8 Ways to Handle Guest Posts on Your Blog Like a Pro


Guest blogging for other blogs is a great way to expose your content and expertise to their audiences. It’s one of the best ways to get more exposure for your blog, and can help you establish yourself as an expert in your field. Of course, guest posts are a two-way street: you get exposure from the hosting blog’s audience, but you also need to give something back in return. Here are some guidelines for giving high-quality guest posts that will be an asset for any host blog.


* Do not self-promote too much! Guest bloggers should have interesting things to say about topics that are relevant to the hosting blog’s readership, not just about how awesome they are. Remember to include links to your site where appropriate and relevant, but do so sparingly; otherwise it might seem like you’re only linking them because they’re your own content! * Proofread! Give yourself plenty of time (or enlist some help) before submitting your post so that you don’t submit anything full of typos or grammatical errors.


Make sure everything looks right before sending it out into the world! * Include images if possible; they make posts look prettier, cleaner, and more readable.


Include captions with the photos if you can – again, this helps your posts read better and makes it easier for people to share them on social media. If you think pictures are vital to your point, add a link to a photo gallery at the end of your post with all of them included. Just be careful not to overwhelm visitors by posting too many pictures on one page! * Keep it short and sweet! Nobody wants to read 20 paragraphs about the same topic when all they wanted was a brief summary. Be concise, informative, and entertaining – those three things go hand-in-hand when it comes to writing excellent guest posts. Think of it as creating good bait for potential readers!
