Guest Post with No Firewall

One of the most repeated questions I got from my blog readers and friends is:

How I managed to get a lot of guest posting on our blog?!

I usually reply back with an advice or two, and I wish I can hand a better experience to those who are looking to increase the average of guest posts on their blogs, but it’s really hard thing to do -sorry to disappoint you- but I am trying to give you a real and honest advice here to help you get a guest post, and it will not make any sense to you if I tell you “do this and that”, then you go happy to implement my tips with hight expectations thinking you will get tons of guest posts to your blog tomorrow!

I am sorry, but it will never happen this way!

I must mention that title of my post is inspired by Sajib who wrote a nice post about FamousBloggers.net and me as the person who runs the blog.  I am wondering why that post has no comments? is it because everyone already knows enough about me? or because I share lots of my ideas that no one has any question to ask me anymore?!

Guest Posting is a Gift from Heaven!

Sometimes when I think about the whole thing, I wonder what could happen if guest blogging doesn’t exists in our world, I will be then blogging lonely and life will not be so excited like it should be, so I am really thankful for the idea and who ever invited “guest blogging”, I would even love it if I can track the first guest post in history of blogging, maybe I will have a chance to thank that person personally, but .. well! I think it’s so hard to track it, do you know who is the inventor of guest blogging? plz let me know!

Although, I didn’t know anything about guest posting before I started FamousBloggers.net, I was just planning to create a multi-author blog that has high passionated blogging team, then the idea expanded to include guest blogging, the good thing is FB was ready for it, and this made me lucky, not really smart!

Latter, I decided to take the chance, and work more harder to enhance the performance of the blog, I did every possible way

Inviting Bloggers to Guest Post?

Certainly not, even in the very early days, I was not inviting anyone to guest post on my blog so widely, as I said before, I didn’t even know that guest posting is something I can do, and what I did was inviting others to join our blogging team, to write every week here on FamosuBloggers.net!

Some bloggers was sending me emails asking me what’s the advantage of writing for another blog, others was asking what they will get in return if they join our blogging team, I was shy to talk about to much about highlighting bloggers, giving them backlinks or drive traffic to their blogs, it was not true at that time for a starting blog, and we all hear this kind of stuff, and it’s not convincing anyone, probably it was not enough reason for me to invite anyone to join our blogging team and dedicate a few hours of their week for it, I mean.. for me it doesn’t make sense!

I was thinking they are silly people, because my idea was so clear, I wanted to create a blog to compete, I was thinking working together, I was hoping to rank #1 in our blogging niche, but I must say they were blind, they didn’t see the advantages of working together, then we can enjoy results of being part of a strong blog and community, and we all know it’s extremely hard thing to achieve if any blogger try to grow alone!

Only a few bloggers responded to my calls, they are located in our FB about page right now!

Here we are my friends! I can say that we already made a full of success history if we look behind, we are living great moments of victory at present, and we will create a bright future TOGETHER!

Guest Posting with No Firewall

Yes! I’ve removed guest posting firewall, I am spreading our blog’s arms wide open to anyone who is seeking a blog hug!

How many newspapers out there publishing lies and fake news everyday?

And how many blogs and websites has low quality content?

I know.. I know.. It’s my blog and I have to protect it and everything, but who am I to judge others?

Let the real Judges -blog readers- speak their minds, let them decide which article is good and which is bad!

My task is not stopping you from guest posting, my task is to help you on getting the opportunity to talk and share! If you wrote something that has no value or you don’t have a strong opinion, then readers will cut you to little pieces, it’s all yours, it’s your mistake! You will never hurt the blog you are writing for, you are hurting only yourself! (Do you have a different opinion? Share it!)

And just to let you know, the most annoying thing ever happen is when someone guest post, and never reply to comments or interact with comments, I would remove their post completely from the blog, but unfortuinatly it’s something I can NOT do! I only can take a decision NOT to publish any guest posts submitted by them anymore!

