The Nerd’s Eye View blog does accept guest posts from time to time. Because this blog is intended specifically for financial planners, guest post content should pertain directly to the issues and challenges faced by advisors, and/or provide advanced education on a technical topic pertinent to practitioners. Because of these content requirements, Nerd’s Eye View typically only accepts guest posts from fellow financial planning practitioners, or consultants who work directly with advisors on a full-time basis.
For those who are interested in submitting a guest post, please email a draft copy of the actual article to GuestPost@Kitces.com. Guest post topic suggestions without the actual article may be considered, but are unlikely to be accepted without a copy of the content itself to verify the relevance and appropriateness of the content for the Nerd’s Eye View readership. Guest post submissions may be original content, or an article that has previously been published elsewhere (assuming you as the author retain the copyright to republish the content), but should be substantive in length and present a thorough treatment of their topic; short articles that lack true subject matter depth will not be accepted, and the typical guest post is 2,000 – 4,000 words.
Nerd’s Eye View does not pay for guest post content, nor will the blog accept payment for articles to be posted (i.e., no “paid links” articles). Content will be selected solely on the basis of content merit. Articles that are included for publication on Nerd’s Eye View will include full attribution to the original author, including a picture (if desired), links to the original location it was posted (if relevant), and links to the author’s business and social media pages (as requested). Any links embedded in the original article will remain intact as well, though any affiliate links may be removed at the discretion of the publisher.
