Dear so and so who wants to spread links to various bloggers over the internet,
If you send me an email requesting that I must read this current new article that is live on some site, with a link included, I will not click it!
Here is why -
- I am not giving you free traffic to that website
- I am not allowing you to get credit for being paid to email me over and over about this link (hence why I will not click it)
- If you are being paid to email me, then you can either pay me to help spread the word too or you can stop assuming that this site is my hobby – it’s both (income & hobby)
- DO not expect me to feel bad for you if you are “simply trying to bring more awareness of your name or writing” when you are not willing to pay to have your writing out there (with a link to a client/your company website within that “writing”)
I love people who have a skill for writing. I am all for supporting bloggers, but I simply can not support those who slam me with links in my contact form begging or being sneaky about trying to gain free traffic and exposure for their company or client!