Guest Posting resources

Here is a few guest posts resources and tips I would like to share, I also included some other useful read on what we did here on FB to enhance the blog, and our way to connect with our readers:

Using Logic to get a Guest Post

So, if you think I am inviting bloggers to guest post on FB, you are mistaken, it’s not something I really do, it’s something that I ask when there is a chance or general talk, but I do invite people by another logic, it’s the logic of making this blog more comfort for them, results are much greater. It feels good when bloggers ask you to guest post, and they are worried of not being accepted!

So, what’s your logic? and how you get bloggers to guest post on your blog?

    Great post man i Love the resources.
    I’ve been blogging for over a year now. Maybe it’s time for me to start allowing guest posting on my blog and become a guest poster myself.///

  • John October 15, 2010, 9:35 am

    Guest blogging is a great way to get your name out there more. It also give you more cred in the blogging community. I hope my blog will get up to the point I can ask for guest bloggers soon.

    if your considering marketing your website indirectly then Guest Posting is compulsory. Very excited that you are starting a bloggers community.

  • Manz September 24, 2010, 4:37 pm

    ” feels good when bloggers ask you to guest post, and they are worried of not being accepted!” < I fit into that category… you talk about quality of posts, and I think that if anyone approached you to guest post there must be respect and admiration for what they've seen on the site. Therefore, efforts to ensure the post is of value is very high. At least, that's what I found… not only did I want the post to be good for my own benefit like you outline, there was a massive drive to keep it relevant to the site.

  • Caleb September 21, 2010, 5:35 pm

    I chose to guest post here for three main reasons:
    1 the Submit Your Article page is written well especially the very first paragraph ;)
    2 the theme design and flow of this site is attractive and something to aspire to
    3 the Alexa ranking along with high number of comments which equates to big traffic of course!

    I still haven’t gotten into the guest blogging scene. No guest posts on my blog, and I haven’t posted on other blogs yet. Maybe it’s the lack of time…probably it’s more about the unknown. I guess I just need to try it and see.

  • Shiva September 20, 2010, 11:36 pm

    I think Famousbloggers is one of the top guest blogging blog in the Internet as far as I know. A place where all people who want to do guest blogging gets equal chances. And as far as getting guest posts on your own blog, one needs to be quite adept at building relationships with other bloggers and your own blog readers, I think that way you can get a lot of guest posts. Another way can be by MyBlogGuest :)

      Yes, I’ve build some great relationships, this will allow me to help anyone decided to guest post here even more!

      I wonder where we can take FamousBloggers.net in the future!

  • AJ September 20, 2010, 7:24 pm

    You have definitely created an amazing community here. Lots and lots of guest posts – most bloggers have trouble getting 1 guest post on their blog. But here is an idea for you…how about a blog where all guest bloggers take a cut of the overall blog earnings based on the traffic their posts generate.
    AJ recently posted..Unite- Business WordPress ThemeMy Profile

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 8:56 pm

      Hey AJ, I actually thought about, a fast and easy way to do this is by integrating Google AdSense revenue share, but it won’t be profitable for guest bloggers, I have experienced low earnings with all sites that provide this option, real earnings will come after 100s of posts by same author!

      I could setup this, and attract more writers, but at the end they will earn nothing really! I know the revenue of this blog from AdSense still very low because it’s niche! not enough to share!

  • Jeevan Jacob John September 20, 2010, 6:53 pm

    Hello Hesham,

    I like your title very much. I saw your article when you published it yesterday. Since I didn’t have time, I didn’t comment on your post. Anyway, today when I checked your post, I am amazed that you already have 50+ comments. The comments is evident of your reputation and power. From My viewpoint, I would like to Guest post on your blog, since it provides me with exposure to more readers.

    Even if I have Guest blogging in my site, I haven’t had much of Guest articles (like 3 or 4 I think). I think it is due to the fact that I am using Blogger.com. Anyway, I hope to switch to WP as soon as I am done with School. (Maybe this year itself, since I am a senior).

    Guest Blogging is a powerful tool. And You, Hesham has used it wisely. I would say that people have to learn from your successful story.

