I’ve added a contact page which spells out my stance on emails, comments, advertising and blog content. It may sound wanky to have an official policy on these things, but it’s got to the point where I need to explain how things work so people don’t think I am being obnoxious.
I love getting emails from readers, but I’ve been getting behind on replies as I’m spending far too much time sifting through all the non-reader emails. Like folk asking me to review their weirdo diet products or to casually mention their book or to run adverts for their miracle fat vanish creme.
I like to keep this site completely non-commercial. While I appreciate the PR folk are just doing their jobs, I’d prefer to spend my time replying to emails from readers. I’m catching up but apologies if you’ve written recently and I’ve not replied yet.
And now here’s the book meme that Sandra tagged me for last week!
1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions
5. Tag 5 people
Paul Bradley’s tootbrush stood at ease in a glass next to the taps. It was old, the bristles worn and splayed, proof of a life that preceded their strange encounter. Martin always found something poignant in the sight of a singular toothbrush.
