THE END of Guest Posting: ProBlogger and DBT Closed Guest Post Submission
A couple of days ago I sent a guest post to Daniel Scocco of DailyBlogTips.com. After three days he had sent me a long email. If you’ve ever guest posted on DBT, you might know that he will reply with fewer words only. So the email was just unusual.
In the email Daniel said that he is just closing guest post submission and explained why he has been doing this. After a few days I found a blog post on DBT that officially announces closing of guest post submission.
As a regular reader I am really happy to hear this news. No regret… Because sometimes you can see some lucky low quality articles were got published on Daily Blog Tips. So this move of closing the submission is definitely a nice news.
However, today I come to know that Problogger is also closing unsolicited guest post submission. But this news is a big pain.
A couple of days ago I sent a post regarding buying websites to Problogger also. Georgina, the content manager told me that she will be publishing the post on Feb 16th. But yesterday I got an email from Georgina. Here is the excerpts.
… I’m just writing to you with an unusual request about your buying blogs post…
This week, we had a meeting to set the ProBlogger content strategy for the year ahead, and we made some large changes as a result of that.
After I scheduled your post to publish on the site, I thought this would make a really nice part of a good feature series on the topic of buying and selling blogs, so I started to work on a few other pieces around the same topic.
Now, as part of the new strategy I mentioned, we’ve moved this feature to the week of Feb 17-23, so your post is now schedule to publish on Feb 21. But under the new strategy, I’m wondering if we could develop the piece a bit more—if you’d be willing to add some more content to it …
So definitely the new strategy revolves around quality, that for sure. I am just curious to know what will happen next on ProBlogger.
So where should you go to guest post now?
On the introduction post I told you that my traffic strategy will be more focused on guest posting.
So when it comes to guest posting my first and second preferences were Problogger and DailyBlogTips. But both the 2 blogs were closed the submission. My third preference is JohnChow.com and have published one guest post on JohnChow. Because he don’t publish regular guest posts like DBT and ProBlogger I am not a huge fan of publishing there.
I know some of the blogs like BasicBlogTips.com but have never tried yet. Recently I emailed Ileane but she told me that as of now she is not accepting new guest bloggers for the next 2 months.
So for me, its like “Oh Boy!! What should I do now??”.
Do you know any other blogs that still accept guest posts? Or will you suggest me to stop looking the big names and try posting on medium-sized blogs? Let me know via comments…
