I have a serious problem with giving out my email address. I have no idea what is wrong with me. I used to have a yahoo account, but after several years I was getting twenty emails a day and eighteen were spam I decided I was done. No, it was not even spam. They were legitimate companies that I had KNOWINGLY given personal information to. Then, even though I freely gave these people my information, I would get irrationally annoyed with the situation. The thing is, I love getting email. LOVE IT. So it is just so disappointing for it to turn out to be total junk.
Anyway, I got my gmail account to fix the problem. I could then give my yahoo adress to all the random companies I don't care about and save the gmail for the important stuff. Like blogging and comments... You know, the good stuff. The problem is, I am an idiot. The plan was great in theory, but I seem unable to NOT give the gmail account. Even when old companies have yahoo I find myself changing it. WHY?? Do I need an email a day from Slones Market? Barnes and Noble? My vet?? Okay, the vet just reminding me to take Ellie and get her shots. That one might be helpful, bur still. STILL. This morning I had nine emails. One was real. I have tried to "unsubscribe" but it is clearly just a pointless link on these emails. Icould mark them as spam... But it seems sorta mean seeing as how this is all my own fault. Anybodyelse have this issue? Any ideas beyond a new email? I am so sick of being all like " mail mail MAIL!!... oh. Just pointless crap"
