Guest Blogging: What NOT to do

I've posted several times about guest blogging (it is after all one of the best ways to reach a new audience and build your author brand). I usually post tips and advice to help you be a good guest but I came across this infographic by SEO Smarty and realised it was time to focus on what NOT to do.

  1. This is a great graphic! It's a bit small to read, but it makes it more fun to spot all the little comedies throughout. One other I'd throw in there is to not thank the site owner. That's a big no-no.

    1. I agree Chris. Thanking your host is a must.


I love to hear from you. So feel free to comment, but keep in mind the basics of blog etiquette — no spam, no profanity, no slander, etc.
