A few years ago very few bloggers write guest posts, and very few people really knew the importance of guest blogging. Now, guest blogging is the rage, and almost every blogger is trying to get published on other blogs. The problem is that a lot of bloggers keep on trying but find it extremely difficult to get published on the blogs of their choice, and as a result make the conclusion that guest blogging is difficult.

The reality is that guest blogging is easy, and if you have the right approach, it can add tens of thousands of visitors to your site and thousands of dollars to your pocket. If you’re looking for tips on writing guest posts that don’t get rejected, this article is for you.

Make Your Content a Priority – Content is Always King

The first step you should take when trying to write a guest post that will always be accepted is to focus on your content. You have probably heard the saying that content is king at least twice, but the harsh reality is that it is completely true. While having a lot of tactics and a great approach can help you, ultimately, focusing on your content is the only key to ensuring that your content is never rejected.

Every blogger is concerned about the success of his blog and the welfare of his readers, and very few bloggers can reject a well-written blog post. If you keep on working on your content so as to ensure it is perfect and evergreen you will be able to get your guest post published on any blog of your choice.

Focus on Building a Relationship with the Blog Owner First

While this is completely optional, it can help you get your guest post published on almost any blog of your choice.

The reality is that every great blog or website is controlled by somebody, and no matter how difficult it is to get published on a blog, if you have a relationship with the right person you will find it extremely easy to get your guest post published.

The best way to ensure your guest post is always accepted and published fast is to start building a relationship with the owner of the blog you plan to target first. Make sure you’re always on the lookout for ways to help the blogger, and with time, it is even the blogger that will ask you to come and write a guest post.

  • I’m now become an addict to your writing Oni. Another great article by you. All your article on guest blogging helps me learn some extra techniques. Thanks!

  • Nice post Onibalusi. Not long ago I was chatting with another blogger and he mentioned he wasn’t happy with a blog draft he’d put together. He said, “I guess I can always use it for a guest post”. That’s a huge mistake in my opinion and I told him so. We should offer our best work as guest posts, not second rate content we reject on our own blogs. I just thought I’d share that with you.

  • Very informatic post oni… I liked the way you have written it. Most of us forget a basic thing to edit and organize our guest posts. which may bring a bad user experience. I did that mistake and realized it. Well, thanks for sharing man 😉

  • nice one again! kuddos Oni

  • Thanks, I will start making use of this

  • Hi Oni,

    First off, I would like to thank you so much for this post and Blogotech for making it available to us.

    This is an exceptional quality article and I can tell that time went into it to write it.

    I like the methods you outlined for making sure that our attempts at guest blogging are not rejected.

    I think at the end of the day it all pretty much boils down to providing exceptional value to the blog owner and building a relationship.

    It is so very important to reach out to the blog owner first and build a relationship with that blog owner before even offering your guest post to be published on their blog.

    This way they don’t see you as just a freebie seeker but rather as a provider of quality content. I agree with you 100% that relationships have to be built first and then quality content should be offered as well.

    thanks again for such as exceptional post.

    warm regards,

    Alex Mensah
