So... What Can I Write On Seedly?

Seedly is a platform for you to share your personal finance and money-related ideas, thoughts, and experiences.

So your Opinion could be in the form of:

  • A daily journal to keep yourself accountable for your finances/savings/investment habits
  • A personal experience you had on your personal finance/investing journey (the community is interested in both the good and bad!)
  • Alternative content which is personal finance-related (e.g. poems, comics, short stories, memes)
  • Commentary on personal finance-related news, studies, articles, books you've read
  • Detailed analysis of companies, stocks, or any financial instrument
  • Research pieces, investment frameworks, knowledge-heavy insights
  • Quick thoughts or a lengthy opinion about why something would or wouldn't work (e.g. fiscal policies, taxes, CPF)

The possibilities are endless.

Most importantly, it's YOUR opinion and perspective, so that means that your content doesn't have to go through the Seedly team at all.

Just write, publish, and you're all set.

P.S. even though your Seedly Opinions are yours, they should still adhere to our community guidelines.

How Do I Start Writing On Seedly?

Once you get access to this community feature, simply log in to your Seedly account and head over to the Seedly community feed.

Click on the "Post Opinion" button and you'll be greeted with a text editor that'll allow you to craft your Opinions.

Tag the relevant topic tags (eg. REITs, CPF, Investments) so that Seedly community members who are following that topic tag will see your Opinions in their feed. And remember to include an attractive cover image to attract readers — it could be as complex or as simple as you'd like.

4. Create quality content

The Seedly team regularly reviews Opinions published on the platform. From time to time, we might select those that meet our distribution standards and exhibit a high level of quality for additional distribution via Seedly's social media channels, newsletters, and more.

P.S. a wider distribution means a larger audience for your content.

How Do I Know If People Like My Opinions?

These will help you better understand what the Seedly community and your readers like.
