It feels like I'm in a constant conversation with most people via email. So one doesn't keep saying, "Dear Friend," every time the chat comes back. So why bother with the greeting? Just get to the point, right? Is that bad?
I'm publishing more here through the post-by-email feature that WordPress/Jetpack provides. I'm an email guy, so it's perfect for me. One screen for everything, thanks to the shortcodes embedded in the text, although at times I have to consult the list of them for the one I need.
Email is here to stay, even though it's demise has been prophesied many times over. If it depends on Y.T., it will flourish mightily.
