Any tips or tricks to getting guest posts online?

Do you have any tips or tricks to getting guest posts on other blogs? I'm stuck at this step and could really use some advice!

not really "tricks" per se, however, the best way to get guest posts is to start with really good content on your site. Other bloggers will always check out your content before letting you post on their blogs (the good ones anyway....). Next, start building relationships with the bloggers. Engage them on social media, comment on their blogs, help their readers, etc... if you give first, they will be more willing to work with you.

Find them on Facebook, Twitter, G+ and other social media sites and engage them. also look for them on blogging communities like BlogEngage.

Also, don't go for the biggest blogs in the niche if you are a total newbie, and nobody knows who you are. Find the middle level blogs, that have a good following but aren't the "gurus" in the niche. Once you prove yourself as a good guest poster, word travels pretty quickly.

Its hard work at first. however, once you are known to produce great blog posts for other bloggers, you will start getting invites from other bloggers. But, it takes some time to get there. for a great resource on guest posting, check out Bending The Web by Jack Humphreys. its an amazing resource that everyone online should read carefully.
