Our mission at Uncommon Dream is to encourage our readers to lead intentional lives and to follow their dreams. We post articles on a variety of topics that serve that purpose. Our emphasis is on minimalism and personal finance as we believe improvements in these areas can further almost any other goal.

Guest posts are accepted solely on the merit of the work and potential benefit to our readers.

The process for submitting a guest post for consideration is as follows:

The proposed article should be consistent with the mission of Uncommon Dream. Please take some time to review our prior articles to ensure your proposed article will be a good fit for our site.

We do not accept articles that have been published elsewhere on the internet. Once your article is published at Uncommon Dream, we ask that you do not subsequently publish it elsewhere on the internet. Duplicate content will not be posted or will be removed.
