Do you ever read a story and have a sudden urge to comment? Do you ever hear about a new product and want to tell everyone about it? Have you ever had a good (or bad) experience with a product you purchased, and want to tell the world? Well, we can help you. We are looking for some new blood on the Apple Thoughts team, to offer differing perspectives and ideas. If you are interested in sharing your experiences or viewpoints about Apple, their products or their vendors, how about sharing it with our readers?
We are currently looking for volunteers to become Contributing Editors. And, before you stop yourself from applying because you aren't a "professional," that is exactly why we want you. We want people that are interested in, and passionate about Apple and their products and vendors. We want you to share YOUR experiences and viewpoints, either good or bad, about what is happening in the world of Apple.
As a Contributing Editor, you will have news assigned to you, but you are encouraged to search the news about Apple and post on whatever else you find. It might be some interesting product you have discovered, perhaps a topic that you have opinions on, or just something you want to take a moment on to rant or rave, or both. Besides the benefit of having a platform to share your voice, you will also have the opportunity to represent Apple Thoughts at special events, such as trade shows and conferences in your area.
All we require from you is, number one, an interest in all things Apple and the desire to share this interest by posting your viewpoints and opinions with our readers. And number two, we need a certain amount of consistency. While it is hard to pinpoint an exact number of news stories we'd like from you (I know we all have real lives to contend with), it isn't out of the realm of possibility to post one or two stories per day. Don't worry, its more along the lines of having a few minutes at the beginning or end of your day to post a story or two as well as your thoughts and opinions on it for others to see. If you are interested, fill out the contact form and let us know a little bit about you. We would love to hear from you.
