I smell an automated blog spammer

Had a couple of emails (actually, I probably have more, when I go through my inbox) with regards to guest posters. Compare the two, and see if you can figure out why I'm deleting both emails unanswered ...

Hello There,

My name is Dorothy and I'm a professional blogger.

I have over three years of experience writing for the web and have covered plenty of topics about Legal Industry.

I noticed that you have a blog and was wondering if you would be interested in allow me to write relevant, useful topics about Legal on your blog at no cost.

At this point in my writing career, I simply want to get more visibility for your writing and I will write for free as long as you are okay with me adding a small author bio section next to each blog post about myself.

Please let me know if you're interested and if you'd like for me to submit a sample blog post for your approval.

Thanks a bunch,

Remembering 2012

Shouldn't this post have been made at the very latest some time in early January? Perhaps. But I like to mull things over. How was 2012 for you? For me, it was the year we didn't have an apocalypse. The Mayans were wrong! Or, rather, the Mayan Calendar just started anew, nothing to write home about. The year itself was quite interesting, though. Had BFF come over, saw the Harry Potter film set, went to an IRL gathering, got coupla moar kittehs, worked ... and drove in foreign countries. :)
