Looking for Pro Microsoft Bloggers

I am looking for pro Microsoft bloggers to actively blog (let’s say 5 items a week minimum is good as I’m hoping to get a few people in addition to myself) at a soon to be launched unofficial pro Microsoft blog. Now, before we go too far, let me define what I mean by pro. By pro, I simply mean that I want someone who likes Microsoft and who wants them to do well. But, not someone who agrees with everything they do, neccessarily – simply someone who has a predisposition to want them to do well and to like them, rather than someone who has a predisposition to simply hate them and wait for them to fail so they can play Nelson Muntz and go “ha ha.” Basically, I want all stories covered from the perspective of someone who likes Microsoft. This includes stories that portray Microsoft in a good light and stories that (potentially) portray them in a bad light.

There is no monetary compensation for this position. You will be allowed a link on your profile and a full fledged bio that can feature links to your sites, etc. There may also be other perks over time, but who knows… can’t guarantee anything. Your entries must be exclusive to the blog and you will be subject to a set of straightforward blogger guidelines. I expect you have to have a firm grasp of the English language (as it is used in the USA) and be able to clearly communicate. My sites are also family friendly (with tough comment guidelines). You will have input in various blog related matters, from what Microsoft blogs we should link to to other things. As I said earlier, I am thinking of a 5 item a week minimum, so it’s not too time consuming, in all honesty. And if you’re already reading some Microsoft blogs or Microsoft related blogs or are following them at all, it’ll be even less so.

I am excited about this site and am looking forward to getting going. It’s very close to being ready.
