Let’s get a little background first.
Every morning, I wake up to about 30 emails on my phone, and even though I attempt to not look at them, there they are. I have seven different email accounts that are being fetched and pushed. One for my job rflores at Socious dot com, two for my web businesses (support at wpcrutch dot com, ray at FloresSquad dot com, one for my real estate stuff ray at Coberealestate dot com, one for gmail ray flores 88 at gmail dot com, and my personal one ray at Ray Flores dot com. These accounts are basically a result of trying too many things at once and not narrowing down the focus, in the end, causing more headache than reward.
So, I was speaking with my wife, and I has asked her to forward me an email, to which she replied “which email address to you want me to send it to?”…and that is when it dawned on me that I really have too many email addresses, and further, I have too much stuff going on. So, this is where I am at.
I am going to consolidate all of my emails into one or two eventually, but for now, that same consolidation attempt will start with narrowing down my ventures. And with said, I am here to tell you that I am closing the doors on my little project WPcrutch.com. It was fun while it lasted, and I made a great return at with it, not too mention the community clout that was had, but need to cut my ties now and look back at it as a learning and earning experience. With that, I also get to say goodbye to the email address, which will be minus one in the stable (and that is a start).
Although the supported customers that are currently subscribed to WPcrutch.com will not be visiting that website any further (or using that email address either), they will all still be serviced, but through a different channel,

Like you I have several email addresses.
–One for my photography
–One for my both of my blogs
–One for web sign ups
–One for work
To consolidate they all filter through gmail. Unfortunately, they all are heavily used so I cant dispose of any of them.
Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff, Ray.
That’s the tough part, is the use…in ‘heavily’ I am sure you mean that you are very active in each thing you do…and I, myself, am trying to also consolidate those activities (or ventures) that I am involved with…that will help with my emails too 🙂