    Anyway, Thanks for the article, Hesham.

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 9:23 pm

      I can’t really credit myself for the title as it was inspired by someone else I’ve mentioned that in my post :)

      To have a good amount of guest posts (I think ) you need to move to WP, get a good design that fit, and maybe organize some blogging contest. (of course this is not all it takes, but something important to consider)

      I wish you the best, and many thanks for your kind words Jeevan

      • Jeevan Jacob John September 21, 2010, 9:45 am

        Anyways, That’s a good title :)

        I think so to. And I hope I can move to WP. Since there are lot of contests out there, I will keep on trying. Just recently, Brian lauched one. I hope I will win one so that I can move to WP.

        Thanks and Welcome,

        Jeevan

    “If you wrote something that has no value or you don’t have a strong opinion, then readers will cut you to little pieces, it’s all yours, it’s your mistake! You will never hurt the blog you are writing for, you are hurting only yourself!”

    Very dangerous advice buddy, and speaking honestly, quite backward. Absolutely it can hurt you, the blog owner; I don’t understand how you think it can’t.

    It’s your blog man. You own it. Everything on it reflects back on you in one way or another.

    If there are crappy articles on YOUR blog, whether you wrote them or not, can easily come back and bite you on the ass. ;)

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 4:22 pm

      I respect your opinion Dennis , and I know it’s extremely dangerous, and in most cases we are not safe from jerks!

      I have been thinking a lot about the definition of “Quality”, I simply found out that time worth more than quality, this is the business of today! although I am not saying that I accept whatever kind of posts, but I like to give the opportunity if I can to someone who need it, I also talked about editing a few blog posts to prepare it for publishing, this means I don’t really publish a 100% crap :)

      Yes.. it’s my blog.. but as Harsh said in a comment below, it’s a community!

  • Joe Boyle September 20, 2010, 3:56 pm

    This is positively, without a doubt, the best post I’ve ever read when it comes to guest posting. Every detail was stitched with golden tips on how to get many guest posts to your site, something I’ve been longing for.

    From how you worded it, you sound like you accept EVERY guest post, is that correct? I could see the potential of a spam-attack or something like that. I guess if a ton of people say “Get this crap off of my screen”, though, you could always remove it. But I think that’s a great way to get the community active. It’s kind of like a SMALL town-community. They all help each-other out, but if someone is doing wrong, they don’t hesitate to kick them out.

    I’d love to just accept any guest post, but I believe in quality. I’m certainly not saying your website doesn’t provide quality content, but all it takes is a post from someone that offends x amount of people, and your screwed. All it takes it a post that is completely wrong. All it takes is one slip, and you’re in a bit of trouble.

    Excellent post.

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 9:38 pm

      Hey Joe,

      I don’t accept every guest post, but I would love to fix problems if I can! no chance for spam attack because I check the person who blog here and if I have a doubt I talk to them by email for some time before approving their account or publish their posts, this give me a chance to start a relation with the blogger who wants to guest post, some times this relationship becomes a good friendship!

      There is always a solution for any problem, here comes experience, and some times I ask our team for advice, this is why it’s always good to work together.

      P.S. if you know a meaning of quality, let me know!

  • Harsh Agrawal September 20, 2010, 3:29 pm

    One reason Which I see why you get lots of comment because you believe in giving love to all… Unlike many blogs with guest posting open, they don’t give enough platform to show guest blogger brand which you don’t miss.. More over your own personal touch to every blogger make them come back to your blog…
    I should stop calling Famousblogger as your blog and rather consider it as network or community blog .. Is int it Hesham? :)
    Harsh Agrawal recently posted..Answers WordPress Theme- Make Money on Auto Pilot ModeMy Profile

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 7:18 pm

      Harsh, one thing that I must mention is publish 3 or 4 posts everyday could lower comments!

      You probably notice we publish an average of 1 blog post everyday which gives more exposure for the author! but I want to increase daily publishing average! I am afraid this will lower comments! should I give it a try?

      We.. yeah .. lol we could call it a community or a network blog.. more enhancements are on the way buddy!

