    Newbie question: Using other writers...
    I'm just starting out. Have my website up and currently working on content. New to this whole blogging thing also. Was just taking a break from my writing, and realized this process would be a whole lot quicker, easier, and I'd be able to attract a lot more people if I have others contributing. And I'm pretty sure I can easily do that.

    Is there any reason I might NOT want to do that, and are there any legal, ethical things I need to take into consideration? What I was planning to do was PM some of the more prolific writers on a forum a frequent, and just ask them if they'd like to contribute any articles related to my topic. I know more than one person who enjoys writing just for the sake of writing.

    Also, is there a blogging 101 resource I may be able to go to learn the basics about this? I'm wondering if my question above is what I'm supposed to be doing in the first place? And if this is beyond being a stupid question. Give it to me straight. I can handle it.

    Thoughts, please... and thanks in advance.

    What Rhia7 said.

    There is also a recent thread from sometime in the past month about the detriment and possible penalties that the G now may impose for guest blog posts. There are some pretty good articles on the subject linked there that you should look at.
