Are you possibly referring to entering into a credit spread? please explain. IF so this would be 'entering into a credit spread' and not 'selling a spread'.

Yes, I was referring to credit spreads, as opposed to selling naked. The credit spread, vertical spread, call/put spread, whatever you want to call it, is the safer, limited risk variation of selling naked options. Sorry if I wasn't specific enough.
