Guest Posting

Change in Policy on Guest Posting:

If you are looking to place links, this is a paid service, please contact my agent, Crystal at , she will negotiate terms and arrange for payment.

If you are a fellow PF (Personal Finance) Blogger and would like to submit a guest post please send me a note by adding a comment here. It’s a great way to show your writing to some new readers. Even if you are not a blogger, I’ve hosted posts from readers who just had an urge to write and share some great ideas. It will be great to hear from you.

Criteria –

If you are a fellow blogger, just give the link to your site and I’ll take a peek.

If you don’t blog but wish to write, an example of your work elsewhere is a requirement.

If you write a long generic request with no details requested above, you’re not going to get a response. To be clear, if no link to example writing is included, I will not reply. For example – “I am a financial blogger with in-depth knowledge on core financial topics like Debt, credit, mortgage, insurance, investment and so on. While going through different blogs, I happened to hit upon your blog and I loved the structure and the content of the same. I would be highly obliged if you would grant me the permission to write an article for your blog and be an active contributor.” – Really? Did you read the above? I guess not.

Articles should be 400-600 words, appeal to my readership, and contain one public domain image applicable to the article.


Note – I’m hosting guest posts most Mondays now. I’m booked up a couple weeks out. I’d love to keep this up, getting guest posts scheduled in advance.

    Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that you did a great job on the wordpress lessons PDF. I appreciate it, because I also prefer to print out the docs so I can take notes. I like your blog and will be in touch. Possibly submit an article for you to publish.

    Thanks again

    Hi Joe,
    I hope you don’t mind me asking this question.
    I still have about $38K mortgage in my primary residence (FMV is $330K). I am thinking about cashout refi option… to borrow $238K and use $200K to buy another rental property (pay off). Using the cashflow generated from the rental property, I can pay down on my new loan. Since I do not know much about the complication of the tax involved, I am not sure is this a good idea. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

    The issue as I see it is that if you treat the mortgage interest as a Schedule A deduction you may lose most of the potential benefit as you first need to exceed the standard deduction. I’d keep careful records and treat it as interest on Schedule E. It will then offset any income from the property.

    Landlording is a job in itself. Some are good at it, it wasn’t for me.

    I dig your blog, I too am a father of a beautiful daughter and am passionate about the pursuit of financial independence. I have never met anyone who has aced the math portion of the SAT, that is remarkable. Anyway, just wanted to make a connection to a fellow blogger and plan on following your posts,

    Aloha Joe,

    I’m a fan of yours and I do love to write. Not sure if I could contribute a guest post, but could you please take a peek at my website and see if you think I could do a guest post?

    Or, better yet, would you be willing to do a guest post for me?

    Mahalo in advance,