      Many thanks Harsh!

      • Harsh Agrawal September 21, 2010, 1:11 am

        From my experience I will say publish 1-2 post a day.. Since your blog is hardcore Blogging blog, People would like to read and add comments.. I used to or still publish 3-4 posts a day which is bad..and it actually lowers down the comment..but If I publish 2 posts a day it actually works for every1…
        I would suggest it’s better limit to 2 post a day.. 1 by you and other 1 by guest poster.. This is something which I’m also gng to implement…..

        • Hesham September 21, 2010, 1:21 am

          Thank you Harsh!

          Yes.. I agree with you , it’s also not easy to promote 3 or 4 posts everyday through social media especially when most guest bloggers don’t really help with that!

          1 & 1 is a good idea, this in case I have time to blog everyday :)

          • Harsh Agrawal September 21, 2010, 1:26 am

            So in that case you can publish 2 guest posts a day.. This will eventually your guest poster..as they don’t have to stand in queue…!!!
            One reason I publish many posts a day is because of guest poster…as they don’t have to wait a lot..but this strategy is wrong…
            Was studying problogger and dailyblogtips and realize it’s better to have 1 or max of 2 article for blogs like yours and mine!!
            Harsh Agrawal recently posted..Answers WordPress Theme- Make Money on Auto Pilot ModeMy Profile

            • Hesham September 21, 2010, 1:41 am

              That makes sense, I agree.. stand in queue is not good, but what’s worse that that is to pass a post without giving it enough chance and promotion!

              I always tell bloggers who are in a hurry, or those who think I will publish their post once it’s submitted to wait because it’s better for both us!

              Thanks dude, I will follow this way.. also this will allow us to take care of other stuff, our job is not to only blog ;)

  • bryan September 20, 2010, 8:32 am

    hesham, you’ve certainly created a big community here with all the guest posting here. I think there is plenty of content to be proud about here and plenty of bloggers to follow too. I think besides allowing people to guest blog, you’ve also helped new bloggers to find a blogging community and I think right here they can really start getting some help and be heard.

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 10:13 pm

      Bryan, I myself enjoy meeting all those bloggers who guest post here and build relationship with them, it’s really amazing, I hope we help newer bloggers for real!

      Many thanks for stopping by, enjoy your time buddy

  • Alex Sysoef September 20, 2010, 6:37 am

    On my blog I enforce one simple rule for Guest Posting – if it is not relevant to my readers -it will not get published. Simple and effective.

    While I agree we should be wide open for guest posts – it has to serve your readers first and foremost. People come to read our blogs because of the content we provide and perhaps some personal attraction but content is still the king!
    Alex Sysoef recently posted..WordPress Backup Plugins I RecommendMy Profile

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 4:53 pm

      Alex, I know a few blogs who went for simplifying their guest posting roles, they discovered how many opportunity they were missing by setting hard roles!!

      I just have this feeling that I don’t know what is good or quality content, it’s really hard to figure it out before publishing, more easier to know after article goes live and find out what readers think of it!

      P.S. good idea.. relevancy could be enough! well done.

  • Melinda September 20, 2010, 6:36 am

    It’s such an advantage having guest posts to get unique takes on the same subject. Something you can’t offer solo. I had my first guest post on my blog a few weeks ago and was thrilled to add another person’s helpful tips. A variety in voice and ideas makes a site so much more valuable. You’ve got an amazing thing going here Hesham. I send my clients to this site often because there is such a wealth of good information for new bloggers.

      I get a lot of emails everyday from my friends and readers asking for advice, I do the exact thing, I remember the article that could help them and send a link, even here on the FB or any of my friend’s blog!

    Hi Hesham,
    Get the honour to guest blog on Famousbloggers can help many small but good bloggers to get new readers and idea. My problem is that I only can write about SEO, and it is always is to high technique and complicated so the most people don’t understand it. Instead true I so much as possible to give help and advice in blog post about SEO.

