Guest post by Blog Manager Robbi Hess
Guest blogging is a great way to spread the word about who you are and what you do. Guest blogging, though is an art. There is art to finding where to blog, art to crafting a query and an art to submitting your guest post in such a way as to make the blog owner happy to have you on board (think no typos, have links, follow their guidelines, and meet deadines, etc.)
Here are my top five tips for becoming a guest blogger that a blog owner will be happy to welcome back:
- Know the blog and its theme. Don’t offer to guest post about dogs to a cat-centric site. Also, don’t offer to guest post on a site that promotes Brand A when you are promoting Brand B. Read past posts. Read the comments on the blog. Know the types of topics that are typically covered. Search and see if there are guidelines you can read before you query.
Look at being a guest blogger the same way you look at being a guest of any kind – be thoughtful and courteous so you’ll be invited back! In case you’re wondering, BlogPaws is always seeking queries for guest blog posts, let me know in the comments if you’re interested and we can talk further!
