This is a really really really good Ask. Thank you, because I want to address this same concern for anyone who has ever messaged me and felt slighted.
I like messages – it is part of what makes Tumblr so much better that some other form of expression. As the blog grows my time is spread more thin – but you should know this – You, whoever you are – were and not a hindrance. At all.
I love my followers and readers.
I want to know my followers as virtual anonymous acquaintances from afar, so just please be patient and remember I get at times 100 new followers per day, so it just gets hard to keep up and not appear curt or rude.
Somebody will send me 3 long paragraphs and I will respond with one or two sentences and I feel like a dick every single time. I genuinely hate it. I wish I could give more but I just can’t; I don’t think this ever will sit well with me. I hope not. I hope that I will always bother me.
Keep on messaging me and I’ll respond the best I can.
