I am a big fan of anything that cuts time out of work and gives me more of a chance to be lazy. Which is why I am always seeking out the best shortcuts that allow me to slash the energy I put into things, without compromising their quality. That isn’t always an easy feat, and I have shot myself in the foot more than once.
How It Works
The process is really simple. You just install the plugin to your blog, then use it to find posts, search keywords, make offers and publish as usual. All from your dashboard, without having to go through the site itself.
Everything listed is completely unique, which makes it even simpler. Literally everything that comes up in the search box is useable, and you can make the offer right from the plugin itself. This sends the request to the writer, so they can see it on their account.
Once they authorize the use of their post, you get a notification on your WP dashboard, just under the header. You can then publish it and send a notice to the writer that it is up or in queue.
Installing The Plugin
Installation is easy. Just go to your MyBlogGuest account and to My Menu > Add/Edit Sites and Tags, then click on the WordPress icon. From there, it will give you a list of your blogs (as you have synced them to your account in the past), and you hit install.
The only thing to remember is that this only works for one blog at a time. Each one has its own verification code to send to WordPress, so to have more than one you have to install it the same way with each site. Luckily, this is very fast and simple to do.
It has never been easier to get guest posts for your blog. I love this plugin, and suggest anyone with a MBG account to get one. If you don’t have an account yet, it is worth the sign up. Life is so much easier now that I don’t have to search for guest writers.
