I find it really hard to keep up with all the different forms communications that take place on the Web.
Today I replied to/processed/deleted over 600 emails! And that was just the build up from one of my Email accounts for 2 weeks. I check emails daily and delete all social networking notifications immediately, but the emails still build up.

I have really been paying attention to all the time that goes into following up with communications.
That's checking emails, responding to inquiries, checking blog, flickr, and Facebook fan page comments. I often communicate with shops and galleries via email as well. I participate in Yahoo Groups, Web Forums, Teams ect.....
And then outside of business there are always volunteer group and family emails.
