Why Can’t I Find Your Email Addy?

I do not understand why so many writers have websites and/or blogs, but do not have their email address or a “contact me” link easily visible.
It’s a frequent source of frustration for me. Why would you even bother putting yourself out there without giving people a way to contact you?
There are two circumstances in which I come up against this:
(1) I’m following links to various websites/blogs, find something I like and become interested in talking to the writer about whether they’d ever like to be published, whether they have an agent, etc… and there’s no email address. I’m supposed to leave a comment on your blog? Not exactly professional.
(2) I want to respond privately to a comment someone has left on my blog, rather than put it out there for all the world to see. I’m interested in engaging in conversation. Yet when I follow the link to their blog or website, again, no way to contact them.

Listen, there’s a lot of dialogue going on out here on the web, and real connections are being made. If you don’t include a way for people to contact you directly, it says you’re not interested in making connections. Maybe you’re just interested in being heard but not interested in hearing from others. It doesn’t look good.
You’re here to network, to learn, to communicate, and to create relationships. It’s not just about putting your blog or website up and commenting on others’ blogs. Let people know how to reach you, too. Just in case.
And by the way, the excuse that you want to avoid spambots getting your email address is so five years ago. You can encrypt or obscure your email address so that people can see it but spambots can’t. If you want, you can also create a separate gmail or yahoo address for public use. It’s free and takes 30 seconds.
So, if you have a website or blog, and if you’re leaving comments on others’ blogs, make sure you have your email address or “contact me” plainly visible.
Q4U: If you’re one of those without contact info on your site – why not? Are you going to add it today?

    Evеn fοr pеople who don’t change their hair color, these lenses give them a chance to have beautiful eyes. The hair may look great, but the eye color is uninspiring. Now, the eyes can enhance the whole appearance. . People have worn eyeglasses for centuries to correct their vision or help them to see clearly, but one inconvenience is that they need to take extra care of the pair as it is easy to break. And the invention of contact lens helps people a lot in this. Contact lens covers the cornea of the eye and fits into the curvature of cornea, so that the probability of breakage and irritation is reduced. . Non prescription color contacts are perfectly safe to wear if you do it the right way. Just remember to take these precautions. To some eyes contacts of any kind do cause irritation. Sometimes it just takes time to get use to them. You can get your contacts in a variety of colors and they even have ones with crazy effects for Halloween and costuming. .

    I actually wanted to write a simple comment to thank you for the great steps you are giving at this site.
    My rather long internet investigation has finally been compensated with excellent know-how to exchange with my
    close friends. I would admit that most of us site visitors actually are very
    lucky to exist in a remarkable network with many lovely people with interesting suggestions.
    I feel extremely grateful to have used the website and
    look forward to plenty of more exciting minutes reading

    I think that everything said was actually very reasonable. However, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier title? I am not saying your content isn’t good, however suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean Why Can’t I Find Your Email Addy? | Rachelle Gardner is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    i phone “jailbreaking” has become a warm topic given that The apple company launched it’s smartphone more than a couple of years ago. As the incredible tiny system genuinely does possess programs regarding “just concerning every little thing,Inch Apple’s occasionally arbitrary or perhaps self-serving denials of apps such as Search engines Words has switched lots more people to the idea of freeing on their own coming from reliance upon Apple company for these assets (and in addition, in some instances, coming from AT&T for any community transmission).

    This the parameter to find what is a fake site and which is not. Google is now strict about the business submission. If site have proper telephone number and contacts then it is not fake. Most ticketing sites are fake and created by users when a brand announce its concert. I had experience it a lot. Second risk are from the eCommerce sites. Be aware of the contacts of a site before making a purchase through it.
    See this:
    There is all information you need on a contact page.

    >Blogging is a very personal endeavor for some. I favor anonymity, much like a philanthropist who doesn't wish to reveal his/her identity when they donate large sums of money.

    I've also taken the added step of disabling comments, but that has more to do with my personal situation than a desire not to connect.

    And I suppose it could be said that I'm mostly a lurker when I read other blogs, whether they are writers or publishers. So I guess I'm like a blurker with blogger.

    Having said that, this post definitely makes for some thought-provoking analysis, because I do think it's important for writers and authors to put their contact info on a website if they have one. Unless they have extremely personal reasons not to do so. (Which some do, and that needs to be respected by their readers. On the other hand, it behooves the writers to be upfront about it.)

    But I certainly appreciate agents like Ms. Gardner who not only have the sincere desire to connect and communicate with people in general, and writers in particular, but are willing to take time out of their very busy lives to educate writers and authors with their publishing blogs.

    I wouldn't be where I am today without their kindness and generosity!

    >Auxerre: Unfortunately, anytime I mention something that *might* happen, people immediately want to generalize and assume that's how things *always* happen. This is why myths become so pervasive.

    I've mentioned several times on my blog that sometimes I find clients through my own contacts or my own efforts, rather than through queries.

    In no way does this translate to to "Queries don't get us an agent but being discovered does." Not even in the least.

