Finally someone in Hollywood who gets it! It's clear that he has learned a lot from making the film about #SteveJobs and it has inspired him to share his beautiful message with this young crowd! I hope they will be able to take away at least one of his 3 things he talks about! I know I have!

The Secrets to Successful Guest Blogging

Read it now:

Pin it for later:

Guest blogging can be a valuable asset in your tool kit, whether you’re a blogger, writer, podcaster, or small business owner. Being published on the right blogs can help you gain new followers, hone in on your niche or build your thought leadership. I’ve written posts for Bit Rebels, Marketing Profs, and The Huffington Post to name a few. There are a few tips to doing it right as as an editor of 12 Most for the past few years and a fairly frequent guest writer, I’m happy to share some of the secrets that have worked for me.

1. Research blogs that fit in your niche.
2. Check to make sure that the websites that you want to write for accept guest posts.
3. Contact the editor via email to ask if they accept guest posts, make sure that you use their name. It can be found on their website somewhere, most sites will have a page with info on how to guest post.
4. Spend some time coming up with a title and a few sentences about what your post will be.  The title is essential and should pique the interest of the reviewer. This is the story of your post boiled down to the essence. It should be tweetable and easy to share.

Send an email that is fairly short, five or six sentences in length. Editors receive a lot of email and being concise, polite and interesting can get you a yes.

Time to get motivated and stop saying "I should do this"...just do it already.

I hope I’ve given you a few tips for getting started on writing guest posts. Let me know if you have any questions or tips that work for you in the comments below.

This article was a special request post for my friend +Jared Easley  who has an amazing podcast called Starve the Doubts. Is there anything that you’d like me to write about? Let me know! (+Stephan Hovnanian  this might answer a few of your Qs too)

Great post! #edu 
This post reminds me of when I "didn't teach" my students how to create WordPress blogs at the end of this school year. Rather than teach the technical aspects of creating the blog, I focused on the content.

Through exploration and discovery, students were able to figure out the technical aspects of setting up their blogs. Once a student learned how to do something, he or she would show the rest of the class. One day in class, I simply referenced that I was able to embed my Twitter feed into my blog and the next day, several of my students had taught themselves how to do the same.

I know it's scary at first to "not teach" and trust that real, meaningful learning experiences can occur, but once you try it, you will realize that not only are you creating learning experiences for your students that will last a lifetime, but you are also becoming a pretty amazing teacher.
