The word Paid Media is infamous in India. Content Writing and Story Telling are booming businesses here. Some good writers are found gullible and caught in the catchments of Blogs and Social media with Ssssshhhh…. kind of messages asking for writing paid reviews.
I have written few reviews for TripAdvisor for few years and they are less than 150 over 10 years or so and have got about 100000 views from readers. Some of them have actually liked them. So when the below mail came to me I was first surprised, so I re-read and understood. I am sharing this for fellow Bloggers and writers – it is a wake up call.
You may draw your own conclusions and take precautions if you like.
