Write For Us

Write for usAt RouterFreak.com you could say we are a bit obsessed with Networking. We are always looking for Network Engineers who love to write.

The best articles, we have learned, come from network engineers (in all levels of experience from Network Admins to CCIEs) with real-life experience who want to share what they’ve learned (sometimes in a hard way!) with others.

Got any tips or tricks related to network engineering?

Do you have a rant or rave about a particular technology in this field?

Each published article will receive a minimum of $50 USD in compensation. The number can go up in proportion to your network engineering skills and experience, as well as your writing skills. Get paid to write about your passion!

You don’t have to be an amazing writer (or else you’ll be too busy doing book tours and enjoying life on royalties by now), but you need to be able to write clearly and concisely, with a bit of your personality thrown in there, too.

  • Subject to review and approval.

While we wish we could offer more, at this stage the budget is limited and we like to attract passionate people looking for exposure in the industry.

I am reading my article about confederations on RouterFreak and just noticed such a positive comment from this year: "This article is incredibly well written that it’s easy for readers that are mildly experienced with confederations to understand. Thank you so much, Ingrid!" Then it came to my mind that few weeks back I was on a call with the customer and he asked - are you this Ingrid Belosa from RouterFreak who wrote a great article about route reflectors? I was so proud that moment that I have had an opportunity to write for you guys 🙂
