Interaction with other members

Can I contact other users from MyBlogGuest

Before contacting other members using MyBlogGuest, please complete your profile (not to be considered a random spammer) and make sure you follow these commonsense rules:

1. Make sure your message is relevant

For various reasons (including obvious abuse) we ask our members to only pitch each other with *guest-blogging* related questions. Exceptions can be any personal chats, jokes, anything that has nothing to do with marketing or promotion.

Please don’t contact each other privately for self-promotion purposes (advertising your services) or for marketing / link building help (offering link exchange, link sales, social media promotion, etc).

spam pm

We want our members to be free from any irrelevant pitches. If you get to know any other member well enough to discuss other ways to cooperate (provided you are both interested), please take this conversation outside MyBlogGuest

So before contacting any MyBlogGuest member, please, make sure:

  • Your question is guest blogging related;
  • The person you are about to contact must be interested in your message (i.e. that person explicitly expressed the interest using the public forum)

We don’t want you to feel your freedom is limited – but please mind that what seems pretty innocent to you may be considered as abusive and irrelevant spam to others. So let’s all follow generic common sense rules of conduct to avoid any unexpected issues. We are here to build contacts, not to ruin them!

2. Your message is personalized

Please don’t email or PM saying you want to guest post (or you are looking for a guest author), mention:

  • The user’s name
  • Your topic
  • Why you think the user will be interested (mention his / her thread or article that made you contact)

Please read about our contacting rules and options here.

How do I contact other members of MyBlogGuest

There are several ways to contact other members of our community. First, please make sure you have a good reason to contact anyone though.

Forum PM

PM (short for “Private Message”): You’ll get a reply to your MyBlogGuest inbox and all the correspondence will be kept there

TIP! Use our free built-in “Follow-up reminder” (works only for option one, i.e. PMs): It will only remind you to follow-up if your initial PM remains unanswered. That’s a great way to scale the whole contact management process:

guest blogging follow-up reminder

Besides having the built-in follow-up reminder, our PM system will help you figure if your message was read or missed:

  • See your Outbox (hover over the icon next to your outgoing message to see if the person even opened your message)

If you PM is read but not answered, that user must be not interested. Alternatively, if the user hasn’t logged for some time, he might be on vacation or just offline for some reason (In this case, PM him /her again but move the follow-up reminder one week later or more).

Forum email (external)

This will go to the user’s email inbox outside MyBlogGuest. It’s harder for us to track because, once sent, we lose track of it.

Social profiles (external)

Vising any user’s MyBlogGuest profile, please check if there are any social links shared on it. You can use those links to try and contact the user outside MyBlogGuest via your common network (like Twitter, Facebook, etc).

What is user and blog power?

The user power is meant to show how active each user is throughout major social media sites: Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Google Plus and Pinterest. Remember that members can arrange to help promote each other’s guest posts, that’s why this metric is so important.

The blog power is based on its Google PR, SEOmoz rank and number of pages indexed by Google

These ratings are to be used for information. Don’t base your judgements on the site quality using our ratings. Instead, make sure to visit each site and browse it a lot before you can tell if you like it or not. Guest blogging is about social interaction, not numbers.

Permalink.

The user is not replying. What should I do?

The first thing to do is to visit the user’s profile and see how much time has passed since the user logged in.

We are all human beings here. We can get ill, go traveling, have personal or business issues. If you see that the user hasn’t logged in for quite some time, it might be a smart idea to contact him outside MyBlogGuest (via forum email or social media networks)

If the user is logging in but not replying, he must be simply not interested. Just move on

If hearing back is very important for you, please report the user and we’ll try as well.

How can I report a user?

If you have any issues with any of the users, please use the red “Report” link below his avatar on his profile page to let the team look into the issue.

Please provide as much detail as you can: the link of the problematic article or thread, your reasons, dates, anything that might help us figure and settle the problem faster.

I have found no guest bloggers / no guest posting opps. What’s up?

MyBlogGuest is just a platform. It is not a tool or a service. To get any benefit, you need to commit: to post at forums, help others and “socialize”. Like any community it will only help active users who are ready to devote time to make friends and contacts.

Please visit your “Subscriptions” folder and go from folder to folder to see what you are subscribed.

Here’s more info on this option.

    I find this site very difficult to get into but it is probably me! You ask for my signature but there is a lot of space there. You obviously want more than my name written by in my hand What exactly do you expect? Where can I see a sample? In fact i can’t see anything on thous site yet probably because I have not submitted all my information.

      Brian, you should be able to see a small “checklist” to the left with some required steps to get started. Other than that nothing is required!

        Please help me get verified. I can’t ask anyone here since I’m not verified, but that’s my questions-so confusing.

        There’s no code to upload or place to click “verify” when you do or I would have done that.

        If I took a shot of the Google Analytics page for tile excellence, what email do I send it to? I already emailed this forum, and my message didn’t go through and it sent me to the forum. Can’t comment there cause I’m not verified. Wow.

        Okay. Just very frustrated.
        Thanks.

    can’t add my other 2 sites with email verification. A auto-reply verification still never came

      Why don’t you try another method of verification

      Please mind that each email should be at corresponding domain for it to work. Please also check the spam folder

    It seems that my blog does not meet the site requirements. I’m guessing that it because it is not “established” enough.

    Can I submit articles for guest posting? I would still like to participate in this community. I am also a member at Viral content buzz and Triberr and am active in social media.

    Thank you,
    Sabra

    I am trying to sign up to your site, but the Captcha code is not being recognised and saying I’ve typed it in wrong. I have tried 4 / 5 times and made sure that it is correct. I cannot email you either because it’s saying the same thing.

    Please can you contact me.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I have installed the plugin on our website, I have gone through the verification process, and I’ve done everything you’re asking for, but I still can’t see any content whatsoever on the website when using the plugin. It’s not working. And I have to say, the process of getting set up on your platform and the system used for that is almost like getting set up for government security access to the Pentagon…:)

    This site is very confusing. I’ve been looking for everywhere for hours to get verified but can’t seem to find it.

      So I guess my service is not wanted since months have passed and I have yet to see any response to my question, whatsoever. Thanks for showing me how well this site works for people who are interested in it (sic), or actually how well it does not work for us, I suppose I should say. Feel free to ignore my request to join since answering a simple question is such an arduous task for the site owner(s). I would not wish to tax the powers that attempted to be beyond their capabilities. Feel free to delete me.
