Guidelines to Writing Articles
- Tell a story. It can be on anything regarding Mozilla or Open Web - but not a news-casting, nor a DIY/Tutorial.
- Make it interesting. Find the right tone, appropriate blend of statistics & narrative, frequency of humor/cultural-references & use them well.
- Make your parents understand. How your Grandma understands is way too boring for hyperactive tech-kids - resonate somewhere in-between.
- Text articles are just a part of it. You can make anything - from stick-figure comics to pod-casting - don't be afraid to be creative/imaginative.
- No personal promotions, please! If the audience likes your work, they'll look up for you - please don't post your blog/profile links 36 times in the content.
