  1. Let me tell you about how making an email 5 massive paragraphs (no matter how important the content) makes me glaze over and just read the first/last sentences.

    That said, you bet your ass I’m using “Reply All” at almost every chance I get. PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO SAY!

    • And that, Adam, is why people probably filter your messages from their inbox to a “don’t bother reading this” folder ;)

  2. I just saved several of these links. Thank you for sharing so many great articles. Most hotels have changed their loyalty programs. I just started following http://millionmilesecrets.com for good tips and updates for frequent travelers.
