Could you help with our site?
Please comsider buying something from:
You can bookmark these Amazon links, and then anything you buy after following the link will help us
If you've found something of use or interest, please bookmark it and if you think anyone else would appreciate knowing about it, tell them or post links to our articles.
The web works as much by people following useful links from others, as it does from search engines.
I know that the site gets a lot of visitors through the rumour pages, but in some ways I'd rather it were best known for the range of articles and reviews I've written...
|I've had several emails saying that some people would prefer to directly contribute to the site.
It's the equivalent of 'buying me a pint' as we'd say here in the UK.
Please ask questions - I don't mind...
Many of our articles have started from people writing in and asking questions.
If I find myself writing a reply of any length, this often serves as the basis for an article.
- That's me, to the right, testing a new paper, during my review of the Canon iPF6300 printer.
I do my best to answer all emails, but it does get a bit busy sometimes and I fear I may have let one or two get past me - if you use the contact form then it does not go via our usual filtering and I should get the email.
Things I should review?
All suggestions considered...
If you are or know someone at a manufacturer, then do let me know how/where best to get samples for review?
Site content is totally free, and as far as I'm concerned will always remain free!
We do have adverts on the site to help defray some of the costs of running it - if you are looking to buy something, then going via one of our adverts will make a small contribution to our costs.
It really does help, so thanks to anyone who has ever contributed in this way.
I've specifically decided that Northlight Images will not sell hardware or software directly.
When I'm personally looking for information about a product, knowing that someone is not directly selling it possibly inclines me to value the information a little bit more. Hopefully this policy earns the site a bit more trust from visitors.
Our reviews are somewhat longer than many articles that get called 'reviews' on other sites. I always try and write reviews that will also be helpful for people looking to use the product for real and learn more about the subject. All our current set of reviews are listed on the review page.
The site is maintained by myself and that puts a limit on redesigns and complex web design. If you've ideas for how to make the site look better (not using Flash BTW ;-) and easier to find things, then please feel free to let me know (NOTE - this is not an invitation to tender for web development work!)
As a result of recent discussions I've modified the top layout of articles to make the page table of contents and links elsewhere on the site a bit more consistent, and made it a bit more obvious where article content begins. Changes in site design are often minor, but can make a big difference to ease of use.
There is a limit in how many new articles and reviews I can add each month. We are in the process of adding good original content by other authors, and welcome contributions.
At the moment we can't pay for articles/reviews, but authors would retain copyright on their original material, with Northlight allowed to edit and publish content and images. Full credit, a brief bio and active links to your own web site/blog could be included. Articles would need to be of similar length to our normal ones and include good quality images (max. width 690 px) We could edit articles for style (i.e. UK English spellings)
If you're interested or even just curious, just ask...
Thanks for reading this, and I hope you continue to find items on the site of interest and use.
