I love it when an email arrives and suggests a blog post that almost writes itself. Here’s a case in point.

A couple of days ago, around 4 a.m., an email arrived that caught my attention—because, you know, it was 4 a.m. And the subject line was CLOSING!

The email was from Cristian Mihai at Irevuo. Here’s the original text:

In 72 hours, I’m closing your chance to join The Basics of Blogging for Indie Writers for only $99. I don’t want you to miss out.

That’s why I created this course for you. But I only want serious people, who want my help. I want to help people truly get results and grow. So, is that you?

Just remember: in 72 hours the price goes up. If you don’t signup by then, you will have to pay twice as much to enroll.

Last thought – if you didn’t know, my course has a 14-day money-back guarantee.

 Your Name

As a writer, Cristian’s email pushed my buttons in all the wrong ways. So—to assuage my displeasure— I graded it and sent it back to him.

I’ve not received a response and I probably over reacted, but I do feel ever so much better. Because words matter.
