I sometimes get asked questions and some of them are asked frequently so hopefully this will save you some time if your question is here.
I want to guest write for you, how do I do that?
I’m always happy to help out aspiring writers and will hopefully start running a guest spot regularly so just drop me an email [daniel (at) northlondonisred.co.uk] and we’ll have a chat about it.
Will you feature my blog on your blogroll?
That depends. I add blogs to my blogroll because I enjoy reading them and I think that my readers may enjoy them too. If you would like me to add you to my blogroll send me a link to your stuff and once I’ve read through it I can decide if I want to become a regular reader. If I do then I’ll add you to my blogroll.
Do I have to add you to my blogroll to be on yours?
No. I add blogs on merit not to return the favour or to gain favour. If you feature me on your blog then I appreciate that and will be glad that you like my stuff. If I don’t return the favour it may not be because I don’t like your blog, it may just be that it doesn’t stand out and whilst that isn’t a bad thing I tend to follow blogs because they have a unique style.
Will you follow me back on Twitter?
If you ask nicely :-). I don’t always automatically follow back as I usually have a quite a few conversations going on Twitter so sometimes forget to follow back. I should make you aware that I will unfollow you if your tweets are offensive or discriminatory. I will also unfollow if you are one of those crazy people who tweet incessantly all day and clog up my timeline. I tweet a lot but not 200+ a day. Oh, yeah… I’ll also unfollow if you are boring. Sorry but that’s the point of Twitter right? To follow those you find interesting. If you’ve been unfollowed by me and want to take your revenge by unfollowing me then feel free to do so but as we all know Twitter can be temperamental sometimes I suggest dropping me a line to see if you’ve been accidentally unfollowed (it happens) before you do anything drastic. I’m not the forgiving type
Will you RT something for me?
That depends. I think retweets are personal things, like the “like” function on Facebook. If I like it I will RT it. You can ask me to RT something and if I like it I will.
I write too, will you help me gain followers on Twitter or spread the word about my blog?
Yes. I think writing is a fantastic thing so if you are passionate about writing enough to start up a blog I will happily help you spread the word about it.
Would you bet on Arsenal to win the League?
As rival supporters like to remind us, Arsenal were until recently bereft of silverware for a long time. So over the past few years I would have said yes based purely on romantic expectation and affiliation rather than common sense. Nowadays, with the emergence of Aaron Ramsey as a world class player, Wenger splashing the cash and Europe’s cream being only too happy to play for us, I would definitely place a bet on the Gunners winning the title. Betting site Betway.com have not had odds this good to win the league for a good while now, but if not this season then certainly in the coming seasons it can happen. At the least, winning the title is more likely than getting Wilshere to quit smoking!
I really enjoy your blog and your tweets are awesome. I want to do whatever I can to help you gain more followers. How can I help?
I never get asked that. Well not in those exact words. But if you were feeling generous you could give my blog a shout out on Twitter and any other social network you frequent and tell all of your Twitter followers to follow me too!
