Because of this opportunity I discovered that a great many writers today use their web site primarily to promote the sale of their books and offer services for a fee. They also offer "freebies" to attract visitors to their web site. A "guest blog" is a free gift to visitors. Newsletters are also marvelous freebies.

Both are excellent ways to provide valuable insights into the business of writing. The guest blog is written pro bono, and it helps promote not only the guest's website, but also web sites the guest mentions.

Thus, guest blogs become marvelous, free advertising venues that spread exponentially, because more web site owners also have blogs and use social networks such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.

Watch for my guest blog to be linked ~~ and do let me know where you find it!! My ego loves to be stroked!

Watching my tracking stats increase weekly is heart warming, because then I know more writers ARE finding excellent, free training as I intended.
