Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of great, thought-provoking comments from readers. It’s a shame that such conversations are locked up in e-mail. You don’t need to be a great writer to participate. My lack of writing skills should has set the bar sufficiently low, so anyone can step right in. Of course I’ll give you full credit and if you are a blogger a link back to your site.
Why am I doing this?
- There are tons of great ideas out there and while I like to think I have them all (just kidding), the power of a group of readers can be stronger than just one.
- I have been the beneficiary of traffic from other bloggers offering a similar opportunity. I’d like to give back and allow up and coming blogs to tap into fresh audience.
- It fun for all!
What are the rules?
- It has to be about personal finance. If the topic is about pretty dolphins and not about money or finance, I’m sorry, I can’t publish it.
- If the article is about a commercial venture and it feels like you are using this for as marketing vehicle, I’ll probably not use your post. (However, if it’s a good venture that I think has value to the readers, I may blog about it myself at a future time.)
- You give me the universal latitude to decide to not use for any other reason at my sole discretion. I realize this may be a tough one, but I need to have this umbrella policy in case someone rights a really inappropriate post that falls within the other rules.
- It has to be an original article by the submitter.Â It also has to be previously unpublished.Â You’d all like to read something new and not a re-run from another site, right?
- You allow me the ability to be an editor to fix grammar and spelling as necessary. (I wish I had an editor when I was writing my own posts, so think of this as a very good thing.)
