9 Important Reasons You Should Offer Guest Blogging Opportunities

Offering guest blogging opportunities are important for content creators

Today is guest author Tuesday.

However, we don’t have a guest author today. Instead of a guest blogger, we have a post about guest blogging opportunities.

9 compelling reasons bloggers and other content creators should host guest authors on their websites are explained.

Shock!

Bloggers frequently express a disinterest in hosting guest bloggers.

When I started blogging, I was among them.

However, there are so many valuable reasons to host a guest blogger, that for the life of me, I can’t remember why.

9 important reasons to offer guest blogging opportunities:

  1. If they share the post on their site, you will get a link to your site. I suppose it’s always possible they will share the post on their site and not credit your site, but that would be plagiarism. The article belongs to you. If they copy it on their site without crediting the site where it was first published, it’s theft. If they link to you when they provide appropriate credit to your blog where the article first appeared, your Alexa score improves.
  2. If they share the post with their readers, you will get exposure to their readers. Reblogging is easy if you are not self-hosted. Bloggers have posted posts they’ve written for my site with the disclaimer, “This post first appeared on MostlyBlogging.com.”
  3. If they share the post with their social media, you will get exposure to new audiences. Many host bloggers require that the guest blogger shares the link to the article they’ve written on social media. Even if they don’t, it’s still good etiquette to do so.
  4. Guest authors provide a different voice for your readers. Just like a guest speaker provides a different voice for students, a guest author provides a different expertise and writing style for your readers. This makes you a more versatile blog administrator. It’s considered a strength to be versatile. Keep your readers’ interest with novelty. Caring bloggers host experts because it shows you care about empowering your readers.
  5. Hosting an author saves you precious time. It’s important to stick to your publication schedule, but it’s not important to be the only author your blog publishes. In the time that someone else is writing for your site, you could be researching, writing, promoting, or photographing for one of your blog posts, networking your blog, or spending much-needed quality time with your family.
  6. The comments on your post will increase by one-third. If your readers comment on the post, and your guest host responds to them, and you respond to the commenters, your comments have increased by 33.3%. According to the BandWagon Effect, more people will want to comment on your post than on a post that didn’t have this spike.
  7. Since the guest author is responding to your readers, your page views will be higher than usual as well. I make it clear when I host an author that I expect them to respond to the readers. It’s polite, and the readers may have questions the guest is more knowledgeable about answering.
  8. The guest author benefits when you host. You are giving another author exposure to your readers.
  9. Your connection to your guest author grows. I am much closer to people now than when I originally guest posted for them. Blogging is about making connections. Guest posting strengthens those bonds.

Testimonial

When blogging expert Jacob Cass was asked how he finds time to balance blogging and a personal life, he responded, “I only blog for about four hours a week, to be honest.  I have a lot of (guest) authors now.”

Where You Can Find Guest Bloggers

There are many places you can find people who would like to write for your blog and offer guest blogging opportunities on your site for other writers:

  • On your blog. At the end of my guest posts, I advertise for guest authors. I will write “MostlyBlogging is looking for guest authors.”
  • On Twitter. You can advertise for guest authors there. Use a hashtag like #blogging, so bloggers can find you.
  • On someone else’s blog. I have found many authors, knowledgeable about topics that could help my readers, on other blogs. I invite the author to guest post. If they agree, I send them the link with my criteria and the instructions for submission.
  • In the Daily Post Community Pool
  • In Facebook groups

Conclusion

In conclusion, put your expectations regarding responding to readers and sharing the post in a static page on your site. You are welcome to use or tweak my criteria for guest authors. In my criteria, you will see I ask for an original article. I don’t want to risk possible consequences over duplicate content.

Readers, please share so other bloggers know the nine advantages of hosting guest bloggers and why they should offer guest blogging opportunities on their websites.

Do you host guest bloggers? Would you recommend it? Can you think of any other reasons to host guest bloggers that I left out? If you don’t choose to host bloggers and have guest blogging opportunities on your site, can you explain why? I look forward to your views in the comment section.

