Nother kettle of fish

I’ve been trying out Word for size. Trying to grok styles, features, what I have to do with the file I’ll receive tomorrow.

Thinking about the Beta. First, brainstorming on paper. Variety of sheets in the Lab, spread all over the countertop.

Realized that strategically, the online beta is the tightest constraint. I need the set-up to capture names and manage them. Dorked around with contact forms on Word Press for way too long. Robin suggests Mail Chimp. I’m joining now.

1. Always better to ask in cases like this. 2. Watch out for wasting time on dry holes.

As often happens, I found that I’d only started a more involved process. Collecting names is one thing. Managing them is another.
