Please welcome guest blogger Rajeev Edmonds of New Delhi, India! Rajeev is a Problogger, and we met via Twitter.

10 Tips for Being a Gracious Guest

Guest posting has been a popular topic in the blogosphere during the past few weeks. Chris Garrett (Authority Blogger) just released an eBook, Guest Posting — for Quality Links and Targeted Traffic ($10), and Jade Craven recently published The Guest Post Mini Guide ($20). Since we host guests at On Blogging Well, plus I periodically write guest posts, I thought this would be a good topic to discuss on this Wednesday is Friends Day, especially since guest posting is a great way to connect and make friends with fellow bloggers.

Lorna Seilstad loves God, her family, friends, chocolate, and writing. And yes, probably in that order. Her first novel, Summer of Truth from Revell, will be out in the fall of 2010. The next two in the series will follow in subsequent years. Lorna’s unique take on blogging is that she coordinates a group blog titled, Inkspirational Messages. As one of “the 10,” I can say contributing to a group blog has been a great experience, and I’m grateful to Lorna for all the work she does to make our blog such a success. Continue reading →
