A look back...

As we approach the four-month anniversary of launching this blog, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of our favorite posts from the past four months, especially for those who haven't been around since the beginning.

But, first, a huge thank you to all of you! Transcription Talk now has close to 100 subscribers who read our posts on a daily basis, and we are excited about what the future holds as we continue to grow (including some very exciting projects already in the works!).

To start off, if you're new and wondering who we are, we started off with an introduction of ourselves back when we launched.

Since then, we try to contribute weekly to a number of series, including Getting Started and Text Expander Lists (as well as tips for using text expanders).

We devoted a whole week to financial earnings calls (which got us so excited about them that we've started doing them again ourselves!), and we're looking forward to a week on medical transcription as well.

Our goal continues to be to share grammar rules and tips in an easy-to-understand format and with lots of real-life examples, about everything from semicolons to hyphens and apostrophes to homonyms. As part of this goal, we share grammar-in-action (as well as research-in-action and text expanders-in-action) posts regularly as well.

Our software tutorials range from working with audio to working with video and exploring some of Microsoft Word's features and tricks.

We've also included a few tips on getting the most out of this blog.

Finally, as three work-at-home moms ourselves, we've shared our tips and struggles with you as we try to figure out how to balance it all.

This coming month, we'll be sharing more productivity tips, as always, as well as launching a series on the tax implications of being self-employed. We've committed to blogging daily until we run out of things to blog about, and we're confident that there's still much, much more to cover.

Do you have a favorite post or series from the past four months? Anything you'd like to see more of in the future?
