How to advertise your site on ThinkSaveRetire.com

If you are interested in advertising on ThinkSaveRetire.com, please read this page before contacting me for rates or opportunities.  Note that this blog is a representation of my wife and I, and we will maintain this blog’s focus on personal finance and early retirement.

If you are interested in sponsored content…

As of 2017, I now accept sponsored posts. View this page for more details on sponsored content.

If you are interested in writing a guest post…

I do accept guest posts. However, unsolicited guest posts need to offer something truly unique. Something that my readers probably wouldn’t find on another blog. A few tips before contacting me:

  • You do NOT have to be a blogger to submit a guest post; however, writing samples are necessary
  • I like to publish interesting stories about how people have found happiness in non-traditional ways
  • The post cannot be published elsewhere; all guest posts are written for this blog only
  • Have a specific idea in mind, and make sure the idea is unique and approachable
  • I don’t care too much about post length, but aim for somewhere in the 1,000 to 1,500 word length
  • Forget those “10 ways to…” articles; I don’t accept those
  • I do allow a reasonable number of back links in guest posts, but generally not more than two or three

If you would like to contact me about writing a guest post, you may do so here. But before you do, check out this excellent post about how to pitch your guest post idea.
