Black Friday, that special time of year where I unsubscribe from as many email lists as I can. ๐Ÿ“ง ๐Ÿ’€

In reply to: Marcelo Marfil - A love letter to emails

And at that point, I realized the problem was never the medium. Emails were designed to be nothing but a way to exchange messages between people. It was we who tried to turn it into some sort of hub for all of our junk.

Over the last week Iโ€™ve received 3 emails from folks asking me if I have any interest in posting sponsored content for them. I donโ€™t have much interest in doing this, but Iโ€™m curious a) how they found my blog, b) why they think my posting content for them is worth their while (I donโ€™t use analytics, but judging by server traffic, I canโ€™t have more than a couple hundred visitors a week, at most) beyond potentially boosting search visibility, and c) is this really a job!?
