Too much that's for sure, but I can't bring myself to get rid of most of them because they are all important to me on some level.
Let's take a look at the first 10 I see...
- This just popped in, Market Watch. I don't follow the stock market, but my husband does, so by me following I get updates about all events that MarketWatch.com feels is moving the stock market in what ever direction it's going at that moment. So if Terry announces that the stock market is down today, I can insert the email headline and say, "Yep, the "Us Concern Over Federal Rate Policy" is probably what's to blame for the drag on the Dow." And I sound so smart, lol. Sometimes I am really amazed at what Market Watch feels will impact the stock market enough to generate an up-to-minute email post like, "Happy Birthday Harry Potter!", or "Wozniacki to Run NYC Marathon!", yeah I'm going start selling (or buying?) stocks based on that exciting news!
- Then there are a few emails from Amazon telling me my items ordered yesterday will be delivered TODAY! Oh how I love Amazon Prime and having a shipping center just a few hours south of us in Phoenix. The problem with being rural is that it is almost faster (and costs less if you factor in fuel) to buy most things on Amazon rather then drive over 100 miles (one-way) to the city that has the stores that sell the stuff.
- And then I get to one of my favorites emails, its my evening email from BlogLovin, sharing all the most recent posts from my favorite blogs. Let's see what's new today... First up I see a post by "A Fly on our Chicken Coop Wall, "Young moms have no idea how good they have it: Photography then and now", and a post by Making Our Sustainable Life "Canning Organic Plum Juice". Hey, lookie there, it's My recent post too. (I follow my own blog thru BlogLovin so I know how it shows up for my readers.) There is a post by Grace Grits Garden "Things I don't need more of (even if I live to be 104)", and there are a few backyard farming hops that I will visit to meet new people and learn new things.
- The next few emails are updates from Twitter about who followed me, RT'd or DM'd me since yesterday and similar updates from Pinterest and Facebook.
- There is an email from "Wendy Davis for Texas" (hey Wendy, just an fyi, "I don't live in Texas"). Wendy Davis for Texas is telling me it's the '13th Hour' and they 'need to reach $35,000 in donations by midnight!' I guess because I'm a Democrat they feel I should donate to all democrats everywhere. Well, I have nothing against Ms Davis, I actually like her and would vote for her here in AZ but I can't donate to every democrat in the country...I didn't make enough money in the stock market selling stocks on Harry Potters Birthday.
Once my first-of-the-morning chores are done I get to sit down and relax a bit to drink my morning coffee while I skim through the emails. If I get through them fast enough there is time to read some of my favorite blogs. Sometimes I leave a comment, but often there just isn't enough times if I want to read lots of them. But either way, I do enjoy the posts and feel inspired by the wonderful bloggers who have written them.
