    Hey Sunanda,

    In terms of reaching out to guest bloggers, I find Twitter and email are your best bets - often because Twitter is the easiest point of contact to find. Rather than asking for a guest blog over a Tweet, I'd Tweet at them asking if you could contact them by email or through DM. 140 characters generally isn't enough to pitch a good guest blog request.

    In terms of actually asking for a post, share your blog and establish your credibility - tell them what you're looking for and any incentives you might be planning on exchanging for the post. Then suggest a couple topic ideas (casually) and ask if they'd be interested!

    Let me know if you have any more questions. :)

    I find that being really clear about past experience helps a lot. If someone is pitching me, I want them to tell me where I can find some of their biggest and most relevant bylines. Good luck!
