Change of Email Addess

By December 10, 2014 February 12th, 2019 Uncategorized

I have been using sohshishi@gmail.com when I started sending my first resume 7 years ago. I didn’t want to look unprofessional by using my email that I created when I was 13. (mailluvbug@hotmail.com… ugh…)

Then i started freelancing and i am still using sohshishi@gmail.com to correspond with my clients. Every now and then, I get random questions like “Is your name soh shi shi?!” and they don’t pronounce it correctly, they pronounced it as SHE SHE, which annoys me to no end… cause it sounded like pet name for peeing… Then I have to break into a monolog of trying to explain to them on how to pronounce it correctly.

But now, I just don’t care…. so, she she it is… (pun intended.)

After 6 years of freelancing, I have been contemplating of changing my email address from time to time. but the migration I needed to do, re printing of name card, my contacts from the old address, setup my phone, folder organisation, worry I will miss out on my client’s email when they send to my old email address… Pfffft…

So today, finally i took a step of faith and migrated my email to serene@serenesoh.com. I registered for google app for business and managed to setup everything. There were a few hiccups along the way, as I was trying to figure out where were my MX records so that my email will be redirected to gmail instead. So i managed to pull everything out and set everything up accordingly. I am happy to say that everything is working the way it is suppose to work! whoop whoop…

Now is just more of trying to remember to login to the right acct and also replying using my new email address. and I actually worry if my clients will be wandering who this new address is… But nah… If i don’t change now, I will never change it…

So now I need to print a new set of namecards… need to dig those files out… and get them printed next week…
