One good way is to first find a category that relates to your niche and then go through the blogs which are listed in the category. While not all will accept guest posts, some may happily do. Once done, you need to get in touch with the blog owner and present your blog idea. Then wait for their response. As a better option present 2 or 3 article ideas so the blog owner can choose the best one.
