Guest blogging for lawyers 101

Guest blogging may be a win all the way around for lawyers.

  • Guest blogging on a popular law blog, especially one associated with your niche, is a great way to market your blog. Ask David Rossmiller who guest blogged at Point of Law.
  • Hosting guest bloggers on your blog is an excellent way to get new content, perhaps offering new perspectives or covering for you while you’re gone.
  • Guest bloggers on your blog will draw more readers because those guests will tell their blog readers about posting on your blog.
  • Thinking about launching a blog, but not sure? Maybe you can get a blogger to let you test drive blogging.

For some expert advice on guest blogging check out ‘Why Guest Blogging is a Powerful Way to Gain Exposure for Your Blog‘ from North x East and this series of posts from Darren Rowse, whose post on guest blogging inspired me me to do this post.

For lawyers who have done some guest blogging or hosted guest bloggers on your blog, please share your experiences with us.

    Guest bloggers and guest blogging is a great way to accomplish a lot. Not only do you get fresh content from a fresh point of view when you have a guest blogger. You get the chance to also broaden your own audience by guest posting for someone else. Both you as the host and the guest blogger also build incoming and outgoing links. It is just another way to get your own blog in the “busy intersection” Kevin has mentioned before.
