You should! If you accept guest posts on the blog of yours, it is a good way to network, generate new friends, gain exposure for your own personal blog and even better, help out a new blogger!
I know there is a good deal of discussion about how guest posting is used. But could it be seriously? I do not think so.
I have been getting a bit more traffic to one of my blogs, Party Ideas Buzz, as well as one of the items that allows me gain some much needed traction is accepting guest articles.
Just this week I’d two new bloggers and small business owners to send me articles that I posted on my blog. They were both really interesting articles that benefited my people while helping out another blogger.
In the opinion of mine, when a blog is launched by you and it starts getting a small bit of traffic, accepting articles from various other bloggers really helps build the blog of yours as well. How?
The guest author of yours will share the blog of yours in their social networks, thus your blog is getting more exposure.
You will get noticed as somebody who will help other bloggers. While their blog will get a few backlinks from yours, you will also gain backlinks and much more traffic as they share the link to your blog with the network of theirs.
You get videos without needing to create it yourself.
You create depth in your blog by including extra variety and different viewpoints from numerous writers.
And also you get to assist various other more recent bloggers by giving them some space to express the creativity of theirs.
Guest posts on all of my blogs for every one of those reasons are accepted by me. And I’ve noticed some increased traffic to them, practically on automatic pilot. You’ll find plenty of new blogs launching every morning, and one factor that they continue to learn is to Google the terms “submit a guest post” or “accepting guest posts.”
And if you are in a specific niche, and if you are open to the concept of making it possible for people to provide content for the blog of yours, you’re starting a win win for both yourself and other bloggers.
How to Accept Guest Posts
What I did was established a page specifically for men and women to submit the articles of theirs. It lists what I am looking for and certain criteria that have to be met for each submission.
This’s the way the page reads:
We are accepting guest posts for the blog of ours. Before you submit your post:
Familiarize yourself with the blog of ours, its categories; as well as content
Posts needs to be no less than 400 words; Posts has to be submitted as TEXT files, do (*.txt);
Posts needs to be grammatically correct and penned in ENGLISH;
Remember to include your full name and the blog of yours or even small business identity for the post byline; You might include 2 links to your store or blog – as long as they are also relevant to this blog. Just use http://www.apicolturacasini.com/ , please!
All posts will be manually reviewed for content material and posted within 24 to forty eight hours. I reserve the right to make any non-critical edits as necessary (spelling, grammar, punctuation) before posting and post in the group where article fits best.
Make sure you bookmark this blog and check back regularly for new posts!
Although you are right here, browse through and leave comments on other blog posts – and share this blog with your friends and readers also!
Submit your guest post using this form.
And I then add a contact form that allows them to attach the article of theirs.
I do not do guest posting myself on various other blogs; when I write an initial article, it is for my own blog. But accepting guest posts keeps my blogs active and fresh without me having to create each and every post!
