Today I’m going over some websites that will help you find some people that love blogging and that would love to write for your blog.
The first site I’d like to tell you about today is Blogger LinkUp. I’ve been using this site since the start of my blog. I’ve already gotten many great articles from other people that use Blogger LinkUp to find and distribute their blog posts to people that need them.
The second site I’m going to be talking about is My Blog Guest, which is more of a forum where you can find people that will guest blog for you. I’ve only been using this site for a few weeks, but so far it’s been working really well.
How to use Blogger LinkUp to get guest posts
Go to the Blogger LinkUp website, and click on the “Request guest posts” link thats located in the right hand navigation menu. Now fill out the required info, and try to make the “Headline” and the “What are your needs for guest posts” sections as descriptive as possible. This will not only make it easier for people looking for a site that needs specific articles about a topic easier to find, but also make it easier to know what your blog is about.
One you’re done filling out all the info just click the “send email”
How to use My Blog Guests to get guest posts
This one is a little more difficult to use. Essentially it’s a forum where people who blog come together to share articles that they’re willing to let you use as a guest post on your blog.
To get started first you need to go to the website, and then click the “Sign Up for Free” button that’s on the homepage. Once you’re in, you should set up your profile so that it’s easy for people to know a little about you and your blog.
After doing that you should go to the forums (read the rules for them first) and then start a forum entry asking people if they’d like to guest blog for you. You can also go over to the Article Gallery and find some posts that people have already written.
Like I said at the beginning of this post, I haven’t really used My blog Guests that long. If your blog doesn’t already have some good content, it’s unlikely that you’ll be getting many post offers from this site until you do.
Along with the blog posts I write myself, these two sites have helped me become known in the blogosphere by continually getting great content posted to my site every few days.
If you have any questions about these two sites, or just want some of my advice on how to go about getting more people to want to write posts for your blog, just let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to help you.
