My first ever Guest Post

guestpost

I recently posted my first ever guest post at comluv.com called 5 things I don’t miss about the good old days. A lot of other bloggers has told me that it was a great way to generate traffic to a new blog and to promote my blog on a blog that already receives a lot of traffic. So after got a good idea for a post I contacted Andy Bailey (the owner) from comluv.com and requested permission to be quest blogger in his community. I did not have to wait long before I received a mail that I was approved as a guest blogger. From that on there was no looking back, my first guest post was on the way. I made did some research found some nice pictures and in a couple of hours I have made my first guest post. I didn’t just send it on its way right away. I put it away for a day and the next day I read it for review and moved away some obvious mistakes I had made in the text. I submitted my post in my comluv dashboard and waited for it to be approved. When it was approved I received an e-mail with the date and time it was scheduled for release. The thing is that Andy does not just publish a guest post right away. He put then in a schedule and spread them out so all guest post get their minutes of fame. Instead of publishing 4 post in one day and none the next day the guest post are spread out so all guest bloggers have their post on the front page for a little week (depending on how many guest post there is of cause).

ComLuvNetwork

So what did it gave me to post my first guest post on comluv.com after one week:

  • I have received 49 comments so far (Including my own replies)
  • I got 14 visitors to my blog from the comluv community (according to Google Analytics)
  • I received 5 credits for posting my post that I can use on comluv.com
  • I got a number of backlinks to my own blog from comluv.com
  • Best of all my guest post is still there to work for me and my blog 🙂

By the way if you have not got the new CommentLuv 2.9 plugin you should go and get it for your own blog. It is free and I think it is a great plugin.

That was all from me for this time. I would like to hear about your guest posting experience. Have you been a guest blogger? Was it worth it? How are you considering in order finding the best blog for your guest posts?
