Monday

'No Reply' Email; No Contact Info

My pet peeves:

1. Getting an email with a no-reply address. If you want to send me an email please allow me to respond! Why would you send an email to tell someone you were featuring them on your blog and then not allow them to respond to you, right there and then.

I go to their blog and yes I can leave feedback, but would rather email them. So...

2. I can not find an email or contact link on your blog! A lot of blogs take a very long time to load, then you scan allll the wayyyyy down the page and no where is there a contact link or email link! Then...

3. I can not find where you are located, city or state or country! Especially on Etsy and blogs. I prefer to buy in the US, I prefer to run ads on blogs that are in the US since I do not want to ship Internationally (said I didn't like to but I will if it is requested).

I use Entrecard and it gets very time consuming having to read and scan everything on a blog page then find no location. Sometimes if you have the time to read all the posts you can stumble across a city, state or country they happen to mention, which may or may not be the one they live in! You can even click on the E at the corner and it takes you to their profile page on Entrecard but alas no info there either!

I love to shop on Etsy but if I can not see from a glance where they are located then I will not buy from that shop. For goodness sake, aren't you trying to sell something? Why would you mind if someone knows ahead of time where the heck you live?

It is Monday December first and I got that off my chest! Here's to a very prosperous selling month for all! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, etc, etc, etc,

yeah sometimes people are not computer savvy enough to know how much those things are important.

I don't have contact information on my blog - but I do have my Etsy shop listed and you can find my contact info on my profile on my blog. Or at least I think you can. :) Time to go check. :)
