When is the right time to allow guest posts on your blog?
I will admit to you right now.
That I don’t really know the answer to my own question.
The reason I don’t know is because.
Not all bloggers are the same. Some produce more content than others.
They also blog about a variety of different things.
Let’s say for example.
That your blog has content written from a highly specialized and personal point of view.
Then the chances are…
…that you would not want any Tom, Dick, or Harry writing anything on it.
In the beginning of my blogging journey.
I convinced myself that I had to be a total control freak, and write all of the content myself.
I now know, taking that approach was wrong.
Because this blog is about making money from Affiliate Marketing, and not a diary of my life.
That is why I have finally made the decision (Jan 2013) to allow guest posts on my blog.
If you are already doing this .You must be wondering how come it took me so long to get with the program.
All I can say to you in my defense, is that I’m a slow learner. But now that I am fully on board with the whole thing, I can only see good times ahead in the coming years.
However, I will be taking quality control of all submitted content very seriously. There is no way that I will ever allow my blog to be completely over run by guest posts.
The last thing that I want is to turn this site into some low quality article directory.
Having my own personal platform to voice my views and opinions is still very important to me.
I know that I could easilly just accept every guest post request, regardless of the subject matter.
But in the end, that would be doing my site more harm than good. It would also defeat the purpose of me allowing guest posts in the first place.
What do you think, am I right?
