We’re always looking for good writers at Baeldung.

1. About the Site

Baeldung is a technical site focused on the Java ecosystem, with a reach of about 2.5 M page views per month.

We publish tutorials and how-to articles – with a strong focus on practical, ready-to-run code.

As a new author, you should already have experience with the technology you’d like to cover and focus on, as well as good command of the English language.

Finally – previous writing experience is, of course, a plus, but not a requirement.

2. Getting Published

As a new author, you’ll go through a quick onboarding process and start working with one of our editors.

Simply put, your editor has the goal of helping you get your article over the finish line. They’re going to review your article and give you technical and language feedback.

A quick note about your publishing schedule – as an author you decide your own cadence and go as fast as you want to go. For example, we have great authors publishing 2-3 articles each week, and we have authors publishing 1 article every 3 weeks.

3. Attribution

Before moving on to budgets, here are the two ways you can publish on the site:

  • A guest post with a full author profile – publishing under your own name (non-paid engagement)
  • As a paid author, publishing under the generic baeldung user

While more authors chose the paid engagement, there are certainly advantages to publishing under your own name:

Yes, Tim got the job 🙂

And, if you’re curious – here’s our list of authors.

4. Budgets

Here are the typical budgets used by most authors:

Level 3 – some editorial work needed: 

  • 750+ words – 45$
  • 1000+ words – 50$
  • 1250+ words – 55$
  • 1500+ words – 60$

Level 4 – almost no editorial work needed: 

  • 750+ words – 50$
  • 1000+ words – 55$
  • 1250+ words – 60$
  • 1500+ words – 65$

Level 5 – no editorial work needed: 

  • 750+ words – 55$
  • 1000+ words – 60$
  • 1250+ words – 65$
  • 1500+ words – 70$

We have Level 6, 7, 8 and 9 for more established authors, or simply for really good writers.

And we generally handle payments via Paypal, Skrill or upwork.com.

5. Core Values and Article Topics

There is a single core value you need to be aware of:

The article needs to be practical and focused on a code (good code samples are absolutely essential).

Finally – here are the main themes/areas for articles:

  • Core Java, Kotlin
  • Core Spring, Spring Boot, Spring MVC, REST
  • Spring Security
  • Java Persistence (Hibernate, JPA, etc)
  • Java Marshalling (Jackson, Gson, XStream, etc)
  • Java Libraries – Guava, Hamcrest, JUnit, Mockito, Maven, Gradle, HttpClient, Vavr, RxJava, Apache Commons, and so on…

Generally, once you pick one or two of these areas, we’ll select new topics out of the topics pool.

Some authors like to suggest their own topics – which works just as well.

6. The Guidelines

Here are the Formatting, Code, and Writing guidelines:

7. First Step – Get In Touch

Here’s how you start:

1. Introduce yourself (contact me)

2. You will receive a Contributor account on the site (meaning that you’ll be able to write but not publish)

3. When the article and code are done, you’ll submit your draft and Pull Request and let your editor know that everything’s ready to be reviewed

4. Your editor will review the PR and the draft and send you detailed feedback, in video form (usually 5-minute screencast)

5. After integrating the feedback, we hit Publish
