Guest blogging has become one of the top notch things in this blogosphere. People are approaching more bloggers to write guest posts.
When you even think about writing a guest post for any blog, you should always learn its benefits.
But do you ever think if you’re capable or not?
There are many signs show that you’re not ready for guest blogging. People have their demands and if don’t fulfill those then it’s not a right time for you.
You should always try to find out the best blog whose audience, you can impress with your words.
People always dream about seeing their names on the famous blogs. But they forget that every platform has something to match.
Are You Ready To Contribute To Any Famous Blog As A Guest Blogger?
From the past few years, people are trying hard to carry their writing skills to get featured on the different blogs.
But there are a few bloggers who are really good with the guest blogging.
Let me point out some points which can make you realize that you’re not ready to write guest posts for anyone.
#1. Are You Qualified?
There are thousands of writers and every one of them is trying hard to reach the level of a professional writer.
Well, for a guest blog, are you the blogger who can vow your readers? It’s all about how you present yourself.
Can you manage your reader’s engagement?
To be a guest blogger, you should have the skills which can give you 100% results.
Most of the bloggers are not from the English background and that’s where they are lacking in. Many countries don’t have English as their native language from where you should embrace your writing skills.
Haven’t you heard of the power of practice? Well, keep practicing and try to embrace your skills.
#2. You Don’t Know How To Interact.
Before you jump in the guest blogging world, you should know that you’re going to come across a different audience.
All the blog authors expect their guests to have a friendly conversation with their readers. And if you can’t do that then sorry, you’re not ready for guest blogging.
People want someone who can make them feel like home. Don’t you feel good when someone reciprocates to your comments?
The readers are sensitive and you should be that person who can handle their emotions.
#3. You Are In the Rejection List.
This may sound odd but the truth is that bloggers don’t really into easy going decisions.
Maybe you’re in their rejection list. Every blog has its guest post guidelines and if you violating and you get rejected.
There are many guest post offer mistakes people make which directly send them into a black zone.
Before you even think about sending a guest post request, you should go through if the blog owner is accepting the guest posts or not.
Don’t just through a bunch of article in the face. Be patient and show some professionalism. Maybe you can first ask them.
#4. You Don’t Have A Good Reputation.
Most of the blog owners consider the guest blogger who is known in the blogosphere. No one wants an anonymous person to feature on the blog.
Would you accept a guest post request if someone from an unknown world sends you an email?
The first thing is to build your reputation.
- Meet some bloggers.
- Comment on their blogs.
- Share their content.
- Engage in a few conversations.
After having a human relationship with the blog owners, your chances of getting accepting would increase.
And if you can’t do that then you’re not ready for guest blogging.
#5. You’re A Quickie Person.
Have you ever realized that in this blogosphere, people have been working hard for a long time? Then how can you expect to be the best in a few months?
Guest bloggers are accepted only if they have a strong positive vibe for their future.
No blogger would allow someone who writes for a few days. The post will be live forever for which, every blog author searches for the long lasting connection.
If you can’t be that person then you’re not ready.
#6. You Can’t Handle Rejection.
I have tried so hard to write guest posts for many blogs and I was rejected many times. But you know what, I never gave up.
I tried again and again and it’s my time that people are offering me guest posts.
The thing is that if you can’t handle the rejections and give up trying then you’re not ready for guest blogging. Never lose hope.
Send some new blog post ideas to the famous bloggers. You will have your sugar some day.
Many people never visit the blog from which they get rejected. I mean who does that?
You’re not a kid now. Grow up and show your potential.
#7. You Don’t Utilize An Opportunity.
A few bloggers ditch the blog owners after getting accepted. You may have experienced that a few guest bloggers never show up again after getting featured.
Is this a game where you try to impress a girl so that you can have a date with her and leave her just after that?
It’s not a game show where you pretend to be the kind-hearted person. And after the show, people realize that you’re the most pretentious person they have ever met.
Have some respect for yourself and never try to pretend. Whether you ask for a guest post or after getting accepted.
Be an original version of yourself.
Do People Still Think That You’re Not Ready For Guest Blogging?
You will get many chances to show your skills but if you don’t have any then no one can do anything.
The first thing is to embrace your skills and then send a guest post request.
Are you afraid that you will get rejected? Can you handle the rejection? If you can’t then you’re ready for guest blogging.
Consider every point and try to learn from your mistakes. Guest blogging is one of the leading opportunities to get more exposure to your blog.
Read, connect, ask, face rejections, try again and win the trophy.
