What did I value most about The Billfold? It had a wide variety of topics on Personal Finance in a way that never felt prescriptive or preachy, and those came from a wide variety of perspectives.
I can’t say I’ve seen anywhere else that had a central theme of “There’s an infinite number of ways to ‘Do Money’ well, and here’s the ones that worked for individual people.”
And, of course, the community that sprung up in the comments section was wonderful. It’s truly a rare thing to see such a group of lightly-moderated Internetters treat each other so nicely, even when they disagree. And the gentle sense of good humor about things, and the support and advice, which never felt like “You Must Do This Or You Are A Moron” that is pervasive elsewhere.
Frankly, I’m not sure how to replicate it elsewhere, absent just openly re-directing TheBillfold URL to OMD (maybe with a note to incoming users), and simply putting Nicole in her “Old Job” of soliciting (and frequently writing) articles.
EDIT: I know TheBillfold and OhMyDollar aren’t the same thing, so maybe that’s why the Call for Articles just doesn’t really interest me. I can see that you are calling for articles for specific groups, which is cool, but I’m getting the impression that General Personal Finance is something of an afterthought. I rather liked The Billfold having a one-time call for articles for maybe a weeklong series, but filling the rest with more general-interest stuff. Maybe I’m reading too much into things… I dunno.
I can totally see the need for personal-finance information directed towards specific marginalized groups, but as somebody who really enjoyed being part of the Billfold community, I don’t feel like I’d have anything to contribute.
