Blogs can be found by visiting sites which are related to your niche. Place a few comments and become comfortable with the sources on the blog. After building up a relationship with the owner of the blog offer your service when the owner is in a tight corner like a family holiday or period of ill health that you might find out by way of the blog or through personal communication outside the blog. You get to help a person doing this while making use of the moment to place your foot inside the door. Like searching for any employment opportunity watch for employment listings. At times certain websites will ask for guest bloggers to join their team. Try to land an opportunity, which would be up your street that can have a continuous stream of postings flowing out from your passion.
Guest blog opportunities can be found through the following websites. You can try to find opportunities, which would give you, guest blog invitations from journalists who need sources through helpareporter.com and then pitch for them. Bloggerlinkup.com offers you a registry to which you can add you name as well as place a message asking for opportunities for guest blogging. You could join a forum consultation with myblogguest.com and get engaged in discussions where messaged are often posted requesting for guest bloggers.
Guest Blogging not only allows you to establish authority on a subject but also gives you valuable back links for your website. Quality and uniqueness of the content are must for any guest blog post. Google.com can be extremely helpful finding varied guest blogging opportunities.
Another good way of finding a guest blog is to invite others to blog on your own website. The reciprocal thank you might be an invitation for you to be guest on their websites. Referrals could be very helpful too. Once you have done a guest blog spell for one owner and have grown in your relationship with him to the point of confidence ask him for a referral. This could be used with other guest blog website owners to get blogging opportunities.
Once you find what you think are the right opportunities a verification process is essential. Look for back links of your post to your own site or others sites. Good blogs gives you an author block or a byline so that readers begin to recognize your name. One aspect of verification is to check on the page ranking. Higher the page rank, the more it is respected. An important part of the verification is also to negotiate the compensation one is willing to share.
