30 Days With...Google Docs

Each month I will take on a new technology or tool for 30 days. I am starting "30 Days With..." by tackling Google Docs.

You can do anything for 30 days, right? I mean, it's only one month. How hard can it be? Well, I'm going to find out because today is the day I start my new project: "30 Days With..."

Each month I will embrace a new platform or technology--immersing myself in it completely and abandoning the tools and software I am familiar with. I will blog each day to share my experience. document the good and the bad (at least in my opinion), and I will write up how-to's and tips to help guide those who might follow my path someday.

To kick off the ambitious new project, I am giving up my security blanket--Microsoft Office. I have used every version of Microsoft Office since the mid 90's, and I make my living in Microsoft Word. But, for the month of May I will abandon Microsoft Office and spend 30 Days With...Google Docs.

So, check back each day to follow my trials and tribulations with Google Docs. I will do my best to view Google Docs objectively, but I readily admit that more than a decade of using Microsoft Office will make it hard not to judge.

If you have questions about Google Docs that you'd like answers to ,let me know and I will see if I can dig up the answers. If you have any warnings I should know about, or any guidance on how I can make the most of Google Docs, feel free to email me and give me your tips and advice.

So, here we go. Let the 30 days begin...
