Musing Monday: E-Mail Etiquette

Maybe I should rename the musings on Monday to “Monday Rants” or “Provoking Monday”. Not sure.
I was wondering about this all week, not the renaming but how people deal with emails.
Usually all emails I get are nice and polite, so nothing to moan about that. Now and then some people – friends, colleagues, customers, human beings – ask me to do a job for them. A little translation, a little correction in a letterhead … just some minor stuff … which I like to do and respond to that quickly. The human at the other end gets informed that I am working on her/his job and that s/he will get the result ASAP. At this point they usually send me an email or sometimes a tweet to tell me how happy they are. Read more…

Thanks so much everybody for the hard work… so much appreciated! Read more…

Commenting Issues with WordPress

No Fonts today … there are problems to be solved.
Since a couple of days my fellow bloggers aren’t hardly able to comment on my blog. This makes me sad. Our WordPress Guru Paul Taubman of I Need Help With WordPress (hop over and give him a like!) made me aware of a forums thread at WordPress.com.

They are discussing it up and down … 9 pages so far, while I am writing this.
It is not your fault, it is not my fault, nobody is too stupid to comment … WordPress has changed the commenting system … not for the better. Read more…

Tweeting my Thoughts … my Top10Twitter-Followers

Oh yeah  – let’s talk about my biggest social media pet peeves: TWITTER

Ok I am doing a bit better these days since I am using hootsuite, which helps me a lot getting some structure into the unfiltered sound of the chirping and tweeting of 140 characters maximum per message.

I am still eager to figure out with whom on twitter I have the most interaction.

Using tools like crowdbooster or twitter counter are nice but not very helpful in that regard – or maybe I haven’t found the button which answers my question.

So I set up my personal Top10-List, which is no ranking like every list. It is my twitter-chill-interaction (like the wind chill temperature in wintertime) – these are the twitter user with whom I feel the most interaction, people who really interact with me. Love that. Read more…

You will need a new profile picture and a new cover picture. Read more…
