Get published by Linode.
Get paid. Earn $100 per article, if it is accepted for publication.
We're expanding the Linode Library, and we want you to help! If you like writing, teaching people how to use Linux, and money, we want to hear from you. The guidelines are below.
Submit your own topic, or choose from the list of open topics we want to add to the Linode Library:
Each article is worth $100 if it is accepted for publication.
These authors got their articles published and $100. You could be next.
We will pay you $100 per article that is accepted for publication, in cash via PayPal, or as Linode credit. Note that submitting an article is not a guarantee of publication. After you submit it, we will let you know if your article has been accepted.
Use the style guide. While you're writing, make sure your content is:
Want to make sure you don't waste time writing a long article we can't use? Submit a writing sample first, to librarysubmissions @ linode.com.
Submit your article to librarysubmissions @ linode.com as a plain text or reStructuredText file attachment. Writing samples are welcome as well.
Got images? Attach them as .png or .jpg files. If an image is over 650 pixels wide, please send both the original and a 650-pixel-wide version.
Once you've submitted your article, here's what you can expect:

Once your article is submitted, we'll let you know whether we can publish it. (You can submit a writing sample first to make sure you're on the right track.) Once it's live, you'll get the cash at your specified PayPal account, or as a credit on your Linode account. You'll also receive the authorship credit for the article with your name in the header.
