The top bloggers because they are already on top and are famous, most of them care less for new bloggers like you.
Not only they will cost you an arm or a leg (very high cost) but also they accept the highest quality standard possible.
Back to the topic of low-medium level bloggers…
Once you have found a few bloggers, you should decide whether you would like to buy posts from them or write them yourself.
Buy guest posts or DIY
If you are going to purchase guest posts, it will cost you money. However, If you write your own posts, it will cost you your personal time.
Perhaps, some money as well if you are writing the article yourself.
As you may be required to do keyword research or competitive analysis. This practice will require for you to buy online tools or subscriptions.
There are many ways in which you can purchase these posts:
- including paying per post
- buying in bulk
- buying an entire blog
Paying per post is one of the most popular ways in which bloggers can sell their content, as they don’t have to pay anything up front.
However, this may come at a higher price depending on the website authority, traffic and other factors.
Think wisely before buying
If you are thinking of buying an entire blog, there are some key things to bear in mind:
- How long will it take to analyse the content
- Are you financially capable
- Does the blog have good authority
- What is the audience engagement level
- Is the blog completely relevant to your niche
- The blog is a general blog that includes multiple niches
- Any penalties from search engines like Google
You could be looking at hours worth of work involved in this option and may requires a lot of resources i.e. team of specialists and money to pay for those resources.
Know the author background

You can look into the social media profiles or even ask them directly such as; their interests and writing experience. Additionally you can also request for copies of recently completed work or portfolio.
This should give you a very good idea, who you are dealing with.
A good writer is always willing to accommodate your requests.
Writing is an art
A good post usually flows well top to bottom.
The structure of post along with guest posting guidelines can vary from one website to another.
