Of course, I want exposure for my books and for my business, but I'm leery about email blasts. Impersonal and annoying. I know it's a fairly popular form of marketing, but if it bothers me, I'm sure it bothers other people. There's got to be a better way to get people to support you.
I think about how annoyed I get when my friends (who NEVER or almost never) communicate with me otherwise, tend to forward, forward and FORWARD all those random emails from to me and everyone else in their address books. There's no personal touch, and something about that is cold, stale, and insincere. And annoying.
I love my friends, but I hate those emails. I think it's kind of the same thing with trying to email blast people about my books and business. I think a lot of people feel the same way. There's got to be something else that can be done to make people feel connected and not just collected. *Thinking*
