About.com Looking For Technology Guides

About.com is looking for a freelance technology guide to work from home.

The Computing/Gadgets Guide needs to be a journalist with published writing experience in the computing and/or technology area.Topics would cover things like how a particular technology works, specific product reviews, and step by step tutorials on performing specific tasks. You’ll also be responsible for a blog that showcases your unique writing style, a discussion forum where you act as community leader, and a bio page that highlights your professional and personal expertise.

All About.com Guides are considered freelancers, and you set your own hours--work when you want. Pay is based on page views; the more traffic you get, the more money you’ll make. All Guides in their first two years make a minimum of $675 a month, and the average Guide makes $1,000 a month.

There is a certain process to go through to become an about.com guide, and there are many different topics that guides are needed for from time to time--so it is a good idea to check the site frequently and see if there are any openings in areas that interest you.

Good Luck!
