What have I been doing lately? Housekeeping!
I’m not talking solely about the physical kind. Sure, I have enough of that to do after 3 years of deferred maintenance while living abroad, but with today’s digital world the amount of housekeeping required has multiplied!
Lately I have been cleaning out the “messaging” threads on various services such as: FaceBook, LinkedIn, Messenger, iMessage, WhatsApp, etc. Each one of these services comes with it’s own communication system and idiosyncrasies. For example, does LinkedIn really need to message me when someone I actively friended accepts my friend request, purely to suggest I “wave” at them (or is that FaceBook that does this? See, I get confused there are so many). I mean really, I was the one that initiated the contact, sheesh.
So here I am, cleaning out my “inbox” on who know’s how many services….
