I've looked through the threads and haven't seen anything that could potentially answer this question. So if I missed it, please let me know and I'll delete this one.
My blog has been getting more traction, which I am excited about, as I understand it can be a slow process. I've had two individuals approach me regarding potentially guest posting on my site. One of which emailed me about 4 days (and then 2 times in between) ago and has now withdrawn her offer; although, she did say I could contact her in the future. Life happened and I didn't have the chance to write her back in time. So my questions are:
1. Is it reasonable to expect a few days before bloggers are able to respond to one's request? If so, should I add a disclaimer stating that it may take me 7-10 days to respond.
2. How do I vet a potential guest blogger? I don't want to end up being taken advantage of, because I am a fairly new blogger and allow some person with fraudulent credentials guest post on my blog.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
