Ask Emerson

Dear Emerson,

My e-Buddy can only e-mail at school, so she won't be able to write me over the summer. We will start e-mailing again in September, but I want to stay involved with e-Buddies during the summer. What can I do?

I also noticed that I am still receiving reminder notices from e-Buddies. Why am I receiving those if my e-Buddy told me that she cannot e-mail during the summer?

Sincerely,
Waiting in Wisconsin

Dear Waiting,

I'm glad you and your e-Buddy will start e-mailing again in the fall! In the meantime, you can stay connected with e-Buddies by logging onto the e-Buddies Online Community. Just go to www.ebuddies.org and click "e-Buddies Community." If you don't know your User ID or password, contact us.

Once you have signed in be sure to check out our message boards! There you can communicate with other members of the e-Buddies community about all sorts of topics. This is a great way to chat with other e-Buddies members while your e-Buddy is unable to e-mail.

I'm glad that your e-Buddy let you know that she wouldn't have e-mail access. e-Buddies participants should also let the e-Buddies team know by logging into the e-Buddies Online Community. Once you've logged in, click "view status," scroll down to where it says, "Suspend your match," and enter the appropriate dates. By taking that step you will ensure that you no longer receive reminder notices during the time period that you and your e-Buddy are unable to exchange e-mails.

Also, by visiting www.ebuddies.org you will be able to read through the e-Buddies Blog and e-Beat (our quarterly newsletter). These are great ways to stay up-to-date with the e-Buddies program.

Signing off,
Emerson
