All of the comments on my last email were positive, well almost all. I only got one comment from someone who said she wanted to be taken off the list. She sent the following email:
“Hi- I think I’ll need to be one of the ones to sign off – I just haven’t had the time and I find the page confusing usually.
Many thanks though, V.”
Now hopefully she is no longer looking at the blog but one of the nice things about blogging is you can say what you want and you can also filter out comments you don’t want to post. Someone once said “Modesty doesnt run in my family it gallops.”
It occurred to me that 1) she assumes there are others who are dropping like flies 2) She says she doesnt have time and yet she looks at the blog and 3) Anyone who finds my blog confusing would probably have trouble with the New York phone book.
So I think all my readers out there are sufficiently intimidated that they would rather receive the emails than risk my rapier edged comments. In truth I didn’t even remember that this person was on my list as she was a person who did transcribing for me a few years ago on a book that is still in progress. My best guess is that it will be published posthumously.
So now do nothing to alarm the women and children and return to the blog immediately.
