If you’re finding it hard keeping up with writing content for your blog on a regular basis, then why not get others to help you?

WordPress make it easy to enable blog owners to invite contributors to write for their blog, and to give them access in a variety of levels. The highest level is the Administrator, of which the owner is automatically, and this provides full access to every part of the blog to make necessary changes.

The Administrator is able to invite other ‘users’ to gain access to their blog under certain restrictions. This consist of an Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber. What they can do is shown below:

And what each can see on their left hand sidebar also reveals their extent of access:

To find out how to add a ‘user’ to your blog, go to my visual e-course ‘Adding Contributors’. They will have to have accounts in WordPress to be able to join, so read this post on WordPress Accounts to find out how.

And it’s not only beneficial to the blog owner to have many sources writing posting material, contributing to another blog also brings more traffic to your own blog, as you will be reaching another type of audience that had been unavailable before. This can be accomplished through adequate and relevant links in your content, or in a suitable resources box at the end of your post, subject to approval by the Administrator.
