I miss snail mail. I can remember how exciting it was when I was in boarding school to go down to the mail box every day to see if I had any letters. I was disappointed many days, but oh how exciting it was on the days when I saw something waiting for me.
These days, mail just isn't exciting. People don't send letters anymore, and as I said, I hate opening my email accounts. In fact, it has gotten so bad I haven't looked at my Gmail account in weeks.
As I wrote in my last post, my goal is to turn to a more simple way of living. No, that doesn't mean you now have to send me letters only through the USPS. What it does mean is that I don't need the stress of all of the emails I receive everyday.
By the time I go through and delete all of the emails I don't want I am too tired to read the emails I do want. Or sometimes I miss important emails.
What's a girl to do?
Well, what I am doing is gradually going through my emails and UNSUBSCRIBING from all of the emails I don't want. I am finding that it is a long and arduous task and some of the emails don't have a way to unsubscribe. Those are getting moved to the SPAM folder.
If you find that I have unsubscribed from your blog email list, it doesn't mean that I am no longer reading your blog posts or that I no longer love you. It just means I am using different ways to read your wonderful blogs. I still have a blog roll on my sidebar. That is generally what I use to follow along with your blogs and I use the blog rolls on other blogs to find new blogs to read.
When I first got email I loved it. I want to feel that way again. I want to be able to find your emails when you write to me. I love those emails.
I think this simplifying life project is going to work out really well.
