    Another tip for having your proposal to supply a guest article on another blog accepted, & more importantly, published is to simply follow the blogger on Twitter, RT a couple of their previous posts, maybe a Facebook like or two etc. If they are a genuine blogger, thus one you actually WANT your content on their blog, then they will notice, and your success rate skyrockets.
