Dear All

Before everyone trundles off home to begin the weekend, I thought I’d take the opportunity to quickly thank you all for following Letters of Note so eagerly since its inception just 5 weeks ago, and reacting with such positivity. It has been, and will continue to be I’m sure, a pleasure to kickstart this blog and your many virtual pats on my back have been appreciated.

Regarding submissions: Thanks for all those that have been sent so far – most of them will now be in the queue, ready to go – and thanks especially to those who have actually posted correspondence to me. It’s been a long time since I received letters from humans, and it’s extremely enjoyable. I’m currently looking into obtaining a P.O. Box to make the process easier for everyone. I’ll update you all when that happens.

I’ve had a couple of similar questions regarding bad language contained within the transcripts of some of the letters. Namely that such words trigger off alarms in the workplace and subsequently cause Letters of Note to become a blocked website. Is this affecting anyone else? Either way, I’ll be censoring these words from next week so as to avoid this happening. It’s a mighty shame as I’ve always had a soft spot for expletives, but at least we’ll still have the pictures, and they’ll never be censored.

(Update) That was quick. I’ve just received two emails asking me not to censor the transcripts, plus the comments below voicing the same opinion. As a result I’m going to think about it over the weekend and then decide. 

Finally, I’m afraid any requests for ‘link exchanges’ will be turned down. There is no blogroll on Letters of Note and I’m 99% sure that it will stay that way. I love the layout of the site and am adamant that it will stay as clutter free as possible, no matter how busy we become. Apologies. 

That’s it for now. Sorry to disrupt the flow of letters but I thought it was time to say thanks. So, um, thanks. Normal service will resume on Monday. Have a spiffing weekend.



P.S. All admin-type posts, such as this one, will be titled ‘Dear All’. Just so you know.
