Here are some qualities we’re looking for in writers:

  • Do you have an understanding of and passion for frugality, shopping, deal-hunting, couponing, technology, travel, personal finance, family, health & beauty, home decor, DIY, and/or fashion?

    I hope you are well. I’m a freelance writer and I wanted to pitch an article that I think would be a great fit for Fat Wallet.

    The article is called ‘Top Five Ways for Investors to Maximize Profit in 2014‘ and it considers which profit maximizing tips are the most beneficial. Taking into account recent developments in the real estate industry, such as increasing vacancy rates, the article offers advice on how to future-proof profits against potential losses as the economy continues to recover. The article is well referenced, approx. 850 words with a selection of images and there would be no charge to feature it onsite.

    Please let me know if you’d like to review the article and I can send it over. You can see examples of my work on my Google+ profile, which is linked on my Twitter profile. Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Kind regards,

    Ella Jameson

    I am chief writer for Canvashub & would like to contribute to your blog with some perceptive content that is in-sync with your overall theme. I assure the article would be of great value to your readers and will be totally original.

    Please tell me what you think of the proposition.

    Looking forward to hear from you soon.

    I would love to contribute a post to your blog. I’ve read your guidelines, and I’m good to go. Sort of. It seems there is no mention of how or where to submit a guest post. I’m sure you have an idea, it’s your site! Could you share the secret with me?
