As you may already be aware I set up a “write for us” page on this blog to monitor what people are doing in terms of guest posting these days.

I woke up this morning to find a very interesting guest post request in my inbox and just had to share it…

HI, This is (redacted) from(redacted)

I would like to do a Guest Blog in your Blog and in return you can do a Blog post in our Blog

What if I provide you with a unique article (I will write the Post as per the guide line given by you) as a Guest Post.
