    Hi Alyssa,

    I sent you an email last week but maybe it went into your spam folder by accident! I got a stack of Parenting magazines this month that all had the 20% off an amazon.com diapers purchase. I can’t possibly use them all (I did give one to my daughter!) so I’d be happy to send you five codes to give away to your readers. I’m a huge fan of your blog and love your story, so I’d be happy to share them. Just email me back if you’re interested.

    Thanks again for all the work you do on your blog!

    Sorry, Alyssa. I was multitasking and totally wasn’t clear! I wanted to make sure you got my email with the codes — that my email with the codes didn’t end up in your spam filter. (I just reiterated that I’m the one who had the codes so you’d remember who I am since I know you get a lot of email.) Sorry for the confusion… I should have had my morning coffee before trying to send a coherent email! Feel free to delete all these emails from your comments section so they don’t muddy up you website!
