How far would you go to keep in touch with your readers? Some website administrators have included their phone numbers and their email addresses, so their readers can contact them if they would like to ask them a question or to have a certain issue resolved; I think that is a wonderful idea.
In regards to email addresses, I think that a separate email address (not the one that you used to set up your WordPress account), should be the one to use for liaising with your readers; here is the reason why: the email address that one uses to set up their WordPress account, is the one that receives all of your WordPress notifications; it lets you know who liked which post and it also informs you of who followed your blog. If you are like me, you probably receive countless notifications on a daily basis and a person’s email can get lost among all those notifications. It is also a little difficult to scroll down all of those notifications until you find an actual email from someone. If you only have one email account, I would advise that you create another for this purpose. For example, if your blog is called: Poetic Justice, you can create an email in the lines of: firstname.lastname@example.org; this would make things a lot easier for you, because that email account was specifically created for the purpose of communicating with your readers.
Cellular phones are also a great way to keep in touch with your readers; they can either call you or send you a text message.
In regards to cellular phones, there are a lot of cheap ones on the market. You can purchase one that works on a prepaid plan; there is no need to take out one that works on a monthly billing cycle; unless you believe that is the better way to go.
Remember, that the sole purpose of that cellular phone is to receive calls from your WordPress readers; so you really wouldn’t be using it unless you are answering calls from your readers. Or, you have chosen to return missed calls from your readers.
If you wish to take things a little further, you could even include your Skype and Google Plus contact information.
For the record, you are not obligated to go this way. But, including your contact information on your blog gives it a nice profession touch.
