Day 5 - Email a Blog Readerthis assignment was relatively easy. Not because it was something I was doing already, but this is something that I can implement daily without using time that I often do not have. Seriously, how long does it take to email a new commenter to say "Thanks for stopping by my blog"? Oh about 3 minutes. ;) So I'm going to make an effort to email a couple people every day. Sometimes it may be a new person, other times it might be someone who comments regularly. If you blog you know that it's really nice to see comments. Even though I mainly write for my enjoyment it's nice to see that others are enjoying (or not) what I put out there. I think this is a nice way to let them know that I value their comments.
Part two wasn't all that difficult either. We were supposed to spend some time looking over our email systems. I still need to work with mine a bit. I'm using gmail and I've still not spent enough time learning how to use it effectively. I also need to work harder at responding immediately to things I read. Often I'll read an email and I'll say ok, later I need to ____ . Sometimes it takes me several days to get back to finishing what I should have done right away.
Thank you to Mariana @ riding with no hands, for hosting this Blog Spring Cleaning. I am really enjoying it and learning so much!
