Ok, I'm going to define it - my way.
I love music and I have a handful of artists that I greatly admire. I follow them online to see where they might be performing and then Petey and I jump in the car and take off when possible.
If a musician's web site has a "contact me," I'm all over it. Why not? I send my compliments and almost always hear back from them.
|I was absolutely captivated by EG Kight. I email-stalked her until Petey and I could finally get down to see her in KY. We've seen her several times since then. She let me sing with her IN MY LIVING ROOM! We've become friends.|
There's a sub category to the "soft stalking" - it's called "mild email stalking." That is reserved for authors mostly but that's how I met EG too. I have sent many emails to authors telling them how much I liked their books and have always gotten a reply - and not one of those canned emails either.
Hey, who doesn't like an atta boy?
So, I'm wondering if stalking is too rough of a description of what I do.
Maybe I'm just a persistent, adoring fan.
