Guest posting is a great way to promote and grow your blog. Websites are always looking for fresh content and love nothing better than good, free unique content. Glen Allsopp of ViperChill Viral Marketing is a great example of someone who's been able to build a very successful blog and a lot of "public success" by guest posting frequently on other websites. Glen was even able to earn 5 figures by guest blogging last year. So it's clear that guest posting can be a very effective strategy with lots of potential.
Also, we at WordStream frequently publish guest posts and have received some fantastic content from guest bloggers like Terry Van Horne of SEOPros and Blake Bowyer of EyeTraffic Media. So if you're interested in guest posting on WordStream, just shoot us an email.
That brings me to a great new opportunity for blog writers and publishers. Recently, Ann Smarty launched an awesome guest posting community, called My Blog Guest. Ann describes My Blog Guest as an exchange that "unites bloggers who are interested in connecting to other bloggers, journalists and other content creators in any niche and publish their high-quality articles on their blogs."
How does My Blog Guest work?
The concept is pretty simple:
- The author writes an article and shows it to the blogger
- The blogger decides if the article fits his blog and if yes, publishes it on the site.
- (Optionally) The blogger and the author may arrange that the author promotes (i.e. shares) his post once it is published (and thus drives more traffic to the blogger's site).
So if you haven't checked out My Blog Guest already, what are you waiting for? Anyone looking for unique content or guest posting opportunities should definitely join today.
