My inbox: positive and negative

emailMy inbox is getting ever busier as a result of this site, and these emails tend to fall into one of these categories:

  • a personal email from an individual asking for help or advice. I love to get these, and always do my best to answer them. I do need to point out, though, that I’m not medically trained – just another mother trying to do her best by her child. Keep them coming, and I’ll try to help!
  • a personal email from a company asking for a little bit of publicity. I like these too, and often pass them on to you. I think it is amazing how many people are doing their best to improve things for others who need to be free from gluten. If I think the product or service or whatever it is might be of interest to you – I’ll blog about it.
  • a generic email asking for publicity. These are less fun to receive, because they’re not necessarily relevant to me, and are clearly a mass email. I can see that this is easier for the person sending the email, but it isn’t likely to get them the publicity they want. Still, I might pass it on if it is particularly interesting.
  • hate mail. Yes, even this little blog which serves a niche audience of people just trying to stay healthy gets hate mail every so often. What is it with people that they can’t accept that some people are made unwell by gluten? I don’t like getting these. I’m not going to give them any publicity, or react in any way. In fact, I think this is the first time I’ve mentioned it here; I’ll try and make it the last.

So: please feel free to contact me, especially if you’re a real person and not a mailing list, and I’ll respond as soon as I can. Except if you hate me.
