a new type of spam?

Here is an email I received on Monday and which left me quite puzzled:

I found the information on your blog about reviewer’s credits insightful as I was scouring the web for research on historical topics that are relevant to issues in nursing today. Through my research, I’ve found that there has been a trend towards taking on greater responsibilities and autonomy within the nursing community. A growing number of nurses today hold graduate and doctorate degrees, requiring more education in areas such as biochemistry.

I’d love to write a post for you that perhaps blends this topic with something deeper you are interested in for your blog. What do you think? Thanks, and I really look forward to hearing froam you.

I frankly see no connection between this post on reviewer’s credits and nursing… On the other hand, I do not see why anyone would want to publish a post on nursing on my blog…and what they would gain from it!

  1. Thanks for posting this.
    Got the same e-mail about two weeks ago and now this follow-up:

    “I wanted to check in because I haven’t heard from you since my last email about a working on a blog post for you. Please let me know if you’re still interested.”

    Strange indeed.

  2. The Internet is a strange place…
