Message: Hello,
I found the information on your blog post insightful as I was researching and writing a series of articles about health sciences. As a contributor to several of the articles on my website relating to that topic, I believe that my resource covers many progressive topics in healthcare today including the cost of a medical education, incorporation of technology into health sciences today, and the continued efforts of public health as the global population continues to grow (albeit at a slowing pace).
I’d like to write a guest article on your blog about a topic relating to one of the topics that I’m conducted research in. Would you be interested in working with me on an article?
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best,
Jocelyn

I found the information on your blog post insightful as I was scouring the web for research on a higher education (specifically PhD-related) website that I write for. As a contributor to several of the articles on the site, I’m very interested in connecting the findings of rigorous academic research and higher-level philosophies to practical issues we face today.
I’d like to write a guest article on your blog about the topic I suggested above. Would you be interested in working with me on an article idea?
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Well, June, Jocelyn and Sofia: the answer is NO.

Who in their right mind would fall for such transparent flattering nonsense? I wonder if anyone has. Someone must, or the bots wouldn’t keep doing it.

Well, there is one born every minute. This turkey has fallen for it!  *

* And not such a turkey either! In fact that is a blog done by a professional in his field. Just goes to show. The guest entry is pure promotion of the guest writer’s commercial interest.
