Blogging Tips

Blogger Outreach

My Blog Guest
I highly recommend this service as a way to find people to publish your content; MBG provides a civilised and supportive platform for blogger outreach, and best of all, both parties benefit and both keep some control. Register to provide guest blog posts, or to use other authors’ posts on your own blog.

Blogger LinkUp
A free to use newsletter service, allowing publishers to find guest bloggers, and authors to find blogs. Sign up to receive an occasional circulation list of blog requests, ordered by category. I find the quality of blogs seeking content can be mixed, but the emails are worth receiving.
