There may be a valid reason why youâ€™d want to reach out to me other than by leaving a comment on a specific post, and Iâ€™m happy to offer you a comment form that makes doing that easy.
Iâ€™m happy to read your suggestions for improvements or even post ideas.
But before you fill out the form, let me try to save you a little time:
I am not accepting solicitations from writers looking to have a guest post published at this time.
This blog is a little different than most, especially because it has my name in the title. The rare times Iâ€™ve actually posted a guest post â€” which is something like twice in eight years â€” have been because I sought them out from people who I wanted my readers to hear from.
I am not accepting solicitations from companies wanting me to publish their infographics or links to their resources.
I don’t publish such content unless I find it in researching my own posts, and then it’s out of courtesy, not through some â€œbusiness relationship.â€
I do not accept solicitations from businesses that promise to boost my web traffic or marketing.
When I work with businesses that offer that type of services, I seek them out and prefer working with people I can meet face to face, not through email only.
I do not do link advertising or paid posts.
At some point, advertising may be an option. At the moment, it isnâ€™t, at least not in the form that most people whoâ€™d use the contact form would want.
If you contact me about any of these issues, you should know that Iâ€™ll consider your message to be spam.
I reserve the right to publish excerpts of emails on the blog where appropriate. If you request it, I will keep your comments anonymous where possible.
