Share Your Voice :: Write A Guest Post

by derek on May 15, 2008 · 18 comments

How would you like to share your voice with a new audience?
How would you like a few backlinks from a growing blog?
How would you like to help out another blogger?
Derek Semmler dot com is now accepting guest posts.
Not that I wasn’t before, as I am always interested in having another blogger (or someone that doesn’t have a blog of their own) share their voice with all of you; but I thought that I would formally make the request for guest posts.
With an upcoming trip to Las Vegas on the horizon, now would be a great time for me to line up a few guest posts – as I know the temptations of Vegas will make it difficult to post.
But I am not the only one that will benefit from guest posts.
As a blogger writing a guest post for me, you will stand to benefit in the following ways:

  • Exposure to a new community of readers
  • Links to your site, either in the post or in a byline
  • Potential to increase your RSS subscribers if you impress everyone
  • You get to help out another blogger

As a reader here at Derek Semmler dot com, you will benefit from having guest authors in the following ways:

  • Hear things from a new perspective
  • Continue reading fresh, relevant content
  • Find another blogger to read regularly
  • You get a break from me; wait, that isn’t a benefit – is it?

So, what do you think? If you’re interested in writing a guest post, please contact me or you can send me a tweet and we will work out the details.
Thanks!

Stay In The Loop!

I’d definitely like to make a guest post, and I’ll be sending you an email. Be fun for me, but you might end up regretting it… 🙂

I think this is a great idea, though my current focus on furniture maybe a bit off the beaten path so to speak.

Fantastic idea Derek, would love to have a subject that was suitable and/or interesting enough.
In my real job I do liquidation and bankruptcy work (your Chapter 11 equivalent). My hobby is free stuff and the journey that has taken me on, including arriving here.
Neither are sexy enough for your blog!

Writing a guest post seems like a really big responsibility. I’m not sure I’m ready to take something like this on at this point in my life. I know someday I will be ready, someday…

Sounds good. I’ll try to write something good enough that is worth your blog.

Would love to write something here. But, don’t think my style fit into your blog 😛

The trip was fantastic, although the conference itself was mediocre. There was less information on the technology that we were interested in but the opportunity to network and meet with some of the vendors was worth the trip. Plus it was Vegas!
