A Couple of Resolutions: Updating Email

30 Dec

Hello, folks!

This is my first post in ages and for that, I apologize, but new things are on the horizon!

I come to you in my last post of 2013, to ask your advice on some resolutions for 2014. Generally, I don’t make resolutions, but I do know one thing about them: you must make a plan to accomplish them.

I have to resolutions for the new year:

1) Begin a calendar in which I write down something that happened each day, and continue it for years to come.
2) Ditch the email address I have had for 12 years, and get a new “grown-up” email address.

For one, the process is already in motion. After a quick trip to the craft store I will be all set to begin. For the second one, however, I need help. A lot of help.

I really don’t like the idea of a “firstname.lastname@something.com” email address, because let’s face it – it’s boring. And tell’s everyone my full name. I do like the idea of having part of my name in it, but I want some creativity to it. So, I ask you, what are the rules of email addresses when you don’t want to use your whole name?

I am thinking something like miss.michelle@something.com because its different than the standard and it doesn’t have my last name. Having my last name in there can become a real hassle when I change my last name when I get married. Is it too childish, though?

Suggestions? What are your resolutions for 2014?

    I have one professional e-mail, which is my name and another one which is the one I give to everyone else. I think you should always have two or three e-mails. One professional, one personal, and at least one for junk.

    I know some people have their email as contact.firstname@something.com. Depending how popular your name is, you might be able to get it as an email address without having to tack numbers to the end of it. I agree with the commenter above about having three email accounts.
