These days, many blogs are accepting guest posts. Guest posts benefit both the guest writer and the blog owner. The guest writer gets fame and also traffic to his blog. You can easily set up guest posting on your WordPress blog by keeping registrations on and default permission as contributor. Anyways, in this post we will talk about 2 useful guest blogging WordPress Plugin which is recommended for all WordPress Sites, who allowed guest post submission from WordPress dashboard . First one in the list is: Peter’s collaborations e-mails WordPress plugin.
Peter’s Collaboration Emails:
This is a great WordPress plugin for guest posting. This plugin has many features. Like email notifications, etc.
- When a contributor submits an article for review, this plugin sends an email to the approvers so they can Approve the artical. The email also contains a link to edit the post, so approvers can make needed changes to the post.
- When an article is approved, the article contributor gets an email saying that his/her article has been approved and published. If the article is approved and scheduled, then the contributor gets an email saying that the article has been scheduled and the publishing date also be shown. The contributor also gets the name of the article appover.
- When the contributor’s article changes to “draft” from “pending”, the contributor gets an email saying that his/her article has been changed to “draft” and gives him/her a link to edit the post and re-submit it.

Peter’s Post Notes:
Another great plugin for guest blogging. This plugin can be used with “Peter’s Collaboration Emails” plugin. This plugin adds a “Note” area in the edit post page at right-side. This plugins lets contributor and approver to put notes to the article. Suppose, if a contributor writes a tutorial and does not add screenshots, then the approver can make a note saying “Add the screenshot”. So, the contributor understands it and adds screenshots. This plugins makes collaboration between contributor and approver more simple and more easy !

Specially if you are using Status notifier WordPress plugin, I would suggest remove status notifer and install Peter’s collabroatin Email and Peter’s post notes plugin. Specially, when you have to reject or need some changes in submitted guest post, you can always add notes and change status to draft to notify guest author about changes which he needs to make or why his post is rejected.
If you have used Status notifer and Peter’s collaboration Email plugin, do let us know which one you liked the most and why?
