Hmmm, interesting.
This is obviously an approach the ES are using - I personally know two other London bloggers who have received similar requests connected to things they've blogged about (although neither of them bit).

Why pay someone when a blogger will do it for free? Cunning.


Very nicely handled Gert (although I'd argue your self-description as 'washed-up'). It seems that very few working in traditional media "get" the whole concept of blogging.

I had a similar-ish email a while back from a US publication but didn't take it any further (I'm still waiting for Fox News to contact me for a soundbite on Bill O'Reilly...;-) )

Oh and I had a lovely email correspondence with a researcher from the Discovery channel who had been trawling the internet looking for the name and contact details of the Hungarian sand artist Ferenc, she was chuffed to bits when I was able to point her at his page, his manager's name, address & phone number.
