Write a Guest Post for FlowingData

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

Early next month, I'm going to be traveling a bit. I'm headed back to California for about a week for some work-related stuff. Soon after, my wife and I will be celebrating our one-year anniversary on some tropical island where I will be basking in the glory of all-inclusive. The following week, I'll be at the International Summit for Community Wireless Networks.

I'm going to write posts in advance, but I'd also like to feature some high quality posts from FlowingData readers (like yourself) while I'm gone.

What I'm Looking For

I'm pretty open as long as it's within the scope of FlowingData, but here are some ideas I'm interested in finding:

  • Anecdotes on how you use data, statistics, or visualization to discover new things.
  • The design process (from data-culling to final product) from those who are working on or who have worked on data visualization projects.
  • Tips and tutorials on how to tackle certain types of data.

I'm not looking for heavy promotion of a product (although I don't mind if you mention it). I want to keep the focus on learning and not so much on buying. Also, I'm looking for original content only. I say this just because I want to stay legit with search engines, so please, no duplicate content.

Email Me Your Post

To submit a post, send it to me via email. Put "FlowingData Guest Post" in the subject line, and put your post in the actual email or a plain text file. No Microsoft Word documents, and if your post is already with HTML markup, all the better.

I'm not really sure how many posts to expect, but I'll use as many submissions as possible, if not all of them. My hope is that I'll be able to highlight some more flowing data and as well as help us all learn a thing or two. Looking forward to what you all have in store.
