Title: Question about Guest Blogging
Post by: humblemechanic on October 08, 2012, 11:18:15 AM
I was contacted by a really big tire company last week. They asked me if I would be willing to do some guest blogging.

We had what amounted to a phone interview last week too. I didn't really expect that. It was strange.

So I agreed to do some guest posts for them. We talked about 6 over the next year. The commitment seems really low. I think that I can retool some of my posts I have written and submit that.

What do you guys think?

What do you get out of it? (You don't have to tell us, but see question #2.)

Is it worth your time?

Well, on the surface, I don't get anything. Here is how I am looking at it.

1) It will be lots of exposure for me
2) Links back to my site.
3) Something I can add to the "resume`".
4) The chance to work with some professional media companies. That I can use as a resource down the road.

So in my mind it is worth it. MY concern is doing the work for someone else, and them using my content for their profits.

I was mostly wondering if anyone had experience with this type of guest blogging. And how it worked out for them..

Oh, and the chance for some free tires too.
