Before when I stepped into technology blogging, I was a business blogger. I used to offer direct “Contact Me” on my blog with my email address and my personal phone number. When I started growing on the web, I was getting around 200-250 spam emails dumped into my Inbox each day! It was really frustrating those days finding my important emails but finally I came across the perfect solution. They weren’t the Disposable Email Services but some easy tricks like converting your address text into image or typing the email address in this format: myname [at] gmail [dot] com. These ideas where pretty cool and worked for me!
It was terrible those days, what I did was; I changed my official contact details and made a list of my clients and updated them with all with the current contact details, finally I was done! But what I learned from this was, that there are thousands of Spam Bots crawling the web each n’ every day for stealing the open email addresses and then start bombarding them with unwanted offers and all the crap which we all hate!!
Well, for avoiding this, one of the best things which you can do is to make use of the Disposable or Temporary Email Services, they are very useful and the best part is, after doing your tasks you can easily trash them or they’ll expire after sometime!
