Guest posts on your blog offer many advantages. As you know (…and probably have heard a gigillion times) content, content, content.
Being successful at blogging requires a steady stream of fresh, engaging content. The more the better but usually once a week is the absolute minimum. Two years ago for instance, we were posting 3 posts a week on SEOe.
But building that content takes time – time to research, time to write, time to edit and time to manage comments and so on. With only so many hours in the day, it may seem daunting and maybe even impossible to write enough posts readers find engaging and informative.
If I had a nickel for every blog that gets started and putters out, I could retire to a life of leisure tomorrow.
Unfortunately though, many blog owners and small businesses find it very challenging to maintain a flow of consistent copy.
MyBlogGuest.com is a service where you can connect with other bloggers and find great guest material
Guest posting has several benefits for both blog owners and blog writers.
One benefit for you – the blog owner – is that you can maintain steady flow of content much easier. For example, if you’re too busy to write something from scratch yourself, find an article on MyBlogGuest.com to use.
Two ways blog owners can get material for their blog
One is to find articles authors have already posted on the site. There’s a wide range of topics available.
The other is to find authors in your niche and contact them directly.
Of course, guest posts benefit the blog owner by widening the audience. If you have a guest posting something on your blog, their readers are naturally going to be interested. And don’t forget the opportunities for networking and getting a fresh new perspective from others in your field.
For writers, guest blogging helps build their brand, reach new audiences and build links to their site(s).
To get more benefit from MyBlogGuest.com, you should write two or three posts/articles and put them on the site for distribution. Someone will eventually pick them up and use them on their blog. Of course, they have to be members to do this and must follow strict guidelines for crediting the author and linking to their site.
Ann Smarty, creator of MyBlogGuest.com, has a tremendously powerful tool here. I look forward to using it and helping others use tools like this to help them build their blogs. Expect to see more guest posts (…perhaps one a month) here on SEOe going forward.
