First, we’d like to apologize to all our readers for the relatively light week, it’s been a crazy 7 days for us. We’d also like to thank those who have already submitted complete applications. Don’t worry for those still thinking about it, there is no preference or penalty based on when you submit an application (we promise!). We’ll be accepting applications all day, until midnight tonight. If you missed application requirements here they are again:

How to Apply

Until 11:59pm tonight, we will be accepting applications to become the newest InvestorGeek. To apply:

  • Send your name, e-mail address, phone number, and blog URL if you have one, to contact {at} investorgeeks * com.
  • Include a brief summary (no more than 200 words) on why you want to be an InvestorGeek.
  • Also include hyperlinks to 2 articles you’ve written. (Please do not send us attachments!) One article should be about investing and one can be on a subject of your choice.

We’re looking for interesting, original content. It doesn’t need to be on a fancy site, it just needs to be good writing. Heck you could even save a Word doc as HTML for all we care. We’re not looking for graphic designers. The article on investing can cover any related subject including mutual funds, stocks, bonds, real estate, retirement accounts, etc. We’re hoping that your interest in the subject will shine through and that your writing will share with us something valuable, because that’s what this site is all about.

Note: We’re particularly interested in building our real estate and mutual fund sections!

When you’ll hear from us

Based on how many applications we get (we’ve already received almost 10!) we’ll review the applications and email the selected authors who will have to approve our member agreement. For more information, see our previous article on becoming an InvestorGeek.
