Anybody getting Wellsphere rush?

Greetings. My first post here (not counting comments). I have received over the last month or two several messages from one Dr. Geoffrey Rutledge to be a "featured blogger" on the Wellsphere site. It's a request to use my content with my compensation being the exposure I'd get to Wellsphere's vast audience. Have any of you taken him on on this offer? Does it come across to you as simply a way to give my content to him or indeed a great way to expand my audience? I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Personally I would never agree to an agreement like this where you give away the right to use your content. You're not going to get much exposure from a site like that especially if they are brand new.

I've had these requests, too, and just ignored them, for the reasons Kalyn has outlined.

For request like those I look at their site and also check their ranking on

The site actually has tons of traffic (I had looked at Alexa), although I found it somewhat incoherent. The operators are on top of things, though; I think I got a response via email from the founder about the same time I got my first response here!
