I’m posting this because I have been receiving a lot of emails from people who offer basically the same thing. Occasionally I reply to their emails, telling them that I provide all content on my ad-free site, but most of the time I just hit the delete button. A week later I can always expect to receive a follow-up email inquiring as to whether or not I received their email.
To paraphrase a typical solicitation:
I’m (insert name) and I write a blog called (insert blog name here). I’ve been reading your blog and I must say, y
ou are not only a very handsome mann, but also very powerful.I really enjoy your awesomearticles.
I’m writing to you because I am interesting in providing a guest article I’ve written titled, (insert article title here). I think it will be a great fit for your readers. I’m happy to also write something completely new if you prefer. Oh, and my article will be chock full of sponsored links, too. We’ll both get rich!
Please let me know—I look forward to hearing back from you!
(insert name here)
(insert website here)
If these folks really do read my articles (and my hunch is that they do not), they’ll see this one. And if not, I can simply paste a link to this notice in a reply to their email.
As you were.
