Political Email mistakes

Blue hills.jpgIt pays to proof your emails, especially when you are sending out a political email to many people.  Some of you may have recently received an email from the campaign manager of a Gubernatorial candidate that exposed your email address to the many listed on the email roster.  This caught me by surprise as I am sure it did you.  I immediately emailed a reply and reported it, this led them to a swift reply of apology.  (It never should have happened.)

  1. Pays to proof your blog posts too…

    Gobernatorial?

    If you write first in Word you can use the spell check and also insert hyperlinks very easily. Then cut and paste in the blog.

    Before you cut and paste your story you can get really fancy and click on File, Web Page Preview. Once the web preview opens up click on View, Source. Then you will be in HTML heaven. Tinker around with it and you can learn to insert hyperlinks into your comments.

  3. Thanks! I always welcome advise. A spelling error vs disclosing email addresses are two different email errors, do you agree?

    They are indeed different. But proofing, as you suggest, would have identified the spelling error alone. Proofing is the inspection of the written word to make sure that it does not contain errors. Thus, the response to your post. It is a Glass House thing…

    Who you send it to is something different. You wouldn’t proof the list. In fact, no one has suggested that the list contains errors. The only gripe is a technical error where the list was made visible…

    Wow, I can’t believe I’m posting on this thread… I really need a new social secretary!
