I have received several offers from bloggers and writers [like me :p] to guest post in my blogs. At first I was confused whether to accept the offer since there are more pros than cons of having guest post, but in the end I decided not to accept it.
Until now, I am receiving offers however, I am firm on my decision though sometimes I am tempted to break it. One good thing of having guest writers is that you don't need to write always, so you'll have spare time to spend in other things. Aside from that, guest writers can provide new topics and writing styles that can attract new readers.Nevertheless, I still opt to have my blogs on my own. My blogs are my personal instruments on sharing my experiences and opinions. Although I can say that I am not really a talented writer, I know that I have my own writing style (which I do not know really hehehe...). I can also say that I do not have lots of loyal readers, but I want to establish to my few ones that it is me, my thoughts, my feelings, and my experiences that they are reading; that when they read my posts, my dear readers will be able to relate to me as these are real-life experiences. Well, this is just me.
I know that there are lots of bloggers out there who accept guest posts, and I say that you should, as I've said earlier, the pros of having guest posts are more than cons. However, if you are to accept guest post, make sure to set clear guest post guidelines. Till then... happy blogging! :-)
