Blogging an E-mail

Filed under: Uncategorized — jdoolittle @ 5:44 pm

Today I wrote an e-mail to Becky using links, like I am doing during this very blog.  It made writing the e-mail more fun because if I was unsure whether or not she would know of something or someone in my e-mail, I just linked to that thing or person.  For example, I told her about a dream I had where Christopher Walken was a conquistador.  I linked “Christopher Walken” to a page listing his works from Internet Movie Data Base, and conquistador to a web site about Spanish Conquistadors.  Not only did writing in this way serve as a means of information, it was also fun.  I linked normal words to online dictionary definitions and wikipedia entries.  I wrote about a friend of ours and linked to a picture of her on my blog.  I did it using gmail, but I bet other mail services enable linking as well.  I strongly recommend that everyone try it.
