If you’re an expert in copy writing, Internet marketing, info products or blogging, and you can write well, one of your goals for 2009 should be to submit a guest blog for Copyblogger, the wildly popular blog that teaches its massive following how to generate traffic, gain subscribers, attract links and sell something.
I’ve been wanting to submit a guest post for months, but never got around to it because I hadn’t figured out whom to contact. This week, Sonia Simone, an associate editor for Copyblogger, gave me the nudge I needed by writing What Makes a Great Copyblogger Guest Post?
Briefly, your information must be useful, relevant and well-written.
Publicity Hounds include writers and authors, advertising executives, publicists, bloggers, editors and proofreaders, Internet marketers, publishers, journalists and others who have expert advice that’s a perfect fit with Copyblogger’s audience.
Why write for Copyblogger? Because it has more than 40,000 subscribers and over 100,000 unique monthly site visitors, and you can get a backlink to your website or blog. Its “About Us” section says:
The Guardian named Copyblogger one of the world’s 50 most powerful blogs.

Visit the Copyblogger site, read the most popular posts in the right-hand column, and then figure out if you have a topic that’s a good fit. They welcome guest bloggers and would love to hear from you—me too, I hope.
