EB Friday Hotlist: More on Guest Blogging

Two weeks ago I wrote about how guest blogging can benefit your business.  If you missed the article, you can check it out here. I put my own advice to use and pitched my Tumblr article from July to Jonathan, the very approachable CEO of Zibbet, and landed the guest blog opportunity.  I reworked the article and it was published on the Zibbet blog this week.  When you check out the article, you'll notice a small blurb with my information and a link to my blog and my shop are at the top.  Remember, depending on the traffic the blog you post on gets, that little piece of web "real estate" can bring real traffic to your blog and your shop.  I hope you'll seriously consider taking advantage of this aspect of blogging.

Now, I was contacted by Ann Smarty on Creating the Hive (one of my recommended sites) as a result of my last article on guest blogging, and she shared her site with me.  It's called My Blog Guest and is dedicated to connecting guest bloggers and their articles with blogs that want to host their content.  Limited membership is free and that's the level I recommend for the average craft blogger.  The best feature is the forums where you can announce your availability to guest post or post requests for guest content.  Only one forum section is limited to premium members, so you will still be able to make great use of this area.  Definitely check this one out if you're interested in getting or sharing blog content.

And just in case you're curious, the traffic to my Zibbet shop this week is up 190%.  It does work!  Happy blogging!

Until next time,
