    Hi Sam,

    I can’t find any information on here about guest posting. Are you open to accepting guest posts? I work with Villanova University here in the US and I’d like to create a post for you about managing IT projects. If you’re open to the idea I can send it for your review.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    With gratitude,
    Joe

  • @Joe, I’m all for guest posts but only if they’re web project management related rather than IT. Tweet me on @thesambarnes and I’ll DM you my mail address if you want to send any through for review.
