Look for those pieces of content, and from there you can come up with another idea or share your tips on the topic they were talking about.• Ask your fellow readers by posting on social media sites, emailing your list, posting on your blog, or asking one of them directly what they want to learn more about.
A Few Important Rules to Follow• Write a post, and then ask the blog to publish it along with a pitch on why the should. A lot of people will ask if they can do a post before they write one, but many bloggers like looking at a finished post and you will notice a higher success rate.• Always write unique, and quality content that is well thought out because remember you are trying to attract their readers to come to your website.• Make sure you take the time to respond to comments that people leave below your post.• Research that blog before doing your guest post by reading several of their guest posts so you know what kind of content they like, the length of the content, how many links are allowed in your author bio and rules like that. Sometimes a blog will have guest posting guidelines which is giving you the rules on a silver platter, but that often isn’t the case.
