Unique And Original is Key

We do NOT accept duplicate articles or blogs as Google penalises for this. We check every post to veriy that the piece has NOT been used anywhere else on the internet.

Please, please do NOT waste our time and yours by suggesting a piece that has already been used. It makes it harder for us to give you priority when we see another post suggestion coming from you because we know you have already submitted duplicate content!

Home Business Magazine Guest Writers

iHubbub is constantly on the look out for new articles about freelancing, running a business or starting up a new business, career specific topics in your field, working from home, tips for finding jobs, and many other topics related to freelancing and home based business development. Write a guest blog or regular column for iHubbub's home based working community

One of the ways to get recognized as an expert in your career field is to show others exactly what and how you do it. There is no better way than this to prove that you are good at what you do.

For example, if you are a graphic designer, your best bet would be to submit an article called “How I Designed a Logo for ABC Company from Start to Finish”.

Along with this article, the writer would submit pictures illustrating how they designed this specific logo, either through screenshots or through actual pictures.

Showing that you know how to work on a project is the best way to show potential hirers that you are the right freelancer for the job.

Or if you are a trainer or business coach your raft of stories, experiences and articles could get you recognised for new projects from home based business people who need a business coach.
