Contact Information can be Important

  christmas cornucopia

Tonight, I had a potentially important communication come through my contact page. Unfortunately, since all that I had there was a comment form, the lady that send me the message followed it up very quickly with another message telling me that she didn’t realize that the it would be published in a public location and requesting that I delete her personal information.

Since I had moderation on for new commenters, the message didn’t get published, so there was no problem. However, it did reemphasize to me the need for having a way that people can get in touch with you, especially if you are open to making money from your blog.

So, this evening, I took the time to do another of those things on my to-do list. I added a contact form to the contact page of this blog.

I don’t anticipate it being used very often, but it’s there now.

    That's a very good idea. I could not tell by looking at the form but if it is the regular plug in you might want to consider installing one that fights comment spam http://www.douglaskarr.com/projects/wp-contactfor… with the old contact form I was getting inundated with spam using this which adds a simple math question eliminated most of it. I only get real comments now. I also included a privacy policy on my website since I do hear from advertisers/business owners who do supply their personal info. You can find my policy here http://veganmomma.com/blog/privacy-policy/

    Let me make a correction using the new form it eliminated all of it. I know because for the "Title" I changed it to read "Vegan Momma's Contact form, when I see that appear in my email box I know someone is trying to contact me. All contacts have been legitimate.

    OK, I figured out how to add (Exit 78 Contact) to the subject line. That will help identify messages from the blog easier. Thanks!
