Gmail’s Getting Packed Again

I’m back up to around 70 newsletter subscriptions (:lol:), but I’ve really done a good job separating the wheat from the chaff IMO. I catch up on my newsletter reading once or twice a week – no problem keeping on top of them because THESE ARE NOT those lame – sales – stalking – close – to – spam – my – good – buddy – has – a – brand – new – must – have – million – dollar – tool – crap – only – 24 – hours – left that we all have been exposed to from our friendly neighborhood “you-know-who” marketers.

I’m not saying the ones I subscribe to now don’t offer a service or recommend anything, but it’s not the non-stop daily or 3 times a week harrassment for every latest, greatest tool or ebook, ya know? Just nice and neat correspondence. That’s the way I like it.

Would you believe I actually *look forward* to my newsletter reading time now? Rather than feeling like I need to chain up my credit card because some guy I don’t even know is always grabbing at it. Or feeling like I’m just wasting time because all I did was skim and delete email crap.

Here are three newsletters that are newer for me and that I don’t think I’ve suggested here yet:

The Bob Silber Letter
*I love the feature “You Be The Judge – What Would You Do?” – provides important information on various aspects of Internet law and what you should know when doing business on the Net.

ProofRead Now
*Word of the week, grammar tips

eMarketer Daily
A daily report of the marketing world

One of these days I’ll put together the monster list of all the newsletters I subscribe to. A nice mix of everything – all kinds of great stuff.

I’m really glad I took time to be brutal and cut out the nonsense, unsubscribed from all that noise and took the time to enjoy and find the solid gold stuff.


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
