Do you want to make more money?
I keep getting all of these mails in my inbox, telling me that I could be doing better with this blog, making all kinds of money, etc. Getting asked the question “Do you want to make more money?” (Umm duh? Doesn’t everyone?) How to make my BUSINESS run for me better… I know that, you know that, and I do on a different blog I run. It’s not in the millions, but it does help augment my income a little bit.
It’s ironically funny that these people who send me these mails on a daily basis expect me to do business with them when they cannot even pay attention to small detail. Damn my OCD!
As most of you know, this is merely a hobby blog for me. It is merely an outlet to write when I feel like it, about whatever I want to write about that doesn’t involve any of my books or my actual job. This website allows me, Bri, the ability to talk in her NORMAL voice, and not the Bri business and work ethic voice. Everyone needs to take off that business type suit and wear sweats and a t-shirt once in a while, right?
Why I have this blog is clearly outlined in the about me page on this website. You don’t even have to go that far to see that this is a hobby blog. All you have to do is read to your right hand side, the little about me box in the side bar.
“Hi, there! I am Bri K and you have stumbled upon my hobby blog!”
I assumed that was pretty clear, and for someone who wants me to give them my business, having a small detail like that MISSED is a total joke. If you cannot bother to read and notice something that is clearly stated IN AN EASY TO SEE AREA, than you need to question your own business integrity. If you want to run your own business, and tell other people how to run their own website, maybe you should actually look at content that is clearly in your face before making your business approach?
Maybe I am wrong about that? I don’t know, but last time I did a business pitch to someone else, I had made sure I was well-informed about their needs. Maybe my OCD makes me pay attention to the small, fine details that make a difference? I honestly thought that was just the way business should be conducted! Opps, my bad?
One of these mails even stated something that made me choke on my coffee… Yes, it was funny, but it was more annoying then funny after a few moments.
“You have no quality content on your site. Your content is not good for business, you are too personal and have too many topics that don’t relate to good business practices. You can contact me at ——-. I can help you make a lot more money.”
So how about them apples? Do you see why I got annoyed? My content may not be quality for a business blog, but I am not running a business. Again, I felt that I was pretty clear on that fact.
This blog is an outlet for me, mainly, even if I do enjoy spotlighting music and talking about food. Those are passions for me, if I had more time I could turn those things into a business, but I don’t want to. When you work as much as I do, taking things that you love that give you down time and frankly keep you sane, and turning them into a business, you find yourself hating those things. Ok, I relent, I do make money djing, but I love it so much, it’s not a job. It’s all about the music and being social for me, and I refuse to turn it into a job, thank you very much.
Dear moron that keeps sending me irrelevant mails about how I am bad at business,
Please read things in the future before sending a business pitch to someone. Small details do matter, and make you look like you have some semblance of intelligence. Know your targets before sending them a kazillion pieces of spam monthly. When you fail to do that, not only do you come off as a pest, you end up with foot in the mouth disease, not to mention looking like an idiot.
Do you want to make more money? PAY ATTENTION TO SMALL DETAILS!
It would also prevent you, Ms. can’t pay attention but still wants to pretend to make money stay off of people’s naughty lists, and prevent you from getting one of these…
I hearby dub thee CHRONICALLY MORONIC, PERPETUALLY STUNNED! Here’s your award!
I get those on my blog too. I wonder if it’s the same person? I am glad an award was gave out!
I get them from a few, of them. Some of them are intelligent enough to actually say “If you ever want to monetize your blog, contact me.” Those I reply to in a positive way. The others who send the mails like the one I quoted, get told off. I am polite about it, most of the time. The one that doesn’t seem to get it through her thick skull, or doesn’t keep good records to know who she has already contacted on an almost daily basis is the one that prompted this post. She’s been sending me the same mail almost daily.
Thank you for commenting, I am sorry you are dealing with it also. Hopefully she reads this post tomorrow and realizes it is about her and stops. Although, I really doubt it since she doesn’t seem to know how to read anything on a website, or responses to her mails.
