When spam texts are encouraging

Spam text has to be one of most annoying forms of online communication. It feels like an invasion of privacy. HOW DID YOU GET MY NUMBER?!

But today I got a spam message that was rather nice.

Matt, your concepts are worth publishing.

Well, if you have to receive spam text, it might as well be encouraging.

I didn’t click on this link (I blurred it out here), but I did find encouragement in this message. Yes! My concepts ARE worth publishing. THANK YOU!

So, uh… Thank you, spammer?

Maybe I need to reach out to my friends who are authors, and give them a little note of encouragement like this. If I found encouragement in a spam message, how much more meaning would a message have if it came from a real person?

Enjoyed this blog post?
