You should! If you accept guest posts on your blog, it is a great way to network, produce new friends, gain coverage for your very own blog and even better, help out a brand new blogger!
I know there is a great deal of discussion about exactly how guest posting is old. But could it be truly? I do not think so.
I have been getting a little bit more traffic to one of the blogs of mine, Party Ideas Buzz, and 1 of the items that will help me gain some much needed traction is taking guest articles.
Just this week I’d 2 new bloggers and small business owners to send me articles that I published on the blog of mine. They were both really interesting articles that benefited the people of mine while helping out another blogger.
In the opinion of mine, when a blog is launched by you and it starts getting a small amount of site traffic, accepting articles from other bloggers really helps build the blog of yours also. How?
The guest author of yours will share your blog in the social networks of theirs, thus your blog is getting more exposure.
You will get noticed as a person that will help other bloggers. While their blog receives some inbound links from yours, you will also gain backlinks and much more traffic as the link is shared by them to your blog with their network.
You will get video clips without needing to write it yourself.
You build up depth in the blog of yours by including even more variety and numerous viewpoints from various writers.
And also you get to help other more recent bloggers by offering them some space to express their creativity.
I accept guest posts on all of my blogs for every one of those reasons. And I have seen some increased visitors to them, just about on automatic pilot. http://www.apicolturacasini.com/ can find a great deal of new blogs launching every day, and one element that they still learn is usually to Google the phrases “submit a guest post” or “accepting guest posts.”
And in case you’re in a certain niche, and in case you are ready to accept the idea of allowing others to provide content for your blog, you’re starting a win-win for both yourself and also other bloggers.
The way to Accept Guest Posts
What I did was established a website specifically for folks to submit the articles of theirs. It lists what I’m looking for and specific criteria which should be met for each submission.
This’s the way the web page reads:
We are accepting guest posts for our blog. Before you submit your post:
Familiarize yourself with the blog of ours, its content as well as categories;
Posts has to be at the very least 400 words; Posts must be submitted as TEXT documents, please (*.txt);
Posts has to be grammatically correct and developed in ENGLISH;
Remember to include your full name and your blog or business title for the post byline; You may include 2 links directlyto your blog or store – providing they’re also related to this blog. Just use common sense, kindly!
All posts will be by hand reviewed for content and also posted within twenty four to 48 hours. I reserve the correct to produce any kind of non-critical edits as needed (spelling, grammar, punctuation) before submitting and post in the group where article fits best.
You should definitely save this blog and check back regularly for new posts!
Although you are right here, browse through and leave comments on various other blog posts – as well as share this blog with your friends and readers also!
Submit your guest post using this type of form.
And then I add a contact form which allows for them to attach their article.
I don’t do guest publishing myself on various other blogs; when an original article is written by me, it is for my personal blog. But accepting guest posts will keep my blogs active and fresh without me having to produce each and every post!
