Guest blogging is a great way for aspiring writers to expand their audience reach for their own blog pages and perhaps sell a few books also.
But, as Anne R. Allen succinctly describes in her latest excellent blog at the weekend, there are right ways and wrong ways to land a valuable guest blog.

I particularly loved the way she describes how, in the publishing/blogging world, the term ‘guidelines’ usually means ‘iron-clad rules’…!
And I’m sure I’m not the only one who is shocked that one of the main points Anne has to make is for hopeful guest bloggers to actually read the blog!
Oh, and if you haven’t read one of Anne’s blogs before, be sure to go all the way to the bottom where she always posts information and links to some amazing literary competitions under the heading ‘Opportunity Alerts’.
Right! I’m off to read lots of blogs now. Be afraid all you blog owners out there… be very afraid!
