Guest Post Day

Listen up, 5th March 2010 shall be Guest Post Day.

Guest posting is a great way for you to put your writing in front of a new audience and gain new readers, it’s a tried and tested technique in increasing a blog’s audience – and it’s fun too!

Here’s how it will work;

1. Submit yourself by leaving a comment on this post with your blog name before midday on Monday.

Update: Please use keyword ‘aqua’ in comment so that I can find any entries that go to spam. Ta

2. Return here tuesday and watch the ‘televised draw’ and see who you’ve been matched with.

3. Contact that blogger and arrange for a way to swap posts by email and by what time etc…

4. Write your BEST POST (let’s face it, your dross isn’t gonna gain you any new readers so put your best out there people) and give it to your blog swap partner.

5. Everyone post the guest posts on Friday 5th March.

Easy, yah?

Post suggestions – funny story, recipe, craft activity, ‘how to’

Okay, submit yourself below in the comments (don’t forget to include your blog name! you can leave your twitter @ too if you wish) and then spread the word…. the more the merrier!!

  30. Little Mummy says:

    Luschka – Ultimtately it’s up to you and your partner to negotiate the terms of the guest posting, and obviously you don’t have to post anything you don’t think is appropriate, it’s your blog after all.

  31. cartside says:

    Why not. I’ll probably get a block when having to write a “good” post for someone else’s blog, but never one not to try something new! So I’m in. twitter: @cartside aqua

  32. Great idea, Aqua, am so excited to meet new bloggers!

  33. Eeek, somehow I can’t even get my comment right, keeps disappearing! Looking forward to it, thanks, Aqua

  35. I will pay you a week’s worth of compliments if you DON’T let Rosie within breathing distance of my blog.

  36. Nickie says:

    Maybe if she let IJ write the post for her you’d relent, Tara?

  37. MrsW says:

    Oops forgot aqua (sounds like a “safe” word hahaha!)

  38. T-J Hughes says:

    What a fab AQUA idea, especially for newbies who’re looking for advice, comments and followers! Count me in! Thanks

  39. Sam says:

    I didn’t read the bit about adding aqua so I thought everyone had some secret society with a codeword or that AQUA stood for something,like rofl, such as A Quite Unusual Answer?

    Anyway, I *love* aqua and would love to have a go, although I think the only people I ‘know’ are Karin and Sandy :/

    Sam ( @samthewlis )

  40. Antonia says:

    I’m ‘aqua’ up for it
    @antoniachitty on twitter
