I’ve found guest posting to be very useful – especially if it’s an exchange. It’s an opportunity for greatly expanding your audience.

I would add to your minimum requirements point: I run an edited site, so I run all posts, including guest posts, past my editor. While she is tough on me for both grammar and content, I ask her to only proof edit guest posts.

Great article!

Thanks Randy. I do the same thing – run my posts through my proof-reader/editor. She has a keen eye for typos and grammar errors. Too bad she doesn’t do my comments as well. ;-)

Thanks Randy, nice to hear you liked the article. Are you writing a lot of guest posts as well? If so, how do you choose the website?

Hi Paul,

That was a fantastic post. I publish over 10 guest posts every month. Replying each and every guest post inquiry and submission email is a hard job. I often wondered if there was a comprehensive guide on ‘how to write and submit a guest post’, my work would have reduced by 10 times. Now after I have read this post, I know what I am to do when I get next ‘guest post inquiry email’ … forward them this post’s link :)

Regards,
Aditya

Maybe you can work with a template for guest posts? I’ve found a nice one on http://www.uxbooth.com. The zip-file includes a html file with dummy text, already styled with css. You only need to copy/paste your text and include your images.

Cheers,

Thanks, I’m bookmarking this so when I have “that” article all ready to go, I’ll have just the right resource to complement it. ;-) (Sorry I didn’t know this, Hal, before you let me do a guest post here.)

I like Randy’s point also.

Not a problem Kissie. Just have a look at Guest posting on Weblog Redux
for extraordinarily simple guidelines. Key word guidelines.
