Contribute to Theme Playground

We interrupt your regularly scheduled WordPress content for a message from your resident WordPress blogger.

Believe it or not, all of the blogging which has happened at Theme Playground so far has been done solely by me, Ryan Imel. But now I’m looking to bring a few wise WordPress minds into the fold here — do you have what it takes to write intelligently about this software?

What I’m looking for

I’d like to take the Theme Playground up a notch as well as maintain the posting frequency I’ve had the past month or two. It’s been great to see the explosive growth lately, and I think a lot of people are really looking for the kinds of things being published here.

What I’m looking for are a few minds interested in joining me in this little endeavor, to take a shot at writing blog posts, have a say in the new podcast, and maybe even lend a hand in some of the related projects I have running in the background right now.

While Theme Playground definitely leans toward catering to those who develop websites with WordPress, there is definitely room for content aimed toward those who use WordPress as well. In other words: WordPress developers wanted, but also those who are simply very familiar with the software.

What’s the benefit?

Glad you asked. Writing for a popular blog can have a number of benefits. If you’re looking to establish yourself as an experienced member of the WordPress community, writing for a popular WordPress blog will definitely help you out. What’s being built here is something I’m very proud of, and anyone getting involved at this stage will be — how do the kids say it — on the ground floor.

But I’m not a stranger to compensation. Of course any post offered to Theme Playground will be met with appropriate monetary compensation (read: mulah) since I wouldn’t want anyone’s wallets to suffer while they spend time here. Keep in mind, though, that I’m not interested in buying posts as much as I am forging some thoughtful relationships to improve the Playground. Rock on.

Sound up your alley?

If any of this sounds like something you’d be interested in, shoot me an email to ryan at this domain, or using the contact page. I’ll want to chat with you a bit on IM and discuss details, but really I’m interested in what you have to say. Get in touch with me, let’s talk.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
