Guest Post Guidelines for Credit Knocks

Overview:

Over 100 million Americans have poor credit or no credit score, which often stops them from being able to buy a home or car, rent an apartment, or even get a cell phone!  

Creditknocks.com is a credit and personal finance site dedicated to helping Americans achieve their financial goals through credit improvement and financial literacy.  We do this by reviewing the best tools, companies, and strategies in the areas of: credit repair/improvement, getting out of debt, budgeting, and loans.

If you are an expert in one of these areas, we would love to invite you to submit a guest post to Credit Knocks for publishing on creditknocks.com.

Tone/Grammar

Write like you’re talking to a good friend, and feel free to break rules.  Start sentences with “But” or “And”. Write a couple words and skip a line.  You’re not submitting an English paper. 

Here's a great example from a guest post submitted by Jon Dulin:  6 Budget Fails and How to Avoid Them

Formatting

Please use bullet points & numbered lists as often as you can, and occasional bolding when it makes sense.  We also aim for pretty short paragraphs. Often after just 1-2 sentences, we’ll have a line break.

The goal is to create lots of white space and break up the text into manageable, bite-sized pieces readers see and instantly think, “that’s gonna be easy to read.”

Sample Bio with Link to Media

For example: 

“Chris is co-founder of Creditknocks.com, a site dedicated to helping people improve their credit and reach their financial goals.  He has been featured in Forbes, Yahoo Finance, and Kiplinger, and is a passionate advocate for financial literacy.  Chris lives in San Diego with his beautiful wife (that the entire family still wonders how he got to say yes), Brenda, and 'their' 3 daughters that look more like the neighbor than Chris. He drives an electric Prius that he had professionally  wrapped in Star Wars graphics. You can often identify him by his frequent spirited yelling of 'Cowabunga!' You can reach Chris on Twitter @mrchrishuntley.”
