I’m honoured by making it on that list, and very happy to hear that my blog’s stayed with you for some time. Thank you very much for your message!
Thank you for playing! I still have some anonymous questions left in my inbox, which I will answer as soon as possible in the next few days. Other than that it’s back to our regularly scheduled logged-in program.
I’ve had this theme for a very long time, and never heard this complaint before. I’m not sure I can fix it, but I will look into it.
I don’t know, quite a number of people can be pretty staggeringly bright with just fourteen (or even younger still). But thank you, I appreciate the sentiment and your message!
Unfortunately this is true! I try to answer as many as I can, however there are a number of reasons why I might not respond to an inquiry:
- The question is very common and has already been explicitly answered on my FAQ page.
- The question is so interesting that I would prefer to do a thorough series for all signs on it, rather than quickly answering it for one sign and have it get lost in my askbox tag. In that case I usually keep the message as a reminder of the subject I would like to write about.
- I did not receive the question. Tumblr sometimes does this really frustrating thing where says I have three messages in my askbox, but it only shows me two, no matter what I do. That’s not just a wrong number, sadly, that’s some messages plainly not showing up for me to read (or, on occasion, not even going through in the first place).
Sometimes it also simply takes me a while to get to a question, because on some days the number of asks I receive is quite large, and work and my own leisure time don’t always leave me enough time to dedicate myself as thoroughly to this blog as I would like.
What saddens me most about this message is that I am actually not 100% confident whether this message is an amusing parody of some of the criticism I receive, because I currently have a handful of tragically similar ones in my askbox.
If you were “just asking”, you would plainly ask me how old I was. Instead you already take a guess at my age, and additionally label this guess as “teen-girl”, presumably invoking the negative and sexist stereotypes wrongfully associated with this group of people (which, quite frankly, I find infinitely more disgusting than the - actually rather flattering notion - of being compared to a group of young and passionate women).
If your intention was not to offend, then I have to wonder what it was meant to be instead, because your passive-aggressive and immature dig at my reasoning skills and conduct certainly had nothing to do with inquiring after my age and say more about your mindset than they do about mine.
