Advice: Do Minnesotans Really Have Enough Email Addresses?
It turns out that your life isn't complicated enough. Make it complicated-er!
Lifehacker says that having one email isn't enough; in fact, you should have at least four email addresses to navigate the cesspool that is the internet.
By the way, thanks for stopping by my neck of the cesspool!
Why four email addresses? I'm glad I asked for you...
Email Address Number 1: Make it Personal
This email is your Precious. The filfy hobbitses must be kept away from this email. ONLY give this email to people (not companies) that you want to have it. NEVER enter this address into a web form. Ever.
Email Address Number 2: Trials and Shopping
Want to start a free trial or sign up for an app? Doing some online shopping? Use THIS email for that. It'll be inundated with marketing emails and spam, but at least your personal email (The Precious) is spared!
Email Address Number 3: Start Gatherin' the News
Are you into newsletters? If so:
USE A THIRD EMAIL ADDRESS FOR THIS. Why? If you use a specific email just for newsletters, you basically setup a curated news feed for yourself. Way to go!
Email Address Number 4: Side Hustle/Personal Business Stuffs
Love (sales) pitches? Use this one for those.
(Bonus) Email Address Number 5: Other
Need a fallback email address to absolutely wreck for those various "things" you peruse online? Use this one as the "sacrificial lamb".
