About the OppLoans Blog

Produced for a consumer audience with short-term, unexpected, or immediate financial needs, the OppLoans Blog is approachable, helpful, and entertaining, providing basic insights to everyday financial challenges.

Editorial Policy

Our writing staff adheres to a strict editorial policy that values quality and accuracy above all else. Readers won’t find spammy articles or sales pitches in our content, and won’t come across links to other sites trying to loop them into scams or schemes. (That would be a conflict of interest — and we’re not interested in that.)

To ensure this, we’ve staffed our content team with experienced journalists, researchers, and copywriters who have extensive training covering consumer-driven topics both inside and outside of personal finance.

We always seek to supplement our research and content with perspectives from respected subject matter experts in the fields of personal finance, credit, lending, consumer behavior, and more. 

Subject matter experts also represent a range of professional sectors, including, but not limited to, higher education, research, government, and nonprofit organizations. While we will interview industry consultants from time to time, we do so selectively and solely quote them for their expertise. Advertorial language or advice promoting a specific type of consultancy service will not be published.

Except in rare circumstances, we refrain from linking to the following:

  • Competitor sites
  • Affiliate sites selling traffic to financial products
  • Marketing, PR, and communications professionals who lack relevant expertise.

Article Submissions

Writers with an interest in contributing content to the OppLoans Blog should review our editorial guidelines, which are available upon request, and include the following in their pitch: 

  • 2-5 sentences about the context of your article and how it relates to the credit- or budget-challenged consumer
  • How your article will differ from those already published on the OppLoans website/blog. (Please do your research). Is there a timely element to it? Has there been a shift in the marketplace that raises a need for us to cover a repeat topic again? 
  • A credible reference/source you plan to attribute (You don’t have to include all potential sources, but please provide an idea of how you plan to tackle the topic and who/what you plan to reference/approach.)

Pitches and editorial guideline requests may be sent to editors@opploans.com.
