Today, we’re excited to announce the start of our paid contributor blogging program. ServerlessOps will provide a platform for members of the AWS serverless community to contribute what they’ve learned to a broader audience. You don’t have to be an expert! All you need to do is learn something in the AWS serverless space, and write about it to help others along in their serverless journey.
Also, we said paid…. We’re offering $250 for publishing a blog post.
Help us to expand our already rich set of serverless blog posts:
- AWS Lambda & Serverless Development
- Static Websites On AWS S3 With Serverless Framework
- Serverless Framework Intro Project
- Serverless DevOps: What Do We Do When the Server Goes Away?
What We’re Looking For
We want blog posts that help people learn more about serverless, and demonstrate how they can solve their own problems. What has stumped you previously or even stumps you right now? Odds are, you’re not the only person who’s had the same questions.
We’re looking for tutorial style blogs related to AWS serverless of about 1500 words or more that are:
- Technical (not opinion)
- Thorough and detailed
- Include code examples / Diagrams / Graphs / etc
How The Program Works
Submit a topic proposal to us via the form at the end of this post. If we feel it’s a good fit, we’ll work with you to flesh out the details of the post.
Your proposal should include:
- Proposed title (which we might change)
- A description of the proposed blog’s content (about 100-200 words)
- Outline (if you have one)
- What the reader should get out of it (the most important)
Some things that also help the process are previous writing examples. We just want to get a feel for your writing style and voice. This makes the editing process go smoother.
There are any number of reasons you might want to contribute.
You might be interested in learning something new. One of the best ways to tell if you’ve learned something is to try and teach someone else. If you can explain it to somebody in a precise manner then congrats! You have definitely learned something new.
You may also want to contribute for your own career development. This is the perfect motivation to learn something new about a subject that you may not get to spend enough time on at work. Good blog posts on relevant and interesting technical topics are great resume and LinkedIn enhancements.
Lastly, we’ll be promoting your work across social media and our mailing list. This is a great way to build your reputation within the growing serverless community.
