Series on Recent College Graduates and Single Moms

By Erik Folgate

  • The great thing about blogs is that they are interactive. You get to voice your opinions to me about the articles that I write. I get to interact back and forth with readers and get to know what is most important to you. I think one of the greatest ways to learn is to learn from each other. I want to do a five part series on recent college graduates and a five part series on single moms. I will need five participants for each category. If you are interested, then please read below and submit your story to me via my Submissions Form.

    Recent College Graduates

    1. You must be less than three years removed from college graduation
    2. You must be willing to allow your first name, cityr, and state to be published on the Money Crasher’s blog.
    3. Basically, I am looking for some recent college grads that have a great story to tell about how they are working out of consumer and student loan debt or an incredible story about how they have already paid off their debt. I’m also interested in anyone who has a story about how he or she has started a business right out of school or landed the job of their dreams. Try to be specific about the amount of debt you have paid off, how long it has taken, and what you did to get it paid off. If you have any cool stories about creative ways that you earned money to pay off debt, I want to hear that too!
    4. Please try to keep your submissions between 200 to 400 words. If I select your submission, I will most likely email you back to ask you some further questions to be answered and published in the series.
    5. If you already write a blog, I will post one link to your blog at the end of the article. It MUST be a real, amateur blog. I will not link to anything that looks “spammy”.

    Single Moms

    1. You must be a single mom with at least one child that you support on a daily basis
    2. Must be willing to allow your first name, city, and state on the article that is posted on Money Crashers.
    3. I’m looking for success stories from single moms that are budgeting out one income while raising their kids. Be descriptive about what you do to make sure that all of the bills are paid, debt is being paid off, and you are saving for the future. I’m also looking for stories about single moms that started their own business and how they did it.
    4. Please try to keep your submissions between 200 to 400 words. If I select your submission, I will most likely email you back to ask you some further questions to be answered and published in the series.
    5. If you already write a blog, I will post one link to your blog at the end of the article. It MUST be a real, amateur blog. I will not link to anything that looks “spammy”.

    Depending on how many submissions I get for the series, I may not pick yours. Please don’t be upset if I don’t pick yours! I know that I have a couple hundred regulars that read this blog frequently. I am looking for your stories! Your story does not need to be extraordinary, it just needs to be real, honest, and interesting to others. I want to hear about your life and what you go through every day when it comes to managing your finances. Sometimes I feel like I am barking orders that a bunch of readers that I don’t even know! I want these series to be a tool for me to better understand you, the reader. Have some fun with it, and remember to make your submissions to my Submissions Form. Type “Blog Series Submission” in the subject field.
