Who’s Your Favorite – Meet the Money Smart Life Writers

July 15, 2008

Welcome to the kick off of the writer auditions here at Money Smart Life!  As I mentioned last week, there will be several people auditioning for a writer’s spot on this site over the next few weeks.  I’ve gone through a careful interview process to choose three quality writers and am excited to introduce them to you!  Check out their profiles below.

Writer Profiles

Audition Process
As I already mentioned I want your opinion on the future of the site, so I’m going to be asking you for feedback on the candidates.  They’ve each written a series of articles that I’ll begin publishing today and I’m looking to you to help me choose your favorites.

In debating the best way to run the audition, I had considered publishing one article from each writer every day so you could compare all three at once.  The downside of this approach is that your feed reader and/or email inbox would suddenly be flooded with three times the articles you normally receive from Money Smart Life.

I know you’re busy and may not have time to read three posts daily so instead I’ll only publish one article a day. They writers are starting off by sharing a personal story about personal finance to help you get to know them a little better.

Reader Contest – Writer Feedback
To say thanks for your feedback on the writers, I’m running a contest where two readers who offer feedback will each win $50.  You can enter to win simply by giving me specific feedback on which writer you prefer and why.  The only way to enter is by sending your feedback directly to me with one of the two methods below:

I’ll randomly select two people who offer feedback to win the money.

Thank You
Thanks to Henry, Erik, & Connie for each writing a series of articles for the audition and thanks in advance to you for reading them and offering your feedback! I’m looking forward to the auditions and to hear what you think of the writers!  Stay tuned for their upcoming articles!

    Just an FYI, I think I will have to wait to here all three until I can send honest feedback.

    I just hired a writer and had a similar process although I just made the choice internally based on who has the best fit for the goals and needs of The Happy Rock.

    Good luck.
