5 reasons why I never bothered with guest blogging

guest blogging

Guest blogging? Not for me. Here's why.
  1. To be consistent with their brand, my voice has to blend in with theirs.
    One reason why people will choose to follow your blog is to see the world from a different perspective.
  2. SEO experts claim that guest blogging will benefit my blog because of spill-over traffic.
    When was the last time you clicked on a guest blogger's bio after reading their article?
  3. Blogging for someone else, you are adding to their brand value with very little return to yours.
    "I wrote for so-and-so" other writers will claim. They think that by writing for a famous brand, that popularity will somehow rub off on theirs.

    It doesn't work that way. It is still someone else's brand they are promoting. I would rather be patient planting seeds on my own garden, thank you.
  4. Once you get what building a brand is all about, you will NEVER write for someone else for the rest of your life.
  5. If I am good enough to write for someone else, why should I?
