Guests Welcome - Do You Want to Write a Guest Post?

Back in February I opened up some time for guest bloggers to contribute to Free Technology for Teachers. In a few weeks I hope to run a week of guest posts again. I'm going on a mountain biking vacation during the first week of July and would love to have some new voices share their advice and experiences here.

If you would like to be a guest blogger on Free Technology for Teachers during the week of July 1-7 here are the details on what I'm looking for:

1. I'm looking for people who have not written guest posts for me before. I want to give new people a chance to have their voices heard. 
2. I'm looking for people who are willing to share examples of how they have used technology in their schools as a teacher, teacher-librarian, media specialist, or administrator. 
3. I'm not looking for list style posts like this one, I've got that covered. 
4. If you're a paid representative of a company, thank you for your interest, but this is not an opportunity for you to promote your product or service. Click here if advertising is what you're after. 
5. People who can heed this advice from Darren Rowse about guest blogging.

What you can get out of this:
1. Exposure to an audience of more than 46,000 subscribers. Past guest bloggers have reported seeing significant upturns in visits to their blogs and or Twitter profiles after guest posting here. Even if you're just starting to blog or be active in social media, please don't let that discourage you.
2. My undying gratitude. 
3. If we meet up at a conference, I'll buy you the beverage of your choice.

If you've read all of the above information and are interested in guest posting, please complete the form below. I will close this form once I have filled all of the guest posting slots. I'm looking for 20-25 posts for the week. Last time I opened up to guest posts I had more than 50 submissions in 12 hours and took the form down after 24 hours. If the form is up, I'm still accepting submissions. Please don't email me with guest post proposals.

Update: I took down the form at 9am on June 16. There was a great response and today I am making contact with everyone who submitted a proposal.
