Guest Posting: My Guest Posts

guest-postingA little while ago I wrote a blog post about how to get your blog moaning with pleasure.

As a result of the blog post, a regular commenter here and a good blogging buddy, Dennis Edell from Direct Sales Marketing recommended I add a page listing my guest posts. i.e. having links to the guest posts I have had published.

Well I have finally got around to setting this up and I have crossed it off my list.

Some of my best writing has been published on other blogs and this is a great way to tell my readers – so thank YOU Dennis.

You can see the new page here:

My Guest Posts

If you get a few minutes have a read and I hope some of them make a difference to your blogging experiences.

    Excellent job man!

    And may I be the first to say, holy crap jack, that’s a lotta guest posts. Nice!

      Thanks for the original idea.

      I do like guest posting!

    That’s great— funny I had that same idea when I woke up this morning..where can I put my guest posts? Now I am not the only one who had that idea! Thanks!

      Now…it’s just a little action to follow up on the idea!

    Wow, that is a lot of guest posts, good job! How do you get so many guest posting opportunities? Do you just contact the site owners and offer to write something?

      In many cases I have built up a bit of a realtionship with the blog owners beforehand.

    Hey Andrew,

    Dennis is full of great ideas, isn’t he? πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been wanting to do something similar ever since I started guest posting, but I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to create an actual page or to create a post that lists them all.

    What would you recommend?

    • Dennis Edell October 13, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

      Thanks man. I’m actually changing all my pages to posts for extra benefits. πŸ˜‰

      • Alan Mater October 13, 2010 at 12:49 pm #

        I was thinking an actual post would be better also, since there are more SEO benefits and such.

        • Andrew October 13, 2010 at 6:55 pm #

          Do both!

          One as a post and then a permanent reminder to visitors – as a page.

            Hmm… not a bad idea there, Andrew! Now I just need to get all of my posts together… lol.

          • Dennis Edell October 14, 2010 at 1:03 pm #

            No need, jut build a navigation link list on the sidebar or something…link to the post.

          • Alan Mater October 14, 2010 at 2:09 pm #

            What I meant was, I need to find all of my guest posts on the other blogs and get them together to create the post/page. πŸ˜‰

          • Dennis Edell October 15, 2010 at 12:21 pm #

            Sorry Alan, that last reply of mine “No need, just build a navigation link list on the sidebar or something…link to the post.” – was in reply to Andrew. πŸ™‚

          • Dennis Edell October 15, 2010 at 12:23 pm #

            Now that you mentioned it though, you should always keep track of your guest posts. πŸ˜‰

        • Dennis Edell October 14, 2010 at 1:05 pm #

          Don’t forget comments, it turns anything into an instant FAQ, which could be very handy for some “pages”.

          • Alan Mater October 14, 2010 at 2:10 pm #

            I always have comments enabled for pages. Nice tip, Dennis. πŸ™‚

          • Dennis Edell October 15, 2010 at 12:19 pm #

            Lucky you, I think that’s a theme thing though. I’ve never been able to enable comments on a page.

            flexsqueeze allows it?

          • Alan Mater October 15, 2010 at 3:15 pm #

            Awe… that makes sense now. πŸ˜‰

            Yeah, I should have but just never did. I know the blogs they’re on, so I just gotta go find them… lol.

            Actually, it’s a WordPress thing. I’m not sure if there are official settings for this, but if you go to your pages and click on “Quick Edit” there will be a check box to allow comments for that page.

          • Dennis Edell October 16, 2010 at 10:32 am #

            That’s what I thought at first; mine are all set to allow comments, yet, nothing; which has always led me to think it’s a theme thing.
