My opt-ins have skyrocketed seven fold after each PB guest post.
My blogging rep grew over night each time I have guest posted on PB.
Sure, Google is cracking down on guest posting a bit....I guess....but as long as you stick to your niche, guest posting leverages your presence like few other practices.

Massive mistake. You will be writing for crickets until you learn how to tap into leveraging via guest posting.
Practice writing on your blog and guest post frequently to be discovered. Worked for me, and it has worked for many other bloggers too.
If you have 0 readers, and I have 60, or 100, or 10,000, or 100,000 you darn well better butter me up and submit kick butt posts my way....to leverage your presence quickly