  1. HI Janice great article. yes I am looking for people to guest post for me. Is the community pool for just wp.com and not self hosting websites? I like them but since I went on self hosting i did not think I belonged there and would to share. blessings

    • They are for anyone.
      Janice

    • oh that is great to know Janice anyone even self hosted can join in and comment and share oh I love knowin this.

      • Hi Janice,

        Great topic. I agree with every single point with you here.

        I used to accept a ton of guest posts on my site but I completely stopped for one reason: 99% of the people send me junk. They send worst email pitches without even mentioning my name and that’s what made me furious.

        But I agree that, it opens up doors to grow your traffic almost on autopilot. But you need to take care of the quality of the guest posts.

        Keep rocking.

        • Hi Anil,
          Thanks for commenting on my article. Most of the guest posts I’m sent have valuable tips. If people send me junk, I reject it. Usually, I’ve already approved the idea so I don’t get too much junk.
          Janice

  2. Hi Janice – thank you for this post. I just ♥ ♥ have a fellow blogger Guest post with me. I have now done this for a number of months, and have a Guest once a week. This is unbelievable the pleasure I get from doing and the value added to my blog. I hope to get even more in future. I have seen the benefit of all you discuss above.
    How about you do a guest post on my humble blog??

    • Hi Esme,
      I am flattered by your invitation. I am so busy with school, my own blog, and writing sponsored posts that pay the bills, I don’t know when I will have time. If time allows, I will definitely keep you in mind. Thanks for your comments and again for your invitation. In response to your comments– I agree. Guest authors are important for bloggers to utilize.
      Janice

      • Janice, if and when you have the time, this will be awesome but I understand your position. Thanks anyway for considering it as a possibility.

  3. Hi Janice,

    I’ve actually been contemplating whether or not to allow guest posts on my blog. I’ve had people email me and ask me if they could write a guest post for my blog. I’ve never even heard of them and they clearly haven’t read my site where I say that I don’t allow guest posts.

    I guess the reason that I haven’t allowed guest posting is that I make it a point to write great content.

    I know that some people would just want to guest post just for the backlink and wouldn’t really care about the quality of the content.

    I am sure that as my blog continues to grow, I will eventually allow it. Right now, I have over 30 posts scheduled and queued up and ready to post.

    However, you’re right, it would be nice to have more time to focus on other things. If and when I do allow guest posts, it will probably only be from bloggers that I know.

    This way I can ensure that the content I will receive will be high quality.

    How do you ensure that bloggers just don’t send you fluff articles? Have you ever turned down a guest poster because of the quality of their article.

    You’ve definitely got me thinking about how guest posting can help me with my blogging.

    Have a great day 🙂

    Susan

    • Hi Susan,
      I appreciate your comments.
      You asked: How do you ensure that bloggers just don’t send you fluff articles? Have you ever turned down a guest poster because of the quality of their article.

      Here are my answers:
      1. They send me pitches. I accept a pitch, so the article topic has already been approved before I get it.
      2. Have I ever turned down a guest poster due to the quality of the article?
      I did the day this was published!
      Why do you think there was no guest author on Guest Author Tuesday?
      I had the good fortune to Google the headline. It was already on the internet under someone else’s byline! The guest poster plagiarized! I would have published a plagiarized article.
      This article about why people should host guest authors sat on the shelf until I had an emergency like this one. Better use a shelf post than disrupt my queue.
      I’ve also rejected others as sounding too spammy. They usually fix it and then I publish it.
      Janice

  4. Hey Janice!

    Guest blogging is a very powerful method to building a successful blog online. Whether you are doing guest blogging to promote your blog or getting guest bloggers to blog on your blog.

    I do allow guest authors at my internet marketing blog. It helps my blog with new fresh content on a monthly basis. Of course, I do review everything and make sure the content shared is of high quality and informational to my readers.

    That is one thing you must make sure of. Make sure your guest bloggers are sharing the right type of content for your niche audience.

    I think every new blogger should use guest blogging for promotion and growth!

    Thanks for sharing! 😀

    CHeers!!

