Link Suggestions and Other Promotions
Regarding “exchanging” links – I don’t do it. In fact, any email suggesting we do so to boost our ranks in search engines will be deleted without being read. I also don’t participate in link farms. I don’t wish to get my traffic that way. If you wish to link to my site, I’m grateful. If you wish to suggest your site for me to link to, please email me. If it is appropriate for Wing of Madness, I will link to it. However, I do not link to commercial sites selling supplements, tapes, therapeutic software, etc. I do not link to sites that are set up specifically to sell a book, unless the site has added value for the visitor, such as a message board or email newsletter.
Unfortunately, I do not have the time to answer most of my email asking for advice. I have a full-time job and a child, so I have very little free time. I don’t want to totally discourage contact. I occasionally have time to answer a couple of emails a day, but I definitely cannot promise a response. I love hearing from people who are just saying hi, thanks, etc., but please be aware that I don’t have time to write back, as much as I appreciate hearing from you. It’s what makes the time I spend on this page worthwhile.
Please check my Wing of Madness Depression Guide FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)┬áto see if I’ve answered your question there. Also, please make sure that you are not asking something that is answered elsewhere in my pages, or linked to on them. In other words, about half the email I get is people asking me to find information for them on some aspect of depression or medication which either I have addressed or one of the pages I’ve linked to has addressed. I have picked online sources which I think provide answers to most of the questions people have about depression.
Students, please don’t ask me to do research for your homework. Any emails along these lines will be ignored. There are a couple of hundred links on my site, so I’m sure you can find the information you need on your own. In my day, we actually had to go down to the library to get this information, so you have it easy as it is.

All email is kept confidential, and will not be published in any form. Bear in mind that what I write in an email is the opinion and advice of a layman, not a doctor. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
