It is officially 2020, and Pete Buttigieg didn’t take a single day of rest. Joe Biden has some resolution suggestions for me, and Bernie Sanders finally rambled in the body of his email instead of the subject.Continue reading “Day 226: 1/1/20”
Happy 2020! It’s a beautiful winter day here, with the sun shining and the birds raiding my bird feeder. I ended up staying up until 1:54 AM to catch up on all my emails. It was not the busiest email day of the year.
But it was close.Continue reading “Day 225: 12/31/19”
Happy New Year!
Story time: I did some study/work abroad in England while in/immediately after college, and I was in London for one of the New Years. My mother FaceTimed with me and we watched the London fireworks from my hostel window.
Then she went to bed. She had celebrated the New Year, why wait up until midnight?
It was so glorious that it has become our family tradition. Every December 31, at 7:00 PM EST, we send each other Happy New Years texts and pop open the bubbly grape juice. After a cup and maybe some chips or cheese, we tuck into bed at reasonable hours. So, when this post goes live, as far as my family is concerned, it’s basically 2020.
(I anticipate being up for another 5 hours trying to catch up on emails).Continue reading “Day 224: 12/30/19”
Quite a busy weekend, with even Marianne Williamson remembering that she’s running for President! Pete Buttigieg outstripped everyone on the email front, as always, and Joe Biden made me very uncomfortable.Continue reading “Days 222 and 223: 12/28/19-12/29/19”
Elizabeth Warren stole the show on Friday with her announcement that she is not raising nearly as much money as she needs to. She wasn’t the only one crying for money, though.Continue reading “Day 221: 12/27/19”
The day after Christmas is no longer a holiday and therefore fundraising is no longer off the table! With FEC deadlines looming, EVERYONE is in the giving (asking to be given to) spirit.Continue reading “Day 220: 12/26/19”
Christmas Day had fewer emails than Christmas Eve, but still more than I was expecting, given our only 15 candidates still in the race!Continue reading “Day 219: 12/25/19”
Christmas Eve isn’t exactly a holiday, but my email volume dipped nonetheless.
Pete Buttigieg did not get the memo.Continue reading “Day 218: 12/24/19”
Happy holidays, everyone! Today’s post is short, but it touches on fundraising tactics for several of the candidates in the race. Joe Biden, Michael Bennet, and Pete Buttigieg all demonstrated different ways to try to wrangle money out of us.Continue reading “Day 217: 12/23/19”
We had a debate this week, but the spike in the total volume chart is not nearly as extreme as it usually is. Fewer candidates are qualifying, and fewer candidates are hanging in the race. I think… I hesitate to say this in something that can be held against me… but I think the worst days of my inbox volume are behind me…Continue reading “Week 31: December 15-21”