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 3:29 am

      Oh! Lennart I understand, yes.. some times it hard to explain all what you want to say in a blog post!

      Well.. I like SEO, probably videos is much better!

      • benin September 20, 2010, 11:30 am

        Hi Hesham,

        What a powerful article. I love the way you have broken things down.

        If you wrote something that has no value or you don’t have a strong opinion, then readers will cut you to little pieces, it’s all yours, it’s your mistake! You will never hurt the blog you are writing for, you are hurting only yourself!

        Though those words are something had never actually occurred to me before reading this post I can honestly say that when my mind was made the decision to guest blog, I simultaneously made a conscious decision to reserve only my absolute best stuff for the bloggers who are hosting my guest posts.

        This is the least that we, as guest bloggers, can do to show our appreciation to anyone who is willing to share the love by accepting our guest posts.

          This is a good way for success!

  • Isabel Rodrigues - Pro Blogger Journey September 19, 2010, 11:05 pm

    Nice one Hesham. Guest Posting is indeed very important especially if your considering marketing your website indirectly. However this does not mean you compromise on the content quality just for the same of website traffic. I would rather not submit a guest post to some one’s blog if I feel its not 100% top quality.

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 1:38 am

      Isabel, guest blogging made a a revolution in marketing!

      So.. I completely agree with you, bloggers should submit their best content to a higher traffic blog for example to gain benefit otherwise they will get rejected or no attention!

  • Jarret September 19, 2010, 10:44 pm

    Hesham, thanks again for letting me guest post on your blog. It was a great experience. My blogs don’t generate nearly as much discussion as Famous Bloggers, so it was fun to write a post that generated so many thoughtful comments. Nothing feels worse in blogging than feeling like no one’s actually read a post that you’ve taken time to write.

    I didn’t tell you this yet, but I also learned a ton about being a good blog host for people who submit guest posts on my site. I’ve only written a handful of guest blog posts–We blog better, FB, Blog Engage, and a few others in health niches. Some people who allow guest posting are not as good at replying to emails / requests. Many sites don’t have an active community or generate much in the way of comments or discussion, so it takes the fun out of the experience.

    Not sure what plugin you use, but I got the idea of using a Members plugin to set role permissions for guest authors from your site. I use the Members plugin by Justin Tadlock which does the job quite well.

    Having experienced both sides of guest blogging has definitely helped me both with being a better guest author, but also a better host for guest blog posts. Whenever I guest post, I make sure to reply to all of the comments (or almost) and promote the post with social media. Many of my guest authors do the same and the ones that don’t well… I agree with you there.

      The member role plugin will help in the long term on organizing your work on the blog, you catch a great idea!

      Most of bloggers who don’t reply to comments are paid bloggers, this is what I don’t like about them, they are not like you and me Jarret, we didn’t build our blogs for this!

      Many thanks my friend, and I wish you a bright blogging future!

        I learned that now that writing a Guest Post is not an Art, the thing you can call an Art is following up your content or article, doesn’t matter it is your official post or guest post.
        And to be very honest with all the readers here in my I learned this thing from Hesham:) that how to follow your posts or guest posts, before that I was little careless about my posts as far as the follow up and commenting as concern.

        And thank you one again Hesham for allowing me to write one more guest post.

        • Hesham September 20, 2010, 4:31 pm

          Ben, you have shared a great point that most of guest bloggers don’t get it!

          Np .. you are a good friend :)

    Once a blog gets to be your size, I imagine you won’t have to do anything more than put up a link that says ‘guest post.’ But for smaller blogs, resources like MyBlogGuest and SeededBuzz work well.

    Smaller blogs have trouble getting people to write for them, just like you did in the beginning. It’s just the ebb and flow of blog growth, I guess!

      I agree! the blog is on auto pilot right now ;)

      But you know Tia, it’s really easy to get to the top, but hard to stay there! whenever I go there is no yet a place for me to rest and relax! I hope soon!

