This week’s blog is short. I had hoped to write something wonderful, something inspiring, and something that would reflect human nature in a great way.
Yes, I am talking about my charity month.
It was a complete failure. In fact, my sales have never been so low.
I am not sure why it happened, I reached out socially. I hired a respectable company to do some email advertising with a mailing list of over 120,000 for this genre. (Even they were surprised by the response.) I got a lot of my friends to spread the word among their private circles, and a lot of promises from people I know. (Broken promises always seem to harm relationships, don’t you think?)
So … To save my face, I will not put up the sales figures, only the amount. If any of you who bought a copy, if you wish to see the exact figures, please write and I will gladly show you. (I do not expect a lot of emails.)
I will not however, allow this to stop me from believing people are basically kind and decent. It is my advertising and social skills which are dreadful.
Next week I will add the receipt for the money transfer to the MS Center, as promised, with a little bit added from myself… again simply to save face.
Maybe next time.
There is always a next time.
