What Is Guest Blogging/Writing? And How To Find Guest Blogging Opportunities
Guest blogging is the writing of articles, blog posts or press releases for other websites. All websites require original, authentic content which is extremely time consuming to create. So guest writing/blogging offers webmasters a great way to add valuable niche content to their site without having to create it and for a contributor to gain exposure from a new audience and a backlink or two to their own site
The guest blogger/site owner relationship is very beneficial if both parties have sites or blogs of real relevance to each other.
