    Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.

      Hi Kathleen,

      Thank you for your interest – I have not yet had any guest posters here at Unleashing The Tiger. If you would like to connect on Facebook, feel free to send me a message outlining areas that you would propose covering.

      Articles should fit into one of the key categories (see the menu above!) and should ‘add value’ for the reader. Any article that I publish should provide good insight into the subject matter.

      Kind regards,
      Dean.

    Hi dean enjoyed reading your post.
    Very inspiring am in the process at the moment of just setting up my first niche site. Will admit I just stumbled across your post while doing some research for my site. Sounds like you have had avery busy career. Mine is just starting hopefully. I think motivation is a big aspect when starting something new. Or should I say staying motivated when things inevitably go slower than you would hope.

    Thanks again will check out your twitter link.

    Hi dean just to let you know since my last comment on starting in the online game. I have used your site a few times as motivation to forge ahead and not slow down as once you do it’s harder to get going again.

    So for that thanks
