So, you want to get in touch with me. Great! Here’s a bunch of ways you can contact me:
You can send me an email via m.s.daneshmandi[at]gmail.com
If you don’t feel like logging in to your email right now, you can use the email form at the bottom of this page. You’re welcome.
Because of my lifestyle, I’m not always available. Email allows me to answer at my own discretion. Plus it’s writing, my favourite mode of communication. Write me an email and I’ll promise to get back to you ASAP.
B) Social Media
Currently, I’m most active on Instagram @simplysaeed. I post photo-stories of my life, lessons, and travels which I hope to move to the site later. Until then, take a look at my profile and if you like what you see, follow me.
Facebook was big in Iran a few years ago and I did a lot of my serious writing there.But then everyone started shifting to Instagram because it’s not filtered and it suits the fast-food culture more. Accessing Facebook is a challenge, but there’s always a way 😉 Find me at @Saeed.Daneshmandi.
I also have a profile on LinkedIn as @SaeedDaneshmandi. It’s not as up-to-date as I’d like it to be, but it will still give you a sense of my professional side. For the bigger picture, you’d best subscribe to Simply Saeed.
Sadly, Twitter is the last place I signed up because of filtering. If not for the hindrance, Twitter’s focus on writing would be ideal for me. Oh well, what better time to start than now? Keep an eye out for me, tweeting as @SimplySaeed.
I also have a Telegram channel. It’s a feature that allows me to broadcast my messages to the channel’s subscribers. I’m planning on making it the blog’s spearhead in the social messaging app, Telegram, which is very popular here.
C) Mobile Number
I thought a lot about whether I should put my number on the website or not. Eventually, I decided I’d do so with caution. So here’s the caution:
I don’t like long telephone calls. The acquaintance/friend/family calling has no idea what kind of situation you’re in and neither do you. I can’t talk about improving your speaking skills if I’m wondering where to camp! I might answer out of politeness and feel uncomfortable throughout the conversation, or prefer not to pick up and risk forgetting to call back later.
But sometimes you need to ask or tell me something and a quick call can solve all. For those instances of urgency, I present to you my humble mobile number: +98-911-1392802
D) Social Messaging
We’re actually quite well-equipped in Iran when it comes to messaging apps. My mobile number will connect you to me on Telegram, Whatsapp and imo. On Skype, you can find me @Saeed.Daneshmandi.
