I'm going to take these wonderful spacebar filled minutes to explain that I made it so comments go to my email address and they each go there twice, so my inbox quickly filled up and got way overwhelming and I couldn't even look at it, so I went back to checking the comments on the site...and I know heaps of personal emails were lost in that mess.
So if you emailed me any time in the last 6 weeks or so, I am planning an excavation and new system for the blog email inbox and I hope to uncover some things that I know are missing.
I'm (probably) not just avoiding you or being a jerk, I just have no spacebar and an inbox with thousands of unread emails in it.
Don't forget my three month turn around time. This is all pretty typical behavior.
To rectify the situation, I plan on responding more in the comments (because my new system will make this easier for me), actually remembering to answer questions that people ask and being better about some of the blogger etiquette/online friend situations (baby steps though, let's not expect anything huDge.)
Like New Year's Resolutions to celebrate my first year. Things are just going to get better around here.
Edited to add: I think it is safe to say that no big improvement should be expected in any of my online relations as long as I have no spacebar, which will hopefully be taken care of soon.
