  • About the Abi's work update (as you asked in one of the work update videos), Although she had quite a large backlog of transcriptions while she was away for Christmas and New year holidays, but she has covered all that backlog very quickly.

    Sometimes she doesn't work continuously for 2-3 days, but I have to admire that she clears that work gap very quickly. Infact there are many transcripts that are pending for my review.

    At the moment I have forwarded her 6 more files (which you recently shared), there are also some other case study transcriptions lying in the dropbox which I have never shared with her and held them for backup (If you are not available to record more transcription files, I will send these files to ABI for transcription)  

Transcription Support:
  • Transcribed and submitted following forum posts:
  • Added another 9 transcribed emails to aweber email list
  • Submitted another two transcribed blog posts
  • Submitted another transcribed bloglet to virtual assistant's blog.
  • Thanks for proofreading the submission within my previous work update, I have published that C2 post.

  • About your email, in which you asked me to check a particular email for duplicate, I have checked the entire Aweber mailing list and didn't find any duplicate entry. On Friday I have placed two new emails between 10-15 (as you instructed in transcriptions), so I think that is why you are getting an email two times.
Administrative Support:
  • Added 'nofollow' tag to all ebook links, images and buttons.
