The results of yesterday’s Twitter poll came in this morning. It would appear that folks are overwhelmingly in favor of more Going Paperless posts, and that makes me happy. The poll also got more responses than I imagined, and that makes me happy as well.
I need some time to figure out the best way to do these posts. Part of the reason I stopped the initial series was because I felt like I was beginning to cover ground I’d covered before. Part of the reason was that I felt like I’d run out of use cases to write about. I’d like to have a fairly good list of topics to cover in order to get started. I’ve got 2 right now, but I’d like to get a few more. If you have ideas or suggestions for topics you’d like to see me cover, drop them in the comments.
Also, there is some ground that I will need to cover again for two reasons:
- The way I do things may have changes (been refined with practice, I like to think.)
- Newcomers to the series of posts might need a more clear introduction.
So I have some things to consider, among them:
- What to write about
- How frequently to write
- How much updating of old territory is necessary
Once I figure these things out, I’ll set a schedule and announce the new series so that folks can follow along, and participate. One thing that made the old series great was good participation and suggestions from readers. Everyone works a little bit differently and how I do things may not be how you do things, but we can learn from each other’s ideas.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll yesterday. Stay tuned for more on when you can expect to see the new series kick off.
Perhaps you could treat your posts like you are writing a book. Chapterize it and Indexize it and, then post one chapter each week. Later, put the “book” on Amazon as a “paperbook.” That way it becomes a reference book nearby while working on becoming paperless.