    If you're reading the blogs and twitter feeds of other agents, you know the query system is alive and well, and many agents are regularly signing new clients based on queries.

  142. Rachelle on March 7, 2011 at 12:37 PM

    >Jaime 11:15 and everyone else: This is kind of a no-brainer but worth mentioning. You should never use an email address that is connected to your ISP. (Your Internet Service Provider.) They change, they go out of business, you move, or you decide to change ISPs… and now your email address is no good. It's no way to be professional or even keep up with your friends.

    Always have an email address that will follow you wherever you go, is accessible on any computer in the world, and is highly unlikely to need to be changed due to the company going out of business. There are QUITE A FEW ways to do this. Gmail, yahoo, register.com, among others.

    >Thanks. Good reminder. I've had mine listed for years, but looked again and found to issues:

    1) "Contact" was in both the footer of every page, and on a drop-down menu from "Bio," but people might miss those, so I added it to the very bottom of my sidebar, another place people often look.

    2) Through various blog redesigns, I'd knocked it off there without realizing it. Whoops. I just put it back.

    BTW, I think it's very useful to actually use the word CONTACT. Lots of people don't want to visually search your page and just do a Find command on the word Contact or Email.

    >Thank you for pointing out this issue. The more I learn about the writing and publishing business (I've only been at it about 8 years) the more I realize how frustrating an agent's job can be.

I do so much work with others on the web that I want to make sure I am easy to get a hold of and I have a "throw away" email address, so the spam doesn't bother me. Gmail is great about spam protection.

    I always appreciate it when the authors I am trying to contact put their information directly for me to find. Makes my job so much easier and less frustrating. And I especially appreciate the ones who use their NAME and not an alias on their email program. I can't tell you how many times I try to find a name in my Outlook program and can't find that person because their email is under a different name.

    Thanks for sharing this morning! 🙂

    >Just wanted to underscore how vital it is to include contact information, so long as it's appropriate. Ditto for business cards. At the Blue Ridge conference last year, one male writer handed me his business card, but it had ZERO contact information on it, which meant it had practically ZERO value the moment he walked away. On the other hand, an attractive female writer handed me a business card with way too much info on it, including a nice studio portrait of her and her exact street address. I went back and urged her to get them reprinted without the location of her home. No reason to give potential stalkers a head start!

    >Anon 9:40: Yes, I'm closed to queries right now. I took on new writers I'd been in conversation with for weeks or months already.

    Unfortunately I think many writers get a warped view of how the whole system works, and that's understandable. How can you know how it works when you don't sit in our place? The truth is, it's not a cut-and-dried linear system. It's not like we just open up our queries, find a good one, and offer representation. It may work that way sometimes, but often, there's a lot more involved.

    I might find a writer I love but because of a full client list, I can't offer to rep them, so I have to wait. There are other factors, too.

    Also, when I closed to queries, I still had a backlog of queries I hadn't even looked at yet.

    The truth is, there are many ways I could find new clients without ever looking at another query again.

    I made the change this morning and added a contact e-mail.

    >I was one of those without contact information on my site. I shared Rebecca Bradley's oversight: it's not something that I really thought about until this post. Thanks for pointing out the obvious! It escapes some of us, especially me.

    Yes, I am going to add it today. I already have. It is in my sidebar.

    I took Katie's tip, too, and put it in my Blogger profile. I had been wanting to respond to some of my commenters via email and didn't realize that my email wasn't available for others! Oops!

    >There are many occupations which necessarily include public contact information. And many available options for handling the need.

    My husband was a news editor for years, and so we lived with much public scrutiny and exposure. For me, it has been a matter of learning to trust God to care for me in every way, including this exposure and subsequent risks.

    Yes, we need to be wise, not foolhardy with our information. But that doesn't mean we should hide.

I have found I’ve been getting more emails lately asking me to “partner” my blog with diaper companies and such. Now, I’m a fan of diapers as much as the next guy, but I’m just not sure that fits what I’m trying to do with my platform. (Maybe it’s time to get a gmail email address.)

    Thanks for posting my picture and link this weekend. Fun surprise!

    >It's a good reminder that we take two-way communication for granted. While we're on the subject of pointing out an absence of email contact, it may also be helpful to point out to authors that if people leave comments on your blog and you never interact by responding, that's a turn-off too.

    Of course, if you get lots of hits on your blog/site you can't respond to everyone, but letting the commenters know you know they exist is a good thing.

    But easy to take for granted. There are blogs of authors I've given up visiting b/c the author never interacts w/the commenters.

  175. Rachelle on March 7, 2011 at 8:15 AM

    >Jane Steen and Anon 1:55: Let's get a couple of things straight. First, I am never, ever, emailing someone "waving a contract." I may want to enter into a conversation. I may want to ask them if they're agented or if they even have book ideas or aspirations. I may just let them know I'm reading their blog and would love to hear from them if they ever do have a book proposal. It's networking and I like to be in touch with lots of good writers.

