Email Karma

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!


  1. I'm one of those people who will completely FORGET to email you back unless I do it right away. :) So I'm trying to do a better job.

    Love your website! I'm one of your Cozy Promo group friends.

  2. I recognized you, Elizabeth! And I think I'm just a smidgen away from not emailing back! I'm working on getting back to people right away, trying to break the habit. It's not easy, is it?

  3. I'm one of those person who you'll probably dislike because I will respond to emails within 24 hours. I just don't like all that email cluttering in my inbox nor in my outbox. I'm also a deleter and will delete emails as soon as I've read and replied back.

    Have a good day.

  4. No dislike at all, Dru! Envy! LOL. And I'm working on using the delete key more often!

  5. some people I respond to immediately, others not so quickly. now I'm realizing why you never wrote back (just kidding!).
