A week ago I sent an e-mail to Paloma Capanna's campaign requesting an interview and I never got so much as a reply. Now I'm a big boy, my feelings aren't hurt, because the real loser in this situation is Paloma. She had the opportunity to get her message out by answering a few easy questions, but as all my emails to the campaign, it was ignored. Now I know my readership is decidedly supporting another candidate, but I've given her a great deal of coverage and avoided taking shots at her like many of my readers would have liked. Initially, I thought her campaign would be more likely to embrace bloggers, but it has really been the exact opposite.
Oh well, it can be a lesson for future candidates confronted with bloggers, take the opportunity to reach out. My readership has steadily grown and reaches a lot of important eyes, it was a win-win for her.
