The following email was sent to me anonymously by myself. I am posting it here because that’s what every permablogger does when they get anonymous emails:
First of all I just want to say that I love your blog. It’s tops.
Secondly, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a lot of “reader-submitted posts” and anonymous private emails that are posted on bloggernacle blogs. There are two things that I find fishy about this:
1) They are always some sort of confession or embarrassing question and are always anonymous (that or a name that the general bloggernacle isn’t familiar with).
2) I, the owner of the blog Nine Moons, have never once received an email like this. Not one. And not only have I not received an email like this but the only emails I have received regarding my blog (who weren’t my friends) were some thugs intent on defending DKL’s honor after the Monsters incident (don’t ask). No sincere or embarrassing questions. Nothing.
So my sincere and perhaps embarrassing question is this: Why is every other bloggernacle admin getting these types of emails and not me? And why have those same bloggernacle admin never written embarrassing questions in their own posts? I mean come on, are there really this many embarrassing anonymous emails flying through the internet tubes or are these “guest posts” just a mild form of Banner of Heaven?
