5 Things to Remember while Writing First guest post

Guest posting is the best way to be a member of the well-known community of the bloggers. Guest post also helps the writer to have good backlinks and traffic on their blog as well. Writing a guest post in some of the popular blogs, not only puts you in the spot light but also teach you how to communicate to the other bloggers via commenting and discussions. This is my first guest post on shoutmeloud.com. There are few things that I feel every blogger should keep in mind before writing a guest post.

Writing First Guest Post

Writing first guest post? Things you should know:

1. Be a regular reader of the blog:

Firstly subscribe to that blog via email or feed readers so that you come to know whats happening on the blog on which you are going to write  guest post. Read through the comments and get a feel for what content is acceptable and popular on that blog. Then submit a guest post idea that is relevant to the content of that blog.

2. Write your best:

Ofcourse its your first guest post and it should contain the best content as you are not writing on your own small network but you are now in front of  all the great and successful bloggers. One simple mistake can be very harmful to your blogging network. So take time give your guest post a better shape.

3.Don’t go for personal Branding:

Rather promoting yourself concentrate on your content. Dont add any links that promotes  your blog or website. You should keep this in mind you are writing a first guest post and its very important for you. Adding too much links may result to be a spam and you may be rejected as a guest blogger.

4. Be ready after posting a guest post:

After posting a guest post people will surely visit your site for more updates about you and you have to make sure that your blog is ready for the visitors. Your blog should contain atleast that much posts and content that you can give a reason to your visitors to come everyday to your blog.

5. Promote your guest post:

You have to keep this in mind the last thing that after the approval of your guest post you have to promote the blog as well your post. Simple the more traffic on the blog , more the popularity of your post and you will get a good traffic. It’s all about to work in the community without any jealousy, selfishness and be honest. Follow these simple steps and your blog will surely got up high as you want always.

    these are basically the steps i followed for my first guest post, which happened to be on this blog too!

  2. dipakden

    yes absolutely sandeep……….

  3. Sandeep

    Absolutely right Deepak.
    Yes, one should not place too many links to their websites in the guest posts. It’ll make the post clumsy. And also responding to the comments on your guest post takes you closer to the readers.

    @anup: yeah sure from you can place a link for your website while guest posting but don’t make your guest post too crowded with your website links.
    one link is more than enough…. 🙂 thnx..

  8. Anup @ Hack Tutors

    Great tips.

    I eespecially like how you said “3.Don’t go for personal Branding”. This is very important, because the less you concentrate on personal branding in a guest post, and the more you concentrate on content, you will have more visitors to your blog.


  12. deepak sharma

    thanx tinh and devesh….. will surely come in future with good content….
    looking forward for your support…..

  13. deepak sharma

  14. Mukundan Srinivasan

    Really likes ur post. Great tips. I have never thought so much when writing a guest post.

  15. nsmukundan

    I haven’t written any guest posts so far. I will keep all these points in mind when I write a guest post. I like the point – No personal Branding. Overall the article was nice.

  16. Mohit Sharma

    hi deepak..first of all congrats for your first post on shoutmeloud.. Nice tips..some are really obvious though..and i feel that writing your best post is important only if you do not plan to write for that blog regularly in the future..else you can start with good enough content if you do not have much experience in the niche and advance to better quality gradually with time. Another point that you missed out is not getting disheartened if your post gets rejected by the editor and keep trying. 🙂 ..Anyways, I especially liked the last line..really important – “work in the community without any jealousy, selfishness and be honest”

  17. Devesh

    Hey Deepak,

    Nice Post. Some great points there.
    I really like the idea of promoting your own guest post.

    Thanks for sharing this great Post. Keep up the good work.


  18. Tinh

    All of them are correct, good content will drive more traffic to your blog and you can build up your personal branding too 🙂 Thanks
