Mastered it.

Calamity's Corner worked better this month since I converted the newsletter to PDF. Takes less space in email. I think I've mastered it, now. It's lovely to receive such interesting contributions too. I can't wait to see what pets will be forthcoming.
The next step is to figure out how to make a video - just a little one. For myspace. Not for emailing.

Newsletter Success.

Thanks to some advice from family members I was able to send out my first newsletter. I used the Bcc feature in outlook to hide the list of names. The Bcc was hard to find and I did have to add each address seperately. There has to be an easier way! Also I must get software to convert Word to PDF so that the format isn't corrupted for non Word readers. The May issue is nearly ready.
I'm happy now that it worked this time, but will be happier when I can discover how others send their newsletters in large numbers. So far the companies I've asked haven't responded.
