More Linky Love, Because eMom Loves You


Last Monday, I was up until 2:30 am cleaning out my inbox of nearly 700 emails. I also more than doubled the number of email filters set up in my email client.

Today, at the end of the week, I have less than 40 emails sitting in my inbox. This is a HUGE improvement over usually 250 emails by Friday. I hope those of you who participated in Monday Motivation last week found similar improvements to your productivity.

The greatest part about it is that I am able to free up a ton more time for writing and running my business. I still need a ton of help, but until I hire (or win!) that VA, email filters will be saving my a$$.

This also means I have more time to spread yummy link love. :D

**My new addiction (thanks to Linksational) is reading I am Bossy. This woman is seriously freaking hilarious. She can even make slippers funny, I kid you not.

**Arianne Benefit of Neat and Simple has released a new eBook “Neat & Simple Guide to Organizing Your Office!” at an extremely affordable $12.95. Arianne is amazing and has been a bloggy friend for a very long time - I think she totally under-priced herself, but hey, I can be a capitalist pig. 

**And lastly, over the holidays I did a Blog Talk Radio interview with Antonio Crawford on his show, “Let’s Talk Blogging“. We talked about a whole bunch of stuff, mostly about blogging, how eMoms at Home has grown, and making money from blogging/working from home.

    I didn’t complete the challenge the day you issued it, but I did get my inbox to zero by the next day. Even as of right now, my inbox sits at 11 and Google Reader sits at 28 - PROGRESS!

    I know exactly how you feel about all those emails. I no sooner get it down to a manageable size & I’m avalanched again. That delete button looks mighty good on a lot of days… only thing is I might miss something important.

    Email can take up a lot of time. I turn off my sound when working so I’m not tempted to keep reading them as they come in.

    Even if the “delete” button does seem tempting under such circumstances, leaving emails unanswered is simply not an option as you would have a lot to lose as a result of such an approach in the long run. Hiring a person to take care of support issues is, in some cases, a must.
