Guest blogging

Posted by Meg Bear on March 28, 2011

In the past year I’ve been encouraged to start guest blogging.  I’m told it is great for your brand and your visibility.  I’ve also been told it’s good for your complexion, but maybe I just made that part up.

oh the pressure.

As I’m sure you might have guessed, it’s hard to follow up with the idea of guest blogging when you have a very hectic schedule and just blogging seems a huge time commitment.

but then, along comes a close friend that knows how to get you to act.  The key to get me to do something is to keep asking.  I think this is because I admire persistence vs. that I’m just susceptible to peer pressure, but I could be wrong.

So I’m now guest blogging over at Tahlent.

Of course, I started before I read these great tips Sharlyn shared with her network.  My lack of research on the topic might have been a good thing, since top of the list was make sure your content is good.  At least I am sure I nailed the final suggestion.. keep it short.

Check it out and let me know how much you love it ;-).

    Hi Meg
    We write a weekly blog. It’s a shared responsibility across the 3 of us here in the office. We’ve spoken about creating room for guest bloggers, for the same reasons you mention above. But how do we find them without sounding like we’re delegating this task?!

      @Cath – I think as long as you offer without demanding it’s a win/win. I think you will find that most people would like to be asked.
