Blogging is alive and well and contrary to what some might think - guest blogging is not dead either. It's growing and it offers lots of potential for savvy bloggers to expand their online network and more importantly to build their email list!
As the owner of a successful blog, Basic Blog Tips, I get approached several times per week by potential guest bloggers but some of them never make the cut! One of the tools I use in the process of vetting potential guests is called Buzzsumo. In this class you will learn how to use Buzzsumo to examine the work of potential guest authors and find out if they have the level of expertise you would like to represent your domain.
I started blogging back in 2009 and since then I have been helping bloggers live out their dream of making money online.
My primary blog Basic Blog Tips, is one of the most popular blogs on the web to learn about blogging, social media and YouTube. It's been viewed over a million times and appears on countless lists of top blogs to follow. I have over a quarter of a million views on the Ms. Ileane Speaks YouTube channel where I've posted over 160 video tutorials.
I'm active on every major social media platform including Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Facebook and even Instagram and have thousands of engaged fans and followers.
I'm often asked to share my expertise in interviews and I've been featured on Black Enterprise, Shout Me Loud, and Google+ Hangout shows including The Mia Connect Power Chat, Blogging Warfare, Relationship Marketing, Podcasters Roundtable and the Manly Pinterest Tips Show.
