While still fairly new to blogging, Blog Me Famous offers” Five Guidelines to Guest Blogging”. The one tip that really caught my eye was:
* Do not guest blog until you have content!
The first mistake I made was jumping into guest blogging too fast. Three days after my blog was launched I wrote an article on a high traffic industry leading blog only to loose all benefits that it would of brought to my blog (I’ll write an informative post about this soon.) It’s not something I would like to see repeated especially after you’ve created such great content for the guest post. So please at least wait until your blog has around 20-30 posts and you are going strong with at least one post per day. If you don’t the users will come but are unlikely to return.
…To conclude it’s important for a new blogger to ensure that they have enough quality content to back up their blog for the expected users coming through and to ensure that the quality of the post they are using reflects your blogs ideals.
