Week of October 22, 2001:
Automation & Polite Present

Why didn't I think of this before? I did. I wanted automation on my site, but wanted to learn how to do it myself. Finally, I faced the fact that I would do better to hire someone to do my automation, while I stayed focused on editing and marketing and general Web development.

This is where the Bontrager Connection. I've known Will and Mari Bontrager for several years, via the Internet, and trust and respect them and their work. In fact, they've hired me to consult with them on their site copy and concepts. Who better?

We've started with getting rid of all the e-mail addresses on my site by using contact forms. How does this help? No more gathering my information for future e-mail spam. I'm a little behind the times in doing this, but that's Judy!

We're going to have a "recommend the site" form set up, autoresponders, and possibly a survey. I'm excited, because the more I carefully automate my business, the more time I have for the things that matter most.


Polite Present: Manual of Good Manners, 1831

Excerpts from a charming, serious 2 1/2" x 4" book published in 1831 by Munroe & Francis.


Spit not upon the fire, nor sit too wide with your knees at it.

Turn not your back to any, but place yourself so that none may be behind you.

Read not letters, books, or other writing of any one, unless the owner invite or desire you. Come not near when another reads a letter or any other paper.
