I have also mentioned that people affiliated with these sites sometimes offer to write guest posts. Or they ask me to place an infographic.
Apparently they don’t do a lot of research. The post don’t really fit the topic of this blog and the writers don’t seem aware of my critical posts in the pasts.
Nevertheless, the number of requests keeps on growing. Sometimes I get 4-5 a day. Really ridiculous…
They don’t seem discouraged by my lack of response.
The letters are usually quite impersonal (they just found a wordpress-tag for instance).
While doing research for an online educational resource I write for, I ran across your blog and thought you may be interested in an idea for a post I have been thinking about.
The fate of schools in California is tied to the financial health of the state and because of years of economic downturn and recession, the state can no longer support the schools and the price of tuition is skyrocketing. This is making attending college considerably more difficult for many qualified applicants.
I would love to write about this for your blog. Let me know if you’re interested and I will send you a full outline.
Lately I’m also informed about dead links at my blog. How kind. Three guesses which link is offered instead…..
Hi Laika Spoetnik,
I came across your website and wanted to notify you about a broken link on your page in case you weren’t aware of it. The link on http://laikaspoetnik.wordpress.com/2009/06 which links to http://www.visi.com/juan/congress is no longer working. I’ve included a link to a useful page on Members of Congress that you could replace the broken link with if you’re interested in updating your website. Thanks for providing a great resource!

p.s. ( as far as I know I never linked to visi com, and 2009/6 is not a single post, but many..)
