Derek Jones
Thank you for visiting Derek's Home and Business Blog.

My name is Derek Jones and I have been an avid blogger for over twenty years writing articles on a wide variety of topics from business and marketing to technology.

As a blogger, I always appreciate feedback from my readers, so if you would like to contact me with your feedback, guest post or submit an article for review for inclusion on the blog, require a product/service review, want to advertise your products and/or services or have any questions, please feel free to or message me via Facebook or X/Twitter (Note: Due to a busy schedule, please allow 3-5 business days for a reply).

For further information about guest posting, article submissions, product/service reviews or advertising on the blog, please see the Guest Posting, Product/Service Reviews and Advertising sections below.

Achievements and Awards

Derek's Home and Business Blog has been featured on, spotlighted on Cision and been awarded the Featured Business Resource Award by ChooseWhat.

ChooseWhat are a business located in Austin, TX that provides comparisons and reviews of services that help small companies save money and operate more efficiently. The Featured Business Resource Award is an initiative by ChooseWhat that recognises and honours the most exceptional business resources.

This award, which is viewable on the sidebar, not only distinguishes my blog as a "Featured Business Resource", but also distinguishes it as a go-to source for information regarding entrepreneurship and business-related topics.

Bloggers Network

If you're a blog owner, I've setup a Facebook group for bloggers called the Bloggers Network. The Bloggers Network is a group for bloggers to network with each other. Advertise your blog, post your latest blog posts, plus discuss anything to do with blogging. You can access the group by visiting:

I've also setup a Facebook page to compliment the group. You can access this page by visiting:

You can also access the group and page by using the following custom links: (Group) (Page)

Please note: With the recent shutdown of Google+ for consumers and brands, the Bloggers Network community (in which we had over 50,000 members) is sadly no longer available. If you were a member of the community, please consider joining our Facebook group if you haven't already. This was a big loss, not only for the BN community, but for everyone who used this social media platform as an alternative to Facebook. Google+ will be missed, that's for sure!

Mirage Business Network

If you're a small business owner or affiliate marketer, I've created a new Facebook page called the Mirage Business Network. The Mirage Business Network is a page for business owners and affiliate marketers to network with each other. Advertise your business, post your latest offers, plus discuss anything to do with business. You can access the new page by visiting:
