Not even four years old, ShilpaAhuja.com gets more than 1.1 million pageviews every year, and built a domain authority of 58, comparable to any famous magazine – all without spending a single dollar on ads. We have published thousands of pages, and yet our team has to reject nearly all the requests for guest posts. Wanna know how to get published in our magazine? Here’s how!
Why is the SlubTeam so Small?
Brands email me daily requesting me to publish a guest article, but their articles get rejected nearly every time. And people ask me incessantly why we don’t have a bigger writing team.
Our acceptance rate (number of candidates who get selected compared to those who apply) is 9.3%, whereas our offer acceptance (number of candidates who accept our offer letter compared to the total number of candidates we offer a job to) rate is 86.7%.
The simple reason is that superior quality content is not easy to create. It takes patience, hard work. And for me, it’s more important to maintain our brand’s quality over publishing too many articles.
Our articles go through months of planning, days of discussion and at least 3 rounds of editing. Some articles have taken over 15 rounds of editing. Each word and image goes directly through me. Want more insight into how I select my content? Would you like to know how to get published in our magazine?

Shilpa Ahuja a designer and entrepreneur. She is the editor-in-chief of ShilpaAhuja.com, which she founded with the goal of inspiring confidence in the modern working woman through fashion.
Fashion has traditionally been for the rich, white, thin woman. That’s how it evolved over centuries and that’s how it’s been represented in fashion media. But Shilpa believes that with the changing role of women in the society, fashion has changed, too. She believes that fashion is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, color, body type and background. So she translates runway fashion into easy style advice that one can incorporate into their daily lives.
Shilpa’s work has been published in the University of Fashion blog and Jet Airways magazine. She is also an artist, illustrator and cartoonist. She is also the creator of Audrey O., a comic series that represents the lifestyle of millennial women. She enjoys creative writing and world travel. Her art has been exhibited at Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Aroma Hotel, Chandigarh and been published in Chandigarh Times.
Originally from Chandigarh, Shilpa also has a professional degree in architecture and has worked in interior project management. She is also the author of the book “Designing a Chinese Cultural Center in India”. Shilpa has a Masters in Design Studies degree from Harvard University.
