Some of you have commented to me that I seem to have a number of guest posts on this blog lately and wonder about how I chose guest bloggers. It's pretty simple.
Most potential guest bloggers contact me via email. If they can suggest a topic that is in line with the theme of this blog, and demonstrate that they can write decently, we proceed.
Any guest post has to be on topic and well written. I also allow a byline of course (one link please initially), something like these examples:
Joe Brooks is a blogger and businessman who lives in Missoula and fly fishes in his spare time.He operates a Osterizer Blender Parts online store in his sparetime.
This post courtesy of Fred Flintstone, an expert in Sparkling Wine.Interested in Zeus or in any other Greek Mythology figures?
Henry Higgins writes on red wine, the formerly disgraced science of Phrenology, and Clams. He lives in downtown Chicago with his 37 cats.
When the post is done it is reviewed by a small group of my colleagues - basically I pass it by them. They decide whether it is good enough to publish. Most posts get published. The link must be to a high quality site or blog.
