    Wow. The post asked for NATIVE English speakers. And you get the 1st 2 replies. Heh. Well.

    I do USA English perfectly, so perfectly that I am often invited to write books on IT technologies (even selected over Russian whiz kids with better IT skills than mine).

    Over 10 years consulting on ERPs, enterprise security, clusters and load-balancing. 15 years of language and assimilation work (how do you think I get my stories as a journalist!). 20 years of reverse-engineering (love puzzles and patterns).

    Since I just registered to Avast blog (via WordPress), I’m sure you can get hold of me. Please do, if you really want native English speakers. I have a minor in journalism too. Public relations and psychology as well.

    Able to work on the cheap if I can do so remotely. Expat work can be so expensive, all that moving.

    Amazing! The things you have to do just for a comment. As far as speaking and writing English; I am an American, raised in the mid-west state of Illinois. Enunciation and predicate were the order of the day. Yes, I can write. But, it is not my first love. I do know a little about computers and the idea of blogging for you was a nice thought.

    I can’t believe how many people are applying in the “comments” section.

    The want native english writers but I also am betting that they want native english READERS too.

    Reading some of there these comments make me laugh.
    Native English speakers and IT experience was the request.
    All the other information was just a waste of time.
    If you want this job. Show some paper work.
    Post education certificates showing English grades.
    Show a letter from an IT position where you worked.
    In other words, shut up and give written proof.
    Sorry to be so blunt.

    Dear Avast blog,
    I’m from Australia and have been reading, living and breathing I.T for the past 10 years.

    I obtained a Certificate IV in Information Technology in 2011 (all high distinctions) and I received a score of 39/50 for English Literature in high school back in 2008.

    Currently I work at a help-desk where I’m required to document the solutions to problems that arise.

    I’d be interested in applying for this position but I don’t have any sample pieces to offer – If Avast is interested, I’m happy to write something fresh on a topic of their choice.

    Regards, Aaron
