    Okay, I really shouldn't admit this, but I didn't actually know that My Blog Guest had it's own blog until just now. I followed Ann's tweet to find it. I've been using My Blog Guest for about a month now.

    Great infographic though!

      Me too, I thought SEOsmarty was the official blog for Myblogguest, seeing as the brand is already incorporated with Ann.

      Anyway, cute infographic and explains pretty much everything there is about guest blogging.

    Nice tip. It’s more like being unique. Since guest posting trend is increasing, It’s always a good advice to Do something out of box and enjoy traffic via Guest posting.

    Is it hard to get accepted as a guest poster or are most blogs open to it?

    A very easy to understand graphic. Thank you! I now get the point that I should do guest posting.

    I am puzzled how you knew one of my two readers was that weird guy from MySpace.

    Kind of says it all doesn't it?

    I didn't really realize the benefit of guest posting before I did one myself. I thought that I was just doing it for the link, but I got more new visitors then I had in months on my own, and better than that – they were targeted visitors who were interested in MY articles. That was enough to sell me on the guest blog.

    I totally appreciate My Blog Guest. It's a great way to find new related blogs.
