The feeling I get is that actually a lot of these magazines are a bit 
stretched for articles (as in they only just get enough), so they will 
probably consider any well-written article on a general FreeBSD topic. 
For an idea of what one UK magazine looks for though, here's their 
writing guidelines:

That was my original idea - people send in articles, someone proof-reads 
and edits them if necessary and then sends them off to relevant 
magazines with instructions to make cheques payable to the FreeBSD
