How else are you going to even begin offering anything that would be of value if you have no idea the blog is about? One way that you can get ahead in the game is by studying the blog’s ‘About’ page and reading up on a couple of recent blog articles. Try looking at the kind of topics that the blogger is interested in so that you know what sort of things you can write about.

You seldom get a second chance when sending guest post so make sure to get it right the first time. While a guest post pitch requires a professional tone, don’t be afraid to show off a bit of your unique personality.
Make sure to check your tone so that you don’t come off as arrogant or overly confident. Technically, you’re the one coming forward asking for a favor so try to be as respectful as you can, without having to stoop below your level. Be confident and straightforward with your request so even if the blogger refuses your guest post, you won’t feel bad or beaten down by it.

Showing off your humor is a surefire way to establish human connection so go ahead, don’t be afraid to make them laugh!
If humor isn’t exactly your strong suit, don’t force it. You can get the same results by paying the blogger a well meaning compliment. Be honest and let the blogger know what you liked about his or her blog. Don’t ever resort to saying anything that will compromise your integrity.
