Sherri Smith, the editor of Laptop Magazine, writes about how the publication is expanding.

Smith writes, “We’re expanding into new categories, including headphones, VPNs, virtual and augmented reality, PC and console gaming (yes, consoles!). Basically, anything that you can attach to your laptop or use to augment it in some way, we’re going there. But don’t worry, we’re not abandoning our bread and butter. Laptop Mag is still the number 1 destination for laptop reviews, face-offs, how-tos and deep dives. This is also still the place for Tech Support Showdown, Best and Worst Brands and Best and Worst Gaming Brands. And we’re working on other special reports that leverage our in-depth original reporting to help consumers.

“Laptop Mag is currently a scrappy team of five. Three members of the team are African American women and as I continue to grow into the massive shoes of this position, I’m looking to expand the ranks of my writers. I’m doing this in a number of ways. As we slowly emerge from this pandemic, I will be on the hunt for talented writers from all walks of life. Do you have a passion for tech and can you write about it in a friendly, yet authoritative fashion? Hit me up at sherri.smith@futurenet.com.

“I’m also dedicated to ramping up mentoring efforts in elementary and high schools with majority black and brown students. I’m also going to search for talent at local colleges. Hopefully, my journey will find me making my way back to my alma mater (Go Rutgers!). But no matter what, know that I’m looking for you because it’s my personal mission to make Laptop Mag the top-ranking tech site in the world. But I can’t do that without a diverse team of writers. So yeah, I’m here, whether it’s for freelance, a permanent position down the line, or just some advice about the industry, don’t be a stranger.”
