So let's say you have a blog with a specific focus and it's fairly popular in its own small way. One day you get an email from a reader who claims to have been following you for some time, and they say they've even posted a few comments. The email also contains a link to a story, which this person is near publishing and wants to dedicate to you.

Would you think they were sincere or just hoping for publicity? There's no request to post a review or a link to Amazon.

For the record, it is sincere, but also an attempt at gaining publicity.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.