    • Hi Freddy,
      Thanks for adding to the conversation. I am glad you like my idea that bloggers should host guest authors.
      Janice

  5. Hi Janice,

    I agree with all the reasons you shared for offering guest post opportunities. I’ll be kicking off a second blog soon – I’ll be looking for guest bloggers to help share great content for both blogs so that I can focus on other aspects of my business like getting clients and connecting with other people. 🙂

    Thanks for putting this together! Passing this along for sure!

      Great to see you. Thanks for commenting on my article! Why are you starting a second blog?
      Janice

      • You’re welcome Janice!

        Well, I’ve had a web design and virtual service website but I wasn’t blogging. In turn, it wasn’t getting noticed.

        So, I decided to start blogging about blogging and other business-related topics and keep Not Now Mom’s Busy strictly work-from-home and mom related.

        Since I’ll have two blogs, I’ll need some guests to help me balance my time between writing and marketing to get clients. 🙂

  6. As a writer, I have run out of promo places to sell my books. I am trying to promote my brand as well. Like you mentioned, I don’t have time to blog excessively and promote and write. Do you feel guest blogging helps sell the host’s books as well? I noticed that as a guest blogger, I didn’t sell many books, or draw a large audience.I also noticed that my host didn’t have a lot of people attending the session and the ones I brought had already bought my book and many did not think to leave a comment saying so. I am also techno deficient so my blogging effort are simplistic. This post is fantastic!! Thanks!

    • Hi Micki,
      Thank you for your high praise of my article.
      I am not sure I understand your question so I will share both my experiences– as a host blogger and as a guest blogger.
      As a host blogger, I have had good experiences which is why I’m recommending other bloggers become hosts of guest bloggers.
      As a guest blogger myself, my experiences sound like yours if I am understanding you– hit and miss.
      I guest blogged for big bloggers. While the posts got engagement, I am not sure I received a lot of new subscribers as a result. I did get some but not the huge number I expected.
      You mentioned your ebook– when my ebook published, many bloggers interviewed me about my book and gave me the kind of exposure a guest blogger gets. However, I am not sure I sold a significant amount of books as a result.
      Janice

      • Hi Janice. Yes, you understood perfectly and my experiences were much like yours. I also found it the same way with blog talk radio. Since being a guest is more work than being a host–I think–I was considering doing than since I have finally acquired a fair amount of followers. Thanks for your comment.

        Micki

  7. All compelling reasons Janice, for sure.

    I write posts like I breathe so publishing 2 posts a week is routine for me; this means I handle all blogging on my blog, solo. But if I weren’t super clear on my writing and branding I’d accept guesties. I did in the past. It was fun, but in the same regard I let one slip through where the quality was not great and the blogger never responded to a single comment. I stripped his link, he complained, I smiled and explained how guest posting on my blog means basically mimicking how I treat my posts.

    Lesson learned. GPing is closed for now but down the road, who knows? I may switch things up. With that in mind though I suggest any new blogger open up their blog to guest posting, to build bonds, to drive traffic, to make great friends and to establish clarity around your blogging campaign.

    • Hi Ryan,
      You bring up a good point. Many of my guest authors haven’t responded to comments even when I remind them. However, as you always say, we need to think of the needs of our reader. If the post is full of valuable tips, that’s what matters I feel in the long run. However, I once had a few guest authors ask if they could return. They never responded to comments the first time which is in my criteria for guest posting, so I said no.

  9. I gave a shot at hosting guest bloggers a couple of years ago and it was a most unpleasant experience. Maybe the particular niche makes a difference, I don’t know. What I do know is I ended up spending a LOT of time fielding requests from people wanting to provide articles and even though I provided a clear outline of acceptable format and the topics relevant to my blog I still ended up with articles that didn’t remotely fit in, were so poorly written that they required massive editing, or they linked to some sort of “opportunity” pitch.

    Anyway, I don’t mean to come off as a negative Nellie – I think you have outlined some great points and for those who are fortunate to find people who are reliable and able to write content that fits for their blog, I think it makes a lot of sense to invite people to guest post. It’s just not something I’ll consider again anytime soon.

    • Hi Marquita,
      I am glad you are sharing your experiences, negative or otherwise.
      However, I have a question. You said you spent a lot of time fielding requests.
      Could you just say no or ignore them? You might try inviting people you know are quality. I’ve done that in some instances.
      Janice

  10. When I have a guest blogger I get LOTS more pageviews. Plus it gives me time to work on other things. And my readers get to benefit from the expertise of others!

