Why become a guest blogger?
Guest blogging is a great way to create backlinks to your website and build your writer’s platform. Clients, editors, publishers and agents love to see where you write. They’re interested in what you write, how you communicate with your audience, how you interact with fans, how you handle criticism from fans, etc. Another benefit is you have more samples of writing to show potential, new clients.
What’s your style, tone and voice?
Your words can make an impact; what you say and how you say it makes a difference. The bottom line is your tone of voice does matter. Speak with authority and own your writing expertise and knowledge. Be conversational like you’re having coffee with a friend. Channel your inner Barbara Walters or Anderson Cooper and be controversial; get to the bottom of an issue. Solve a problem with a case study or compare and contrast. I think you get the idea.

What guest blogging can do for you and me?
Becoming a guest blogger gives you the opportunity to reach more people. The more exposure you have the better. Also, guest blogging is a free way to grow your web presence and showcase your writing. You can share your posts with your Twitter and Facebook followers. They can ‘retweet’ or share your posts with their friends and so on. You can’t lose!
By the way, whether you want to guest blog here and there or on a specific day is up to you. Don’t worry if you miss a day, I won’t be upset. I understand that life happens.
