My confession

Last Update: January 25, 2018

I need to apologize to the WA community. I realized last night while looking at email that there have been notifications of a response to feedback requested. In Kyle's blog post on please give me feedback, i have forgotten to give feedback. I check email once a week or every other week because it's a time saving suggestion from a book called the 4-hour work week. I would delete all messages after a brief look at who sent it instead of reading them all.

I am truly sorry for this. I have not done it maliciously. I have taken on more than I can handle most times and I forget easily. I suffer from depression and chronic stress, this takes all energy to try to fight off never mind college, a full time job i hate and this place that i love and my family. I hope that you understand and give me another chance.

There's no need to apologize. There are a lot of us learning here.

My personal recommendation that I have found works best for me; check your emails several times a day, especially if you have some down time while waiting for someone, etc. I find it too overwhelming to be faced with hundreds of emails rather than a few emails as I check them more frequently.

It's just something you may want to play around with to find what works best for you.

Thank you for understanding Rick and I may take you up on that suggestion. I don't get to access personal email from my day job so I usually have to check at night or first thing in the morning.

I do have to add that even though I just signed up this month, I have been getting a lot of feedback from people as I am asking a lot of questions and providing comments to people that it's already starting to feel hectic responding; However, I have been learning so much by looking at other people's websites and articles.

It can be overwhelming. I have been here almost a year and I still have days where I don't know what to do first. Prioritize the time you spend, do a few comments, training, web building or vice versa order.

Yeah, I have 900 emails I am working through! Lol! It's a good method you have there...

Hope you make yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up once a day too!!!

Chin up!

Don't stress my friend. I am guilty of the same... Many times over. I switched off most of my notifications ages ago because I couldn't keep up with them all. Do what you can when you can.

Thanks. I felt guilty for not keeping to my word. I do try.
