So, What Do You Think?

For real — I am seeking your input

I’d love to hear from you

Just like all bloggers, writers, and podcasters want to hear from their readers or listeners, I’m thrilled when I get a comment. Because I know this, I try to make sure I leave comments or otherwise reach out to the online creators whom I follow.

But honestly, sometimes it’s a pain to scroll down and leave a comment on a blog post or DM someone on Twitter, or do whatever it is one does on TikFace, etc.

And because I’m writing on multiple platforms and also releasing my weekly show, Here’s A Thought — the blog cast for people who overthink — it strikes me that there might be an easy default for anyone who wants to get in touch with me to do just that:

You can just email me!

I mean, just old-fashioned, old-school email. Yes, if you subscribe to my email list here or on my website, you’ll be officially on my, well, email list — which means you’ll hear from me every time I release another post or article.

But maybe you don’t want that. Maybe you just want to send me a quick note or a correction or a virtual hug (or a virtual raspberry: I can take it, but don’t be mean). Look at me, not trying to capture your data — refreshing, right?

And if you do listen to my Here’s A Thought episodes (they’re not long; think of them as fun-size), I’d be over the moon if you’d give me a suggestion as to what you’d like me to overthink in an upcoming episode!

So, here is my brand-new, dedicated email address:

See? Easy.

I’m looking to take the show in a new direction

I still want to keep the episodes short, simple, and sweet (okay, maybe semisweet, like good chocolate). But I’m thinking it might be awfully fun to respond to listeners’ questions or comments and build episodes around that, at least from time to time.
