  • I’m Moving My Blog’s Email Subscriptions To MailChimp

    To improve the quality of my email subscription service, I’m now using MailChimp. Those of you who have already subscribed to my daily blog updates should not notice a difference, other than getting the emails more reliably. It seems that emails might not have been sent for over a week. If you didn’t get any, […]

  • “We’re Done Now. Shut Up and Go Away”

    I got an email from my legislative representative — at its bottom was the notice: Please note that any reply to this email address will be sent to an unmonitored email address.

Thankfully, only 500 e-mails were waiting in my inbox and most could be discarded without reading more than the subject line. After accepting a few meeting requests and placing a few phone calls to ensure […]

  • Sabbatical Plans

    My sabbatical starts when today ends. Wow! I still have too much to do or delegate… I read recently about the concept of e-mail bankruptcy (thanks Josh for helping me find that link). Although it sounds tempting, I will process my e-mail inbox before sabbatical starts. Do or delegate is the plan. My family and […]
