    Red face Equivalent words / phrases for "By The Way"'


    In typical e-mail conversations with friends, I use the abbreviation, BTW, i.e., "By The Way", when drawing attention to a new topic. I am looking at using newer words / phrases, instead of "by the way".

    Inputs on equivalent words / phrases will be helpful.

    On another note...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
