I am writing this for all the emails I get wanting me to use their services. This is a blanket disclaimer I will send out anytime I get offers for SEO or any other marketing offers./ This is also a test to see if they really want to help or just looking for money\ I especially am btargetinmg those companies who write me every few days saying, "We haven't heard back from you".
I registered "justinmattes.com" because I had lost another domain years earlier and I thought it would be a great idea to have a customized email address. The original address did point to this blog for the longest time. T hen I decided to build a website to display my writing and my license plate collection. I also hosted a few other projects off the website and occasionally used it as an "online storage". My writing especially because I intended to try to sell some of my poetry as well as list some of my articles published online and PDF copies of my printed work. The webhosting company I used for over 10 years gradually raised the hosting prices troo much and as of last September I cut ties. Knowing I still had the domain, I decided to I used it as a launching point. In hindsight I should have registered a ".org" address so web advertisers don't assume I'm this major company with 500 employees and a multimillion dollar Internet budget. This m,istake will haunt me forever, well so long as I have "justinmattes.com". However I gopt it now and am not letting it go
If you get a copy of this blog post it means you tried to sell me some kind of webservice. Let me save you the trouble and say I am not nor ever will be interested in on line marketing. The other thing is my product is only my writing and I have never seen media companies go to writer's websites to solicit article or any other work!!! I had my writing website up for years and never got an unsolicited request. You might think this is why I need your services, but trust me I can't afford them. Also whenever I ask for samples, all you give me is testimonials which can be easily doctored!
I al;so from time t o time get unsolicited emals for request to post a guest blog. I don't ghet paid for anything I post on this blog so l.ikewise I can't offer anyone any money to write a guest piece. Also all the opinions are my own..If you want to be helpful please direct people looking for writers to this blog. I am currently accepting arfticle request and have a pretty acceptable turn around rate.
A little background about me as a write r. I have been writing for thirty years. I started writing poetry in high school and upon graduation I did some freelancing while attending programming school. My writing topics vary between my hobbies and politicsl commentary. People have asked me to write biogrphaies and essays for loved ones. I have had my work published all over the Internet even translated into different languages! However I am far from making a living on it. Until that time comes, if it ever comes, I will not need your services. Thank you for emailing me and have a good day!
