Not sure what you want to write? These tips help make a good TFD article:

  • 1. Don’t be afraid of honesty.

    Everyone has a story to tell about personal finance, whether it’s living with six figures of student debt or buying a home at 25. We want to hear what really happened, beyond the statistics and the generalized essays about millennials. The more you speak to the honesty of your experience, the better — you don’t have to sugarcoat your story here.

  • 2. Every point has a counterpoint.

    If someone has shared an opinion on TFD and you disagree, we always welcome a good response. As long as we’re respectful of each other, and accept that what is true for one person might not be for another, we want to hear every side of an argument.
