What Anorexia Taught Me about Guest Blogging

anorexic tendency of guest bloggers, tips to guest posting


Throughout my teenage years and early 20’s, I hated the way I looked. Mum was always going on a different diet, so I would copy what she was doing. She was smaller than me, but always thought she needed to lose weight. I eventually thought that her craving to lose weight was actually a normal thing.

So, I found myself engaging in a crash fat loss program only for me to go back to binge eating-hence putting on all the weight I had initially lost. Adapted from the article: "How my mum’s body issues affected me"

The above scenario if we are true to ourselves is what often pan’s out in our guest posting strategy.

One question we may actually be asking ourselves is: what relationship does anorexia have with guest posting?

In order to prove this relationship, I will outline:

5 Anorexic Mistakes to Implementing a Successful Guest Posting Strategy

1. Obsession: Just like an anorexic patient who has an obsessive desire to remain thin while engaging in binge eating and crash loss-weight programs; many new guest posters tend to have an obsessive desire about sending out guest post.

Their obsession arises from the desire to drive traffic to their site in a short period of time. This, in essence, relates to the anorexia patient desire to lose weight within the shortest time possible.

While their aim of driving traffic to their blog is the ultimate desire of any guest posting strategy, pitching guest posts to any blog without regards to the rule and regulation guiding the posting of articles on the target blog is bad.

This is the reason most newbie’s’ fail in their guest posting campaign.

2. Low Self Esteem

Anorexics are people who suffer low esteem. They do not believe they are beautiful.

So, in order to offset their ingrained thinking of being fat they starve themselves all day. This can also be seen in writers who have refused to pitch guest post because they lack self-esteem.

They sometimes forget that confidence in writing is the actual difference between a successful writer and an aspiring writer.

According to Bamidele Oni “Self confidence is the most powerful weapon that a writer can have” while Thug Yau said:

“To inspire confidence, surround yourself with successful writers -use the social media to network successful authors.

Fighting low self-esteem is a great step to becoming a successful writer.

3. Not Sharing

They say a problem half shared is a problem half solved, but I feel the best thing is acknowledging you have a problem; however most patients of anorexia do not share their fears and challenges.

The inability to share your fears and challenges is worth overcoming. This is because sharing your problem will make people support you when you feel like giving up.

This same thing can be seen in many guest posting campaign where newbie’s due to lack of information or poor social media strategy fail to promote their guest post online.

Sharing your guest post through the social media like LinkedIn, twitter, and facebook is a great way of publicizing yourself and not just through the link made available to you on the guest blog post.

4. Non-Persistence

My parents are anorexics; that why I am anorexic.

Many times we let preconceived notions determine our fate. We shy away from determining our destiny; we just let fate happen to us. And this is very sad.

Why don’t you make a conscious effort not to fall a victim of the anorexia that your mum suffered?

Determination is the bedrock of success.

The above illustration can be seen in some people’s guest posting attempt.

They make statements like: “I was rejected…….. Guest posting is not for me”

They do not want to be persistent. They fail to ask the right question. They fail to evaluate themselves. They fail to know why it happened, what critical variable triggered the mistake.

And worst of all, they fail to think of a way to mitigate the mistake. They just sit-down like paraplegics and allow fate to happen to them.

5. No Feed Back

There are times when we feel we have finally overcome a challenge.

Then we tend to feel like gods.

This has been observed in former anorexics who feel they have beaten the rap but fail to re-evaluate themselves from time to time.

Re-evaluation does not mean that you are scared. It only means you are working to prevent re-occurrence. In order to re-evaluate oneself, it is good you ask a support group to analyze your habits from time to time. It can be every two months or as you deem fit.

Guest poster and bloggers are also guilty of “No Feed Back”. They fail to respond to comments as at when due. They fail to understand that replying to comment makes you stand out as an authority figure while also making you popular.

Importance of Language transcription services for Nigerian Business

Language transcription services involve creating textual records of either video or audio recording or other texts written in a different language to that of your choice. It can be recordings of meetings, or conferences. Or it can be a business document written in another language.
Why is Transcription Important?
With the growth of Artificial Intelligence, many business people fail to appreciate the importance of language transcription services.
They feel that automated machine can do the needful work. This assumption is quite far from the truth –reasons being that; there is an extent to which a machine will be able to transcribe sound into text.
Also the ability of a machine to understand the syntax of another language and for it to thereafter ensure that the syntax is retained in the new language it is converted to -is difficult to achieve. This is another reason why transcription services are important.
Transcription services are also important because they help portray an organization as professional.
The use of transcription service providers’ shows your intending business partner that you are likely a legitimate person.

Company A communicated their proposal in Hungarian while Company B did so in English.
To be specific, the proposal of company A suggest a cost of  $1.25 million to complete the project while company B suggest a proposal of $1.22 million to complete the project.
According to their bid rules, it isn’t a crime to choose a higher cost to execute a contract even if both firms bidding are considered to have the necessary technical know-how to execute the project TO A
From the above example, the person most likely to win the bid will be company A because they wrote their proposal in Hungarian.
The reason is simply because of ease of communication. So we can also agree that transcribing your work into the language of a business partner also helps communication.