    • Hi Cathy,
      That’s exciting to hear! Thanks for writing to share your positive experiences with us. Whether I get LOTS of page views depends on the author and the topic.
      Janice

  11. Great advice. Thank you.

    • Hi Beth,
      Nice to see you. Thanks for writing to tell me you enjoyed my advice. My pleasure.
      Janice

  12. Great content. I’ve been considering a guest blogger or maybe guest blogging (if someone would see my need). Does make sense.

    • Hi Andrew,
      Thanks for writing to tell me you think my tips make sense. People are writing with mixed opinions about hosting a guest blogger. Definitely, try it and see how it goes. Let me know.

  14. These are all excellent reasons to host guest bloggers. I think it is wonderful to support other bloggers. I do not see anyone as competition. What would be the point in that?

  15. Hi Janice,

    What an insightful article you have here. I totally agree withthe points you presented. However, as Ryan noted, you need to be selective of those you choose to guest blog for you.

    That being said, the benefits or reasons are enormous, to support your points, accepting guest blogging also helps you drive traffic to your website, and new subscribers as well.

    It further helps you to build a brand name and a special bond with those who are guest blogging for you.

    In fact, offering guest blogging provides amazing opportunities.

    Thanks for sharing.

    NB: I’m sorry it’s been long since my first guest post. I will be sending my article in the coming week. Thanks for understanding!

    • Hi Moss,
      I would be thrilled to host you again. Thanks in advance, and thanks for your comments on my article. It sounds like we agree on the benefits of hosting a guest blogger.
      Janice

  16. Hello Janice,

    I am always prefer to allow guest post on my blog since I have started my blog a year ago. This helps me to connect with some quality writers and bloggers. However I am quite choosy about guest posts and only accept the post that suits my blog audience. Thanks for sharing these great insights with us all.

    Have a great day 🙂

    • Hi Vishwajeet,
      Thanks for writing this testimonial that hosting guest writers is a good idea. Since I send potential guest writers my criteria, they only send me posts that my audience, so it’s worked out pretty well.

  17. I’m looking for freelance writing jobs. I’ve experience as a writer for corporate. I’ve the ability to present collected thoughts in easy to understand manner. Can you mention your email, are you looking for writers now for twenty17!

  18. Hi Janice,

    Someone who has clicked on to the benefits of guest blogging! This is something I have acted on straight away to start doing. There are so many exciting reasons to allow guest blogging and also to do it! Guest authors will eventually make up a large portion of my blog content as my time to write articles grows shorter.

    People reading this article should finally have their eyes opened to the benefits of guest blogging, nice job! If your interested come and do a guest post or 2 🙂

    • Hi Richard,
      Thanks for your comments, compliments, and the invitation to guest post.
      With my day job as a teacher, writing for my blog, and writing sponsored posts that pay the bills, time is short. However, if I get the opportunity, I’d be interested.
      In response to what you wrote: as my time grows shorter, I am also relying on guest authors more and more.
      Janice

  19. Hi Janice,

    I enjoy having guest posts on my blog – partly because my time is very short, but also because it’s a way to introduce my readers to content that I know nothing about, and haven’t the time to research. After all, no-one can know everything!

    That said, I am very fussy about what I allow and will edit it to make sure it meets my standards for grammar and spelling. I have refused to publish articles that I thought were sub-standard in content.

    One other worry is that images are copy-right free.

    Unless it’s a blogger I know well and trust I ask them to email me the copy and I publish it myself. Sometimes I will set up a “Contributor” WP user if I’m really short of time, but that does worry me a little. Which approach do you take?

    • Hi Joy,
      As far as concern over plagiarism of the photos– I agree with your concerns.
      When guest authors send me a graphic, I am delighted, but I always ask the source so I don’t have to worry about getting sued.
      I also edit for grammar and spelling.
      If the post is substandard in content, I’ll send it back or elaborate on the post in my intro and conclusion.
      Thanks for writing.

