There is a live person running this blog daily, sometimes nightly and sometimes on weekend. Yes, all me.
In the last month or so, I’ve started a little spot on the right sidebar labeled “Gadgetress Status” to let folks know what I’m up to for the day. If I’m playing around with a fun new gadget, you’ll read about it right there. If I hear of a possible outage but can’t verify it? I’ll ask readers for input. If I need suggestions from readers? I’ll add my e-mail to make it easier for you all. On vacation? Check my status.
Since I know quite a few readers check the Gadgetress blog through RSS feeds or e-mail subscriptions, but this is one method of tracking me down every day. As an added incentive for readers to check, I may even offer a freebie. Like today: I’ve got a Star Wars Mimobot, a 4-GB USB drive that looks like Clone Captain Rex. Want one? Keep reading.
I’m on vacation until January 4, but I’ll be checking e-mail, comments and any movements made by the local cable and TV companies. And I’m getting ready for the Consumer Electronics Show, which starts a few days after I return.
So, even though I’m “gone,” I’m looking for any suggestions, tips and still want to hear from readers on any problems or frustrations when it comes to TV service or other tech-related services. E-mail me at email@example.com or leave a comment below.
From today through Jan. 4, anyone who leaves a comment or sends me an e-mail with ‘Gadgetress status’ in the subject line will be added to a drawing to win Captain Rex. (By the way, the Star Wars drive is a Lucas Arts pitch to get me to write about some new games, which I don’t cover. It includes press releases, which I can include for the winner if they want it…)
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and good luck!
