Guest bloggers are people who post one or more articles on a Blog to which they are not a regular contributor. A guest blogging spot can be a once-off, or can be a steady gig eg. when the regular blogger is on holidays.

Best practices[]

  • Provide a brief introduction, with the guest blogger's name, background, and a link back to their own blog
  • You may like to create a "Guest Blogger" account on your blog and post all guest posts under that account.
  • Ask your guest blogger to monitor comments on the guest post, and respond to them in a timely fashion. Negotiate when would be the best time for the post to go up (eg. morning in their timezone), so that the guest blogger can be thoroughly engaged.
