This post isn’t about the benefits of guest-posting. Chances are, you are here because you decided that you want to guest post (or you are already doing it). If the topics you want to write about concern writing (and/or blogging) better, marketing your writing, getting noticed and more, be sure to check out the guidelines (and content) of these sites. Of course there is no guarantee your queries will be accepted, but you don’t stand a chance without trying.
Freelance Writing Jobs: Also one of my favorite resources for job-searching and writing related information, this site offers guest posting opportunities. Try this link for the guest-posting guidelines.
Copyblogger: Copyblogger has tremendous authority when it comes to blogging, copywriting for the web and running businesses on the web. It also accepts guest posts on a frequent basis. If you have a compelling idea, it is one of the best places to pitch to. The publicity alone…You get the idea. This is the contact page.
Problogger: Darren Rowse is one of the most popular (and I am guessing one of the richest) bloggers out there. He is considered to one of the ultimate blogging gurus. While I couldn’t find a page for guest blogging guidelines, he often accepts (great) guest posts. This is his contact page.
Carol Tice’s Make a Living Writing: I saved the best for last. Not only she provides comprehensive and valuable information on writing, she also accepts and PAYS for guest posts. Yep, you read it correctly. She recently started paying guest bloggers $50 for their posts. You can read the guidelines here. Oh, and this post also includes her reason for paying the writers for guest posts.
