I’ve written 500+ blog posts and not until I developed a Starter Kit did I start getting so much direct email though the Contact me link on my blog. Of course, not all of it ends up reading like this (comment), far from it, rather let me give you an example:
i 2 m working on facebook app
i try install ur starter kit but it not appear
need u 2 send me solution urgent
i didn’t understand plz help
This kind of writing drives nuts. Perhaps if my kids were teens I might appreciate this a bit more but they’re 5, 3 and 1. While this isn’t an actual email it is representative and as you can imagine, not exactly the kind of thing I look forward to reading. I used to feel obligated to respond to nearly everyone who felt the desire to reach out to me via the Contact me link but seriously? I don’t know, and don’t really want to know, if there is a name for this “style” but I find it difficult and halting to read. How it makes sense to reach out to someone with a message like this asking for help? Yeah, this ain’t it.
Granted, in some cases it may simply be a language barrier but I’ve gotten plenty of messages written in this “style” where it’s pretty clear that’s not the case.
