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
- Your Attorney
- Why These Brochures
Several others are in the last stages to be published within days. Again, finally….
As I continued working on the “information resource” emphasis of the judgejordan.com 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.
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.
I have not been able to keep up with my proposed schedule because the Georgia Legislature is in session until the end of March. Because I am Legislative Chair of the Council of Probate Court Judges, I have had my hands full with myriad tasks. Just one more week and I can get back to the publication tasks.
I think I have finally determined how to upload the brochures. Here is the “Avoid Probate” brochure: avoid
I am going to test the first brochure which has been produced. It is on the subject of finding an attorney. Please click on the link to determine if this procedure will work. Here is the link: 130102_attorney
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.
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.
