We recently found your
blog, and were very impressed by it. My partner and I are in the
process of building a food blogging destination site, where we will
feature content from high quality bloggers. The layout of the site will
be like a newspaper, which we think will add legitimacy to our content.
We will have multiple themes all related to the food industry, ranging
from food sourcing, restuarants, recipes, etc. Much like a real
newspaper's website, but focused on the culinary world.
We believe your blog could be a valuable addition
to our website, and we would like your permission to use your blog
content. Your blogs would be part of a highly reputable site, where
only high quality content is delivered to an audience who is interested
in a wide variety of culinary news.. We will be marketing our site
aggressively, so your blogs would reach a much larger audience than
they reach currently. Any content from you would reflect your name
(real or blog, up to you), a picture, a bio, etc. We hope to have our
bloggers become recognized names and personalities, and not just be
goal is to upload your blogs through an RSS feed each day. We won't
require you to write more than you do now, although since we like what
we see, the more the better!
you will consider this opportunity to reach a large audience with your
excellent blogs. We are currently in the process of building the site,
but are trying to get bloggers on board now. Please let us know your
thoughts, and if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing
from you. (Redacted) & Redacted. I do, actually have questions, but thought I might better pose them to Codland: 1) Are they serious? 2) Did I miss the part where I get kissed? 3) How is it that the form of a newspaper will give them "legitimacy"? 4) Should I be relieved that I would not be "required to write more than I do now"? I welcome answers in the comments.
