Nice to meet you, roly.
Without any information about your "desire," I'm afraid it will be hard to give you good advice. But, if it is something you have been wanting to do your entire life, I don't see any reason not to, within reason.
Mailing people gives Roly a chance to guage who they are rather than just putting something out there for everyone to see. Trust me, there's a difference.
Roly has been on this site for years.
