PROS & CONS OF HAVING GUEST BLOGGERS

Hello everybody!

I realized a couple of weeks ago that I haven't been listing pros and cons about anything
for a while. A couple of weeks ago I was also a bit annoyed, so I caught up with an idea -
what if I make one about having a guest bloggers over at the blog? I'm pretty familiar
with this subject, because as you might have had already noticed, there's been a couple
of guest bloggers over for a plenty times.
The reason that I'm having and searching guest bloggers is genuine because I want to get
to know to new bloggers and whilst I'm doing it - you as a reader should be able to get to
know as many amazing bloggers on the blogosphere as I do.
It has so many positivities but with every positivity, there's always a little negativity.

Before I kick off this list for good, I want to thank all of you who have been writing guest
posts for this blog. You're simply the most amazing & dedicated people that I know.
I couldn't be more thankful. So thank you.



CONS OF HAVING GUEST BLOGGERS

- When I have to give them a subject to write about. I mean,
I love to do that but if you really want to put effort to this blog
post, you scroll through my blog and suggest something that fits
to this one. Which is, basically anything between the Earth and
the Sky.

- When you have everything scheduled, a date picked and topic
chosen, you never hear from the blogger again. This is something
I've come across plenty of times. I'm pretty generous when it comes
to that time the guest blogger has to write their posts. There's usually
from 3 to 6 weeks time for them to prepare their post, but then - you
never hear from them again. I'm not so sure why this keeps happening,
but it does and it's super annoying. I consider guest blogging as a
commitment, not as a huge one than other commitments in life, but
if you've promised to come up with something, for goodness sakes
let me know so I don't have to magically find another post instead of
the one there was supposed to be a day before it was supposed to go live.

- When they leave their e-mail address for you to get in touch with
them, but you never hear them again. I mean, what am I going to do
with your e-mail address if I'm literally not doing anything with it?
Just asking.

PROS OF HAVING GUEST BLOGGERS

- Almost all of them are genuinely nice people. I love to see the
effort they've put in their post, even though it's just a guest blog
for others blog. They put effort to the first impressions and might
get new readers based on their guest posts on other blogs and
guys, that's the real blogger love.

- When they actually respond to your e-mail. I don't know why
this is such a big deal for me, but I like to send a couple of
e-mails during that 6-week process and just ask how they're
doing and are they having any troubles with the date I gave and
how is their writing process going? Why? Because I actually care.

- Usually, they all are so easy to work with. There's nothing more
rewarding than a collaboration where both parties are on the same
page. I mean, that's just so wonderful.

- It saves your time. When there's actually a blogger who's willing
to write a post for you, the blogger saves your time. For me, as a
daily blogger - guest posts are always welcome. Sometimes I'm so
busy with life that I'm sure I can't post daily, but having guest
bloggers over, that's not a problem anymore.

Have you ever had guest bloggers over at your blog? How was your experience?
Oh, and if you want to guest blog over here - send me an e-mail to jasubloggaa@gmail.com
and we'll sort something out.

  1. I've never done a guest blog or had one on mine so this is really good insight! I'm actually a newer blogger so that might play a part. But that would drive me crazy, when you mentioned about never hearing from someone again after having planned it out and having scheduled it and everything! It's like why even reach out in the first place if you can't follow through?! Great read. Ty!
