I get emails... HUNDREDS of emails... and I'm just plain and simply NOT able to answer you all. I'd love to - if I could quit my regular job tomorrow and blog full-time, I would do so immediately.
Unfortunately, I have to continue working my regular 8 (9, 10, 11, 12) hour a day job, and put it at least a modest amount of effort in my household. I then spend quite a bit of my leisure creating new content for The Vivienne Files, and I'm rather committed to eight hours of sleep.
This is just a drawn-out way of saying that if you've emailed me looking for advice, consultation, a special wardrobe etc. - I AM NOT IGNORING YOU. But I am so far behind in answering emails that I literally have a backlog of four months of unanswered messages, and in 1 day I receive emails that would take me at least 40 hours of work to answer.
I love hearing from you. I read EVERY email - I promise. But I can't kid anybody any longer - I can't keep up with responses. This doesn't mean that I don't care. It doesn't mean that you, or my blog, don't matter to me. But I do feel that I'm letting you down...
