If you read big internet industry blogs like Search Engine Journal or PPC Hero, you’ll notice a lot of guest posting. The articles are high quality and inevitably contain a self-serving link or two. So how do you get high quality guest posts for your blog or the chance to write them for other blogs? Here’s my suggestion:
Started by Ann Smarty, MyBlogGuest is a “community of guest bloggers.” This community takes shape as a forum. Once you’ve registered (there is a free membership as well as a paid premium membership) you can browse through the different categories and threads. Most are blog owners soliciting guest posts or writers looking for guest post opportunities. The general topic area is usually included, so it’s easy to find a good fit.
By no means am I a power user. Actually, Ann might not even give me the title of Regular User. However, I have utilized the service both ways with great results. I needed a few posts to help me keep my blog going over a vacation and I easily got a couple quality posts. I also found a couple blog owners looking for content and was able to get some articles of my own out there.
The site is dead simple and it’s easy to make arrangements through private messages. You can even ask for some social media promotional love in the Help Needed thread (a big help if you don’t have thousands of friends and followers on every social media site). Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
