    I have always hesitated about Guest Blogging. One major blog from my niche contacted me about six months ago, asking me if I can become one of their guest blogger. However, I turned it down because the major blog wanted me to write about a specific topic, and I was not up to it (and plus they sounded very rude in their e-mail).

    However, I received another e-mail last night, from another major blog. They also wanted me to become their guest blogger, and they are actually willing to pay for my posts and I can make decisions and suggestions about what articles I want to submit. The most important thing they did was they made the e-mail to be very friendly and personal. I said yes right away but turned down the money offer (I know it’s weird). It wasn’t much $ to begin with, and I don’t like the feeling to be obligated to something. Which is why I told them I’d rather receive no pay, but to have more freedom with my guest posts. Such as choosing topics, make a guest blogger introduction page about myself, inter-linking posts to my own blog (with 1 link or 2) etc.

    I think I made the right decision, both times. Guest blogging definitely benefits me, but at the same time, I’d like to feel being respected by the major blogs. What do think Rahul? Was I wrong to turn down the major blog from the first e-mail I received? I’d love to hear your comments.

    i liked your post but i do not agree with #4…
    to be honest, if anyone will write keeping this in mind, your main aim of writing a good post will not be served….concentrate on the content and if it is good, it will be published

    • Sonu says

      There is a reason behind that question and i.e you will got to know why you think your guest post will be published.

    Hi Pal

    On the other hand, you will want to avoid thinking too much and not even making a guest post altogether. Remember, hesitation (and no action) is an evil!

    Good luck to all
