How to Contribute to iPhone Life magazine
and Blog at iPhoneLife.com
Our philosophy is that the most useful and interesting content comes from iOS users who want to share their knowledge with fellow users. That means our job at iPhone Life and iPhoneLife.com is to solicit great content, work with the author, and publish the result.
Since the launch of iPhone Life in the Fall of 2008, we have been fortunate to attract a wonderful team of volunteer magazine contributors and bloggers. Authors have included doctors, lawyers, students, a Rabbi, IT professionals, consultants, CEOs, a mayor, app developers, iPhone webmasters, professors, retirees, sales professionals, and more. The simple criteria for selecting print and online contibutions is that the material help others get more out of their device.
Contribute to the magazine
Join the iPhone Life Blog team
If you have a lot to share about your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then consider joining our blog team. Bloggers can post app or accessory reviews, opinion posts, how-to articles -- anything of interest to iOS users.
Blogging is much more straightforward than writing for the magazine. A number of people work on each magazine article during the edit and layout cycle. On the other hand, once we approve a blogger, the blogger just posts without intervention, and the blog appears on the homepage.
Bloggers should plan on making quality posts at least twice a month, though ideally more often. Bloggers represent the magazine, which means blogs must be well-written, topical, and mature. Bloggers can develop their own style or point of view, and even criticize if appropriate. Bloggers are iOS enthusiasts writing for iOS enthusiasts.
If you want to write or be a regular blogger or forum moderator (when we set the forum up), please fill out our blogger application form.

Be a Guest Blogger
Another great option is our guest blogger program for iPhone Life. Guest bloggers write a single blog post on their area of interest or expertise. This is a great option for those who are not able to commit to blogging regularly for us, or for those who are passionate about a specific subject.
