Lately, I’ve been getting some offers from others to write guest posts for my blog. I want to thank those who have offered — it’s flattering. At the same time, I have to say that I am not accepting guest posts at this time, and I cannot say when or if I will.
The reason behind that is I’m not making a deliberate, sustained attempt to grow my blog traffic right now. When I started this blog, my intention was not to gain a huge following, but to write for the sake of writing and to hopefully entertain/amuse/inform someone other than myself.
Perhaps, sometime in the future, I will honor guest posts, but as for now… I’m not. I’d have to think a little more about the kinds of guest posts I might want if I do decide to allow them. My blog doesn’t really have one overarching topic at this point. I think if I wrote about writing all the time, it’d get boring pretty fast, or if I wrote about what music I like all the time, that would really get boring fast. So I like to mix it up. That could make guest posts a little challenging. I suppose I’d let a guest poster write about whatever he/she wanted, but at the same time, it would have to fit in with my content somewhat, too.
Something to think about, I guess. 🙂
