submit ideas for guest written posts

If you'd like to submit a guest blog post, please read the guidelines below and then contact us with your post's details.

Unique And Original Posts

We do NOT accept duplicate articles or blogs as Google will penalise for this. We check every post to verify 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!

Please note: although the site is for people over 50s and into their retirement, we are focused on the fun element of retirement with all the exciting things to do. Please don't submit sombre ideas that may dampen our visitor's Glory Ride!

Basic Guest Post Guidelines

Please read the basics ...

  • Guest posts must use correct spellings and grammar.
  • Please break up the post with good keyworded headers.
  • First letter of the header words should be in capitals, like so: Use Capitals For Headers.
  • No self-promotion within the guest posts and definitely no affiliate links however relevant and definately no links to porn sites!
  • The iHubbub editorial team also reserve the right to make any changes to your guest post.
  • Submitting your guest post does not mean it will be published. We will contact you if when we have posted your article.
  • Try to keep your headlines as keyword focused as possible (we reserve the right to edit your title or headers.)
  • Use keywords that reflect what your article or post is about - eg: wild bucket list ideas
  • Do not use abbreviations or acronyms - with a few well-known exceptions such as SEO, PPC, ROI.
  • Do not use exclamation points. It is amazing how many posts we receive with over-active exclamations!
  • We will not publish posts with spammy links or anchor text.
  • Please do not include HTML links in your post. If you want to add an href link, please provide the link in brackets [www.example.com] [and the link text - eg my example text from the post] in another bracket right beside it - as we have shown here. We will do the linking.
  • Please make it clear which age group your ideas are for: 50+, 60+, 70+

Bio Guidelines

  1. Guest posts will receive an author link at the bottom of your article in the 2 to 3 lines of author information.
  2. You may mention your product or website – if relevant – within an article, but we will not publish any that reeks of being an advertorial for your product or service.
  3. The bio can be up to 100 words and include a link.
