    Make sure when someone lands on your site that you do a good job of advertising that you want guest blog posts.

    Then visit communities like Comluv.com and start commenting on everyone's guest blog posts. Try to be one of the first people to comment on a new blog post there. Leave good comments that are thoughtful and appropriate for the pages you are commenting on. That will attract people to your site. Those people are more likely to want to guest blog on your site.

    That website is full of guest blog posts. So you could also contact the guest blog authors that publish there. Contact them directly and offer them the opportunity to publish on your site.

    You could do a Fiverr.com gig too advertising that you will allow 2 guest blog posts per gig as long as they are very high quality blog posts.

    Don't expect to get very many guest blog offers right away. It will take time for word to get around. It will take months.

    If you administer a dedicated Facebook page for your blog, you can might as well request your members (friend list) to help you out with guest posting. Ok, I may sound like a greenhorn, but I guess this method should work well enough.

    If you are in some Facebook groups that have members that might be interested in doing this you can post up what you are looking for there and hopefully get some interested people.

    You can also join some blogging groups in Facebook and/or Google+ and let the group know that you are accepting guest posters in them. This would be a great way to get bloggers interested in contributing to your blog.

    Cheers, Dean.

    One of our top members, @vishwa uses Google+ to get some guest posters for his internet marketing blog so I know that Google+ can work well for that.

    One thing that I didn't see mentioned that can help attract some guest bloggers for your blog is to post in the classifieds or other proper sections of forums where there might be some bloggers that might be interested in this.

    Many people do not realize just how much traffic most forums receive each month so posting on forums that you are looking for guest bloggers might do quite well.

    You can also add that you are looking for guest bloggers in the signature area on your account on the forums that allow it.

    Cheers, Dean.

    I think that Facebook groups would be a real good place to find them. Try and get into some of the big blogging groups and then you can try to see if you can get people from the group to do some guest blogging.

    I have wondered this myself. I want to start a blog for new internet marketers but don't know how to attract people for that niche.

    I think if you can get into some facebook groups that are blogging groups or maybe even some freelancer groups then you can get some guest bloggers.

    I think you use social media sites for your blog.

    I often will get emails from other blog owners that have seen my blog and have one in a similar or the same niche asking about guest blogging and posts so I think that you can probably get people to do some guest blogging for your blog by contacting some of the owners of related blogs.

    I would just make sure that you don't present yourself in a desperate or junky way.
