Category #MyBlogGuest Twitter Chat Posted by

*The best way to monitor and participate in a Twitter chat is by joining Twchat*

Everyone is talking about guest blogging now to the extent that we start missing the actual point of the whole thing, i.e. guest blogging is building relationships through creating and exchanging great content.

Thus guest blogging is one of the most powerful content marketing tactics: It’s about bringing your content in front of the new audience for more exposure and feedback.

Moreover, because guest blogging forces you to target different-niche bloggers, it teaches you to get immensely creative. It educates you as a content marketer and teaches you to brainstorm and brainstorm a lot.

How to Find Free Articles and Website Content

Category General Posted by


This guide is by our awesome moderator Don Sturgill

Articles are easy to find. Link-builders everywhere want you to publish their work on your website. The problem is that some articles hurt you in the long run. You’re better off not publishing anything at all.

That’s a gap Ann Smarty saw, years ago. Her brainchild, My Blog Guest (MBG) has one mission: Helping you succeed at either finding great content, getting your articles published on quality websites, or both.

I won’t try to convince you of that, though; the proof is in the pudding. The only way you will know, for sure, that this isn’t just another marketing scheme … is to join up (absolutely free) and test the waters.

The first step is to registration. You won’t need a credit card for this; there is no fee. You will need about 10 minutes to get your website(s) cleared for publishing MBG articles and to get your social media information working for you.

Ready? Let’s do it!

Here’s how to get started with My Blog Guest

First, travel to the My Blog Guest home page.

A Guide To Writing Quality Guest Posts In A New Age Of SEO

Category General Posted by

from-myblogguest-userToday we welcome another verified author on our blog Ross Hinton! Not only is he awesome enough to join our Google Authorship for guest blogging program, he is also awesome enough to preach what we believe in, i.e. high-quality guest blogging!

For a long time, the terms ‘SEO’ and ‘quality content’ didn’t really go together. Now, they couldn’t be more connected. SEO used to be a campaign built upon quantity. It was a tactic, rather than a strategy. It was a shortcut to success. Times have changed, however, and now quality is key.

Guest blogging is a great way to get your company or brand name out on a highly reputable site. Having a blog published on is, for example, the holy grail for many a digital marketing company. Read more »

How to Maintain Blog Quality While Accepting Guest Contributions

Category #MyBlogGuest Twitter Chat Posted by

There’s a steady rumor that accepting guest contributions might negatively impact the blog quality. Here’s the truth: It’s not guest posting; it’s how you do it, dummy 🙂

Most of the hugest blogs you know enjoy (regular) contributors from guests on a weekly basis; and that’s the major reason why they grew so big: Free contributions allow them to have lots of great content daily without huge investments.

Can you name a couple of examples of such blogs? Just from top of your mind!


Now, those huge blogs were small once. They grew *together* with their contributors… But how did they start? Or better question would be “How you, as a medium-size blogger, can get big together with your contributorsRead more »