    • Hi Nicky,
      Thanks for writing. I agree with your comments– most articles on this topic are about guest blogging not hosting a guest blogger. For this reason, I didn’t know if anyone would be interested and it sat on the “shelf” for a long time. As it turned out, there is widespread interest. The post was even reblogged!
      Janice

  21. Hi Janice,

    Great tips here, as always. I agree for bloggers to accept guest blogging opportunities. Some months back I have received tons of posts sent by people to my email even without pitching. Worst of it all, some send posts which are literally not related to my blog niche. When these come, I send to the trash and may never respond.

    Guest blogging can be a great tactic to gather more audience and gain exposure. It makes possible for other bloggers to build more relevant relationships. As I grew in blogging I’ve come in contact with so many blogging fathers and blogging moms. I send out links and even encourage those who come to me for blogging inspiration to their blogs.

    Of course, your blog is one and has been mentioned in the list of blogging moms to follow right on my recent blog post. I love the value you share here. I’m an avid reader – will keep reading, sharing and growing. Have a great day Janice.

  24. Guest blogging is something that Google is trying to discourage but if you’re putting out something good, then its good right? A guest post is not an opportunity to build links, its an opportunity to grow your blogging reputation and so any guest spot you make needs to be as good if not better than anything you add to your own site

      I did not know Google was trying to discourage guest posts but it’s understandable for the reason you gave. I see the posts I’m sent. Many are written by professional freelancers who’ve been paid to put a link in my article. However, if the post is valuable and the link occurs naturally in the context of the post, I overlook it. Since they’re professional writers, many guest authors write amazing posts. If the link doesn’t occur naturally, I put it in their bio. They’re usually okay with that. Thanks for writing.

  26. I’ve had a number of guest bloggers over on my blog, and it’s always been a great experience, Janice. However, do beware those that send you an email, or contact you through your blog, that starts off with not mentioning your name when it’s clear on your blog what your name is. I’ve had a number of people send me guest posts that include links to websites where, for every click to that site, they get a commission. This is usually when the websites have nothing to do what the post is about.

    I ‘m kicking off a brand new guest feature on my blog tomorrow where I’ll be introducing some brand new bloggers who have just entered the world of blogging. I’m giving them some support and promotion and introducing them to my followers. They will be asking some questions, so I hope more established bloggers out there will come and help.

    • Hi Hugh,
      People send me guest posts to my email. Honestly, I can’t recall if I ever looked to see if it started “Dear Janice,” or not. I sure will going forward now that you and others here have strongly recommended it.
      Question: I have always felt even though professional freelance writers include links they were paid to include, if the post will help my readers blog more successfully, as long as the link fits naturally in the content, it doesn’t matter. What do you think? You and others are giving such strict warnings I’d like to know. Thanks,
      Janice

      • Many of the emails I get asking to guest post also say that my blog has great content and that their post will be perfect for my readers. Yet, I have received guest posts that relate to women’s fashion, shoes, make-up tips, opera etc, etc, etc. So, I ask myself, have these people really read my blog and looked at the content I have published? I’ve got into the habit now of spotting spam emails asking to guest post. Debby Giles published a great post on this subject. I don’t know if you read it, Janice?

        In answer to your question – I’ve read that readers don’t like too many links that lead to sites that have no relation to the post or the blog they are reading. If they get fed up with being led off in a direction they were not expecting from the link, then they could unfollow. I had one person who kept sending me guest posts. The links led to sites such as camping sites, hotels, recipes and sites that would write articles for you for a fee, yet the post had nothing to do with the content of his post or my blog. In the end, I had to block emails from him because he would not take ‘no’ for an answer. I think he merely looked at the number of followers and then tried his luck without even spending any time on looking at the content.

        If the links have a good connection to what has been written, then I would not have too much of a problem with it. However, I would mention in my introduction that there are affiliated links included in the post that would mean the guest blogger would get paid per click. I’ve seen many bloggers already doing this on their blogs. At least, then, my readers would know what to expect.

