Guest Post Policy
We welcome guest posts! However, to be considered for publication, I do have some guidelines.
My blog audience are mainly high-income parents with large families who have an interest in personal finance, investing, and financial independence. My audience might be in healthcare, a lawyer, engineer, in senior management, or an entrepreneur. My audience is very busy between work and family duties at home. They’re often dropping kids off at day care, chauffeuring their kids to activities, all while maintaining their day job. They have money and want to invest it in a smart and simple way. They don’t mind spending money, but don’t want to waste their money, either.
What I’m Looking For
I do not publish “sponsored posts,” which are often written as a long-form advertisement or exist for the sole purpose of creating a valuable link to another site.
Also, I do not want content that has been previously published elsewhere.
A well-written guest post will have most of the following features:
- At least 1,000 words
- Unique perspectives on the topics featured here
- Personal stories
- No grammatical errors or profanity
- From someone familiar with my content and writing style.
- Is not a repeat of a topic that’s already been well covered on this site
- Images are your own or obtained from a legitimate royalty-free site (i.e. not Google Images)
- No plagiarized content
- Short paragraphs, and headings to break up the text
You do not have to be a blogger to guest post. Writing a post to share your story or ideas can be a wonderful creative outlet. You may eventually choose to start a blog of your own.
If you are a blogger and guest post with us, I will promote the post on social media. I also prefer to hear from bloggers who have blogging for longer than 6 months. That shows a level of commitment and makes it less likely I’ll have dead links in my guest posts to clean up in the future.
If you would like to submit a guest post, you can either send a completed post, or get in touch with me via e-mail and give me your top 3 ideas, and I’ll select my favorite. I cannot guarantee I’ll publish something until I’ve had a chance to read and review it.
Completed posts can be sent as an e-mail attachment in Word or Google Doc form (no .pages files, please). If you are a blogger and familiar with WordPress, I’m more than happy to take a formatted post via copy and paste from the Text tab of your WordPress editor. Just put that code right into the body of the email. No attachment required. This is actually my preferred method.
Thank you, and please reach out to me if you have any questions. You can easily reach me via email at email@example.com or via Twitter @finance4thefam
