As a blogger, I talk to other bloggers. I don’t know a ton of bloggers outside the internet, so it is mostly via internet interactions. I did have an interesting conversation the other day that got me thinking.
This particular blogger said I had a unique writing style and other companies might like it, and pick me up to write for them. He told me he made a lot of money because of the speed he could churn out blog posts.
To be honest, it didn’t seem like my cup of tea, but I listened. He told me they give you a subject and you write about it… very simple.
He wrote an article about a subject, that wasn’t true. It wasn’t true at all. The subject was something about taking a supplement for hair growth. He knew it, and was just chasing a buck.
Then I got to thinking about amazon.com
“I received this product for free for my honest review”
I have seen it on all types of products, not just health products.
Health Advice You Can Take
Only take health advice from someone that has lived it.
I was fat and I lost weight. Will my methodology work for you? Possibly not, because you are not me. I do know it did work for me though.
The worst part of the whole conversation.
The site he wrote for was HUGE! It was one of the largest health and fitness websites at one point in time. Yet the advice wasn’t honest, and people flock to it.
Honest advice is always advice you don’t want to hear. When I say I worked my butt off to lose the weight, I literally did. It wasn’t easy.
If everything was as simple as popping a pill or taking the next big supplement everyone would do it. It isn’t, quit taking advice from someone that doesn’t have your best interest in mind.
Beware of click-bait
Click-bait is a website that it’s literal intent is to make you click on it. Then it is designed for you to click the next article. I will admit, I would love it if you clicked on DrewTolbert (d0t) Com and you read every article every single day. My site, however, is not designed to keep you on it forever.
You most likely found my site from a search engine. Because I write content to be informational, and you leave. Only to find my site later, and then say you know what… I think I will just read every article because this is good advice.
Thanks for reading
