Why I Don’t Unsubscribe

Because it saves me money.

 

I don’t open all those pesky e-mails from The Limited, Staples, Office Depot, Petsmart or Southwest Airlines. I only give them the e-mail address with a robust spam filter that I can only check from my desktop. I’m brand loyal but I draw the line at my phone.

 

Plus, Southwest Airlines basically blackmails me for discounts. If I don’t subscribe to those e-mails for a certain period of time I lose bonus points.

 

If it weren’t for the cheerfully colored planes and dirt cheap flights, I’d hate them. Although recent controversy involving peanuts has given me pause…

 

The Limited offers affordable woman’s professional attire well tailored to my body type. Throw in the 50% off coupons in my inbox and there’s no going back.

Eulogy for the “One & Done”

Web design is dying.

 

Web development is gasping for air.

 

The days of one (wo)man shows of websites are gone.
Sure, there’s the *eh hem* “budget conscious” clients that want piecework for a song. Cheap, easy sites, usually in WordPress or Drupal that some intern or staff member can maintain with ease and a weak password. I’ve got these clients. They are some of my favorites.
