How’d You Like to Write for YNAB?

pencil-1YNAB wants to produce more content – can you help?

We’re looking for two writers to produce one blog post/article per week, each.

You’re a good candidate if:

1. You’re a hardcore YNABer. You live, breathe, and can write with authority on the 4 Rules (or, at least Rules 1-3 with an eye on how to arrive at Rule 4).

2. You’re willing and able to pepper your content with relevant personal context. We’re not saying you have to show your budget to the world, but personal experience brings real flavor to writing.

3. You can produce one article per week.

4. You’re able to come up with your own content ideas, but won’t be offended when we shoot some of them down. You also won’t mind when we ask you to revise a draft.

You don’t have to be a professional writer; you do have to impress us with your style and enthusiasm for the YNAB way.

You can’t be boring, but take it from me – you don’t want to say really outlandish things like I did here and here. :)

Your application is simple:

Write a post for the YNAB blog. You choose the subject and the length. Please submit it in plain text format (NO Microsoft Word, please) to mark@youneedabudget.com.

Hint: Probably not a bad idea to read back through some of my and Jesse’s posts to get a sense for what we feel is the appropriate subject matter, length, and style for the YNAB blog.

Contributors will be paid on a per article basis. We’ll determine rate based on experience.

I look forward to reading your application!

Application deadline is January 21.

    I just emailed you my sample article! Thank you for the opportunity!

    What are you going to do with the excess submissions? Will they make it onto the blog as “guest blogger” postings if they’re good enough? (I’m assuming you’d pay the writers for anything you actually post, of course).

    Mine has just been emailed to you! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Just to be clear, when you say “Plain text format” – that also means no HTML or anything like that = no bold, no italics, no bullet point lists, no links to earlier blog posts of yours and Jesse’s?
