Update readme.md (#427)

These are things I thought would improve users' usage and comprehension of the project.
Feel free to make any changes or throw it out altogether.

* Minor elaborations
* Add a notice about the new labels and link to the issue requesting help organizing them
* Inline email link instead of directing readers to the link at the bottom
* Point "watching the repo" link to a page that lets readers watch the repo
* Add a disclaimer about questions that may not be answered (by you or otherwise)
* Add a disclaimer about audio and video answers, linking to the corresponding labels
* Add section header for alternate contact mediums for better separation from disclaimer

- Be civil and polite :)
- I will not help you with a question that goes against my personal moral standards.
*I can also be reached on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/kentcdodds) and [email](mailto:kent+ama@doddsfamily.us), but I prefer [this medium](https://github.com/kentcdodds/ama/issues/new). It's often the only way I can justify taking the time to answer. Read: ["Hi, thanks for reaching out to me 👋"](https://medium.com/@kentcdodds/hi-thanks-for-reaching-out-to-me-d970e7e6632).*
#### Disclaimer
##### Answers from me
All questions are welcome but not all questions will be answered by me. Some questions may be answered by volunteers helping me. Others may not be answered at all. To increase the likelyhood of me answering your question it should:
- Be relevant to me or my opinions in some way and not something anyone could answer (those are better served by [StackOverflow](https://stackoverflow.com/), etc).
- Be helpful or interesting for other people. I prefer this medium to email because my time spent answering these questions helps more people. Answers that only help the asker are not an efficient use of my time and may not be answered. Read: ["Hi, thanks for reaching out to me 👋"](https://medium.com/@kentcdodds/hi-thanks-for-reaching-out-to-me-d970e7e6632).
##### Answer format
Some answers may be in the form of [audio clips](https://github.com/kentcdodds/ama/labels/audio-answer) or [videos](https://github.com/kentcdodds/ama/labels/video-answer). This is not meant to exclude anyone. I wouldn't have time to answer these questions at all otherwise. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to transcribe these answers and leave a comment so that everyone can benefit from the answers.
#### Other contact mediums
I can also be reached on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/kentcdodds) and [email](mailto:kent+ama@doddsfamily.us), but I prefer [this medium](https://github.com/kentcdodds/ama/issues/new).
