i received this interesting request from "sarah" asking if i had an interest in a guest blog post. isn't that interesting? here's the email:
I'm getting in touch with you because I'm interested in writing an article for your blog. I came across your blog post marcusoh.blogspot.com while writing for a website on music production. During my research, I've found an increasing focus in terms of design as the tools and technology available today improve our ability to customize how create music and collaborate as musicians
Please let me know if you'd be interested in an article this topic. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
as you know, i write tons on music, music theory, musical collaboration, and such. NOT. if sarah's "research" on the purpose/scope/focus of my blog is any indication of her research in music, i wouldn't be interested even if i did have a topic that was germane to her research. this, by far, is the best giveaway though:
smtp.com? oh boy. a short perfunctory search revealed that sarah not only dabbles in music research but also childhood psychology and development as indicated in this blog post i found.
