Guest blogging has become come more popular in the blogosphere since it is a means of getting exposure in the blogging world, building backlinks, creating a brand for you and your blog, getting traffic and also just for the fun of it.
Not all bloggers have the ability to write excellent guest posts which have the readers begging for more. Plenty of bloggers suck at guest posting and that’s why the blog owners reject their guest post.
I have gathered 6 reasons why you suck at guest blogging. There might be more reasons, but I am only going to give you 6.
Why Your Guest Blogging Sucks
This happens to most new guest bloggers. They submit a post that is way too long or way too short.
Not all long posts are worth reading. Some are long and boring with no beneficial points for its readers. And then there are some that are too short to be even called a blog post.
On most blogs that accepts guest posts normally have a word limit. You should follow the rules and stick to them.
Think of guest blogging as writing for your own blog. After writing a post you would normally promote it so as to get traffic going to your article and this traffic turns into readers. Your readers will make comments on your article which will make you happy.
So you should think of it just the same. You should promote your guest post so that when others see that you have lots of comments and views on that guest post they will know that you are a great guest blogger.
Your guest post should be full with information to benefit and satisfy your readers needs, depending on what you are blogging about. The best guest post is one that is fully developed with enough information to make any reader happy.
I am pretty sure that you would not accept a guest post which is not fully developed with all key points…. So be sure that if you are a guest blogger, you have the main points for the post before you think about submitting it.
All guest blogger like to benefit by getting some links back to their site or to some articles that they have written to gain some sort of traffic. But having too much links in your post can make your post seem like a spam post and that you are doing too much promotion.
When you don’t take time to write your guest post, you may seem like a 4-year-old who is just learning to write. You should make sure that there are not spelling errors and your points are broken up into paragraphs.
If you want to develop great writing all you have to do is read more and write more.
Some guest bloggers want to blog about a topic that is already blogged out. Not because everybody is blogging about a certain topic means that you have to guest blog about it as well. You should strive to stand out from the crowd and be unique when you are guest blogging.
