Guest Post Ultra-Marathon: The Complete List



When I started this project, it was to help me through a bad stretch with Tourette’s Syndrome.  When my symptoms became more manageable, I continued the project just because it was so much fun.

I slowed down towards the end of the six weeks due to other obligations, but I will be writing guest posts for everyone who requested one.  If I didn’t get to you yet, don’t worry–you’re still in a queue and I’m working my way through it every day.

With that, here are the 42 guest posts I had published in just over six weeks.  Thank you to everyone who has participated.  I encourage everyone who reads this to go check out these wonderful blogs if you’re not familiar with them yet.

    I love how you share yourself with the world – no matter how you’re feeling. You kept your word. You said you would complete this guest post marathon and you did. Your post on ThatGirlisFunny currently 5th on my Top 10 List of Popular Posts with 400 views! My blog is still new (started August 18th). I am deeply honored that you would consider writing for a newbie blogger. Your post drew a great deal of attention to my blog! That same week, a different post (about the Rock the Ink: Miss Tattoo competition) got stumbled and is now at over 3,500 views). I’ll always believe that you brought good luck and positive attention with you and left it forever on ThatGirlisFunny. You’ve encouraged me to ask other bloggers to contribute to TGIF. I no longer believe that people won’t want to guest post because my blog is new. God gave you a difficult challenge (Tourette’s) to deal with. He gives his toughest situations to his best warriors. Rock on, Kettle Bell King!

      Cheryl, I appreciate it. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. Now–when are you going to write something for me?

  • Oleg Mokhov November 1, 2009, 9:37 am

    Hey Josh,

    A large quantity of quality guest posts can effectively build your name and reputation in a short amount of time.

    You’re a beast. Indeed, the World’s Strongest Librarian. Or should I say, Writer? 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing my guest post here later this week. I hope it provides your readers with tons of value and discussion. Thanks again for the opportunity.


    • Josh Hanagarne November 1, 2009, 12:23 pm

      @Oleg, your post will run on Tuesday. This was such a cool way to meet people.

      @Srnivas: Feel free to steal it, but be aware of what you’re getting into. I’m writing a post for copyblogger about it right now. Make sure you love to write and you have some realistic expectations of what you’re up to.

      @Lisis: I’m surprised at how many writers have an aversion to guest posting. The benefit of it is pretty staggering. I understand why not every wants to do a marathon like this, but once you start guesting, you’ll realize how much easier it makes things when you just start stealing–or sharing–someone else’s traffic:) Come write something for me!

      • Lisis November 1, 2009, 2:45 pm

        Don’t tempt me, Josh… I’m feeling vulnerable today ’cause I just unveiled my second guest post at Porsidan. You wouldn’t be taking advantage of my moment of weakness, would you?


        • Josh Hanagarne November 1, 2009, 3:47 pm

          Of course not. But I will be heading over to Porsidan to heckle you.

  • Srinivas Rao November 1, 2009, 9:41 am

    Nice List Josh. Thanks for including me in in it. This looks like a great way to promote your other content in other places on your own blog. I may have to steal it if you don’t mind :). I’m gonna have to actually sit down and make the time to go through all of these.


  • Lisis November 1, 2009, 12:06 pm

    Wow! I am so impressed, it’s not even funny. Seriously, because I have this nearly-psychotic aversion to guest posting, and you just grabbed this beast by the horns and made it your b… big success story. 🙂

    Well, anyway, incredibly awesome list and hellacious achievement.

  • Casey Brazeal (North and Clark) November 1, 2009, 12:43 pm

    One of these days I will get my productivity up to your level, by then I will probably also be able to move objects with my mind.

    Thanks so much for including me in your marathon, I hope the connections you make through this process serve you well for years to come.

  • Daisy November 1, 2009, 1:26 pm

    Josh, thank you for guest posting on Compost Happens! I appreciated your return to check comments. It was a great post and a very positive experience.

    • Josh Hanagarne November 1, 2009, 2:02 pm

      @Daisy: Agreed and agreed and agreed. Responding to comments was on one of my favorite parts of this project.

