It’s Experiment Time at DailyBlogTipsas well - “I thought about it and decided to run an experiment in 2013: I won’t be publishing guest posts anymore and will write all the posts myself (so be warned: you are stuck with my ramblings now!).” Daniel Scocco Founder, DailyBlogTips.com
Sometime ago, CopyBlogger.comand SmashingMagazine.com madea similar shift in their guest postingstrategies.They stopped accepting unsolicitedguest post submissions.They turned invite-only.
But, why are all these A-list bloggers stopping to acceptunsolicited guest post submissions (after so manyyears of starting their blogs)?Common reasons include –1. It’s lots of hard work dealing with loads of submissions they receive.2. Most of the guest posts they get are low-quality and irrelevant, submitted by SEO and marketing companies.3. They plan to provide readers with more focused and in- depth articles.4. They plan to take readers on a journey over time.
Getting guest posts published, even ifyou have something really unique toshare, on A-list blogs is already a hardnut to crack.Once published, however, it proves tobe a boon for budding bloggers. Agolden opportunity to get noticedquickly.The natural way.
The halt onunsolicitedguest postsubmissions byA-list bloggersis a new orsemi-popularblogger’snightmare.
Well, no hard feelings. They havecomplete freedom to make theirown decisions, choose their pathas they please. It’s fine.
It’s only that even real authors have to pay the price for what low-value spammers are doing !
