A 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:
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.
Dennis is full of great ideas, isn’t he? 😉
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?
Thanks man. I’m actually changing all my pages to posts for extra benefits. 😉
I was thinking an actual post would be better also, since there are more SEO benefits and such.
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.
No need, jut build a navigation link list on the sidebar or something…link to the post.
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. 😉
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. 🙂
Now that you mentioned it though, you should always keep track of your guest posts. 😉
Don’t forget comments, it turns anything into an instant FAQ, which could be very handy for some “pages”.
I always have comments enabled for pages. Nice tip, Dennis. 🙂
Lucky you, I think that’s a theme thing though. I’ve never been able to enable comments on a page.
flexsqueeze allows it?
Awe… that makes sense now. 😉
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.
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.
