Behind the Curtains of our Writings (Readers/Followers/Clients)

Recently we’ve had several back-of-the-hand (accidental – but very nice) compliments which we greatly appreciated …..

Multiple sources have asked if we ever sleep? Mostly due to the amount of content that we write … a Quarterly Newsletter, Newsletter Videos, Monthly Review Videos along with a Post, and most of all, three times a week (MWF @ 10:30 AM) here on our Blog….

A while back we posted “Why we do our Blogs” to a wonderful reception … so here is a peek behind the curtains!

How We Do Our Blog Postsimg_5440

The secret in our case, is one word – Dictation!

This blog post is literally being composed on a weekend walk with the dog, early in the morning, post Java enhanced brain, on a rainy day.

About 3/4 of our Posts here, almost all of our Reviews,  and our Newsletters Articles for that matter, are dictated.

There are hick-ups – as dictation can sometimes put the incorrect phonetically word, which is very easy to miss.

For those that are going to try this themselves – as mention above, this post is being dictated directly to WordPress – our blog platform, but here are a couple of tips on what platforms we have found receive dictation the best.

Microsoft Word is not very dictator friendly, one of the best dictator friendly applications are the notes section in your phone, be careful if you (or a linked family member) text sailor comments occasionally to your friends, your Iphone  will bring up sailor comments in your dictations – be sure to double check.

There is always final clean up that needs to be done, the current corrections on this post at this time are being done from the Laptop … with multiple different time reviews as the aforementioned phonetic mistakes are really darn hard to catch.

Again thanks for the ultimate comment; “Do we ever sleep?” That makes us feel good, we appreciate everyone taking the time to read our material as we really work hard, and give it a lot of thought which also helps us with clarity, and gives us living memoirs.

Hope You Enjoyed Behind the Curtains of Our Writings – Give it a try yourself!

Have a Great “Fun Writings” Day!

Email Address is the New Home Mailing Address – Why the Restrictions Associated with Changes!

In the good old days our physical home address was the most important item for delivery of mail and physical identity. Not sure if your mailbox is like many, but for the most part paper delivery is WAY down and expected that in the next few years many entities (Credit Card, Mortgage, Paychecks… any kind of monthly statement) will completely discontinue options for paper delivery …. this is a much greener approach, and will certainly help our environment – we know it may be uncomfortable for some, but likely inevitable!

Email address replaces Home Address – Our Collective Responsibilitiesicons-157872__480 email address

Given the above mentioned facts, with our email address now been our most likely contact … similar to our physical address in the good old days, new restrictions for our collective security are welcomed, needed, and expected.

It’s for our own collective safety that to change an email address on a delivery should be more secure!

In today’s more secure and safe environment for us to change an email address on your information we will now need to submit a signed document – ok … it’s a bit of a pain, and in the good old days when delivery was mostly to our physical address we could do it for you – but that was as they say … the good old days.

With 95% of our clients receiving all of their information completely electronically we feel like we are the norm, and accept the new responsibility but slightly more challenging changes to our electronic delivery.

Docusign Anyone ? More to come on this soon!

Just a heads up in advance,  when we change our email there will be additional documents for our collective security to make the change.

We will make it super easy, but there will be an extra step.

Sorry for the hassle but again certainly for our collective security!

Have a Great ” Email is New Home Address” Day!
