There was a members only post today that discussed agents who use someone else to write and submit blog posts for them. The attitude of this writer was not favorable for this method of blogging and suggested that the owner of the blog do his/her own work.
Everyone should not blog. It’s as simply said as that. There are people who do not have a very good mastery of the English language; there are agents who are totally intimidated by the thought of having to write a post; and there are agents who just don’t have any time.
I’m sure there are many other reasons that people use ghost writers to prepare and post blogs. If an agent can afford to hire a ghost writer, that’s a wonderful option. Everyone needs an online presence and if one pays to have that accomplished it should be a top quality narrative. That writer must have a thorough knowledge of SEO and the agent who is paying that fee will soar.
I think it’s acceptable. It’s actually not a good idea to write if you are not a writer. Your writing is a reflection of you. It openly states whether or not you were a good student; it reflects your creativity; and it’s available to be read by the world so you can be judged. If any of those qualities are not up to par, hire a writer, or use the services of a writer to "rewrite your narrative." Your thoughts with a creative touch can result in many future phone calls. It’s America. Hiring a ghost writer is spreading the wealth. It’s providing a job for someone. Why not!!!
