Astro bloggers, when it comes to answering random anons and brave enough blogs, please, listen. Because apparently this is becoming a major issue.
All of you SAY you’re open to any questions in your inboxes but then you complain if someone doesn’t message you in the way you WANT them to.
“I’ve posted that answer before!”
Then link them to the post
“Why can’t they just search for the answer somewhere else?”
Maybe they value your opinion, trust that you are a reliable source, or just like the way you write out your perspective!
“I specifically put what I won’t answer in my FAQ!!!”
Maybe they didn’t see the link! Maybe they’re just trying their luck! Either way, it doesn’t hurt to give them a gentle reminder about it. Heck, even link the FAQ in the message!
In fact, you could ignore the message/ask altogether and pretend like you did not see it! THAT is better than posting a snide remark or rude answer back. Whoever wrote to you is human too, and if their ask was so annoying then you can easily DELETE the message.
If it’s rude commentary then it is a whole other story. Do what you must.
I’m just pointing out that there are fellow astrologers, beginners, and random everyday people who just stumble onto your blog who actively seek out answers from YOU!
…and some of you want to mock them for it?
Please, just think of this the next time you have a random or uneducated question in your inbox. If we want our study to be respected so much maybe we should practice a little respect ourselves.