        • Thank you for the advice. I did read Debby’s article. I will consider making that change for affiliated links.
          Janice

  27. Hi Janice, Great post. Popular subject. I have had a few guest posts on my blog but did not really pursue it. Having read your article I see that I should be opening up my blog to guest posting, It builds bonds, drives traffic, and makes great friends.As Ryan noted, the need to be selective as to who you choose to guest post for you. Marquita who had a bad experience and said she will not be considering doing it again any time soon. Moss’s comment as to the benefits, traffic to your website and new subscribers.Building your brand name and I like that he mentioned the special bond with those who are guest blooging for you. I think that I will be tweaking your “criteria link” and be adding in my blog and adding with my signature that I am accepting guest posts. Thanks for the helpful post.

    • Hi Kathryn,
      Thanks for the thoughtful comments. I am glad I could help– both with my inspiration to host authors and with my criteria for guest posting. Definitely try it again and let me know how it goes.
      Janice

  28. Thanks for the excellent tips on guest blogging. It’s not something I’ve ever considered for my main blog, but I am starting a new blog and will definitely be looking for guest bloggers for that one when the time comes. I will take a look at your guest blogging criteria, and adapt it. Thanks so much for offering that.

    blog! I have had a few guest bloggers in the past, some good some not so good. I guess before I do this again i am going to set some guidelines first. Is this something you do?

    Great share my friend.
    Thanks
    Chery :))

  30. Janice,
    Useful reminder to invite guest bloggers. I have done that when others have reached out to me but rarely have I solicited guest bloggers. That certainly can increase the trafiic and benefit both the guest and yourself.

    Warmly,

  31. Janice,

    I have only used guest bloggers when they first reached out to me but I have not invited anyone. Thanks for the reminder of all the ways it benefits both the guest blogger and the owner of the blog site with additional traffic.

    Warmly,

  32. Hi! Thanks for sharing this great piece of information with us! I agree with you, guest blogging is a very powerful thing and can greatly help you to develop and improve your blog. It’s been a year since I’ve started accepting guest bloggers’ articles to my website and it helps me always to have some fresh and interesting content absolutely for free. Of course, there are also negative aspects of all this. For example, I got lots of spam and irrelevant proposals. Another big problem – people often send me not original articles from other resources or articles in which there is a lot of plagiarism. Therefore, I want to warn some people like me that you should never forget to check the articles of your guest authors for plagiarism in plagiarism checker. It is very important. If you overcome all the negative aspects of the guest blogging, this will be a really wonderful source of new and interesting content for your blog!

  33. I agree with your Guest Blogging views. Apart from the traffic generated; it will also develop our learning and keep us up-to-date of the latest. When I go to a blog wherever I’m thinking to post, it is a known truth that it does produce quality traffic, helps in link-building and backlinks, increases our learning, and we easily get to engage so many different and innovative readers those want to talk on your post. The guest blogging done properly is an excellent source for not only to build traffic but a lot of other advantages connected with it. I always get continuously with new information I can use. We’re all studying and growing as we go with all new ways including guest blogging.

    Once you begin guest blogging, it’s necessary to keep the momentum moving. I have lots of things on my mind right now with recycling, re-editing my old blog posts, but guest posting is way up at the top of the list which involves both publishing and posting guest posts. It’s interesting to understand the progress you have detected from the guest blogging. From my point of view, guest post is very beneficial for several bloggers since sometimes what happens when any blogger is working in different work then guest post prove quite effective in that days for that blogger besides that it’s too profitable for staying in touch with other bloggers.

    All the technics shows, the guest blogging encourages you to gain traffic, get in front of your readers, and increase your domain authority. Thanks for this article and allow me to express my words.

  34. Thank you for all the great help and wonderful website! I am very excited to explore it more in depth tomorrow.

    • Hi Melissa,
      I did receive the notification you signed up. Thank you! I’m excited about our connection!
      I hope it’s okay if I answer your question here on the post so others can see.
      Where to get guest authors?
      1. The Daily Post Community Pool occurs every Monday. I’ve seen people ask for guest authors there.
      2. Facebook groups: I’ve seen people ask for guest authors.
      3. Even Google. If you find a blog on Google, see if they accept guest authors. If they accept them, they may be happy to guest author for you.
      I hope these tips help.
      Janice