    That leads to my next point. Anon 1:55, you seem to be missing the connection here. One of the reasons I didn't take any new clients through query alone last year was because I'm out there making my own connections. It's my job not just to "read queries" but to "find good writers." How I do that is up to me, and my time is well-spent following up on referrals (a client tells me "check out this person's blog!")

    By the way, whoever keeps harping on "zero out of 10,000 queries," take note: I DID take on new clients, just not solely through the query system; and in 2011 I've already taken on 6 new clients, some through queries.

    >I've always had my email address on the "about" page of my blog, but recently changed the title of that tab to "about & contact" when a blog reader said he couldn't find my contact info. It's not always as clear as we think it is. Thanks for reminding us of that in this post. 🙂

  177. Katharine on March 7, 2011 at 8:06 AM

    >*facepalm* I left mine off for privacy issues! (I'm sure that is so 1999!)

    I just mentioned this to my husband, (Mr. Techie) and he said, "She's right, you DO have yours don't you?"

    Okay, it's now on the to-do list.

    And I'd LOVE to know the answer to Jane Steen's questions.

    Thanks Rachelle for this timely, albeit embarrassing, reminder.

  178. Timothy Fish on March 7, 2011 at 8:00 AM

    >I would like to make a few observations about the comments:
    Heidi mentioned privacy concerns. I don’t really see that complete privacy is an option if you hope to be a successful writer.

    Adam Heine mentioned Anonymous’ gripe. I agree. The gripe is getting hold. Anonymous made his point the first time he said it. Most of us don’t agree with him. Let’s move on.

    Melissa suggested that her contact information may not be relevant at this point. If you say anything of value online, your contact information is relevant. I have newspaper editors and bloggers contact me to ask permission to copy something I have written. I also have people who contact me to ask for advice after reading something I’ve written about some subject.

    Some people are concerned about making their e-mail available because of spam. I have several e-mail addresses and I make them all readily available, with mailto links so people can click on it and it will (usually) bring up their e-mail edit window. I still don’t see that much spam.

  179. BK on March 7, 2011 at 7:33 AM

    >Never thought about it–that's what I thought the comment section was for (and I've had people leave me generic "contact me" notes there (legit and spam).

  180. Michael Hyatt on March 7, 2011 at 7:19 AM

    >I totally agree. I have both my email addresses on my contact page: my personal one and my professional one (both encoded so the spambots can’t grab them).

    I used to include my cell phone number. It was never abused until some trolls in Europe got it and started calling me daily.

    >I'm one of those people, and I can only plead thoughtlessness.

Thanks for the helpful advice.

  185. Katie Ganshert on March 7, 2011 at 6:24 AM

    >I have mine on my blog.

    Can I make another recommendation?? I LOVE when people put their email address directly into their blogger profile. I get all my blog comments via email and for those who have their email addy's plugged into blogger, I can hit "reply" to the comment I got through email and email them directly back. For those who don't, I can't email back. I have to go to their blog or website and try to find their email address, and like you said, Rachelle, sometimes it isn't there.

  186. Manon Eileen on March 7, 2011 at 6:19 AM

    >Yep, contact page was one of the very FIRST pages I created for my website. It's vital. I even have my email address on the homepage, too. The easier you make it for people to reach you, the sooner they will.

    Not that I'm expecting an agent to contact me via my blog, but it's on my profile page if any one is interested. Please, please feel free to make contact. 😉

    I never thought to put it on main page of blog: had thought I'd avoid spam mail that way.

    >There's nothing weird about being "found" on the Internet. That's how my freelance career started — one of the editors of my favorite magazine saw my online scribblings and contacted me. You can believe that I framed that check stub! So yes, it does happen.

    I didn't have contact information posted on my site until very recently because I'm using WordPress, an exercise in ::head bang.:: People who use this platform get me, don't you, fellow WP sufferers?

    I'm not sure that my contact information is relevant to anyone at this point. I find social networking odious and disingenuous. I comment on the blogs of agents that I'm not querying. These seem to be the same gals who have the most to share, but sadly, we're not the right match. Ms. Gardener, I do so love your blog. It's my "go to" for information and encouragement — the place that talks me off this ledge of thought: "Ah, just delete all those pretty words and stick with paying clients and boring assignments." So, thank you quite sincerely.

    >Hard to believe you have time to scan strangers' blogs looking for potential clients, especially when you said you couldn't find one client out of 10,000 queries sent to you last year.

    >You're right – I should add mine. In my case, I started the whole thing to be anonymous and just hide from my friends (since I am writing about some of them) and just be this anonymous poster with the idea I am just learning how to write and tossing stories out there to see what feedback I get. But it has all been good, and my cover has been well blown by the folks who know me, so I guess making myself contactable is reasonable.

    >Oops, sorry you've been trying so hard to reach me. It's janesteenATcomcastDOTnet.

    Seriously though, I was wondering what would make you contact someone to ask if they'd like to be published? It seems to run so counter to the normal course of things, which is that we wannabe authors chase the agents with the light of hope (or desperation) in our eyes. The thought of a super-busy agent pursuing a blogger, waving a contract, is both titillating and weird. Does this happen often?
