There must be some blogs in your niche you used to go for getting new content ideas or for increasing your knowledge about certain topics. You may even be sending your valuable feedback to them in the form comments. And the blog owners are really happy with your knowledge about the topic you are commenting about. And thus when you approach them with an idea of a guest post, they will surely allow your guest post being published on their blogs.
2. Blogs with Submit Guest Post Option
Apart from this, there will be some blogs in your niche that understands the concept of guest blogging and thus have created a link like Submit Guest Post, write for us, Contribute a Post etc in their header menu sections. And when you see a link like this on any of blogs in your niche, you should be happy that you got one more blog to guest post.

You will be able to find lots of blogs for guest blogging when trying searching terms like “submit guest post”, “write for us”, “guest blogging”, “contribute guest post” etc on Google. I would suggest you maintaining an excel sheet to keep track of blogs where you can submit guest posts. You should keep track of blog URL, Blogger Name, Contact details and link for guest blogging if any in your excel.
There are some websites created on the concept of guest blogging only like MyBlogGuest.com where you can find some guest blogging options for you. Apart from this, you can even invite other bloggers to guest posts on your blog. My Blog Guest website has an active discussion forum where you will find lots of threads created. In some threads, bloggers would have been inviting other bloggers to submit guest posts on their blogs. While with others, there will be bloggers showing interest in doing guest posts on other blogs and thus bloggers who are interested in getting more guest posts on their blogs will reply positively to such threads. So I would call My Blog Guest, a marketplace for submitting and accepting guest posts. You can use Blogger LinkUp website for the same purpose.
4. Subscribe to Favorite Blogs
I would recommend subscribe to some blogs in your niche and when you see a guest post publishing on any of blogs from other blog owner or website owner, there is every chance they will accept guest post from you even through they don’t have a link like submit guest post on their blogs. And in case you want to submit a guest post on BloggersPassion, you are most welcome for that and you can do that by using the submit guest post link available in header navigation menu.