      @Casey: If your productivity gets to this level, it probably means you have a neurological disorder. Careful what you wish for:)

  • Zeenat{Positive Provocations} November 1, 2009, 2:08 pm

    Oh my God…Josh..seriously so many guest posts…youre indeed the worlds strongest or should i say most determined writer. I love to write too..but so many….in such a short time…Kudos to you man !!!!
    Am gonna check out these posts for sure. Lots of reading for me to catch up on 🙂

    • Josh Hanagarne November 1, 2009, 2:33 pm

      Thanks Zeenat. You’ll meet some very cool people.

  • Iain Broome November 2, 2009, 4:06 am

    Incredible post rate Josh – very impressive.

    The thing I like the most about what you’ve achieved is your tone of voice has remained consistent throughout. Not easy that, you know. And I think it’s your ‘voice’ that makes your blog stand out.

    Keep at it (in a non-patronising way). Lovely stuff.

    • Josh Hanagarne November 2, 2009, 10:41 am

      Thanks Iain. I couldn’t ask for better validation of what I’m trying to be–consistent. I hear a lot about voice and I think it’s one of the few things that can’t be taught. That is good news and bad.

      @Joe D: Go go go. If not now, when?

  • Joe D. November 2, 2009, 8:14 am

    Hey Josh—
    Thanks for the inspiration today to get off my butt and take a little action. As a newbie blogger, I have not really taken advantage of posting frequency, with only several posts published within the last couple of months. Whether its the fact that I’m concentrating on writing longer posts, or just don’t think briefer posts written off the top of my head would be good enough to be included, I have, in the case of my blog, not brought it.

    Here’s to blocking and tackling the excuses and distractions, and writing something well today. Thanks again!

  • Mike T Nelson November 2, 2009, 4:26 pm

    Great stuff man and thanks for the great article you wrote me. Much appreciated!!!

    Rock on

  • Christa Avampato November 2, 2009, 9:04 pm

    WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! 46 posts in 6 weeks. AMAZING. A testament that there is no limit to how prolific a writer you can be. Truly inspiring!

    • Josh Hanagarne November 2, 2009, 9:06 pm

      Easy there Christa! The site of all those capital letters knocked my glasses off one ear. But thank you. And believe me, there’s a limit to my prolifictasticity. But it came later rather than sooner. When are you going to write something for me?

  • Christa Avampato November 2, 2009, 9:23 pm

    Sorry Josh – I have an excitement disorder that comes on whenever I read something incredibly cool and inspiring 🙂

    I would LOVE to write something for you. Just say the word!

    • Josh Hanagarne November 2, 2009, 9:48 pm

      Consider it said. Send me an email if you need a prompt.

  • Karina November 5, 2009, 4:22 pm

    Wow. Impressive. I just got to your blog today from another blog which I found through another blog and so on. I’m glad I landed here! It’s nice to know that some people still do blog posts even if you don’t have 500 or more subscribers. I read quite a few blogs that all state the above. Your statement was refreshing, because I didn’t see that. Give me some hope that someone will one day write a guest blog for me, even though I have 499 subscribers to go to reach 500. Ah well, I guess what can I expect from having just launched my blog a week ago? 🙂 Plus, when I look at what I knew about starting a blog a week ago – which was nothing – to what I know now, I must say I’m quite happy. Plus, 1 subscriber? I mean, really? Wow. I wish I knew who he/she was so I could plan a big kiss on their forehead. Then again, they might not enjoy that. Ah, 2:21 am, I’m rambling.

    Basically, I just wanted to say that reading your post was refreshing, and you can know now that I will keep reading. Lovely, lovely.

    • Josh Hanagarne November 5, 2009, 4:50 pm

      Hi Karina, welcome to the party! I think it’s fun to get out there and meet people and bloggers and blogs. Traffic isn’t everything, but I’m not a businessman. Glad you made it.

      • Karina November 5, 2009, 5:32 pm

        Thank you, number two! 🙂

  • Sarge November 8, 2009, 3:44 am

    Impressive and inspiring!

    Great job 🙂 You’ve really motivated me. I just finished writing my first guest post today (hopefully it goes up) I aim to get a few more done this month.

    I really love setting challenges like this. Again, great job!

    • Josh Hanagarne November 8, 2009, 8:49 am

      Sarge, let me know how it goes. Just keep marching forward.
