I allowed myself to get excited for a second when I received an email to be a guest blog author for a certain blog. I should have known that it wasn’t legit! First, I didn’t follow the blog nor did it follow mine. As you, my readers, know that I post photos, some artwork, my Havamal study, short stories, and journal stuff (like weight loss and this post just to example a bit) and nothing really to do with the subject matter of this blog. I have been wanting to guest post on other blogs, submit short stories, you know to gain some confidence and exposure. This wasn’t it. This was a big ol’ slab of SPAM!
I checked out the blog when I noticed that it doesn’t have any of my interests posted or even in the same genre of things I like. When asked what would be given for my time the reply was, gratitude and free hosting.’ WTF! I already pay for mine and I have tons of posts and readers that follow me and I follow them some of which I feel are great blogging friends. Why would I write for a no-name blog that barely has 5 posts?
My excitement went to feeling like guest writing/blogging will never be a goal that I’ll meet to screw it…moving on. Has anyone else experienced this type of spam?
