Tips for Blogging with Themed Topics and Guest Bloggers
Have you been wondering how to make your blog more interesting, how to get more people to your blog, and how to post to your blog on a schedule? One good strategy can solve all of your blog challenges in one fell swoop: themed posts written by guest bloggers! In this post I’ll share tips for blogging with themed topics and how you can enlist guest bloggers to share their wisdom in guest blog posts.
Tips for Blogging with Themed Topics
I’m trying out a regimen, at least for a short time. My blog is going to have three theme days:
“How-to Tuesdays”: Short and sweet tips and strategies to help you with your content strategy, content marketing, search engine optimization and social media marketing.
“Weird Wednesdays”: Weird yet effective marketing methods.
“Success Story Saturdays”: Posts covering neat business successes and the methods they used to get results.
What themes might you use for your blog? Let’s say you have a jewelry making business and you teach other people how to master the techniques. Maybe you could do a weekly post on jewelry inspired by nature, a weekly post on working with gem stones, and a weekly post on finishing techniques.
But how do you write all these posts? Let’s talk how you can get help from guest bloggers.
Tips for Blogging with Guest Bloggers
Let’s face it. Blogging takes time and energy. And without a strategy and a schedule, weeks can go by without a new post magically appearing on your blog. Guest bloggers are an excellent answer. Like many business owners, I wondered for a long time about the best way to do this.
So I put together a survey that asks for all the information I need to engage guest bloggers and help them to easily share their tips on content marketing, social media marketing, search engine optimization and other topics that I cover in my blog.
You can see the survey here: Guest Blog and Contributor Survey.
Then I shared the survey on one of my Facebook groups to get my new blog strategy rolling, and I offered to do lots of promotion on all of my social media when I publish guest posts.
I got some immediate responses to my survey, and I’m set to put my system in place. Be sure to come on back and see how it’s going. You’ll see a mix of my posts and awesome posts from my fabulous guest bloggers.
Feel free to fill out the survey if you have content marketing tips, weird and wacky marketing strategies or business successes to share. And think about how to use these tips for blogging with themed topics and guest bloggers on your own blog.
Happy blogging! To your content marketing success,
