Completing MyBlogU profile will accomplish two important missions:
[Do your own editing!]
You are not answering an email: You are providing an answer which is going to be published. So skip “hey there, nice to meet you.. here’s my answer…” part and go directly to the answer.
The more straightforward your answer is, the more chances you have to be included in the live article. @Don_Sturgill’s group interview is the perfect example of the really useful answers: GREAT job!
Don’t forget to proof-read and re-read before hitting “Next question” button!
We want you to love the process. If you can’t seem to know a good answer, give it some time. I like our @EP_pturner‘s approach:
I check MyBlogU every morning and afternoon. I check the forum, brainstorms and interviews for new help requests; none of the requests are urgent, but my brain multi-tasks and works away on these requests in the background.
I never reply immediately, but think about things for a few days and then start typing.
On the other hand, don’t feel bad about typing too much. Try to go as indepth as you can. If you are passionate about the topic, feel free to tell as much as you want.
Happy getting featured in expert interviews! You deserve being cited as an expert!
We were pursuing the following rules when creating the functionality:
MyBlogU allows you to collect expert quotes to use in your articles. This way is article is almost written for you by your contributors but you are still encouraged to format and edit the final piece to make it awesome.
Also, it is very important which questions you are asking. Open questions will prompt experts to provide longer answers. Also make sure you spur some contradiction or irony. Asking about personal experience always works great. Make sure to ask for specifics (tools, screenshots, etc) to get more details from your contributors.
Once you have enough answers, you can put them together in an article with one click of a mouse. Easy and free!
MyBlogU is willing to help you on multiple levels: Develop your content, connect you to experts, help you brainstorm, and of course “socialize” your content by making it share-friendlier. Let’s see how you can get your page retweeted if you add a group interview component to your content
