I believe that the best way to learn something is via experiments. I’m all for scientific analysis. I’m for control groups and test settings. I’ve always wanted to do a really cool experiment with my blog. The experiment i want to set up requires some cash, so i’ll hold off until i make a few more bucks with this blog. What i want to do is send johnchow, shoemoney, and problogger an email. In the email, i will ask for a review of my blog. This will require over a thousand dollars so i probably will have to wait a year to do this. I know it’s a waste of money but hear me out. In the said email, i will write the following,
“Dear john, shoe, or pro, i’m a new make money blogger and i wanted to request a review of my blog. I’m not a fan of your blog, nor do i think it’s worth the money i plan on spending to advertise on your blog, but i would like to pay for a post on your crappy blog. I think you scam people of their hard earned money. I am willing to pay $450 for you to write a post about how shitty your blog is. I want you to write the post or the deal is off. I don’t want one of your guest bloggers to write this post. Give me your paypal email and i will send you the payment ASAP.”
I’ve kinda insulted them. I want to know how many of them would write the review. I personally don’t think they will take the bait, but who knows. What do you guys think?
On a side note, the rookie blogger is back. He has a recent post where he is conduction a similar experiment with A-list bloggers. He wrote them emails to see how many of them would offer assistance. You should check out the comments posted if you want to see some blogging drama. Very cool idea for a post and very entertaining comments.
