How many email addresses do you have?
I counted mine and came up with 8. How did this happen? I like simplicity. Having 8 addresses is not simple. Well, when Jim and I got married in 1998 we wanted a website, so we got www.jimandchris.com. We set up two email addresses at that domain: jim and chris. Then, when we set up our corporation: Guld Systems, Inc., we grabbed www.guldsystems.com and made two new email addresses there. Then, we did work for a couple other companies and we both got email addresses at their domain. I set up a gmail account in order to use Google services, a Yahoo account for their services and a Microsoft passport account email. And now, we've come up with a new name for our current business ... Geeks on Tour. You guessed it, www.geeksontour.com! I'm chris at geeksontour.com. Should I get rid of any of the others? Chris at jimandchris.com is getting over 100 junkmails every day. They all go to my junkmail folder - so it's manageable. I like being chris at jimandchris.com. It's been part of my identity for 10 years and it's still my identity. Plenty of clients know me as chris at guldsystems.com - that's what is displayed on the opening page of programs I wrote for them. How about I just swear to not make any more?
