Trust Me... a Little...
I do not have all of the answers, listen with a grain of salt.
The internet is my home. I want to make it better.
- I am not an expert (do those exist)
- I speak from experience and frustration
- Trust me as much as you like, I encourage a second opinion.
Everybody Uses it
... and not everybody knows to write well.
Remember how we all raised our hands at the start? Right. We all use email.
Many people use email.
The biggest problem with this is that many people who do not know how to
write, or when to write well, use email. Individuals who are able to get
their thoughts into text, but do not structure it in such a way that the
reader is able to understand it well, or even at all sometimes.
Not that body...
This is just a silly joke... hopefully people laugh.
Sometimes we don't need to send an email?
It might be better to send it over Slack or IRC. If you don't have an email
alternative in your situation, start a movement, make it happen.
If you are lamenting all the emails you receive, everybody else is probably
feeling the same way.
Why Should I Care?
You ought to use a medium to the best of it's abilities. People use mediums
(facebook, twitter, irc, etc) because of what it does well.
Using a medium to it's strengths respects the wishes of the people that use
the medium. It maximizes the impact of your message.
There are nuances. It is hard. It is worth it in my experience.
