I read, I rate and I comment on Open Salon. I don't write as often as I think about writing. But I love it here, and many of you know that. I must also say: I don't check my inbox here as often as I should.
I did tonight, and I found a painful number of messages from people I care about -- some of whom I thought had my direct email -- messaging me with something important. And I found thoughtful messages from new members I wish I had seen sooner.
I have to be honest: I am drowning in email at work, I'm on Twitter and Facebook and Gmail as well as Salon, and of course I'm here too. I fall behind on everything.
But if you ever need to reach me quickly, I'm at jwalsh at salon dot com.
The truth is, I can't check out every Open post anyone wants to send me, and I would honestly appreciate it if people didn't use my Salon email that way. But if you really want to contact me about anything important -- about Open Salon or Salon or life in all its complexity! -- please feel free to use that email.
I will continue to check my Open inbox every week or so, but I'm getting alarmed at how many important messages are getting lost. If I haven't gotten back to you, I apologize. And if you have thoughts about better ways for me to communicate with you all, let me know in comments.
