Thought I would try one of the weekly writing challenges that WordPress have come up with, it’s called Mail it in. It is meant to be about sending an email to write a post. But I personally prefer the default editor. Plus the second part to it is:

  • Talk about email itself. Do you roll out of bed each morning, dreading to check your inbox? Or do you thrive on the accomplishment of clearing your unread emails each day? For those of us who remember the days pre-email, we know not to take online communication for granted and remember both the pros and cons of relying on telephones, snail mail, and even spontaneous visits to a friend’s home as the only way to stay in touch.

So here we go, here is my take on wonderful email (In the style of an email):


Subject: How awesome you really are 🙂

Good Afternoon Mr. Email,

I would like to take this time out of our busy schedules to tell you how you have changed my life, for better and for worse. Let’s begin…

You enable people to communicate over vast distances in a matter of seconds, share photos, documents and videos to our loved ones. You allow us to schedule meetings in both the real and digital world. You bring together people, who would never have spoken before. I can send an email, which can post blogs, update statuses, change features all thanks to brand new uses.

However, being more available to communicate has led me to a disadvantage. People who email us expect replies within a nano second of the email leaving their outbox. It also means we are more available for work to communicate to us, I.e would you come in today as we are really busy. SPAM! If it wasn’t for spam filters, my inbox would be struggling to hold it’s self together with all this pointless spam. But sometimes it’s useful.

All good things however must come to an end…so far your time is far from over keep up the good work 🙂

Kind Regards

Your number 1 user 🙂
