Thereafter, you need to look at the entire blog and find out whether or not the owner is updating it often (you will reap the best results from guest blogging if you were to submit a post on a blog that is updated regularly by the owner).

You will also want to tell the owner the topics that you can write about (along with how they can benefit his/her readers). Read Importance of Guest Posting in SEO
