Guestblogging The Right WayPosted: February 8, 2013
Happy Friday CCCers. A quick note on something I wanted to share (If guestblogging is not your cup of tea, ignore the rest of this post and have a good weekend. If guestblogging is something you’ve considered, read on).
Ever heard of Jon Morrow? If not, read this and come back.
Back? He’s one of the highest-paid writers/marketers in the blogosphere.
He started a guest blogging program some time back to help bloggers write better, and get noticed and land guest posts with influential bloggers. I went through his program and it does indeed kick ass. After doing the program, the main thing I learned is his methods are so bleepin’ simple, yet so overlooked by most bloggers I’ve seen struggling for attention. I was left thinking how much of an unfair advantage his students have over bloggers trying to get attention and write powerful prose on their own. And I liked the program so much, I started offering people in the forum free color-coded line edits of their posts to give their guest posts a final polish (I edit in case you didn’t know. The edits I did for Jon’s guestblogging program look like these edit tutorials I did in the past.)
Anyway, Jon liked what I did so much, I’m now officially part of his guestblogging program, and all my color-coded edits are in the forum for everyone to study.
It’s something I believe will benefit struggling bloggers or I would not have bothered to go through the course or become part of it.
Now for the part that benefits ME.
If you decide you or someone you know could use such a program, and you’ve come to like me through the CCC, use my affiliate link to check out the program. If you’re checking out the program anyway, you may as well leave some extra coin in my pocket in the process (I could use it more than Jon 😉 )
Pimping out programs isn’t really my style, so this will be the only time I post something like this.
Hopefully, I’ll see some of you in the program. If not, I’ll see you every Monday and Thursday as usual.
