OMG My Email Signature!

I could not help but giggle when I searched for an old email and found one from early 2006 (because with Gmail you never really have to delete anything!)... and this was my signature:
--
Aileen Apolo
www.friendster.com/aileenapolo
Manila, Philippines
+(63) 917-xxxxxxx

*4 days to Tappy's wedding
* 6 days to Ate Yay's wedding

"Lord, I shall pass through this world but once, any good things I can do, any kindness I can show, let me do it now, for I know I may never pass this way again."

ROFL!

My eyes popped when I saw I had my Friendster URL on my signature and I laughed out loud. And please don't take it negatively (especially to Jeff, please don't bonk me on the head). I started blogging on Friendster and essentially spent a lot of time on it back then. It was the only social networking site most Filipinos used during that time and now we spend a lot on time on many other sites. (My account is still alive mind you, I just don't have time to update it).

They say that experience is the best teacher and I guess I was fished out of the aquarium just at the right time.

And now this is my sophisticated signature (I'm sure I'll be laughing at it three years from now):

Did Bugs Bunny really say that? 

Anyway, I usually erase my signature when I reply to mail (unless it's needed). I used to list all of my blogs in my signature and eventually found it annoying because of the clutter. 

So kamusta naman ang email signature mo?

  1. Haha. Friendster adik po pala kayo dati ate Aileen. Haha :P

    I just realized that I don't use any email signature ever since. Maybe its time I start having one. :)

    Thanks ate Aileen for sharing. Hehe.

  2. @mcbilly yes you should! also helps generate traffic for your blog. I do check-out people I'm going to meet based on their signatures too coz it helps to start a conversation (especially since I'm very bad with names)

  3. Hahahah. For my personal e-mails, I only use my URL. For the internal emails, i use my complete name, contact numbers and other company info. hahaha.

    palitan na agad ate, wag na yang friendster na yan. place your "Be my Fan, add me on Facebook" line in your signature. :P
