Subject: can i buy an ad on your teacher julie site?
Your list of “you might be in Education” is really funny…and true. I like #14
Say, I was wondering if I can place an ad on this page http://teacherjulie.com/2006/08/05/you-might-be-in-education/
for someone who runs an online learning site?
I don’t have much, but I can pay $___ for an ad there. If this works for you let me know and I’ll send you over the ad and the payment.
This was the reply I made:

can i buy an ad on your teacher julie site?
Thank you for the interest in putting an ad in that particular page. I am skeptic though because you see, the post I made was not my own since the source can be found below it, www.teachingheart.net. I think that that would not be fair to the site where I got the article.
I am sorry I think I have to refuse your offer, even if it sounds so tempting because your $____ is a lot of money where I am.
I hope you understand.
P.S. #14 is funny, yes, I am a teacher but I do homeschooling.
To which the man replied again:
Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Great News – I took another look at your site and found 6 pages that I’d like to get ads on. I can offer you $_____ for advertising on these 6 pages.
Here are the 6 pages I’d like to get ads on:
On this page http://homeschooling.teacherjulie.com/2008/02/01/science-centrum-field-trip/, here’s the ad that I’d like:
Please avoid using the words “ADS” or “SPONSOR” as this actually decreases clicks.
If this works for you I’ll send you over the other 5 ads for the other pages. Once they’re live, I will pay you through PAYPAL or a CHECK (whichever you’d prefer).
Thank you for your time,
I don’t know but I didn’t reply back.
Then in a group mail subscription that I am a part of, JMom included a link that made me think about this harder.
Were those offers I got were from underground text link server?
