Here’s another valuable way to attract readers to your blog: guest posting.
When you let a fellow blogger guest posts for your blog, you open your blog to new readers. Your guest writer has a blog community behind him or her. When you allow a fellow blogger to hold court in your own home, guess who’ll be knocking at the door to check out what’s up. Yes, it’s the guest writer’s friends, online buddies, fans and hangers-on.
The good thing about this is that the benefits are mutual. You both help each other out.
And it’s not all about the return on investment for the blog owner and the guest writer. Think of the friendship being forged and cemented. These buddies will be there for you when the going gets rough farther down the road. I just hope you hold your end of the bargain when your blogging buddies need you.
So what’s the latest? Let me invite you to check out the guest posts of our own friends:
1. Holly of Do I Have to Spell It Out? has a guest post in Elmot’s Ani-mo: Don’t Tell Me I Don’t Value My Family!
2. Dan Miranda of Command Your Time has appeared in Darren’s TwiTip: How to Avoid Making Twitter a Procrastination Tool
3. Sean of WriterDad has guest posted for diTesco: Make Money Online the Get Rich Slowly Way
4. George of Tumblemoose has featured Sharon Hall: Six Tips to Avoid Being an Overworked Writer

And please greet my great friend Roy. It’s his birthday today. Happy Birthday, Roy!
