41 Sites Which Openly Allow Guest Blogging

girl writing

Guest blogging has gained in importance since Google increased the value of original content over time. Duplicate content went down in value, article directories went down, backlinks for the sake of backlinks went down. Useful, original content went up, and with it, the value of a guest blog post.

It’s a win-win-win situation: The blog owner wins because it helps bring in fresh new content. The blogger wins because it’s a quality backlink as well as exposure to a new audience. The audience wins by getting a different perspective on a favorite topic. If you’d like to use guest posting to expand your message and reach new audiences, there are a few common best-practices to keep in mind.

  1. Write for the blog’s audience.
  2. Send an original post that appears nowhere else on the web (unless the blog owner specifically tells you different).
  3. Link to your own website in the resource box, and don’t use affiliate links anywhere in the article. Most bloggers accept informational links in the body of the article, but clear it with the blog owner.
  4. Do your best work and correct grammar and spelling errors before you send it off.

That’s pretty much it. Different bloggers will have different instructions about how to contact them, how to get your blog post to them, the length and so forth. These rules are all to help you write a post that fits their blogs, and so take them as friendly advice from someone who really wants to be able to publish your post.

Here are 41 great blogs on a number of topics that invite accept guest posts. They’re not by any means the only guest blogging opportunities around, but if you want to get started in guest blogging, you can probably find a few candidates here that are looking for the kind of writing you do.

About the list:

Each of the items in the list includes the name of the blog and a link to the page detailing guest post submission guidelines. And then there is a brief description of the topics covered in the blog.

I also include Google’s PageRank and the Alexa rating for the comparative power of the blog. Google’s PageRank affects how high a site will appear in search engine results for a keyword it covers. Higher is better. The Alexa ranking is based on traffic in the home country, and "1" is the top. If a site has a ranking of 459, that means 458 sites get more traffic than it does in its country. The numbers are good for a general reading, but they can fluctuate wildly, and they’re always out of date. So if you see a site that is a really good fit, go for it. Don’t be dissuaded by the numbers.

Placing Your Guest Post

These are 41 sites that present good opportunities to increase your traffic, get good backlinks and spread your message. It’s by no means all the opportunities you could find. For more sites, you can google the phrase "guest post* guidelines" + "YOUR KEYWORD" (filling in the actual keyword you’re looking for).

Alternatively, if you know of a blog you’d like to write for, the owner might accept your post even if there is no "guidelines" page. Simply outline a post that would be a good fit for the blog and email the blog owner, using the contact page information. Explain why you want to write for the blog and the idea you have for an article. If the blog owner sees it as a good fit, you might find a home for your post. The worst that can happen is that you look to place it somewhere else.

Guest posting has become a hot topic, and the practice is not going away. Put it to good use to build a bigger audience for your blog.

  35. MOMTraders says:

    Hi, I run a large marketplace for MOMS (www.MOMTraders.com) to buy, sell and trade. Each MOM is provided with their very ecommerce store, and they can advertise their posh boutiques in one place. MOMS can also sell their unused, unneeded items through the marketplace. I have been expanding the site daily by adding relevant interesting content categories. I am always open to additional content ideas. Just contact me and we can discuss it. Local based content is always welcome. If you write for MOMTraders it will help establish you as an expert in your niche. The site will be going through a major marketing campaign after I complete all content areas. So now would be a great time to add your content. I always leave bylines in tact. I simply request that the content is 100% unique for my website. I look forward to creating a wonderful publishing relationship.
