It’s been almost a month since my last post. I guess I can say welcome back (to me). So what exactly has been going on since that time? A number of things.
Research, reading and well some writing – just no blog postings. Last month, I prepared my article for the newsletter, TLOMA Today, but wasn’t particularly happy with it so I didn’t submit it. You just know when it can be better. Researching and reading materials for a book and ebook I plan on writing and reviewing other topics I’m interested in.
Collaboration – there’s that buzz word. Anyway, it appears the articles I write for TLOMA Today have caught the eye of someone. As a reminder, TLOMA Today is a newsletter of The Law Office Management Association. These articles include the following:
- Work With A Virtual Assistant (Dec. 2009, p. 13);
- Start the New Year Off On the Right Track: Go Paperless (Jan. 2010, p. 3);
- Getting with 2007 Microsoft Office: The Ribbon – A Glimpse at Word 2007 (Mar. 2010, p. 8); and
- Knowledge Management: Collaborative Work Systems (April 2010, p. 13).
Late one night on April 27 (my last post date), I received an e-mail from the president of a Canadian company who has been following my articles as well as reading the information on my Knowledge Management: Collaborative Work Systems website. Anyway, in a nutshell, the company develops applications – information and knowledge management solutions (i.e., portals for collaboration) – for Microsoft SharePoint for legal and non-legal environments. He was interested in making a connection, and, in fact, we had a web meeting earlier this month.
Participating in Phone Meetings – for the development of the PMI Legal Project Management CoP and reviewing and writing some materials for the business plan.
Volunteering – working on the web pages of the website – Woman 2 Woman Community Services, Inc. – making them consistent across the site, including changing the navigation links, removing outdated and erroneous content; editing content and updating content.
Updating my website – Virtual Legal Corner.
Job Searching, sending out cover letter and resumes – yes, I’m still doing that.
Is God trying to tell me something?
