We have built an automated VPS hosting review site and generate a lot of interesting data. We are looking for someone to write original articles about this data, and then, where appropriate, post those articles to our twitter account and industry forums like Web Hosting Talk and lowendtalk.com.

- posts about VPS hosting provider network throughput and latency (we'll give you the data and a few bullet points about how we gathered it and what it means and you'll go to town)
- posts that re-blog interesting articles from sites including low-end-talk and hacker news; articles like:
- "LowEndBox top Providers for Q4 of 2012"
- "Yes, you can run 18 static sites ona single VPS"
