Introducing Regular Guest Posts

Guest Posting
Since publishing a post back in November offering guest posting opportunities, the response has been phenomenal. I've received hundreds of emails from people requesting to guest post on the blog and I want to take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to all those who have shown their interest.

Given this unexpected but wonderful response, I'm delighted to announce that I will be publishing a guest post every one to two weeks (depending on continued demand) along with my usual blog posts and featured articles. I'm really excited about this opportunity, not only to introduce you to other writers, but also to the fresh new content that they will bring to the blog.

You'll be able to easily distinguish these guest post from my normal posts by the graphic that is used above. I will be using this graphic on all guest posts in addition to adding a sentence at the beginning of each post which will introduce you to the author.

There are some guest posts that I'm particularly excited about, one being from a fellow blogger, friend and my co-administrator at Bloggers Network, Dawn Sievers, who has agreed to do a guest post on social media. Sorry Dawn if I've now put you on the spot but I truly believe, given your exceptional talent as a writer and your knowledge on social media, that your contribution will be hugely beneficial to my readers. Thank you so much for agreeing to do this Dawn, it's a real honour to have you write for us! You can view Dawn's exceptional writing skills on her Healing Morning blog at

Even though I've received an overwhelming response with regards to guest posting, there's always room for more. If you write business-related articles or articles on the topics of Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Blogging, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) or Search Engine Marketing (SEM), I would certainly like to hear from you. Just use the Contact tab above for more information, guidelines and to get in touch.

The next guest post will hopefully be on Tuesday by James Harper who has written a wonderful article on how loving your business can help turn it into a success. I will also be publishing a featured article later next week on why you should not trust any SEO company that can guarantee you a first page or top 10 ranking.

Until then, enjoy your day, have a wonderful weekend and thank you as always for the support you have given Derek's Home and Business Blog. Having this support makes the blog such a pleasure to run and to write for. Thank you again and to all those who have shown their interest in guest posting, please keep them requests coming :)

Until my next post, have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Okay, just got over here to investigate and I had to laugh! Yep, this guarantees that I'll write that post for you, Derek! Not that I was going to tank on you, of course, but this was just funny. I'm looking forward to doing it, as it will give me a chance to get back to some How To applications of writing that I hope people will enjoy. I appreciate the offer to guest post here and I also appreciate the confidence you have in my writing. :)

    1. You certainly cannot get out of it now Dawn, not that I had any doubts. One consolation is that you managed to get a great review and a link to your blog without even posting anything....not many people achieve this :)

      Seriously though, it's fantastic that you agreed to write a post for my blog as I've always been an admirer of your writing skills. I'm sure my readers will enjoy your post as much as I will.
