Share Your Expertise on EE Insider

You might have noticed over the last couple of months that we’ve published several new feature articles. This is thanks to a group of EE professionals who had great article ideas and were willing to contribute those to the community.

As part of my goal of making the site even more useful, I’m re-investing some of the ad revenue into full-length original how-to articles. But I’m looking for more ideas and articles. Do you have one?

What it takes

If you think you have an article you’d like to contribute to EE Insider, please get in touch ( and include a short (one paragraph) description of the article idea. There are some rules: the article should not have been previously published and should be something that is general enough to appeal to more than just you and your cat (or dog, if you prefer) or that one client site you built last year. At this time, articles can cover both EE 1.6 and EE 2.

For examples of good articles, just read the archives.

After selection, articles will be taken through a editorial process starting with a first draft. I (Ryan) will act as the editor. If your article idea is picked, you’ll get more details on the editorial process.

Small Token of Thanks

If your article idea is selected and published, you will receive a $100 thank-you gift for sharing your expertise with the community. I realize that this won’t pay for all of the time and effort you put into the article, but I hope you find this small gesture helpful.

Additionally, you will have a permanent bio on the site on our Contributors page.

So, have a great article idea? Send it in!
