3 Ways to Become a Guest Blogger

Posted in Blogging By danny

Blogging is all the rave these days, but when you don’t have your own blog and aren’t quite ready for the challenge of building a loyal following, or already own a blog, want some more street credibility and build your personal branding, guest blogging is a great way to network, demonstrate your ability to create valuable content, and increase visibility for your associated blogs or businesses.

Getting Attention

Here are 3 ways to become a guest blogger:

1. Join networking sites like MyBlogGuest

Sites like MyBlogGuest allow you to connect with blogs and bloggers who are actively looking for new writers to provide quality content, so if you can write about specific topics well, you’ll find yourself writing guest posts for more blogs than you can handle.

2. Find blogs you love and email them directly

While not all blogs take guest contributions, if you have the credentials to support your writings and can provide a really well thought out and researched piece, you will quickly see your pieces of work published on some of the blogs you respect the most. Of course, if you have relationships with the writers, that will make the process of being accepted as a guest blogger a lot easier.

3. Offer yourself up on your blog

Perhaps in your byline, or as one of the main links in your top navigation, you can offer yourself up for guest contributions anywhere that’s applicable. Sure, by encouraging people to contact you, you may get a bit of spam, and a lot of annoying requests that you would rather not fulfill, but every once and a while, a blog will find you that will want you to write with them, minimizing the work you have to do in sourcing blogs that would be willing to publish your writings.

There are a lot of blogs that are always open to guest bloggers. It's usually a link or a Page on their blog that invites people to guest blog, and they have their own guidelines and recommendations.

Also, using pages like Squidoo or Hubpages can build your credibility if you don't already have a blog. Blog hosts can read your articles there and judge for themselves if you're the quality content they want to host on their own blogs. Often enough, if you've really put some thought and effort (and research!) into your articles, you'll find yourself with an invitation or acceptance of your query to be a blog guest poster.
