Odd Guest Post Inquiries
I have started accepting guest posts on my website and sometimes get messages from people in niches nothing like mine asking to post on my site.
These messages seem to be increasing. I used to respond to them but have stopped and made that clear on my guest post guidelines.
Here is an example of a message I got a few hours ago. My niche is child development.
I am Abe Whitney editor at https://premiumchefknives.com
I have been following your blog for quite some time now and I love your content and lessons you share with your readers. Every time I read a post, I feel like I’m able to take a single, clear lesson away from it, which is why I think it’s so great!
I believe I can add value to your audience on a few different topics and so I’ve included those topics, I think would really resonate your readers here:
1. 7 Best Kitchen Tools Every Home Cook Needs
2. The 4 Kitchen Knives Every Home Cook Should Own
3. Top 4 Best Electric Knife Sharpeners of 2017
Let me know if these titles seem interesting to you.
Thanks so much for considering my request! And I assure you, I will make this process as seamless as possible for you by sending you a formatted document with links included that you can copy and paste directly
I don't understand the point of this. Clearly this person has not been following my website. Are these people copying and pasting this message and sending it to any website accepting guest posts? Seems like such a waste of time.
I would love some thoughts on this. I assume I'm not the only one getting these messages.
