  1. Design is a perfect industry when it comes to exploration of new ideas. As Instant shift doesn’t have requirements to post on their site as many other similar websites does, I can say that it is a great opportunity since they also add your bio and your blog’s link on your published articles. I would recommend this site as it will also market and increase traffic to your own blog.
