It is also an excellent way to establish yourself as an authority and build relationships with other bloggers and experts within the field of your expertise.

How to do guest blogging?
Before you write a guest post for us, make sure you read our guest blog post guidelines carefully. You will find plenty of useful tips and information there on how to get started. When you come up with an idea for your guest post, research what has been written on the topic by other authors: google it and check the first page results. After doing this, try to answer the question: how can I make the topic more interesting? What can I say that hasn’t been discussed by others? What unusual approach could I take in order to make my article stand out?

Is guest blogging free?
While some websites have fees for publishing guest posts, blogging on GoDates is absolutely free. All that you need to do is submit a blog post that adheres to our editorial guidelines in terms of length and structure and has clear argumentation. Please note that direct advertising and brand mentions are not allowed in our free guest posts. Think of your blog post as a valuable source of information, not an advertisement.
If you are running a business and you’d like to advertise on GoDates, please contact us to discuss the opportunities.
How to submit a guest post?
When you have your guest post ready, proofread it before submitting it to us. Use a spellchecker in your text editor or any online proofreading tool to ensure there are no grammatical errors. It is always a good idea to give your guest post to read to your friend or a relative to get a second opinion and correct the errors that you may have overlooked. When you feel happy with your blog post, you can send it via email to info[at]godates.co along with your headshot and a short bio. We will get back to you with the feedback as soon as we can.
