Yahoo Mail (for me and countless others) has been down for almost 3 days, meaning I haven’t received any incoming mail and have absolutely no access to my contacts list or saved emails. This has been a hassle for me to say the least. I have no idea when this issue will be resolved, and while Yahoo fixes their sh*t, I can’t wait for them nor can I trust them in the future.
Today I’ve went about the arduous task of creating another email address, going to countless sites (I’m sure I’ve missed more than a few), creating new log-in & account information.
This creates many problems for me since firstname.lastname@example.org is listed in the 13 books I’ve published and in countless blog postings, two websites, and on many pages and groups I run. I will slowly change this as I come upon the publication/site/page.
Any and all correspondence for me is through email since it would be an all day job keeping up with Goodreads/Twitter/Facebook(personal/page/group) msgs, and since I no longer get notifications sent via email (laughs in disgust) I will have no idea if you’ve approached me on those sites. I prefer everything dropped into one handy location that I check a few times per hour.
If I’ve corresponded with you via email, I’ve lost those msgs as well as your contact information. If you wish to be in my contact list, you’ll have to send me an email with your information again. My apologies.

I thank you for your understanding.
