Printing is Starting

Finally, production of the brochures is starting.  I believe the format – actually two formats – will be both informative and attractive.  The first two in final form are

  1. Your Attorney
  2. Why These Brochures

Several others are in the last stages to be published within days.  Again, finally….


Change in Emphasis – Probate Courts Helping People

As I continued working on the “information resource” emphasis of the web site, I remained uncomfortable with just the conveyance of information.  Laudable as such a goal is, and as public spirited as it may be, the essence of the Probate Court or Probate Process is not captured in that approach alone.

I have changed the emphasis.

Up top and out front on the web site construction are now the historic functions of the Probate Court and its predecessors – helping people.

More delay, but it is worth it.

Progress Has Been Even Slower Recently! But….

We have made some great unreported progress with regard to the brochures, and there will be some printing shortly.  The publication of this project on paper and on the web has been slowed even further by Council of Probate Court Judges of Georgia work – not to mention those recent 23 days in the Mediterranean which ended September 10.  I am encouraged by today’s review of the possibilities, and expect there to be some quality progress in the weeks ahead.

Brochures Coming Together

The publication of the brochures to be distributed at the Probate Court Office has been slowed because of continued efforts on the designs.  The “stock” templates which were available just did not seem to be appropriate, even when modified, because the areas in which information could be displayed were too small. The artwork and glitz consumed too much of the printed pages.  Finally, I have settled on a tri-fold which I designed myself, and the production can begin in earnest.

This is important for purposes of this blog and the developing web site because the brochure publications will lead to the content within this blog and on the web site in development.

The Story of An Information Effort

In the last few days, I have increased my effort to begin publication of educational and informative materials in several forms – a project which was conceived a few years ago, but which was started in mid-summer.  Equipment, software, network infrastructure, and other assets were collected to prosecute this effort.

As the effort increases in the weeks ahead, I am going to chronicle the progress on this blog so that the information intended for the use of my Forsyth County constituents will become available sooner.

That is a psychological move for myself, also, because the project does not seem so daunting if I am able to proceed in bits and pieces, rather that completion of the entire new web site with all of the intended materials.  I will probably include the materials here as they are incorporated into the web site, print materials, etc., rather than wait for the web site to be completely finished and made public.
