Question for you:
When you say write an email to a friend asking how life is going, how do you choose your subject line?
These are the emails to friends who live a fair distance from you and therefore you want a total life update - career, life, running, babies, trips, etc. Well, if you're nosy like me anyway.
I find these emails can get a bit long (I'm verbose) and cover a WIDE range of topics (see above). I often struggle with selecting a cute/witty/sensible subject. I mean, I can't label it "running" when it's not JUST about running. Often, I find myself writing "life update," "howdy ho!" or simply the day of the week. None of these make my inner journalistic self happy and yet, I can't think of anything better.
Sometimes, witty (and probably only funny to me) phrases come to mind but I think "eh, she won't get it" or "why be humorous when the whole email tone is serious?" I don't know. It's quite possible that I over think the simple task of choosing an appropriate subject line. But all the same, I'd like your input.
On another note, I made something very drool worthy last night. I'll give you a hint: it involves peanut butter, powdered sugar, melted chocolate and utilizing your freezer. More to come on that...
Thank you for everyone's encouragement on the trail race! It's clear that you guys enjoy these race reports. I guess that means I'll have to find something else to sign up for. But don't worry, I'm already registered for a 5K on April 23rd that involves a free glass of wine at the finish line!
How do you choose your email subject lines? And any guesses on what I made last night?
