An Invitation – Write for WPMU, for $$$s, Exposure and FAME

As you might have noticed, we’ve been raising the bar here at WPMU of late.

We’re committed to bringing you the absolute best in WordPress tutorials, resources, reviews, news and interesting, topical articles.

And, well, we’d like to invite you to join us, and we’d like to make it more than worth your while too – please consider this your official invitation to become a writer at WPMU.


Here’s how it works:

  1. You submit a pitch to us (a title, summary, couple of paragraphs and some links to your other work)
  2. We’ll get back to you with a yay or nay
  3. If it’s good we’ll set you up as a Contributor, give you an editor and away you go
  4. When the piece is published we’ll swiftly PayPal you up to $500

Did I mention the up to $500 part :) Here’s the breakdown:

  • Great tutorial – $200
  • Premium article – $300
  • Truly epic post – up to $500

Examples of what these constitute here.

It’s our reckoning that a good writer can, amongst other things, easily put together two or three tutorials / premium pieces, and manage an epic post, in a week – so you could easily earn over $1000 / week writing here (and, needless to say, we’d feel compelled to offer you a full time job if you wanted it too :)

And that’s not all, the exposure that a successful gig at WPMU can get you is pretty amazing too. Ex writer Siobhan McKeown now works with Matt Mullenweg at Audrey Capital, Tom Ewer is going from strength to strength and of course our very own Sarah Gooding is partner in one of the best WordPress development agencies out there. Beat that!

Interested? You should be.

  1. Nice Article … And Compelling to inspire some high quality WordPress experts..

    Surely I am gonna submit my article soon….

    The opportunity that WMPU provides is better than anyone else in the industry…

  2. Thanks James, I think I will take you up on that offer. Tom Ewer talks about you guys a lot and I’ve read his stuff on here too. I’ll get cracking on that pitch then…

  3. Very enticing offer for sure. If we don’t have links to other WordPress related articles online but do have a good amount of experience with WordPress and with writing for the internet in general, would our application be seriously considered? In other words, are you looking more for WordPress techi’s or for writers who like using WordPress and are proficient in doing the necessary research?

    • Yes, that’d be absolutely fine, we’re looking at that range of post-beginner to advanced, so god experience with WordPress (and a willingness to get stuck in and learn) should make you more than qualified if you are also an excellent writer.
