I’m headed to a conference in Texas next week, so I could use a guest poster or two. If you’re interested in having a post here on Generation X Finance, contact me and let me know. The only requirements are that it should be a new post that you don’t currently have on your site, and be personal finance related in nature. You can reprint the piece on your own site, I just ask that you wait a month or two before doing so. I’d need any submissions by Tuesday evening.
