Spice Up Your Blog: Guest Bloggers

If you are looking for additional way to add spice into your blog, why not try having guest bloggers?

Guest bloggers could be considered as another way of livening up the blog since it brings a fresh voice and at the same adds value to the content of blogs especially niche ones. What are the qualities of a good guest blogger? Here are some tips:

a. Invite a guest blogger that has experience – If you are looking for a professional blogger who could add rich content in your blog, then you have to look for someone who knows how blogging is done and additional things they could do. You need not instruct them step by step because they themselves should know how to do it.

b. Invite a blogger whom you know virtually – Even if you do not meet face to face everyday, establishing good relationship online or through blogs is a great way to more or less assess a person. Knowing a person virtually either by word of mouth or virtual encounter would give you a sense of trust when giving them a space in your blog. Bloggers with the same or opposite topic of yours could be a good candidate.

c. Invite a “resource-type” person – This means that these bloggers are information personified for that topic. This is in order to have quality in their blog posts and also to show to people that the bloggers that you are inviting to write are really worth it.

Now, here comes the tricky part: the exchange. Of course, guest blogging is two-way process which means that the guest needs to get another one in return. This could be in the form of cash or kind but personally, just having that connection between these bloggers are enough.

By the way, I’m looking for one as well. Do you know anything about recruitment? 😉
