I was wondering if you would be interested in writing one or more short articles for my blog "My Dental Complaint" I have on dental health (http://discountdental4u.blogspot.com).

I wouldn't ask for long, elaborate articles, just 100-300 words about a topic that deals with dental health. My blog would benefit immensely from some "original content" and in the exchange I would help publicize your blog as much as I could.

If rather than writing an article you would prefer to leave a comment about one of my articles I would welcome that as well. I would love to know what you think of my current week's subject title "Good News For Junk-Food Junkies".

Yours on the 'Net,
