How Guest Bloggers Can Increase Added Value Content to Your Blog

Over the course of my blogging career I’ve met so many talented, wonderful bloggers.  I’ve met these women in various blog networks such as Blogcatalog;  business and mom forums;  through Entrecard dropping, Squidoo, eHow; and most recently through Twitter.

In the past, I’ve invited people to  Guest Post on Moomettesgram’s Musings.  I guest blog and contribute articles myself to Frugal WAHM Product Reviews, and Roxy’s Best of Hartford (CT).

I’ve decided that in 2009, I will again be inviting bloggers and writers to share their ideas and experiences with my readers who are interested in Working from Home.  It’s always nice to get a new, fresh perspective on the latest developments.  I’ve placed a tab at the top where all my Guest Blogger Posts will be able to be found quickly.

You may have seen Guest Bloggers posting on other blogs that you may often frequent. Guest experts are people who can provide relevant information to your readers in the form of guest posts. These are people who somehow tie in with your blog’s topic.

For instance, if you own an Internet marketing blog you might consider approaching people from those areas about submitting guest posts or becoming a regular guest expert on your blog.

Other areas where Guest Bloggers provide relevant information are:

  • Social Media Experts
  • Outsourcing Experts
  • Web Design Experts
  • Technical Experts
  • Working from Home Experts
  • Press Release Experts
  • Affiliate Marketing Experts

It’s easy to see the vast amount of topics people are blogging about today.  With the demise of print newspapers and columnists, bloggers will be filling a necessary void, and the list could grow expotentially.thinker2875307103_58930a114f_m

Once you invite someone to be a guest blogger on your blog, you could  set them up with their own login information or have them submit their posts directly to you so you can post them yourself.

Reward their efforts and give back something in return, as most guest bloggers aren’t paid for their posts. Oftentimes a Bio as well as a link back to the guest experts’ site and possibly allowing them to promote their own products or affiliates products within their post is all that’s needed.

Consequently, with the growth in popularity of guest bloggers, it’s becoming more difficult  to find people who will commit. If they’re good at what they do, they’ll be in demand and blogging on other sites as well as your own. Try to sweeten the pot a little to get them to stick around and continue posting.

There’s one more thing to keep in mind about guest bloggers that you may find helpful. If you know people who are just starting out they might be more receptive to signing on as a guest blogger than established bloggers or business owners. However, if you aren’t ranking extremely high in the search engines, your traffic numbers aren’t all that great or your blog ranking isn’t as high as you’d like it to be yet, don’t despair.  Many times it takes some  time to become established,  yet by adding all of this great content and implementing some new changes,  you’ll be there before can say “I’m on Page 1 of Google!

If you have a topic of interest that you’d like to share and be a Guest Blogger on Moomettesgram’s Musings, please contact me (see Contact tab above).

  1. Great post Cindi, lots of good information. A trend I have noticed lately is that some of the blogs I have been reading for a while (not in the WAHM market) are now filled ONLY with guest bloggers, the original bloggers NEVER post anymore. I like to read guest bloggers but I usually subscribe to a feed to read what the main blogger has to say.

  2. Hi Christie ~
    Yes, the ezine style blog is very popular and oftentimes produced by contributing writers. I still think that a first-person voice blog is beneficial. Everyone has a different experience to share and this is just another way of getting the word out!

    My next guest poster will be discussing Squidoo, I hope you’ll visit to see what she has to say!

  3. Cindi this is a very good idea guest bloggers. i have been thinking about have somebody on my site but my site is a general site. I really dont know if it would work there. Have a great one.

  4. Thanks so much for the tips. Guest bloggers are a wonderful idea! Thanks for participating in show off your blog Saturday. I really enjoyed reading your post and hope you join in again tomorrow!

    Sarah Berry’s last blog post..Aloha Friday!

  5. Thanks for the post. I have been considering doing this on my business blog but logistically don’t know how I would do it- do you just copy and paste from an email they send you or do you give them admin privileges?

    Melissa Multitasking Mama’s last blog post..Wifey Wednesday- How does he make you feel?

  6. Hi Melissa ~ I ask the Guests to email me with their post/banner & photo. It works out well & is a great opportunity ~ Thanks for commenting!

  7. Hi Christie ~ I haven’t noticed that trend, and plan on having Guest bloggers perhaps once every other week or monthly.

  8. Post comments on websites automatically using automated comments posting software. Get thousands of backlinks per day, increase your sales and earnings. Automated comments poster is the best way to build backlinks and promote websites automatically!

  9. Having a guest blogger is a very good idea. I will try having a guest blogger on my site hopefully soon.

  10. Inviting guest bloggers does not only provide relevant information but it also helps in mutually sharing beneficial information to promote your business plus the assurance of quality content. It is also important that a clear set of guidelines are set to avoid unnecessary confusion and disappointment.
