Be My Guest
You may have often heard that guest posting is a great way to bring more readers to your blog. It's a tactic that can work well. As a guest blogger you can reach readers who might not have heard of your blog before. You can even venture off into topics that you might not normally cover on your own blog. Guest blogging is an effective way to hone your writing chops and to step out beyond your own blogging community to tap into a larger one.
Blog tours and guest promotional posts are standard procedure for many bloggers who have something they want to spread the word about. Many authors take advantage of guest blogging to pitch new book releases. You have probably even seen guest bloggers trying to draw attention to favorite charities and causes. When you've got something that you want to tell others about, you should take advantage of every outlet that is available to you.
Some of you may be too shy or uncertain of yourself to ask other bloggers if you can be a guest on their blogs. If what you've got to say is important enough to you then maybe it's time to step out of that comfort zone of your own blog and speak out on some other blogs. Now's your opportunity. There are blogs looking for your guest posts.
Guest posting opportunities await!
Tossing It Out -- This summer and into September I will be hosting guest bloggers during my Hijack This Blog! campaign. Click here for details. Click here for schedule and application.
Wrote By Rote -- I look for guest bloggers year round on my memoir blog that publishes every Saturday. Posts remain at the top of the page for an entire week to give your guest post maximum exposure. I'm interested in memoir writing or helpful articles about writing memoirs.
A Faraway View -- One of the most unique writing opportunities comes on my dream blog A Faraway View. This blog also publishes only once a week so posts stay current for the entire week following posting. Anything about dreams is welcomed. Topics that have yet to be covered are non-psychological dream interpretation, dreams as prophecy, and dreams as related to literature. Any other topics are certainly welcomed. Dream study is a fascinating field and it's fun to write about. Tell us about your dreams or dream experiences.
Blogging from A to Z Blog -- We are always receptive to guest posts on this blog you are visiting now. We are interested in all topics here. Priority is given to those who have been past A to Z participants, but anyone is welcomed as well. Posts can be about the A to Z Challenge, blogging, writing, or just about anything else you want to write about. Go to the "Contact Us" page by clicking the tab at the top of the page and send us an email or leave a comment on this post and we'll set you up.
Kid Lit Reviews -- Sue is having to take a blogging break due to health problems and she's looking for guest bloggers for a while. She could use some help or at least a word of encouragement. Go to her site for complete information.
So there you have it. Some great blogging opportunities are right there for you to step up and claim as your own. My Hijack This Blog! campaign has been a tremendous success so far with several bloggers trying guest posting for the first time. Try it--you'll have a good time and should make a few new blogging friends.
