    Hi Krystsina,
    Oh I agree. I don’t guest blog very often either, as it requires a tremendous amount of dedication. Thankfully , the potential rewards are more than worthwhile (not to mention, the ability to build relationships with others).

    Thanks!

    In the end, guest blogging can go in a variety of ways. I personally prefer a quirky tone (similarly to the way you’d talk to your buddy). In contrast, someone else may prefer a more conservative voice.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    • Hey Elvis,

      I’m glad that you liked the post!

      There some people who are very outgoing and outspoken and loves all the attention directed towards them and then there’s us introverts who approach life in a different way.

      Blogging is a great way for an introvert to express themselves which is what you discovered.

    • Hello Elvis

      Great post !

      I think it’s very important to know the niche and the requirement of a blog or certain blogs before you even agree to guest blog for them. I’m sure noone wants subpar content written on their blog just because the guest blogger wanted that valuable backlink.

      I believe you should always voice your opinion but with the…[Read more]

    • Hi Elvis,

      thanks for sharing this post, I found it very useful!

      I’ve never did guest blogging yet, but I’m getting such offers from time to time. It seems to me as a great amount of work that needs to be done apart from just writing a post. Exploring its style, tone of voice, audience, etc. is the only way to the successful guest blogging.…[Read more]

    • Hey Elvis,

      You are right about the importance of tone in guest blogging. Every blogger must understand that the tone is important. Indeed, it is a way of showing respect for the owners of the blog.

      What matters also is that the guest bloggers must ensure that he/she maintains an identical tone every now and then!

      • Agree, and although I havent dedicated as much time to guest blogging as i should, this is perhaps my biggest priority in 2017.

    • Hi Elvis,

      Guest blogging is a strategy that demands continuous personality. It becomes important to establish clear-cut tone in the voice that is used.

      Understanding the domineering tone of the guest blog is important so that writing in alliance with the needs of the audience would become easier.

      Well, thanks for reminding us of the…[Read more]

    • Hi Elvis,

      Guest blogging without adhering to the tone of voice is like taking a journey without a road map. The end is likely to be confusion and frustration.

      Writing with the tone of voice of the blog is important. At least, this will bring about a good level of acceptability!

    • Hi Elvis,

      I completely buy into your closing remarks:

      “In the end, it all comes down to being respectful to people and not rushing things. Spend some time with the blog you intend to write for; read some articles; read comments.”

      This will surely help in creating guest post with admirable tone of voice to increase credibility!

    • When guest posting, I believe that the blog should have a voice. This is important in the sense that he would be seen as authentic and credible.

      While its not easy creating a writing tone of voice for guest blogs overnight, it becomes paramount that prior research is made to know what the target audience wants.

    • Whenever we exercise tone in guest blogging, we are keying into the realities of the target audience.

      Without this approach, we aren’t going to achieve any tangible thing.

      I guess following this approach should be enough to help us do guest blogging with all success!

    • Hi Elvis,

      Its a good thing you have reminded us of the essence of tone when guest blogging. I couldn’t agree with you more on this topic.

      This is especially on the fact that understanding the tone of a website begins with spending some time to read it.

      If this is done with a purpose, then it become easier to achieve success with guess blogging!

    • Hey Elvis,

      Knowing what the blog is about in it’s entirety and what audience it’s directed to is very important.

      You want to make it a win/win/win situation where the blog owners wins, you win and the audience wins. Other than that, no one benefits.

      Whenever I’ve done guest posts, I made sure that I knew what the blog was about and I…[Read more]

    • Guest bloggers must understand what the audience of the host blog wants.

      The more hang you have with the tone of the audience the better content that would be produced.

      It becomes important for new guest bloggers to give priority to the importance of tone.

    • RESPECT. It’s all about respect, no matter where you are, online or in person. That’s in my humble opinion.

    • Hi Elvis,

      I have learned that the best way to pass your message across and to make your audience understand you better is to speak in their language.

      The tone and manner you approach your audience can either make or break the relationship.

      People deserve respect, and we need also to respect ourselves.

      Thanks for sharing, Elvis.

    • Every website has its own tone. This must never be ignored. Following the tone of guest blogging audience will make the writer get the needed results.

      Such wonderful tips!

      Reminding ourselves that it’s all about being human is key, I feel, something that’s easy to forget in business and marketing and the effort to achieve results.

    • Hi Elvis,

      Great words, my friend. Tone is definitely a big deal, and it should come natural to someone that’s interested in contributing to a site. If the tone is much different, the interested party is more likely interested in leaving a commercial link or two and scaring your visitors away. Some things are just common sense, you know?… A…[Read more]

    • I think one wants to strike a similar tone to the main blogger, since that’s what readers expect. At the same time, one has to speak with one’s own personality, one’s own style.

      I know your post doesn’t really go into that aspect of tone, but it’s something I thought I would add. It’s a challenging balance.

    • Hi Elvis,

      I have been reading a lot about copywriting lately as I know it is essential to making money online. Most material I read or listen to talks about knowing your audience and writing accordingly.

      If it is so important in writing a salesletter it makes sense that you should write in a certain tone for blog readers too!
