____________________________________________________________________________________________For any person as OCD as I am everything in your life has to be organized. From your iPhone apps, to your agenda. One thing I’ve always struggled with is my email. When I was younger I never checked my email and when I finally did, there were usually 200 unread messages. Now that I’m older I’ve completely started over. I have two email addresses: yahoo for my personal email and gmail for my blog email. I absolutely have to get organized or I will never be able to find anything again. So I’m going to go through both email hosts and show you how to organize your email.
There aren’t that many options for organizing on yahoo mail. I think gmail is easier for that.
Important or star// When I label something as important or star it, it means I have to do something with that email. I need to reply, or reference back to it. When you do this, it also saves it into it’s own folder and you can look back and click on the “important” folder and see what kinds of things you need to do. Basically a to do list for me.
Primary and social// This is one thing I LOVE about gmail. It filters everything that’s from an actual person and what’s from twitter, tumblr, etc. I LOVE that. I love being able to see what followers I got on twitter BUT I don’t want it on my main email when I’m trying to work.
I used to be a yahoo girl through and through. But I decided to try gmail for my blog and I have to say, I definitely like gmail more now. If I had to recommend one, it would definitely be gmail!
