So many of you were very kind during the last two weeks of 2020, with your calls, visits, letters, cards, etc. Now that I am almost finished with the first week of my retirement, which also happens to be the first week of Chemo and radiation, I realize anew how much that kindness means. Some of my time will be spent writing to you to express my gratitude. Also, I hope to soon start publishing articles again relating to the subject matter of this website. Thank you.
As I begin my retirement with radiation, chemotherapy, and later surgery, I am most grateful for your prayers – and the thoughts which you have conveyed to me. This is the only battle to fight right now. Thank you so much for helping me.
I now have content scattered about in at least three servers. Material is going into each, and I cannot make up my mind which approach to use. I have just about decided to ditch the Dreamweaver authored site – but darn, it looks so much better! I need to think a bit more. The WordPress approaches are so much more simple – and the top tier Microsoft public site is easy to update and post, but not nearly as flexible. More thought, more thought.
I have posted a couple of quick “wills” pages under the expanded menu above; however, I am concerned that this format is not getting enough condensed information to folks right up front and continuously thereafter. I don’t want them to have to work for it. I have been looking at a magazine or news format and the presentations in such formats are much more dense. I am going to consider that a bit more. Also, time constraints are dictating that I will probably do audio first, then convert those presentations to more expanded video.
Today I ran numerous tests on images, content, menus, etc.. It appears that WordPress will be the emphasis on the InMotion server for now. The others will take a back seat for later evaluation.
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
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.
