Think of Yougler, not as a mail forward linked to an email address but as an email address linked to a mail forward, an email forward that is yours to use anywhere. Yougler is designed to get feedback from content posted on other people's web sites.

Yougler has developed a unique way for users to get messages from their Web 2.0 content.
Yougler, like a traditional email forward, forwards a message without exposing the email address but it is much more. Unlike a traditional email forward, Yougler is not limited to a single line of communication from a web site to a web site owner. Says Yougler's creator Pete Wingard, "Think of Yougler, not as a mail forward linked to an email address but as an email address linked to a mail forward, an email forward that is yours to use anywhere. Yougler is designed to get feedback from content posted on other people's web sites." Mr. Wingard calls this new type of email forward an Email Linked Forward or ELF to help differentiate Yougler from the traditional mail forward.
To make such a versatile forward, Yougler creates a mail-form page targeted to a user's email address. Since it is a web page, it has a specific link or URL. To use Yougler simply use the ELF link instead of an email address with your content. The mail-form then forwards any messages to the hidden email address.
Yougler also takes the Email Linked Forward one step further. Yougler allows users to build profile web pages around the ELF. Currently there is a Blogging Profile and an SEO profile but others will come later.
The Blogging profile lets bloggers embed ELF links in their posts or comments to give readers a quick way to contact them. This saves the blog owner from having to build a traditional email forward page into their site, a somewhat technical task. The blogging profile not only allows readers to contact them but also gives readers a "profile" about the author.
Yougler is a solution for blogs that have multiple authors too. Each of the blog's writers can have their own "contact me" ELF link. And writers with multiple blogs can link to their other blogs in their profile web pages giving readers an easy way to discover them.
The SEO profile is an ELF that is also search engine optimized. This web page profile allows people to find each other by simply searching a name and locale. Since it is already an email forward, they can then contact one other. The benefit of this is not having to keep trach of one another's email addresses, even if it is a long time between contacts.
Yougler also allows multiple profiles. Users with content on many different social networking sites can create a web page profile specific to each one. All the different profile messages can then be forwarded to the same email address, making it much easier to network on the Internet.
Because the Yougler Email Linked Forward is a link to a web page it can be used anywhere that accepts content from Internet users, which is the very definition of a Web 2.0 site. Using Yougler will allow Web 2.0ers to consolidate all of their communications into a single email account, saving them time and effort while protecting them form spam.
Yougler is currently free and only takes a couple minutes to set up. Users can personalize their profiles with pictures, links, and content about themselves. Users can also add Twitter badges to their profiles. Yougler profile links are also easy to remember, they are simply yougler.com/YOURUSERNAME.
