Guest blogging is incredibly fun for multiple reasons.
1.) It allows you to meet new people, find a sense of community and share in things & topics you care about.
2.) It allows you to promote other great content creators and have your work promoted as well.
3.) It allows you to sometimes get outside of your creative comfort zone and write pieces and recipes that may not fit into your own blog.
Then there is the other circumstance, where the content you create on guest blogs will be content that would speak greatly to your readers as well. Now, it is bad form to publish content you've written for another site on your own personal site, but I do like to however point my readers to content that I write that is useful or tasty.
In this case, I believe this to be useful.
