Unsolicited mail

Those of you who have too much time on their hands might have noticed a redesigned Contact Page on CabbieBlog, which now has a contact form, replacing an email address that, in an unguarded moment, I had foolishly given out for those who – well – wanted to contact me.

Plenty of tech-savvy people, upon discovering that email address, were then encouraged to inform me that my site was in need of improvement, which was very kind of them.

Olivia told me she was:

…always looking for good quality websites and when I found your website today, I was really intrigued by the content. I know you’re very busy [I’m not, having retired], so the point is I’m reaching out to you about an awesome partnership that I think would really benefit your audience. Do you accept guest posts? I actually write about some of the topics that are covered in your blog and would like to contribute to your site.

If Olivia had spent time looking at my ‘quality’ website she would have found the page helpfully titled ‘Write a Post’.

Lorna admired the look of CabbieBlog and was gushing in her praise:

I was examining your website and see you have a good design and it looks great. But it was not ranking on Google and other major search engine.

While Swadesh begged to differ with this critique:

Would you be interested in a possible Design/redesigning of the websites or designing new website, with addition feature that might benefit the overall usability and user experience which usually leads to better sales.

I’m always being asked for advice about The Knowledge but I couldn’t help this contact who shall remain anonymous:

Hello I just came across your blog, and I am interested in doing the knowledge, my problem is if I am going somewhere, like yesterday I get anxious if I do not know my way. I went to Tatershall Castle, I checked beforehand and it said 4 minutes from Embankment station, I took the wrong turning, I had to ask several people including Cabbies, to get there, it is always the same I am going somewhere new even when people, give me precise direction I still find it difficult, do you recommend the knowledge?

My advice would be try looking in that river outside Embankment Station as the Tattershall Castle is a rather large ship.

Following the deluge of unsolicited email I was reminded:

As Stress Awareness Month approaches, the latest statistics once again demonstrate how important it is for employers to familiarise themselves with the signs and symptoms of stress, especially as an increase in the cost of living threatens to compound the issues faced by many.

Maybe just maybe if I received less bumph I wouldn’t be as stressed.
