Write a Contribution Post for Canadian Budget Binder!

How to Prepare and Submit a Contribution Post to Canadian Budget Binder.

I am open to accepting Contribution Posts from fans or other  Personal Finance, Frugal or Food Blogs only. If you are a freelance writer don’t waste your time but most of all my time as time is money. However if you are still interested I’d be more than happy to email you my Media Kit with pricing for advertising.

I am looking for any personal stories you wish to write about revolving around the topics here at Canadian Budget Binder. I love to read and share budget success stories. The element of finance must be incorporated into your post as well as a personal aspect which speaks to the audience.

If you email me and don’t hear back that means I’m not interested so please don’t email me 100 times.

  1. If you email me with some generic email saying you have read my blog with a link to my blog= REJECTED
  2. A potential guest post MUST be approved with topic and title FIRST. Please don’t say you wrote a post for me and beg me to post it. Be a professional and contact me BEFORE.
  3. Write unique, professional, high-quality content that has not been published by you or anyone else on the internet, or media of the kind.
  4. Article must be laid out exactly like Canadian Budget Binder blog posts which are all standard for the most part. If you need a different layout please get it approved first.
  5. If you are sending me crap just to get a link it will be rejected. I spend hours on my posts so I expect high quality posts not something I can write in 10 minutes on my own.
  6. You MUST know what you are talking about because I will research the post. Don’t talk rubbish as it will end in the bin.
  7. Article length should be at least 900 words minimum up to 2000 words.
  8. Text Formatting: Structure your posts into paragraphs with headings and subtitles for easier reading preferably sent via email or note pad. Do not use word to format your guest post or it will be rejected.
  9. Submissions which require excessive editing WILL get rejected.
  10. Please do the best you can to make sure your post is grammatically correct and spell checked. If the post does not make sense to me, it gets deleted.
  11. Don’t add more than 1 relevant and informative link and one link back to your own personal blog. (No affiliate links, no sponsored posts, company or organization links are permitted so please don’t bother emailing me if you are using one the answer is “no”)
  12. Do not recommend products unless approved.
  13. If you submit a post with a link that is not working or relevant you risk your post being rejected.
  14. Please provide at least one photo and photo credit that you own the rights to, paid for or are permitted for a blog as royalty free. I will verify this.
  15. Article must reflect the flow of Canadian Budget Binder.
  16. Article must be Canadian Content ONLY or general in nature or I won’t even read it.
  17. Please send pictures as a jpeg attachment only but the guest post in an email or word document only and limit your photos to one or two.
  18. If you are using someone else’s figures or words you MUST quote them or that is plagiarism and I will NOT use your post ever.
  19. You MUST Share the post via social media once it goes live and respond to EVERY comment.
  20. Please include a short 50 word bio. Please include a link to your site or social media but not a million links… it’s not about link building it’s about sharing knowledge.
