If you take a look at the post prior to this one about whales, you will only find an excerpt of an article and a link. This is because I have been exploring avenues to gain more exposure for my articles, and guest posting is a very effective way to do this! This marks the first time I've authored a guest post, and it won't be the last, so don't be surprised if future posts are also links to other websites.
I'm still thinking about my overall strategy. I may choose to just have 1 or 2 sites where I regularly contribute, or I may try and spread my work around a little more to have a diverse portfolio. Ultimately, I've become confident enough in my writing skills that I'm not satisfied with just having the odd person stumble onto my blog. I want my work to actually get out there.
