Hi. You emailed me. Likely more than once. So I've sent you this URL to let you know that no, you cannot pay me for placing a link in an existing article that you somehow found on my site.
It would be totally different if you wanted me to review a product, collaborate on some content, or sponsor my other projects like my photography podcast Photowalking with Colin, my online art gallery built to inspire others The Watercolor Gallery, or Unmark - a bookmarking tool. But, no, you want me to randomly throw a link in an old blog post because it ranks well on Google. And that, to me, seems icky.
Please remove me from any and all of your future lists of unsolicited emails of this nature. Unless, after reading this, you're going to change your approach and do something much more fun and authentic like the above. In that case, my rates will likely be in the few thousands of dollars to get started.
Thank you, Colin
