effective guest bloggerDo you want to increase your blog traffic and readership? Guest blogging simply means you submit a blog post at someone else’s blog or vise versa. One of the proven benefits of guest blogging is it can provide your readers a consistent number of post with different interesting views related to your niche.

Guest blogging therefore helps to attract more loyal visitors to your blog besides helping to establish your online brand in the niche market and lets you reach out to a bigger and wider audience with the purpose of promoting your online home based business or simply your blog.

Guest blogging can be a fun, fulfilling and lucrative but that’s only if you get the kind of online reception that inspires you to produce better work – and get rewarded for it.

Be an effective guest blogger with these tips:

Find the best blog for your interest and writing style.
The type of blog you write for matters, especially if you want to make some impact as a guest blogger. You can’t write for a tech-heavy blog if you’re not in on the industry and know nothing about gadgets and the technology, for example. Guest-blog for websites that offer topics that interest you and which you know something about.

Research can help.
You have to know your host before you come to party. What type of audience does the blog attract? What type of style is prevalent throughout? What types of comments are left by readers? Who are the other guest bloggers? Are there rules you have to follow? Knowing your host blog well will help you write articles that people will actually want to read.

Find your own voice.
Although you should try to ‘blend in’ to become part of the blog you’re writing for, you should be able to write using your own style. Be yourself while at the same time write according to the established style, culture and rhythm of the site.

Bloom where you are.
As a guest blogger, your role is to ensure that you add value to the site. You have a different skill, a different talent. Look for an aspect on the blog you’re writing for that you can fill or improve. If there’s a gap there that you can write about, your readers will be grateful for your writing.
