The List » Go Back

Dear all,

I just created a list for the emails I'll be sending out during my trip. What trip? For those of you I haven't talked to in a while, but decided to add to the list anyway, I'm leaving for a round-the-world trip this week. I'm planning to be gone for about a year, but acknowledge it could be shorter or longer based on any number of circumstances.

Please let me know if you don't want to be included on this list or want me to use another email address. I know some of you have too many emails as it is, and I know how irritating it can be to continue receiving emails from some carefree, happy-go-lucky traveler while you're stuck doing your 9-5 grind in corporate hell. I've been there.

So, if you want to be taken off the list, let me know. Don't worry, I won't take it personally. Just say, "I'm too busy, but thanks," or "I haven't talked to you in three years. Why are you emailing me? I hate you and you still owe me three dollars." Something simple like that and I'll get the message.

If you want to continue receiving these emails, don't respond to this.
