Guest posting can become the bane of my existence. Not because I don’t enjoy it, but because it is next to impossible to find a gig these days. There are just too many writers vying for a spot on even the low traffic blogs, and it is frustrating as can be trying to get just a single monthly space anywhere.
Don’t even get me started on how difficult it is trying to find a blog to apply for. Everywhere you go these days, there seems to be a notice up saying that they don’t take unsolicited post requests. It is similar to how the publishing industry refuses to take manuscripts without an agent, only that makes sense, and blogs saying that does not.
There are also quite a few MyBlogGuest video reviews which were created by the users and show the various features and how the members use them.
Those that do offer guest blogging opportunities have so many requests most of the time that they find it impossible to even read them all, which is why unless you are part of some kind of blog network that works with them regularly, you have a slim chance of making the cut – which is why I finally bit the bullet and joined up with My Blog Guest.
What It Is and How It Works
MyBlogGuest is a networking site that connects writers with prospective blogs. But unlike freelancer sites that do this for potential projects, it takes work you have already written and lets blog owners come to you. Writers never have to sell off their work, instead, they wait for bloggers to contact them with bids for publication.
Blog owners can then search the categories or tags, which you will have listed at the time of the upload. If they like what they see, they can contact you with an offer. This offer will include a link to their site for you to check out, and a date of publication.
When you get an offer, you will get an alert via PM and email. You can go through all bids and accept the one you like most. Once the post goes live, you will get another alert, and it will go into the link tracker.
Through this tracker you will be able to monitor all articles, including Facebook and Twitter shares and traffic. If your post is changed, deleted or no-followed, you will be alerted.
