Were You Thanked to Death?

I returned to my office on Monday morning from a week of vacation and began the arduous task of cleaning out my email inbox.  I kid you not–I had about 20 Thanksgiving emails from various lists to which I belong thanking me for being a client/being on their list.  After the first 3, the messages became meaningless.

Am I hard-hearted or just simply jaded by my Internet Marketing education?  Probably a little of both.  I deliberately chose NOT to send such a message to my list because I assumed everyone else was, and I’ve never striven to be like everyone else..:)  Perhaps it’s the thought that should count in this effort, but all I was thinking was that I’d rather be doing something more fun that cleaning this stuff out of my email inbox.

Apparently, I’m not alone.  There’s a great post on the aWeber blog, Holiday Marketing Tip: Don’t Send Pointless Greetings!

Now, a hand written Thanksgiving card would have been fully appreciated, but I didn’t get any of those..:)
