Guest Writers, Helpful or Harmful?

I have recently stumbled upon several articles about getting guest bloggers to blog for your site. With a full time job and being in graduate school, the extra content would be great.I am currently trying to grow my baby blog and have gotten a request from my first guest blogger.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the help in getting content and would LOVE to help other start up blogs gain exposure to the little group of readers I have, but when do you say yes and when do you say no? Do you need to be sure the content matches perfectly with yours? 

How, when, and how often do you use guest bloggers? Do your readers seem to appreciate guest content?
