Amen! I get every one of those pitches you quote in your header almost every day. If one person in 100 has actually looked at the blog and knows what kind of content we run, it’s an extrordinary week. A publishing industry blog is not going to run a post on new trends in makeup. Why bother? Do these people feed on rejection? I’d like to add: Don’t ask the blogger or editor for the guest post guidelines. Read them on the site! Asking me to retype the guidelines for every single Bozo who can’t bother to read them in the first place makes me furious. I’m thinking of closing down to all guest posts.
