Maybe you're angry about the deception. Maybe this anger drives you to write about the scams... I think you just want to make the world a better place!


"What if the dream came true?" - I think there is no better calling than the rise up in defence, in calling out and shaming those who prey upon the defenceless, the fearful and the hurting. They are no different than the sellers of plague remedies and Yellow Fever remedies, and historically despised but never held accountable (odd how people can deal with being despised if they have taken a load of money from someone vulnerable). You hold them up and accountable. 'What if the dream came true?'

My name is David Keating and I am a student at the University of Arizona. I am working with Dr. Steve Rains, who is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication. We are conducting a study about blogging and health and would greatly appreciate it if you would complete our survey. We found your blog by conducting a general search for blogs about health. We would like to know more about your experience blogging.

Our survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. To participate, you must be (a) 18 years of age or older and (b) have made a blog entry in the past 30 days.

If you meet these requirements and would like to participate, please click the link below. The study will be conducted online and the link will take you to the first webpage of the survey.

[Note: You may copy and paste the address directly into your web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer) to access the study.]

Thanks for your consideration!
