Hi, I'm looking to spread my wings into the wonderful world of guest blogging, not really after more work (I have plenty) but I enjoy sharing my knowledge and interacting with other folk.
Any sites you know of that welcome Guest Blogs relating to SEO and copywriting?
Thanks for your question, I think there are lots of websites always out for new articles to share with their readers! Sourcebottle is a great place to start looking for guest posting spots. I've done a few articles for Dynamic Business as well, and they seem fairly open to getting new writers providing that the content is of a certain quality.
We also welcome guest bloggers on our site, and you can submit an article easily by following this link: http://www.savvysme.com.au/article/create (you need to be logged in) We approve articles within 48 hours and you will get a notification of when it is approved and published.
We want to create a space where small business owners can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and not be afraid to start writing. Our community is welcoming of all sorts of content so there will always be eyeballs on the articles :).
I'm actually pretty excited, I've managed to get the team here to participate in an internal blogging challenge where we will blog everyday (weekday) for the month of January :)!! We have some new writers here, so it should be a great learning experience - we welcome any members at SavvySME to join us as well, and it's great to get more writing experience (even though you Ms Kate don't need it ;) ) and a great way to share your thoughts in a consistent manner.
I would love for you to join us and encourage other business owners and freelancers to take on this challenge and grow our comfort zones ;)!!

The best way to spread your wings in guest blogging, is to actually prospect and find guest blogging websites.
You can do this a few ways:
1. Create profiles on guest blogger/outreacher websites and pitch there. Here is a link to a top few - http://www.searchenginejournal.com/9-networks-you-can-use-for-guest-blogging-and-blogger-outreach-2/50801/
3. Once you refine and find a consistent pattern of new sites/contacts then you can try to see who their influencers are using tools like topsy of followerwonk to find similar website owners.
Otherwise in answer to your question maybe you can mimic Kristie Hines strategy and target the SEO heavy weight sites.
Are you signed up for Sourcebottle? There are always people looking for contributions and comments in a variety of fields!
Don't forget to sign up for the BloggerLinkUp, which has great blogs in a variety of niches. I used MyBlogGuest for awhile but it's a lot of sorting to find worthy sites to post on. Worth a look, though.
Thanks for Sourcebottle Kealey - I'll take a look at that.
One phrase. Go Grouphigh and you'll never go dry. This is quite a under-the-radar service offering but they are rolling it out across the US and slowly in Australia.
It's a fantastic platform for not only discovering guest bloggers but managing workflow processes in the goal of getting that valuable link pointing to your site. I am currently using it for my clients and lovin' it. Let me know what you think of it!
Happy to announce that we will be accepting new bloggers for 2013 including Savvy SME and many more SME owners. Our new site which you can view here - http://marketingbee.com.au/eweb2/ is going live in one week. I would be happy to have you as a guest blogger. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Looking forward to our collaboration!
I don't have any specific websites but, I've had some success with blog outreach by using different variations of Google search parameters.
Google Search: inurl:guest AND inurl:post + "Keyword"
Google Search: inurl:guest AND inurl:blog + "Keyword"
Hope that helps ;)
