A nice list of “do’s & don’ts” for querying!
Everyone always seems to have the most questions about queries: how to write one, what needs to be in it Instead of just saying this is how you write a query, I want to share some of the do’s and don’ts when querying me.
Some background – I have read and replied to over 600 queries since opening up to them a month ago (EDIT: This was an estimate, I just looked and it was over 1,000). That is a lot of queries and that is all outside of work hours. If you query me, you will most likely get a response late at night or on the weekend. Those queries are what inspired this post.
