When selecting a blog writer the blog owner needs to weigh the writer's experience, professional attitude, as well as making sure they are reliable in creating interesting and informative blog content when your blog needs the content.  The blog owner may want to pick past subjects of the blog and have the writer write a blog post on the subject.   This could be very helpful in making sure that the writer knows the subject matter and writes in a manner similar to past blog posts.  Blog owners should also ask for references of writers to get a feeling for the writer's work ethic, experience and ability to complete projects on a timely basis.
Blog owners need to consider compensating the guest blogger, in terms of how much.  It should be based on the writer's experience, ability to complete projects on a timely manner, and the writers quality of work.  The blog owner can pay the writer in financial compensation which would be the traditional route to take.  But depending on the length of time that the writer is needed for blogs posts the blog owner may want to pay the blogger in free advertising.  This would entail having the blogger create a biography at the end of each of their postings with a link to their website.  The blog owner may want to consider a combination of financial compensation and free advertising.  Whatever the method of compensation, a contract should be drawn up detailing the terms of the project as well as the terms of the compensation.  This contract should be signed and notarized to avoid any future disputes.
