My name is Erin from Article Writing Services

A little googling goes a long way! Hover and click on the image to enlarge.

Some think Article Writing Services may be a bit shady...

Here's their pitch! (It appears either as an email or attached as a comment on an existing blog post) ::: Have YOU been contacted by Erin or Sarah or anyone else from this mysterious org? Let me know by dropping a comment!

My name is Erin from Article Writing Services. We have a client who would like to pay you for the opportunity to post some of their content on your website. All of the content is professionally produced and you can select from pieces relevant to your audience.

The result is you get some free, interesting content for your readers while getting paid.

In return our client is asking for one link that they specify at the bottom of the content (no porn or gambling). Feel free to contact me with any concerns or clarifications you may have.

If you would like to see some examples of our content, please email me at so we can begin.

Sincerely,

Erin Wallace
Outreach Manager – Article Writing Services

PS ::: "Erin" is not too quick when it comes to getting back to you, so be patient!

IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE WHO CAN TESTIFY ON BEHALF OF "ARTICLE WRITING SERVICES"???

  1. I just got this to my blog email today! And clearly it seemed sketchy so I googled it. I can't find anything other than this message posted on peoples blogs under the comments section.

  3. They contacted me because they saw that I had "writer's block" in one of my blog posts. What Erin failed to do was actually read that blog post, because if she did, she would have realized that one of my characters in my comic strip had writer's block... not me.

    But even beyond that, I used to work in marketing and I'm very familiar with these article writing services. They do work... to a degree. They'll raise your rankings, but it's very artificial. A "gray hat" tactic, if you will. Personally, I recommend that you stay away from them and just create more of your own content. Study up on some SEO if you want, but don't hire these fakes.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.

IMPORTANT:
