If I Don't Get Back To You, It's Not Personal

By on

Hey all, I just wanted to let you know that if I don't respond to one of your emails or Contact Ben forms, it's not personal; I try my best to get back to everyone (and I really do want to help), but I don't have the best Inbox management skills or the most amount of time, and things just get lost in the mix. Of course, when work gets hectic, forget about it! Here is a screen shot of my current Inbox:

Yikes! All of those white emails or starred emails are ones that I have not yet read or have marked as Unread so that I don't forget about them. Clearly, I need to just sit down and go through all of that stuff. Anyway, moral of the story is, if like 4 or 5 days go by and you don't get a response from me, just email me again - chances are your original email got lost in the mix and sorry to say, I tend to go top to bottom in my inbox.

I forgot what I wrote to you exactly...
I asked if you had ever tried to make a CFC of the eBay API!
Hopefully, you'll tackle this for us slackers. :)

@Patrick,

This looks like a really good resource. Thanks. I really do need to come up with a good inbox strategy. Thanks.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
