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...

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
