IT Itch is on the look out for tech geeks with the ability to write great, engaging content about really nerdy topics like search engine optimisation, social media, web design & development, domain names, web hosting technology and internet security. These geeks must be great at producing content that everyone can understand, it must be fun and enjoyable to read and it must attract community interaction.
Ideally, these geeks should have experience participating in online communities such as tech forums and be well connected in the social media world. A large number of Twitter followers could be advantageous as this is our main platform for social interaction.
We are willing to give anyone a chance and aren’t interested in seeing a CV at all. Potential geeky bloggers will be judged entirely by submitting an original blog of at least 300 words on one of the topics mentioned above. The best blogs will be posted live on our website (ititch.com) and will be judged by these criteria:
- Community interaction – the number of Twitter tweets, Facebook likes and quality back-links that the post receives.
- The number of comments the blog post receives and the quality of these comments.
- The quality of writing – how well it explains difficult concepts, how much our staff like it and generally how cool it is.
- How it relates to the products/services on our website and how news worthy the post is.
We have both paid and unpaid internship positions available on a casual basis. Intern Bloggers get authorship credit and we will help them with authorship mark-up (people searching your name in Google will see a picture of you and a link to all your articles).
Please submit your original blog to us via the ‘Contact Us‘ page
We will send you an email notification if your article is good enough to publish on our website.
