One thing about my blog that is disappointing for me and exciting at the same time is email. I occasionally receive an email from a reader who is pretty upset because I didn't answer their earlier email. I know I disappoint some people because they get overlooked. The reason is simple. One person can not possibly read and respond to all the email I receive. It's in the hundreds a week. The good side of this is that it means the blog is popular. The bad side is I really want to help everyone who has questions.
For the most part I do read or at least scan every email. The hard part is responding. To respond in any meaningful way takes several minutes at least. I could easily spend two or more hours a day on email. Unfortunately I only have a couple hours a day total to design the daily patterns and maintain the blog. If you have followed the blog for long you know I have trouble with my writing skills. That makes writing email painfully slow for me.
I like receiving lots of email because it keeps me informed on what is working well and what needs improvement. Please keep the email coming just understand you may not get a response. I wish that were not the case but just keeping it honest.
