Is Your Email Addy Professional?

This short blog entry is for all of the chickmagnet88, beachbaby1010, and sexygoddess69's of the world. I beg you, please change your email address. We all have those email's from when Instant Messenger was the coolest thing in the world - change them! You can keep those emails for your "IM-ing" purposes, but not for professional correspondence. My email used to be "PrincessL84@aol.com" that would NOT be an appropriate email for my professional use. The best option is to go to Yahoo or Gmail and create a FREE email address. The common combinations are "firstname.lastname@gmail.com" or "first initial.lastname@gmail.com".

If you aren't sure if your email address is appropriate - it's most likely not. Be safe, change it. Nobody wants "hotmamma85" working in their office.
