I am sorry about the topic delay. I’ve had the topic for 3 or 4 days but it has been too hot to sit at the keyboard. Montana Hot. For us, 70 degrees is pushing it, 92 is sheer torture.
The topic is Guest Blogging.
I have a lot of experience with guest blogging. My personal website is full of Writerly Wednesday Guest Posts. I spotlighted authors of all kinds. It takes some preparation to Host each Spotlight but it is a low cost way of reaching new readers through the guest and the guest gains new readers from my blog as well.
Thank you, Sandra Beckwith for sending out a Newsletter at just the right time. I was looking for a topic and Guest Blogging is going to be our August Theme.
This post will be the basis of Guest Blogging in the coming weeks, so bookmark it now and we will revisit often.
Sandra Beckwith recommends guest blogging as a tactic that will help you reach more of the right readers.
You can host guest writers on your site, or you can write guest posts for others.

Here’s why – if you’re smart – you’ll take a fresh look at this effective book marketing tactic:
- Guest blogging helps you reach more of the right readers.
- You’ll create relationships with your blog host and their followers – relationships that can follow you back to your own website and social networks.
- Readers who learn about your book through guest blogging can purchase your book immediately from your article on the host’s site.
- Your article remains online indefinitely, making it a long-term marketing tool for your book.
- It will improve your own website’s SEO – search engine optimization – by linking back to your site.
The best part of this? Guest blogging is free.
The only cost is your time.
