Guest posting is an excellent tool that has served blogs well. Not only does it provide fresh content, but also a fresh perspective, style and personality. It draws readers already dedicated to that writer’s work, and offers a unique and helpful chance to network with other blog owners.
But possibly the most popular posts are those written by celebrity guest writers. A number of sources will use this tactic to draw readers, and the posts gather a large amount of attention. Not only for the original post itself, but the potential for reposting, quoting and linking. Social media marketing benefits greatly from celebrity blog posts.
Here are five examples, along with a few tips on what we can learn from each one.
Tia Mowry first made it to our TV screen back on the 90’s sitcome Sister, Sister with twin Tamara. Since then she has been in a number of things, including BET’s The Game. But last year she embarked on a whole new journey: motherhood. She wrote a celebrity blog post for Parenting about what the experience was like. From the birth of her son Cree Taylor Hardrict, to the joys of breastfeeding and the strengthening of her marriage, she gave wonderful insight into those first few weeks as a new mother that so many of us cherish.
What Can We Learn? Personalization is key. She did not speak in general terms, but wrote about her life in an intimate way that connects to the readers on a deeper level. She reminds all of us who have children of what it was like in the beginning, and brings back cherished memories.
