Guidelines for Guest Posts

by glenn

I have had many requests for guest posts on my website: FinanceJock.com. Some have been far removed from my field of personal finance & economics. I have decided to accept some guest posts so here are the guidelines:

1. I won’t accept guest posts from people selling products or services unrelated to my field. For example, if you sell medicine, cameras, hair products, exercise equipment, services unrelated to some aspect of finance, etc., don’t bother to respond.

2. Some items that would be acceptable are finance related services like insurance, taxes, credit cards, travel, energy saving, mortgages, personal finance related books, economics, etc. Look at the Table of Contents of my book “The Money Saving Wealth Building Guide for the New Economy,” shown on this website. Also check out my blogs here.

3. You need to have a substantial social media following on sites like Twitter and/or FaceBook. At this point I have no minimums, but more is better.

4. You receive no compensation.

5. You agree to mention your guest post multiple times on social media.

6. The post should be informative & not mainly promotional. You can put a short bio (25 words) & link to your site at the end of the post.

7. Length of about 500-1000 words. No offensive material.

8. Posting is entirely at my discretion & I will de-list any post found to abuse the guidelines or the educational intent of my blog.

9. You accept all liability for the content of your blog.

10. The posting should be yours & not copying someone else’s post. It also should be original & not having been previously published or posted.

11. Email me at dr.petry@financejock.com. You can send an idea or a complete blog. Do not send as an attachment as I don’t want to pick up viruses.

How to Get the Best Airfare Deals

by glenn

The best deals are going to occur on those flights with lots of unsold seats. On most travel sites, you can go through the booking process but not actually buy the ticket and see how many seats are still available. The lower prices are likely to start showing up about three to four months before departure on those empty planes. They may again occur 45-60 days in advance. If you book directly with the airline, you may be able to get a refund or a credit for the difference if ticket prices drop.
The worst prices often occur about 0-4 weeks before departure (and
sometimes earlier) during certain days of the week. The best chance of snaring a last minute fare is in competitive routes. Before playing the waiting game, always read more…
