January 6, 2011 , ,

As a blogger you have decided to write your first guest post, “Wow” what a great idea, yes it is and I will agree with you that writing guest posts has its advantages and disadvantages. First thing is that you have to think about it and I surely hope you had? There is hundreds of reason why you should want to write guest post but it should all boil down to one simple reason and that is because you have something to offer so please stop think before you write don’t let yourself be embarrassed. Here are four valuable tips for writing Guest Posts. Read on.

(1) Choose the Right Blog

I bet you have never thought about this, it is important that you choose the right blog by doing so you are ensuring that your writing style fits in well with the blog that will host your Guest Post. When choosing a blog to submit your Guest Post you need to make sure that not just your writing style fits with the blog but also the audience of that blog. A word of caution remembers Quality not Quantity that matters this will make the difference between you post been accepted or rejected.

(2) Choose the Right Topic

This is another point to bear in mind, the topic you choose to write about must be one that you are comfortable with and knowledgeable about and most importantly one that fits within the Niche of that blog. If your topic is already been written about feel free to write on that topic as long as you can provide fresh ideas and information on that topic then that’s great or you need to pick a topic that has not yet been covered but fits well within the blogs’ niche never provide duplicated content.

(3) Choose the Right Niche

Just as how choosing the right topic is important so is choosing the right Niche, if your Niche is about Web design then stick to a blog that covers Website Design don’t go choosing a niche about Marketing when you have never written about it before. I am not trying to discourage you here feel free to write about it if you do you research and feel comfortable enough to do so.

(4) Choose Your Writing Style

This is a personal choice; your writing style comes from within you. The personal style you choose will make a big difference to the outcome of your article. Not because it is a Guest Post you are writing that doesn’t means your style of writing have to change no just remember you are born original so why change and become a copy.

Let’s Recap

Guest Blogging is a great way of showcasing yourself on the internet this can also helps to highlight your blog and drive enormous amount of traffic to your blog. It has great potential both for the owner and the writer. I am no expert here however from past experience and outcome I receive from writing Guest Posts I know that if you apply these four simple steps correctly your post won’t get rejected. Do you have guidelines set out for writing Guest Post? If so please feel free to add yours.

  14. Hi Gary

    I must be the exception to the rule lol All my guest posts have been outside my niche and other invitations I have had are also not in my niche. Doesn’t seem to many in my niche who have active blogs. Mainly farms with small farmshops selling their products. Have noted a new blog that has gone up that I hope to interact with.

    Cos the topics I chose relate to all bloggers, had an excellent response to my guest posts and brought lots of traffic to the blog owner’s sites. Because someone is a marketer, techie, or whatever they may still be interested in my take on a specific area of blogging I discuss in my GP. Just my 2 cents. And thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and join the conversation there. Much appreciated.

  17. Hi, Gary.

    I recently just started guest blogging and I admit, I didn’t exactly look into whether the blog I guest posted in was in line with my niche or not. This didn’t matter much to me because I talked to the blog owners about what the articles they’d prefer to receive before I sent in my guest post. I believe that even if a blog is not within your niche, you can still have something worthwhile to share to their audience. I do go for blogs that offer great influence to the blogging community and are receptive to the needs of fellow bloggers as well as their target audience.

    Finding the right blog, writing with your own personal style and knowing the right topic to talk or write about are great tips for guest blogging though. So, thanks for this post, Gary. I’m sure a lot of people will appreciate this as I did.
