Hi! You may know me as the friendly publisher of a blog, and you’ve tried to get me to post something of yours on my blog.
I got your request. And I noticed that it wanted me to link to your product or service.
And quite frankly, that isn’t what I do.
If you really want me to mention your site, I can do so like I did for OmniBuzz Media. My article is (the last time I checked) the second result on Google for “Omnibuzz Media”.
Maybe that isn’t the smartest way to run a blog. Maybe I’m shooting myself in the foot here by not monetizing things more.
But really? I’m just not interested. I blog because I feel like it, about things that I think are interesting or need talked about.
If your request had caught my attention, I would have replied. Instead, you’re wasting my time and yours.
So again, I repeat to you:
My credibility is not for sale.
Also: Your EULA doesn’t apply: http://bit.ly/noeula
And yes, this is a form letter.
