Tired of BLAM!




This is the second time this month that I've gotten blammed (spammed via my blog). Someone looking for a free medium to promote their stuff, writes an irrelevant comment or in this case simply pastes a press release into a blog post.

News alert! Spamming via blogs is one of the worst things you can do because most bloggers are influencers, which means we're just as likely to share bad vs. good news others.

Do me and all the bloggers out here a favor. Show some respect. If you want to use my blog as a mechanism for promoting your stuff.

1) email me first to see if I'm interested in what you have to sell
2) leave your name!
3) be genuinely interested in my work
