I just want to mention a couple of rants I’ve had recently. I’d love to hear yours. Let me know. Maybe we can start a weekly or monthly rant column. 😀
On the news, as early as mid-August, they reported the temperatures have been extremely high for the fall season. It wasn’t FALL yet and it still isn’t. The official Fall date is September 22, 2018. That’s tomorrow folks.
As long as I’ve been alive, August has always been the hottest month of SUMMMER. 🙂
To top that off, I received a newsletter last week that went something like this, “Can you believe summer has ended and it’s already fall . . . ”
As people, we tend to rush time. The rush to Friday, the rush to Christmas, the rush to cooler temperatures, the rush to spring flowers, the rush to summer, and the list goes on. I prefer to live in the present and be hopeful of the future. I haven’t always, but I do now. Must have something to do with my age.
If you’re like me, you’re subscribed to many newsletters and blogs.
When I subscribe to a newsletter, I normally expect one per month. I can even understand one a week, but I still prefer not to receive that many emails from one list. I sent a survey to my newsletter subscribers and I asked them, How often would you like to receive an email from me? The number one answer was once per month, and the number two answer was twice per month.
That said, I recently subscribed to a newsletter that sends me three (3) emails per day. What? That’s right, three emails per day. There’s another that sends out one per day. I’m not usually a long-time subscriber to these types of newsletters. Normally, they include the same information and more times than not, it’s wanting me to buy their product.
So, if you have a newsletter that you email to your subscribers, please keep this in mind. Blogs, in my opinion, are different. People can visit a blog and read at their leisure. You may think email is the same, but in reality, it isn’t.
If I save an email to read later, chances are, I never get back to it even if I mark it.
Note: The above are my opinions based on experiences.
Have a great weekend, and please let me know of your recent rants.
