Dear Co-working co-habitant,
I’m glad that your headphones help block out external noise with music of your liking. Unfortunately, they do not block out the sounds of your loud humming to Vampire Weekend.
I am annoyed by the tendency for B2B articles that try to tie in their ideas via pop culture references. I’m sick of articles that discuss "What Mad Men tells us about Programmatic" or "Breaking Bad Creative: How Media Planners Can Use Today’s DMP". What the what?
Good ideas in articles address the needs that particular readers may have within the vagaries topics within their professional day to day. Bad ideas and link bait will just dress themselves up with cheap cultural buzzwords.
I am no longer the owner of a corporate email address, however, I have been making “professional” inquiries on behalf of myself or others to various vendors and people. Upon reaching out to these people, I find that my email address has put me in the “kooky sales lead” or “what kind of email address is that?” pile. While I realize this, I have no intention on changing my email address to anything that associates my name in a more professional manner.
1) This is my personal account. Perhaps you state that I should have a more professional alias, and I do, but ultimately, the email reply from me will come from my gmail address.
2) There are just too many people with the same name as me, and I would rather have an email sent to me go to the island of misfit email addresses due to a typo, rather than JaneKim1832, instead of going to JaneKim1833.
3) I’m lazy
4) I’m maintaining singularity for now (which is something I’ve debated internally when it comes to online public presences). My email address is consistent with most of the usernames that I have on my social presences. Just makes it easier all around.
