You are cordially invited to write your heart out, to speak out whatever you are feeling through the most powerful tool “Pen”(or a keyboard to be honest). Express your thoughts, make them flow like a river, and let the world realize your potential. The title “Write For Us: Guest Post” itself encourages you to express your ideas, thoughts, and whatnot.
Let’s not waste our time and proceed further.
Whenever we are writing an article or blog for another person or another company’s website then it is called a guest posting. This is usually done in exchange for some recognition in the form of a link that points back to your site.
If you find someone else’s blog to blog on then you will be the “guest author”.
It mainly depends on two things: the quality of the content and the quality of the site your post will be published.
Almost anyone can write a guest post, but few can write a really good one that goes viral. Moreover, it doesn’t need to go viral but it needs to be helpful, on topic, and well written to generate traffic.
A good guest post is on topic, relevant and can be of various lengths. It should be informative and helpful to the readers.
Guest posting is advantageous too.
It’s a hobby that crosses back and forth from personal zone to the realms of professionalism.
The quality of posts is of great importance for making a website popular and relevant. By encouraging well written and authoritative blog posts and articles, a website stands to establish itself as an authority on the subject. The search bots love sites that have authentic information to offer.
The guest post benefits from posting on sites that promote authentically articles by way of exposure to the readers of a niche category who are genuinely looking for information. Thus the guest blogger establishes his/her authority as a quality writer.
Additionally, it helps to improve writing skills. Though no is perfect in writing great stuff from the go. Each and every great writer has practiced arriving at their masterpiece. Your writing skills will ensure them legitimate traffic thus improving their rankings and traffic conversion. Hence practice and practice even more until you create your own masterpiece.
Guest posting is a great way of building your own brand name. You have the idea you have the content. Guest posting will make sure that you share your ideas with readers who are genuinely interested in the information you are offering.
It creates awareness among the readers about the current social trends.
How do I start writing?
This is the most common question we ask ourselves “how do I start writing”. Trust me you don’t have to be an expert to start writing you just have to start.
we all are aware of the quote “A thousand miles of a journey starts with a single step.” then why not implement that in our real life too. Be it anything, it can be your diary or a blog you always wanted to start, or particular topics which are your interests.
You don’t have to be great to start something new, you just have to start to be great.
In addition to this, writing makes a person happier, it leads to better thinking and increases your ability to organize your thoughts and deal with them calmly.
One of the richest people in the world, Warren Buffet has described writing as a key way of refining his thoughts (and that is a man who reads and thinks a lot).
Even Bill Gates has described writing as a way to sit down and reevaluate his thoughts during the day.
A famous English Business magnet, Investor, author, and philanthropist once said “my most essential possession is a standard-sized school notebook,” which he uses for regular writing.
Writing has just become another tool for thinking, expression, and encouraging creativity, cabin dwelling novelists be damned.
You might be wondering now why writing down your thoughts is so important?
Writing can be an incredibly useful outlet for many people.
Let’s look at some of the research on how writing can affect the mind, and you can decide for yourself.
Well, to be honest, Writing has many benefits. You can influence your audience through your ideas. Your thoughts can have an impact on another’s life.
Writing makes a person happier. As a result, it leads to better thinking along with communication.
In both emotional intelligence and in “hard sciences” like mathematics, writing has been shown to help people communicate highly complex ideas more effectively.
On the other hand, it also helps eliminate “It sounded good in my head” syndrome. It forces ideas to be laid out bare for the thinker to see, where it is much less likely that they will be jumbled up like they are in your head.
The connection between expressive writing and traumatic events is quite complex.
Some pretty amazing studies conclusively show writing about trauma is a powerful way to come to terms with what happened and to accept the outcome.
Writing keeps you sharp with age. Writing is a thinking exercise, and like physical exercise, it can help keep you “in shape” as you age.
Just like how friendships help keep you happy and healthy through their ties to social interaction and dialogue, writing seems like the private equivalent it keeps you thinking regularly and helps keeps the mental rust from forming.
Additionally writing leads to increased gratitude. Before sleeping writing at least three things you are grateful for, enhance one’s outlook on life.
“Writing closes your mental tabs”
How do you feel when you have opened so many internet tabs at a time?
Confused, irritated, distracted, not able to focus right?
It is a madhouse of distraction. And in the end, you mess up everything.

Moreover, writing allows abstract information to cross over into the tangible world. It frees up mental bandwidth and will stop your brain from crashing due to tab overload.
Most importantly, it leads to better learning.
Now that you know about the benefits of writing.
