The Courtesy of a Reply
Aside from the sneak peek and follow-on messages with corrections, Q&A or eye candy, I don’t send many email messages to you and most of them are one way–informational messages from me to you.
Sometimes though, I really do need a reply. For example:
- There is a question about one/some of the blocks you have posted and whether they follow the rules or, when there’s an oops, if you plan to fix it or forget it.
- There’s a question about whether your blocks have been mailed (yet)
- You’re a winner and I need to confirm your mailing address and find out if you prefer to keep or send your own blocks.
If it’s question about your blocks and I don’t hear back from you, it’s frustrating.
If you’re a winner and I don’t hear back from you, it’s a little heart-breaking.
Right now, I’m waiting to hear from a few people, including Mariella, who joined the Block Lotto days ago, made and posted blocks and WON. In a post about the Block Lotto on her blog, she said she wasn’t sure how it all works … I hope I hear from her soon, so she doesn’t have to learn about the importance of a reply in a disappointing way.
Usually, I don’t know exactly how someone finds their way to the Block Lotto. If you happen to be connected to Mariella in some way and can reach out to her and ask that she get in touch ASAP, I’d appreciate it.
If you were hoping to win some of the Star Chain blocks, but didn’t … you may want to check back tomorrow to see what happens. If I don’t hear from Mariella before noon (on the US east coast), a replacement winner will be chosen.
