A couple of hours ago, I got the following e-mail from the owner of an amateur radio business:
Keep up the good work with your blog. I Enjoy it. I wish I could keep my blog as interesting as yours.
To which, I replied:
Thanks. If you’d like to pay me, I could blog for you as well. Pay me enough, and I’ll ghost-blog, that is I’ll write it and you publish it under your name. You could feed me things that you want me to write about, or just let me write about what I find interesting. If published under my byline, you could even pay me to re-post items originally posted on my blog.
Google loves blogs. They’re great for search engine optimization (SEO). That’s why if you own an amateur radio business, you should not only have a website, but also a blog. Blogs bring traffic to your website, and more traffic means more sales.
The problem, of course, is keeping the content fresh and up-to-date. It’s hard running a retail operation. It’s not a surprise, then, that there’s little time and energy left for blogging.
The solution? Let me blog for you. I am a professional writer by trade and one of the leading amateur radio bloggers. I’ve been at this for more than ten years now, and this blog has nearly 2,000 posts. Let me say that again. This blog has nearly 2,000 posts.
So, let’s talk. As I mentioned earlier, the blog posts I write for you can run under my byline or under your byline. They could be posts that originally appeared on this blog, or completely original pieces. I’m very flexible, and as a writer for hire, I have very little ego. You can edit a piece however you want, as long as you’re paying for it.
