Do you have some great PHP topics that you'd like to write about (and get paid for)? We're looking for high quality PHP articles to publish on PHPBuilder.com. If you're interested, send me a note at sclark at jupitermedia.com with your proposed article!
What kind of articles are you looking for? Trying to expand to new and different topics for advanced users, or simplified topics for new users? Tutorials or ideas on different approaches, or articles on best practices/system optimization etc?
i believe that you should master it well to start "teaching", but if they need "basics" articles, and you feel like you are a pedagogic genius and that you could explain how to write a custom function to a frog, then you should send them your article and they will evaluate it and maybe eventually it will be published and you will get ...bucks?
