Ahh … Guest Bloggers …

Darren Rowse writes about Why guest bloggers are great for a blog after reading the Guest post over at John Chow’s Blog written by Matt Coddington. He says that it’s a win win situation because of the following reason :

  • The blogger who does the guest spot wins : The guest bloggers can get a link back to his site, and that’s including promoting himself
  • The blogger who owns the blog wins : The owner of the blog can take a break and do not have to worry about posting something new
  • The reader wins : because they get to hear about the topic of the blog from a new angle

While personally i agree to Darren Rowse statement, but maybe Darren forgot to tell you something important, the first thing that everyone noticed is John Chow’s blog has a big number of loyal readers. And with that condition of course you can get guest bloggers to easily write something for you because they’ll get the exposure by writing on John Chow’s Blog or any other popular blog

Even one of the commenters on that Guest Post over at John Chow’s blog writes this :

Some good points – but it certainly is much easier to get a guest blogger when you have a very popular blog, right?

Now i think you’ll get the idea. Guest bloggers can be useful especially if you’re running a popular blog on the blogosphere and of course they also lining up to write on your blog even if your not asking for it ..

    Actually i was surprised when i saw a referer coming from problogger site. I didnt know this post will bring Darren Rowse attention :D

    As an addition, actually i agree with Aim low, because i dont think there’s anyone that want to be a guest blogger at this blog :(

    Congratulations, you got a
    personal response from Darren
    ! ;)

    And quite a good one. Personally, I would go for ways 2 and 3: Aim ‘Low’, and Look for Networkers.
