One of the things that has bugged me for a very long time is the amount of junk and advertising e-mails I receive every single day. It is so overwhelming to find 60 new messages every day and most of them I deem as "Junk"
My inboxes are clogged up with rubbish and I quite often miss important e-mails because of them. So with my enforced rest time I decided to put it to good use and have steadily been blocking, marking as spam and unsubscribing from the 100's of companies that seem to have my details !
Let me tell you it is worth the effort ! My inbox is so much cleaner and I can now see and respond to e-mails that are in fact important. Like your blog comments.
I am not making New Year's resolutions for next year but am changing the way I do things and part of that is to simplify my life and that includes my online life. I want to be able to spend more time on the things I love and less time on things that do not matter like JUNK e-mails, so take my advice and spend the time unsubscribing ! You will feel so much better.
