Dear Guest Posting Inquirer;
Sorry, but today I'm on a rant!!! I've received one too many angry emails. Everyday I get at least a few emails inquiring about guest posting on my blog. Sometimes I get follow-ups to the follow-ups from now angry people because I didn't respond to their query. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to respond to all of these emails.
I will admit, I'm VERY picky about what gets posted on my sites!!! I value my readers most of all and I value my time. I very rarely allow guest posting on any of my sites and I ONLY consider it when I get an original, well-written query.
If I had more time in my day, I would write more of my own posts. Therefore I don't have time to re-write your posts to fix grammar, spelling and punctuation or to make them appropriate for my site when you clearly know nothing about the nursing profession.
Google doesn't like spammy sites full of poor quality postings and lots of links to sites that may or may not have any relevance. It's not easy to keep up with these issues and be able to provide a site that I hope is useful to nurses and those who are considering becoming nurses.
If your bottom line is to advertise your site, contact me about advertising. We can work something out.
If you just want a link to your site, contact me about adding you to the Blog Roll page.
I found this terrific posting today, 7 Phrases That Make Me Ignore Your Guest Post Query, and I think it's important to bring to the attention of all who aspire to write for blogs, websites, print publications, etc. Read it, and learn from it. And before you send me another nasty email... read it again, please! Remember.... I didn't invite you to query in the first place.
