I got a lovely e-mail earlier today from someone who expressed interest in TheChocolateLife a couple of months ago:
> I am sorry that it took so long to respond!
> I love your website! I looked into becoming a member but I am not a
> chocolatier. Do you need to be to become a member?
Here's how I [edited slightly] responded back:
You don't need to be a chocolate maker, chocolatier, chocolate writer or critic, sell chocolate, or anything like that to become a member of TheChocolateLife. You just:
a) have to like chocolate
b) want to learn more about chocolate
c) want to share what you know about chocolate
d) did I mention that you have to like chocolate?
If you can answer "Yes!" to any one of those questions please join us on TheChocolateLife.
PS. I want to thank the author of the e-mail for the enthusiastic (unsolicited) testimonial.
