Yes, you can submit a guest post. We’re always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea that will challenge our readers and move the finance community forward, we want to hear about it. Just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that’s related to personal finance.
Finance Blog has been around the block for a while, so we know how rewarding it is to see your work published. It’s also rewarding to write for us. Thousands of your peers (and potential employers, clients, or publishers) will read your work, and you’ll also learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas, about writing, and even about the topic you thought you already knew so well when you started.
What we’re looking for
You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your argument and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
Here are topics that we can publish:
- Personal Finance
- Saving Money
- Financial Independence
- Money Hacks
- Career Advice
- Investments & Stocks
- Making Money Online
- Debt Topics
- Student Loans
- Blogging Tips, SEO, Digital Marketing, IT
- Entrepreneurship/Small Businesses
- Lifestyle and Wellness
What we publish
We publish articles of anywhere between 600–2,500 words, depending on subject complexity. 1,500 words is about average. Articles may be casual in tone and content—great for less-intensive tutorials and posts—or rigorously structured and edited. All should be well-considered explorations of personal finance tips or advice.
How to submit (and what happens next)
Email us your submission. We prefer submissions as Google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft.
Here’s what happens after you hit Send:
- An editor will review your submission and determine whether it’s a potential fit. You will usually be fine, worst case is we will ask you to make some grammar or structural edits. If it is a good fit, the whole team will review and discuss it. This happens daily.
- We’ll schedule you for publication as soon as revisions are complete. We can’t give you a specific publication date until the article is almost ready to go live. If you want the post to go live quickly, you can pay for a small publishing fee.
