It’s always been amazing to me how people seem to be queueing up to write guest posts for this place in exchange for an unspecified quantity of coin of the realm. I used to turn them down politely; after the first hundred or so, I started kicking them into the spam trap.
[L]ately, I’ve received some solicitations from people wanting to write guest posts for this blog.
One in particular recently involved posts on the subject of wholesale warehouse selling tips.
I’ve been writing this blog for 13 years now, and after more than 5,000 posts, I don’t remember the specifics of each individual post for obvious reasons. But still, I’d wager that if you were to go post by post through this blog, you’d find that not one time in 13 years have I ever written about wholesale warehouse sales.
Based on my experience over here, if he’d written even once about wholesale warehouse sales, he’d have gotten not only a guest-post offer, but a request for a link from someone who routinely writes on the subject and thinks “this would be a useful resource for your users.”
And if all these requests seem to look the same, well, there’s a reason for that:
[W]hen multiple emails start arriving, all with the similar form, and all proposing unrelated topics or no topics at all, it’s difficult to ignore the pattern.
Maybe this is some form of blogger spam.
