Let’s Talk About It

Hey friends!

So, today is supposed to be a little recap/discussion about shows I have watched through the week. Sadly, I didn’t take notes on shows this week. And there were a lot of shows that were on hiatus this week, so I just didn’t bother.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to blog about today and I had this idea. A new segment that I can add to my blog for when I have something to say or discuss. I’m going to call it “Let’s Talk About It.” It will still be related to reading and writing and all that fun stuff. But it will just be a little rant that I have.

I’m not going to put some lame disclaimer on here about how these are my opinions…obviously you know that already and I don’t care if you disagree with me, just be respectful with your disagreement. There is no room for childish behavior. πŸ™‚

Now, I have to e-mail a few people about things that concern my blog. As you know, I have author interviews, and of course I am in contact with the authors for that. And a few other people.

I always thought that e-mail was this thing that people checked everyday and responded to as quickly as possible. Usually when you are working with someone that is how it goes. You wait for their e-mail and respond as quickly as you can. But it seems, within my experience with a few people, some people just don’t answer e-mails as quickly.

I don’t like to pester people or continue to bug them. I like to send out what I need to send out and patiently wait for a response, but when I am on a deadline myself, it’s really hard to be patient.

Now, I understand that people are busy. People have full time jobs, families, and other things they do on a daily basis. But when you know someone is waiting on you to respond to something, shouldn’t that take a bit of priority?

I usually check my e-mail everyday. Usually, several times a day. I even have it linked to my phone and my phone will alert me when an important e-mail comes through. If I am at work, I usually take the first moment I can to read the e-mail and respond as quickly as I can. I thought everyone did that, but I am finding that I was completely wrong.

It’s actually a little irritating, but I am a Leo and I hate to be ignored, which is what it feels like when people don’t respond to my e-mails. Am I silly for being this way?

What are your thoughts on replying to e-mails and waiting for a response?

    My email is linked to my phone too πŸ™‚
    I edit/beta read for fanfiction, Indie authors, and one or two mainstream authors (all for free) so email response time can be critical, especially with published authors! I try to respond as soon as I see it but always I try to respond within 24 hours, even on weekends. I like the same courtesy in return. Do I always get it? Nope. But I do try to give them a week or so before I send a follow up if a response was required.
    Which reminds me, lol. I pre-read something earlier in the week and I need to send any corrections I saw.
