  1. Ah oh! My answer to the first question is a definite no! I have a holiday to do list a mile long! I’ll look forward to learning more about the activities and tips you share. It’s funny, but this week I discovered (for the first time) that Word has advanced editing capabilities; things like highlighting passive voice, etc. I was so excited I went directly to my settings. Alas, Office 2016 doesn’t have this capability, so I had to downgrade to Office 2013! 😀

  2. Updating my online presence is an ongoing activity for me. It was just three weeks ago that I changed passwords at the social media sites, and that will happen again in February. Still, I’m pretty sure I’m missing some steps and tasks. I’ll be checking my inbox for your next posts. 🙂

    • Some days the top three are “Back up your work!” I read several posts from blog friends about crashed computers and lost data last week. My techie problem is Outlook crashing all the time. That’s a new one. I’ve used it for over a decade with never a problem. Now–good grief! Luckily, I can get the email online.
