I’m trying to extricate myself from doing the local guild newsletter (actually, I’m extricating myself from the guild itself), and so far I’ve gotten four requests for the e-mail distribution list that I’ve compiled and maintained…and no clear successor for the newsletter has stepped up to the plate yet.
Some of you will recognize right away why this bothers me…basically, I’m being asked to give something that I’ve created and treated with dignity and respect away with no further control…not that anyone who’s asked for the distribution list would use it for commercial gain, but one mistake (putting the list in a “to” or “cc” field instead of a “bcc” field, for instance) and the whole list is out there for anyone. I just don’t like the idea that in some way I would be partially responsible for that, since I created the list in the first place.
Am I control freak? Nah, not really. Well…maybe.
In other news, I’ve bought a book about Seattle….COTFU may be relocating. A friend last night at the SBSTT pointed out, however, that it doesn’t matter a wit where the COTFU actually is, since she is in fact the CENTER of the fiber UNIVERSE. Very reassuring, that.
BTW, does anyone know a nice non-profit in Seattle looking for a PR person….??
