write for us

Are you a writer? Do you have great article ideas about personal finance, investing, being frugal, or starting a solo business? If so, then we'd love to hear from you!
Send us an email at info@retireby45.com with your article or idea. Here are some topic ideas:
  • Tips for retiring early
  • Best places to retire
  • How to create a budget
  • Ways to save money & reduce expenses
  • How to become a millionaire
  • Starting a small business or becoming a digital nomad
Here are our article guidelines:
  • Read the existing blog posts on Retire By 45 to help you write to our audience.
  • Suggested word count is usually ballpark of 800 - 1000 words, but shorter or longer is always fine as long as you feel you’ve kept the readers’ interest.
  • Write as you would write a letter to your best friend. If you like something, be detailed. If you are negative, be fair. Always begin from the ground up: who, what, where, why, when. Keep it accessible—don’t assume knowledge on the reader’s part. Don’t dumb it down—feel free to go in-depth—just define and explain as you go, and keep it fun or serious as appropriate.
  • Your personal photos are encouraged - at least 700px wide. You can also send videos or embed codes to videos you've uploaded to Youtube.
  • If you use 3rd party photos, make sure to use non-copyrighted images found through photo sharing sites like Flickr, Creative Commons or Wikimedia, and credit the photo like this: Photo: [name].
  • Include a brief, fun, third person bio (include email or web address, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram—we’ll link to you!).
