Are you one of those people who answer an email immediately?
I confess: I'm not.
I try, but it's that procrastination gene. I think "I'll reply as soon as I read the news" or "after I check TMZ" or "read all the blogs I follow". Before I know it, it's been hours sometimes days. BUT...I always do get back to it.
Well, I think I had a little bit of email karma going on last month. Unbeknownst to me, my contact form on my website wasn't working. For a whole month. Finally, the other day, I realized I hadn't received an email in a while, and though I'm neurotic enough to believe I'm just not that popular (sniff!) in the back of my head I knew something wasn't quite right.
Turns out my form hadn't been working since updates in early July.
Revenge of the email, maybe?
I'm thinking so.
The good news is that everything is now working again. The bad news is if anyone sent me a note during the last month, I didn't get it and it's lost in cyberspace forever. Honestly, I'm not ignoring, procrastinating, or avoiding at all. In fact, I'm kind of mortified that someone might think so. So...if you've sent me something, please resend. And if not, well, I do love email. And I promise to answer in a timely fashion!
