Default Like Testing New Hardware & Software? Join the Thoughts Media Review Team!

Do you enjoy testing new hardware and software? Do you have a desire to share you opinions with others? Are you the person your friends ask for technology advice before they buy something new? If so, you might be just the type of person we're seeking for the Digital Media Thoughts review team. Moving forward in 2007, this site is going to be less of a "gadget news" site and more of a review and tutorial site focusing on creating, editing, and sharing digital media content. We're looking for people that are passionate about digital media to help us generate a steady stream of great reviews!

Being on the review team is a volunteer position, but hey, fame and glory last forever right? ;-) Reviewers will have the opportunity to try out the latest digital media software and hardware (some of which they'll get to keep), and be given an opportunity to share their findings with the greater community. Digital Media Thoughts is a professional publication with established copy editing and layout procedures, so if you're looking to gain experience as a writer, writing for us is good training.

In order to qualify for a position on the review team, we're asking those who are interested to write a sample review of a digital media software title or hardware accessory that they own. The review should be between 750 and 1500 words in length, should be of a current product that's available on the market today, and be based on the Thoughts Media Inc. review template (DOC|PDF). Reviews will be judged on the quality of writing (spelling, grammar, and terseness), the analytical skills of the reviewer, and the adherence to our template. While we have a talented copy editor to help polish up the reviews, you should submit a review that has been checked over several times for accurate spelling, grammar, working hyperlinks, and general layout. Sample reviews should be submitted as a single Word document with embedded images. Be sure to keep the original images in the event that your review is selected for publication (once graphics are embedded into a Word document, they lose quality when extracted).

The only expectation for being on the review team is that you write one review every 6-8 weeks. It's a volunteer position, but it's still important that everyone on the review team is productive and active. Obviously there are exceptions (illness, vacation, etc.) but if you want to have your work read by 10,000+ people a day, we need you to commit to writing a review every 6-8 weeks.

We will be accepting sample reviews up until February 21st, and by March 14th the new members of the Digital Media Thoughts review team will be announced on the site. Please submit your sample reviews to me via email. If you have any questions that might be relevant to other reviewers also knowing the answer, please ask them in this discussion thread. Otherwise, please send me an email, not a private message. Thank you, I look forward to seeing your reviews!
