Since past few years, I have been celebrating the last month of the year with a cross guest post collaboration with my blogger friends across the board. The idea is to make new connects, promote good writing and read some really good content. This cross posting is great for blog traffic and SEO too. All in all a win-win!!!
How does it work?
I am looking for 27 bloggers who will each write a guest post on a mutually agreed topic. These posts will go live one by one daily, all month. Everyday, I will tag the next blogger in line at the end of the post whose guest post will be uploaded the next day.
In return, I will write a cross post for each blogger on a topic similar to my blogging niches. And everyday, each blogger will post my guest post on their blog in the month of December. The day will correspond with the day their guest post goes live on my blog.
Note: No posting on Sundays
What will be the topics for the guest posts?
Since I blog in two main niches – Travel and Books; the guest posts will be based on these two only. One can get very creative with the content under these two headings. Everyone can make their blogging niche work under these two categories. So the collaboration is not restricted to just Travel and Book bloggers.
For example: A food blogger might want to collaborate but will wonder how to write on these topics. No worries. Write about the recipe of a local food that you sampled on a travel trip and just loved. Or describe the various cuisines/dishes tried by you on a vacation and how you compare it with your own cuisine.
Examples of Travel related posts
- Write about the shopping you did on your last trip and picked up some treasures.

Examples of Book related posts
- 5 books you will love to read if you like Harry Potter
- Your top 5 reads by women authors / women protagonists this year and which one impressed you the most, review that one.

- A book revolving around Transgender / LGBTQ issues
- How did the pandemic affect your reading habit

I am looking for creative posts and there is no wrong post here. The content should revolve around my blogging niches of Travel and Books. That’s why I said we will mutually work on the topic.
