I get a lot of email, and I read every one of them. Unfortunately, I might not be able to respond to your message quickly, or ever. It is a better use of time to write and research articles for everyone than reply to many people individually. Please don’t take it personally if you don’t receive a reply.

Emails that are unlikely to get a response typically fall into one or many of the following categories:

  • They are ambiguous or otherwise make it hard for me to generate a reasonable response.
  • They are not a question or proposal that interests me.
  • Nothing really good would happen if I did respond and nothing really bad would happen if I didn’t.
  • They are a long copy and pasted press release that isn’t aligned with the goals of this site.
  • They are an email asking if I received your previous email.
  • A corporation is asking for me to advertise their multi-million dollar business for free, or nearly free.

With that said, please feel free to shoot me a short message at thingstodoinalbany at gmail dot com, especially if you are an actual person looking to share interesting and fun stuff going on in the Albany area.
