I have decided to post an email link in the sidebar although anybody who already emails me might as well continue to use the address that you already have.
I decided to do this because I needed to share my email address with another blogger yesterday. That necessitated going into my profile and enabling it to show my address. Afterward, I went back and turned it back off. Hopefully, this will prove to me a useful and adequate compromise.
Speaking of new emails accounts. If you need one to do something like this, I have quite a few gmail invitations to give away, even though I didn't use one of them for my address.
Feel free to give me shout, whether you want a gmail account or not.
