Ask EelKat Anything
Back in 2003 I had a blog titled "Ask EelKat" where I answered questions about, absolutely anything. Being an author, most questions were author related, people asking about writer's block and publishing and such. Over time other topics included homelessness, Autism, Gypsies, minimalist living, life in Maine, and of course the ever popular "amphibious aliens".
Any ways, after a while (2007ish) I stopped doing the blog because it got to a point I was receiving way more emails each day, then I could answer in a year, and life issues were preventing me from having the time necessary to answer your questions.
Now that I again have the time to do so I will be bringing back the series, but with changed.
The first time I did it, I had posted my email online and just said "Ask me anything." People did. At first it was 1 or 2 questions a week. After a while it was 1 or 2 questions an hour. Eventually it was several thousand questions a day. And that was the problem. I did not expect the influx of questions, I did not expect the variety of questions, and I had no idea how many people followed me online and read my stuff.
At the time of this post here (March 12, 2017) my web site (eelkat.com) is now getting 44,000 views per month (500k a year). Back in 2003, my site was lucky if it received 100 visits a month, so a lot has changed over time, including that a lot more people are reading what I write.
A lot of you have requested I bring back the Ask Eelkat series, and, here it is. I won't be sending out for email questions this time around. Instead I will be continuing to answer your questions already sent to me from before, as well as answering questions found on Reddit.
This page you are on now, is a site index page, for the Ask EelKat article pages on my site. I've divided them up by category to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
