, not just techies.

For example, let’s say you had a tip that involved opening the Mouse properties under the control panel. Most publications would simply tell the user to open the Mouse icon under the Control Panel.

We are looking for more detail than that. We tell our readers EXACTLY how it’s done – Hit the Start Button, Settings, Control Panel. Then double-click the Mouse icon.

That’s what we’re looking for.

Submissions should be well written, require a minimum of editing, include relevant screen shots (click here for assistance with this), and be presented in a light-hearted style. We like to entertain while we teach. If you submit a tip that reads like a high school biology textbook, it’s going to get rejected.

Types of Articles & Payment:

Note that we will confirm payment and rights before publishing any submitted piece. We generally pay net 7 on publication (we’ll cut you a check within a week of when your piece was published).

Computer Tips & Techniques

We are looking for general windows, internet, and e-mail tips. Tips that relate to one specific program or hardware device usually are not appropriate for this publication.

The newsletter has two primary sections – Computers 101 & Tip of the Day. The Computers 101 section is presented in a Q&A style and generally covers a topic beginners would be interested in.

The Tip of the Day section is geared towards everyone. It still needs to be written in a way that everyone can understand.

Your best bet is to check out a few of our back issues to get an idea of how long the tips are and how they are presented.

Note that all submissions need to include any relevant screenshots!

Payment varies widely depending on the quality of the submission, length, and usefulness of the tip or topic.

* The minimum page length is 1 page (approximately 400 words) with screenshots – $45.00, without screenshots – $35.00
* Two pages (approximately 800 words) with screenshots – $55.00, without screenshots – $45.00
* The max is three pages (approximately 1200-1500 words) with screenshots – $65.00, without screenshots – $55.00…

“” When you give useful desktop items, such as pens and memo clips, to your potential customers, you’re ensuring that they’ll see your company name many times throughout their business week. Colorful imprinted products, such as sticky notes, brighten up the desktop “landscape” and create a cheerful, positive association with your business in the customer’s mind.

You can’t beat having a business gift in place that will remind decision-makers of your company’s name and services. When your paper clip dispenser or letter slitter is on a client’s desk, your company’s contact information will be at her fingertips at the very moment she’s ready to choose a supplier or service provider. “”
