So, for professional practice I’ve decided to set up a new more professional email address, I personally don’t think my current email is too bad but it includes a number and is hotmail which is apparently frowned upon. I found this site (http://menwithpens.ca/email-address-losing-clients/) which talks about the importance of having a professional email to be taken seriously and some tips on what sort of email to have. According to the website article the best option for an email address is to have your website URL, this could be my portfolio website URL, the only problem with this would be if I decided to change my portfolio website I would have to change my email. The second best option is to have an email address from a well known business email provider with your full name as it looks professional, Gmail is apparently the best to use with AOL, Hotmail and Yahoo not recommended. As I’m not sure whether to use a portfolio website URL or a Gmail address as my main email I will leave it for now and come back to it.
New email is set up now: firstname.lastname@example.org
