Your name and 3-5 sentences about who you are and what you do. Honestly, just use 3-5 sentences to describe yourself. We’re after the quality of your work, not self-promotion. Mention when you would be able to start and what kind of schedule you can commit to. Two posts a day? Twelve posts a day? Include a link to any samples of your work. Tech writing preferred but not a requirement. If you have a passion for tech and writing, merging the two is easy. Two – three sample posts are all that in necessary written in PhoneDog style.
