    At present, guest blogging is considered to be the “in” thing and it has started gaining popularity among new as well as old bloggers. But many new bloggers are kinda¬† confused about it and do not have an idea that “How to write a guest post that will be accepted” .

    Hence, I would like to share some tips on writing quality guest post which will be welcomed by bloggers.

    Plan your post

    What would be your topic? What will be the title? How will you present it? How are the readers going to respond to it? Try to answer all these questions before anything else.

    Design out a framework of your post and figure it out that how are you going to implement that framework. The framework that I use for my guest posts is something like:

    • Headline
    • Introduction
    • Content
    • Conclusion
    • “What to do next ?” Note.

    Create attractive headlines

    As you would have observed as a reader, the first thing you notice is the headline. Try to think of a catchy title that describes your content well. Never choose the first headline that comes to your mind, think out 3-5 unique titles and pick out the best one.

    A headline has the power to both attract and repel visitors. Make your titles brief, punchy and those which you think will grab attention.

    How to get ideas for headlines :

    • Questions : If your content is answering a question, then why not use that question as your headline ?
    • Quotes : If you can find a quote that perfectly describes your content, it would make a great title.
    • Statistics: Using numbers in your headlines is a great way to let your readers know what they will be getting or what they can achieve by reading your content.

    Now that you know how to frame your headlines lets move on to the next tip.

    Set a time limit

    Time is money. Remember that, just don’t let yourself spend nothing but creating just the perfect blog post. You can never be perfect but yes that doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on quality.

    Just try to keep you sentences short and descriptive. Convey more in less text.

    Write what they really want!

    I have observed that many bloggers rather than providing the real content (that readers are looking for), post diluted information that is present almost everywhere.
    Try to make your self unique. Suppose, you are discussing a problem, just don’t share what the problem is ! your readers are here because they might already be facing the problem. You need to tell them the SOLUTION.
    Solving your reader’s problems is the best way to get what you really need.

    Taking this very post as an example, the question that you might ask is “How to write guest posts that are welcomed by bloggers ?” or if that is a bit long then “How to write great guest posts ?” and that is what my content is about.

    Well there you see, writing nice guest posts isn’t a big deal. You just need to take care of the quality and see to it that the content you post is really relevant for your readers.

    Those are good tips, Karan. I think it is important to put some extra effort into a guest post, because it is going to go out to an audience that may not be familiar with you, so they will form their initial impression about you based on the guest post.
