How important is a guest post? From time to time, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to contribute a guest post to someone else’s blog. I’ve also featured guest posts on my personal blog and on the StoryWriting Studio. Why do I think that’s important?
Make connections. This week, I’m honored to be featured on Dena Dyer’s blog.
I met Dena Dyer a few years ago on my way to the CLASS Christian Writers’ Conference. I’m not sure Dena remembers that moment, but I sure do. My daughter Tara and I sat across the aisle from her on the plane on our flight from Dallas to Albuquerque.
When I realized that Dena had already published a book, I quizzed her about her journey to publication. [Sorry, Dena!] But we also shared our Texas connection–Dena lives in Granbury, just down the road from where we lived in Burleson and Fort Worth.
I also had the privilege of writing an endorsement for Dena’s newest book, Wounded Women of the Bible. By the way, I would highly recommend it.
I’m a wife, mom, speaker, author of half a dozen books, and contributor to many more. I love encouraging hurting, harried women to find hope and healing in the arms of Jesus…and take themselves less seriously. My latest release is Wounded Women of the Bible: Finding Hope When Life Hurts, co-written with my dear friend Tina Samples. A few of my favorite things: date nights with my hilarious hubby, spending time with my two sons, and hanging out with girlfriends. I’m grateful for a loving heavenly Father, the blessings He so generously bestows, and His amazing grace. You can find out more about my writing/speaking/mentoring at http://www.denadyer.com.
One morning, I noticed a doe hovering over her fawn in my backyard. I watched them from a distance, so I wouldn’t disturb their peace. During the hottest part of the day, the doe nudged her fawn into the bushes of the greenbelt that surrounds our home.
I peeked out the window several times that day, watching the twitching ears of the hidden fawn under the brush. Later that evening, I noticed the protective doe behind a sycamore tree, just a few feet away from her newborn spotted fawn. (read more)
Do you think it’s a good idea to submit guest post for other writers’ blogs? Why or why not?
