5 Tips To Be An Absurdly Prolific Guest Poster

March 4, 2018
Peacock I saw during my evening walk in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Look at those feathers.

 

Proof’s in ‘da guest posting presence.

 

I could pat myself on the back like a blogging buffoon (or be as proud as the peacock above; chap I saw during my evening walk in Thailand) but; I love what I do, and evidence is pretty apparent in the blogging tips niche. Guest posting wise.

 

1000 plus guesties to date; 500 plus on Blogging Tips alone.

 

How did I become the omnipresent demi-god (but demi-god-ing for good, just omnipresent as a DG….no not Dolce and Gabanna, but Demi-God-ery) of guest posting?

 

Read below.

 

But before we hop in, grasp these benefits of guest posting:

 

  • fun way to befriend rocking bloggers; making blogging buddies is about the most rewarding aspect of being prolific
  • fun way to help a large group of folks intrigued by your writing style and thirsty for your blogging help
  • get mondo backlink juice; Google Likey prolific guest posters
  • as effective as tossing salt over shoulder thrice for blogging success (unless Himalayan salt)
  • increased blog traffic, profits, online presence
  • fab strategy for building strong bonds with readers through your blogging niche

 

As the birds chirp beside the forest here in Thailand – seriously, I did see that peacock yesterday during my evening walk – let’s dive in.

 

1: Double F Word

 

No potty mouf now. Although I’m always apt.

 

Fun. Freedom.

 

Before you do anything, ya needs an intent. Holding a fun, freeing intent pulls you through enjoyable, exciting, scary, fearful, loving, seismic emotions.

 

This is by far the key tip because most bloggers never write a guest post due to fear. Fear wins in their minds. Fun and freedom exits stage left. No guest posting.

 

Double F fear. With fun and freedom.

 

Pick your fun, freeing driver for guest posting. I love circling the globe and helping people blog. I love showing images of arrogant, strutting peacocks spied during evening walks. So I felt the fear of guest posting (criticism, rejection, failure, waste of time), released it, and dove into a prolific guest posting campaign.

 

2: Hone Your Writing Skills

 

Guest post all over the place in your niche by becoming a skilled writer.

 

Open a Word document. Write 1000 words today. Every day, after. Just for practice.

 

Write about sea slugs or why Cheese Its are as addictive as chocolate, or crack, or sweet Thai snacks (seriously though) or just write about your niche.

 

Write, get clear, gain confidence and gain knowing you can guest post on any blog, in the world.

 

3: Put Effort into Building Connections

 

You do not “get connected.”

 

This implies passivity. Which is pure bullshit.

 

Nobody does connecting for you. You do the connecting, through service.

 

I gave years of my life to:

 

  • promoting top bloggers on social media
  • mentioning top bloggers on my blog
  • helping top bloggers however I could help them

 

without looking for a darn thing in return.

 

These folks befriended me; they saw I was interested in them, and not interested in what they could do for me.

 

Trust grew. Guest post invites flew my way with the super sonic speed of Rodan (Monarch reference).

 

For months, then years, help top bloggers. Ask for nothing in return.

 

Follow tip #2 to increase your writing skills. Allow blogging friendships to blossom. Gain guest post invites. Become a prolific guest poster.

 

4: Stick to Your Niche, Capiche

 

“Hey Ryan; I saw you guest posting on a bunch of top blogging tips blogs. Wanna guest post on my blogging tips blog?”

 

This has happened at least once during my 10 year online career. Folks perceived me to be an expert because I guest posted on top blogs in the blogging tips niche.

 

I landed guesties on other blogging tips blogs and rocking writing blogs like World Writers Hub through specialization.

 

Stick mainly to one niche. Build your name. Gain guest post invites from other bloggers in the niche. Become prolific, guest post style.

 

5: Do Not Quit

 

I believe in you.

 

I know you are becoming a prolific guest poster. Even if you’ve yet to see it.

 

Goodness; I spent months getting clear on guest posting. This was after being a decent writer with a big, loyal friend network.

 

Fear bitch-slapped me. My tip #1 was weak as an earthworm-jellyfish hybrid trying to bench press 500 pounds.

 

But I doubled-down on my fun and freedom, allowing my love of helping folks and circling the globe to dominate my fears.

 

Here I am today.

 

Guys, do not give up. Persist. Become a skilled writer through daily practice. Connect yourself by generously serving top bloggers daily without asking for anything.

 

Pay your dues.

 

Become a prolific guest poster.

  7. Hey Ryan!

    The universe has spoken to me through your words here.

    Seriously.

    I felt as if you were speaking to me directly in tip number 5 the second line to be more specific.

    I have done a few guest posts here and there, but nothing big as you have. So, ever since I came across your blog here and got to know you ‘ve become more inspired to do more guest blogging. I’m doing a lot more guest blogging than I have ever done so before in all of my time blogging online.

    I gotta say, I’m having a lot of fun doing it and I’m loving the people I have been able to help, so far. That alone makes me very happy. I want to say thank you so much for lighting this fire in me to do more and help more and have even more fun blogging all over the place.

    You, Sir, are a true inspiration in this blogging world.

    By the way, that is a beautiful peacock! Nice picture!

    Thank you so much for all the value you always share!

    My best regards to you and that peacock! 😀

    Hi Ryan,

    I see you use a different writing tone while writing on your blog and I’m loving it!

    Fun and freedom. What you said is absolutely right. Most people don’t write guest posts because their fear controls their action. When you get rid of it, and when you truly find fun and freedom at what you do (you’re already into that track), things get much easier and your work will become your play.

    Here comes the question: how do you find fun and freedom Ryan? Any tips? I know there are only few people who can actually write hundreds of guest posts like you but what impresses me is the fun word that you always talk about and you are always seems to have a lot of fun with blogging. So I highly appreciate your thoughts on it.

    And the last part: don’t give up and quit too early. That’s the common pattern we all notice especially from the beginner bloggers who always are in a hurry to get things done. They want quick results and never spend serious time in what they do. If you’re not aiming for long term results, you should not think about profitable blogging. It’s as simple as that.

    Great tips Ryan, keep rocking.
