When Spambots Attack

(Editor's Note: Laura has a blog that discusses her journey in becoming a published author that you can check out here. Her husband also plays Todd in our web series - Roommates.)

As a blogger, a fan base is important. As a writer looking to be published, that fan base is doubly important! Publishers are going to be so impressed when they see that I not only have a decent human following, I have a massive spambot following. Here are some comments from a few of my loyal spambot fans:

Hi {That is a valid point! This is an interesting post!} {Can you post more?! Can you post more about federal student loans?!} Thanks

  • Thanks, {you are a magnificent spambot!}. I have never once posted about federal student loans. But I will think about it because you love me so much.
