    Hello,

    The name is Alyssa Jacobs, I’m a professional writer and webmaster; a pleasure to e-meet you! I’ve been reading your blog lately at the office and I’m loving it so far, plus I was quite impressed with the design of your site; it’s so nicely customized that it just stands out.

    I’m contacting you because I have a few ideas for an article that, in my opinion, would be very fitting for your readers.

    The format of the article would be as follows:

    Length: >= 400-600 words.

    Delivery: Formatted HTML file with pictures and relevant supplementary resources, ready for publishing.

    Copyrights: 100% original and not published anywhere else; the article will be for the exclusive use of your blog.

    Would it be fine if the article body contained one, entirely relevant link to my website, which would add even more value to the article?

    I really love to write, so I’m absolutely ready to prepare the article for you and send it for your approval within the next few days; I’m sure you will like it and we’ll get it to work, but should you decide not to publish I will just stash it in my private collection for later use – no harm done!

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

    Kind regards,
    Alyssa
