Guest Blogging Opportunities
Guest blogging….one of those often forgotten aspects of helping your blog move up the ladder. If you’re looking for guest blogging opportunities I have some good news for you.
Almost every blogger I have met loves the opportunity to guest blog or have someone guest blog on their own site.
But, what is the best way to go about approaching another blogger and seek an opportunity to guest blog? It’s relatively easy but there are some tips that can help you to succeed as a blogger.
Here are a few tips I hope will help!
Tips To Successful Guest Blogging
1 When approaching another blogger always be courteous and don’t throw your link at them just hoping for the best. Let them know who you are, what you’re about and that you would love the opportunity to be a guest blogger on their website.
2 Personally, I wouldn’t try to guest blog until your website has a decent amount of blogs on it. Many bloggers take a lot of pride it their work and view more inexperienced bloggers as those who are looking to just get views on a new blog. I would have at least 30 blogs on your website before trying to guest blog.
3 Try and stay away from the big dogs meaning those who rank high on the search engines. Reason being they may not be as welcoming to you and you may not get a response. Focus on building your website and guest blogging on the less popular sites. Your response will be better from bloggers who are looking for more traffic and are in the building stage themselves.
4 Act professional! I can’t stress this enough! As your blog builds over time it will be something you can be proud of so be professional not only on your blog but to those you are seeking blogging opportunities from.
5 Be patient yet persistent! Not all bloggers will welcome you when you ask to guest blog. It’s just the way the online world works when it comes to guest blogging. But if keep trying eventually you will gain authority in your niche and blogging will come much easier. In fact some may ask you to guest blog on their website!
Never Give Up!
Above are just a few tips I hope will be helpful to you as you continue on your blogging journey. While some blog to just pass the time there are others who blog for an income.
My message to those who blog for an income is to be patient and be courteous of other bloggers. If your inquiry is ignored move on and don’t follow up with a response keep trying.
And keep building up your blog website! That is what will bring you the most success and enjoyment. Explore new avenues to promote your blog and find new ways to create readable content.
Have Fun As A Guest Blogger!
The beauty of blogging is you can do this on your own terms, learn as you go and connect with other bloggers. The most important thing while guest blog opportunities are great, is building a high quality blog site. It’s the most rewarding experience you can have as a blogger!
