Since I have gotten this more than once, I will complain.
Just because I write blog posts and articles, does NOT mean I am going to host those articles or posts on my own personal website. Nowhere in any of my gig descriptions do I even hint that I offer a service to post anyone’s blog post on MY blog or website, or that I will write the article and host it on my site.
This is why anyone who wants to work with a seller should read the description, or at least ask a question before placing the order. That way you will not be let down when I don’t offer that service.
In fact, I don’t know of any writer who does offer that service, as why would you want your post placed next to 500 other posts on a website that will eventually look like spam? Or The Huffington Post. Same thing. A blog with a weird mismatch of articles get very few views and does their message no good at all. You have better luck asking one of the people on the forum to send the link to their 4 million emails they have a list of.
Thankfully, out of 215 orders, this has only happened twice.
I don’t get why they would even think that posting a random blog on someone’s random website is even a good idea. This guy even wanted me to make a brand new blog and just post it on there. Might as well just print it on paper and staple it to a tree in the forest, they’d get more viewers that way.
