Are you a blogger???
Of course, you are a blogger, that’s why you are here, reading this post.
As a blogger myself, I know we all strive to get recognition and the exposure in the blogosphere. I too am trying to get my hands on these two things.
I am blogging for more than 6 months but got serious about it just around 2 months back. This two months have completely changed my life as a blogger. Before two months no blogger was knowing me and today I can proudly say that some of the popular bloggers know me. How did I manage to get this recognition?
The title of the post will give you the answer. It’s through guest post that I achieved this status.

Yeah, I know that by doing guest posts, you surely can get do-follow backlinks to your blog. I too started in a bid to get some high quality backlinks. But after some approved posts on some popular blogs, I got to know that guest posting is not at all about backlinks or traffic, as our minds are stuffed with, rather its something else that a blogger get from this practice.
If you read around different blogs and search for the benefits of guest blogging, backlinks and traffic will top the list, but believe me they are not eligible to be at the top. Its a personal experience.

The biggest benefit that you get via guest posts is the exposure to a completely new set of audience. The interaction with different people or bloggers of different niches is the biggest thing that you get. If we talk about backlinks or traffic, then you can count them as a freebie of doing guest post.
Some of you might not believe me. You would think I am nuts; but this is something that only people who do guest posts on a regular basis will understand. I understood after doing some posts. I got some loyal readers to my blog, I get more comments then what I used to get, my social media followers increased and are increasing, some of the bloggers are asking me to guest post on their blogs, I am getting emails to become author of different blogs, bloggers on whose blog I have done guest posts are appreciating my work………. Tired reading it. But all this is truth. I expected this to happen but not so early. Guest posts have given me a lot of exposure. More and more bloggers are coming in my social network and I am just loving socializing with them.

If you are still not getting my point, I will give some examples who has earned great benefits from guest posting. Michael Chibuzor from ContentMarketingUp.com, Onibalusi Bamidele from YoungPrePro.com, Jane Sheeba from ProBloggingSuccess.com- these are some bloggers who have got a lot of exposure through guest blogging. All of them have done 250+ guest posts and still going strong. They have earned a lot of reputation and thus lots of bucks from their services.
Do you know who Zac Johnson is ?? If you are a blogger, you will surely know him. He is the biggest affiliate marketer in the blogosphere. He owns some of the biggest blogs, but he still regularly appears as a guest author on many blogs. Why ?? Because he knows the true benefit of guest blogging. The interaction with new audience and turning them into loyal readers, these points are compelling even a Problogger to guest post.

If you do guest post and just forget about it when it goes live, them you will not get any benefit from your post. All the efforts you have put in to create a rocking guest post will go futile.
We don’t want that, right ?? So do this. Keep a track of your guest post once it goes live for at least 10 days. because in the first 10 days, you have the chances of getting maximum comments. Reply to each comments in a way that it starts off a conversation. Thus you will end up in getting more comments and recognition. And finally you will enjoy a lot of exposure and can boast of a good amount of new blogger friends.
