Keep me posted

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

“Please keep me posted, if you wish: I like to know how my readers' stories turn out.”

I include this at the end of most emails to customers (tutorial buyers), and have for almost a decade now. And they respond! Sometimes even many years later.

Anecdotes are as unreliable as cats, but that doesn’t mean they’re worthless. I have learned a lot from all those readers’ stories over the years. It’s like a never-ending survey about the beliefs, fears, and hopes of people plagued by chronic pain and injuries that won’t heal. I see it all, from kooky tinfoil hattery — “Finally, after all these years, I was cured by drinking a glass of fresh urine every night for just a week! Thought you’d like to know!” — to the heartwrenching and heartwarming.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
