It's too bad, because I think "All About Boners" would have won a Pulitzer

Once in a while I'll get these weird unsolicited requests from a professional writer from a marketing firm to do a guest post on my site that's all about them.

Like this:


Ugh.

First off:

I don't care if you're writing a dissertation on how you have discovered a new life form and that this new species will - once and for all - prove the existence of God himself...

...not a single person is taking your shit seriously if you start the conversation off with, "Howdy."

But I figured, eh, a guest post is a guest post is a day off for me, so I figured I'd take her up on her offer.







I've been wondering how her pitch ended up going, but I haven't heard back from her since.

She's probably off researching boners.

You know how these high-quality article writers can be sticklers for detail.

I'm so glad I don't have that issue.

Moog out.

That is hilarious!

Man I had a feeling she would reply again. I think you have to come to the conclusion that your penis might scare people, even when it's mentioned instead of shown.

I think you gave the perfect reply to her inquiry. It was particularly thoughtful of you to offer to help her with her research, should she choose "All About Boners" as her topic. You, Rodney, are a gentleman and a scholar!

hahaha I love that she answered back. This is GREAT! I've had those requests too but just delete them. You prove, constantly, how unoriginal I am and how lax I am in my opportunities to torture people.

I aspire to be like you one day.

Great response. Do these people not understand that a guest post does nothing for our readership and is not usually even in the spirit of what our blogs are all about. Who takes people up on this?

You will be covering the topics you suggested as titles, correct?

I'd love it if you did a guest post "All About Boners" on my site.

Charlotte Klein said...
