Email confusionPosted: November 5, 2012
Whenever mummy has an idea on a Friday, it is usually a bad one. In theory it’s sound, but somehow the execution becomes overcomplicated.
A prime example of this is that on Friday just gone, mummy decided that I should have my own email address. Partly because I don’t use WP or Google reader and instead rely on email subscriptions to keep up to date with everyone. But (despite applying various filters) they were getting muddled with her personal emails. So she created me a nice new one and updated my WordPress details.
In theory this is a GREAT idea as she’ll feel more comfortable giving out the new address for competitions etc without the faff of adding extra gaps in the address or playing ‘guess the symbol’! But she hadn’t considered the consequences of this: now she has to check two email accounts as she’s still subscribed to some blogs with her address and others with mine. Most of my comments are going straight into people’s spam folders and overall mummy is very confused and thinks she should’ve left well enough alone!
I hope she figures it all out soon so she can stop moaning and normal service (bellyrubs, ear scratching etc) can continue !! In the meantime, should you need it, my new email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
Have a good moan-free monday!