    When I first submitted my guest post I never expected it to be up. Honestly. And anyone seeing lots of guest posts being published on a regular basis can simply guess there is no firewall. :D

    About my blog, actually, people read my blog but they hardly comment. Sitting in the back end of my site I see them coming, reading and leaving. Unfortunately, I only got silent readers. I’m yet to find out a way to turn them into commentators and engage them into a discussion.

    Thank you for linking back to the post. :)

      Sajib, I don’t publish whatever content by the meaning of no firewall lol but maybe I think different about the submitted posts, you can say I think with media mind!

      I am sure that people read your blog, don’t worry about that, you are doing great work, give people as much luv as you can and you will get to the top soon!

      I enjoyed the read, and thank you for the inspiration, without you I couldn’t write this post!

    Hi Hesham,

    When it comes to guest posts, you are the king!

    I know of no other blogger who allows anyone to guest post on his blog. As you noted, it’s survival of the fittest on Famousbloggers. If anyone is not up to par, they’re getting ripped to shreds ;)

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful opportunity. I know my guest post is deep in the que and can’t wait for it to come up.

    Ryan

      I’d have to agree with you Ryan! Hesham has guest blogging sewn up!

      I think the transparency in the content that has been allowed -by letting anyone guest post, has given a lot of new bloggers an opportunity to be seen, and has built a massive community!

      Well done Hesham!

        Community is great because all the good people I’ve meet so far! it’s really amazing feeling!

        I also would like to add something I didn’t mention in my post, I some times get posts that has no meaning at all lol

        If I like the blogger and I really feel he/she is needing help, I usually edit the post in a way or another to help them out, it’s better for them to see the difference after post is published, I only spend a few minutes editing a post that will certainly get rejected if submitted to another blog!

        Thank Tom, you are the man!

    • Hesham September 20, 2010, 12:19 am

      You are real supporter Ryan , thank you so much for your kind words, this is more than I deserve man!

      I will do my post to get all posts published this week as I am really exciting!

      Great day, and till we meet on your post :)

  • GreenLava September 19, 2010, 7:29 pm

    Great post! Love the resources.
    I’ve been blogging for over a year now. Maybe it’s time for me to start allowing guest posting on my blog and become a guest poster myself.

      Glad you like it!

      I agree it’s a perfect time for guest posting, I would do it but I feel stuck in here managing the blog :)

      Have a great time, and thanks for stopping by!

  • Henway September 19, 2010, 7:22 pm

    I usually find people to guest blog just by simply interacting with them. I comment on their blog, chat with thru Twitter, and just share things via email. It’s important to establish a connection weeks or months before you want to ask them to guest blog. it’s like finding a job, you build your network before you need it.

      This is good way Henway, if you connect you don’t even need to ask of insist, I like this way of thinking

  • Karl Foxley September 19, 2010, 6:07 pm

    Hey Hesham,

    I’m glad to see the continual rise of Famous Bloggers and the other ventures that you have branched out into; you my friend are a ‘Famous Blogger’. You only have to ask the legions of readers and bloggers here to see that this is so. :)

    • Hesham September 19, 2010, 10:29 pm

      lol I didn’t mean to be! also I am sure of the great respond of my friends, it’s really respectful relationship we have here Karl!

      Many thanks my friend for the kind words, naaah.. this is to much than I deserve!

      • Karl Foxley September 21, 2010, 11:32 am

        I absolutely agree Hesham, without the respectful relationships that are being created here you’d be hard-pushed to have the level of success Famous Bloggers is experiencing. It because of these relationships that guest bloggers here receive such a tremendous amount of benefit from sharing their great content; hence why I simply had to write about Famous Bloggers in my recent post. :)

    Hey Hesham,

    I’m really bad at guest posting for more excuses than just one. I feel the pressure when trying to compose for someone else’s blog which is fine, but can also be paralyzing.

    I think what you’re trying to do here, building a community of bloggers, is a great project.

    • Hesham September 19, 2010, 5:39 pm

      I understand that feeling, sometimes it’s stressing!

      My advice is not to write for any blog, just write for yourself like normal, and if you like your post and think it’s awesome, then find another blog to publish it :)
