My Guest Posts, Collaborations, & Interviews

updated December 2021

Being a blogger is more than just writing your own posts and hitting publish. It can be hard to find your audience and gain followers when you first start out. A great way to get your blog and your words out there is to take part in guests posts, collaborations, interviews and photo contributions.

Hopefully, by sharing good quality writing on more established blogs, with a link back to your own blog, you will increase your Domain Authority (DA) score and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Below is a little about what each type of post is, along with names of where I’ve had posts published.


A guest post is where you write a post for publication on another blog or website. The owner of that website may publish a small biography with your piece, or give you a link back to your blog and often your social media channels.

I’ve had the following guest posts published:

May 2021 – how HRT Helped My Menopause

August 2019 – Random Act of Kindness (Book Review)

June 2019 – The Mummy Bloggers (Book Review)

May 2019 – Menopausal Beach Body Blues (Body confidence)

A collaboration is where you contribute a piece of work to a bigger article for publication on another blog. This piece will be put together, along with the words of several other bloggers, to form a comprehensive piece on a certain subject, ie, 20 Things to do in Las Vegas.

You might contribute anything from a couple of lines, a paragraph or something around 250 words. You will get a writing credit, usually with a hyperlink in your name.

This is not to be confused with a brand collaboration, where you are paid to write an advertisement piece for a brand. This is all about bloggers working free with other bloggers.

Some bloggers hold a regular interview feature where they ask their guests a set of questions. They might be about blogging, their particular niche or something more personalised.  Eg, I ran An Afternoon of Tea and Cake for the Soul where I asked questions relating to all the subjects that I cover here on my blog. You will usually get links back to your blog and social media accounts.

I’ve taken part in blogger interviews at:

October 2019 – Live a Blissful Life (Writing)

February 2019 – Eat To Heal (Mental Health)

December 2018 – Friday Night Drinks (Lifestyle)

November 2018 – Meet Tea & Cake (Blogging)

    • I think it’s good writing practice contributing to posts elsewhere, and it’s nice to write something that you maybe wouldn’t on your own blog.

      I hope it will get my words out to more people too, and maybe help my freelance writing.
