We get asked many questions here at Unbolt Me, so we’ve decided to put our heads together, make a big ‘clunk’ sound, and answer some of them for our dear inquisitive readers. (Once our heads have stopped spinning…)
1) Where’s Tati?
Tati’s out at the moment. She should be back any day or week or month now. Put it this way, Tony has left the porch light on for her. So please leave a message and he will get back to you on her behalf.
2) Who’s Tony?
He’s the Janitor of Unbolt Me. Don’t worry, he knows how to read and write, so you can trust him with your correspondences. Well, the less salacious ones anyway…
3) Why is Tony answering comments now? We want Tati!
Remember? Tati’s not here. She’s busy! So all your words must be filtered through TONY! Got it?! So, feel free to leave a message and he’ll get back to you… and blah blah blah… yeah, you get the drill. Sigh.
Okay, the real reason? Presently, Tati’s busy with work life and other obligations that preclude her from hanging out and laughing it up with our dear readers in the comments section on a regular basis. She does, however, read and appreciate every one of your comments so please keep them coming!
4) Unbolt was always a censure-free blog. Why have you started moderating our comments?
Every day, Unbolt Me receives such a large volume of comments on multiple posts that it can be hard for us to keep track of them all. Moderation has been enabled so that Tony is immediately notified as new ones come in. This way, he can give each comment the attention it deserves and none get accidentally overlooked.
5) So, do any comments actually get censored now? And what about private correspondences?
If you’ve recently sent us a friendly hullo via our blog or email, are we grateful? You bet we are! As writers, the attention is reassuring, and it reminds us that people are taking notice of what we put out there. As such, we’re sincerely open to connection and would not seek to ignore your messages or block them in any way.
Having said that, if you do enjoy our blog and writings, and if these have inspired you to drop us a message then may we ask that you share this via the comments section beneath any post of your choice on Unbolt Me? Of course, if you’re a reviewer, publisher, editor, advertiser or Hollywood producer who wants to film our writings, or you’re interested in our books and have a cool proposition about a potential business partnership then please do contact us via email instead.
By the way, if you are someone who is wanting to… well, flirt, have hot chats or share ‘intimate’ video… erm, good luck with that. We hope you’ll understand why we may no longer answer your messages here or via email. And if you continue to try and contact us, we will block you with a light heart. Please don’t be offended. It’s just not the kind of attention we want or need.
6) Why don’t you collaborate with other people? Are you snobs?
We have collaborated with many people in the past, and would gladly keep doing so if there were more hours in the day. Alas, there aren’t. We have many projects that we’re working on together, and in order for any of these to come to fruition we need to funnel our efforts in a more self-indulgent direction for the foreseeable future. We hope you’ll understand! And if you don’t, we’ll cry.
7) Why don’t you participate in blog awards and challenges?
Same reason as above. It’s a time thing. Ordinarily, we love receiving awards and blog challenges, and these have often presented wonderful opportunities to flex our creative muscles. Lately however, we find ourselves unable to address your acknowledgements individually and to do them justice. Instead, we’ve dedicated a couple of pages to link back to the sites of those who have generously recognised us.
