- Jan 15, 2014Scott,
Welcome to the group. It looks like you got a good start on it. It is fine
to use articles from other newsletters as long as you give credit to the
As far as getting help from your guild members you need to keep your eyes
open and when you see someone make something you like don't be afraid to ask
them for an article on it. Sometimes the best you can get is some
progression pictures and stock sizes and you have to flesh it out. The BAM
members are good to me and I have 3 or 4 guys that contribute on a regular
basis, but it wasn't always that way, I had to coax the first couple
articles out of them, the more they do it the more they like to help. If I
can't make it to a meeting or a hammer-in, I ask for a volunteer to cover it
for me. Sometimes all I get are pictures, but I can write an article if
there are enough pictures. The previous editors are usually eager to help,
they are just happy that they don't have to do the whole newsletter.
Be willing to do it all and be happy when you get help.

New Editor [1 Attachment]
My name is Scott Hill and I am the new editor for The Tidewater
Blacksmith's Guild. I am new to Yahoo groups and am caught in a very steep
learning curve. This email is both an introduction and a test for me. I
hope it all works out.
I think, I have attached the September Newsletter (another test). I am
new to the editor position and welcome any and all suggestions for
improvement. It has been a while since we have published a newsletter and I
am having a hard time with getting the membership to send in material so
most of what you see in this issue is on the fly from me. The January issue
is waiting for the TBG president to approve and I will send that out. It
has a bit more from our membership but I also included a page from the BAM
newsletter that I hope I used appropriately per the rules and gave credit
for. If not please let me know and I will fix it.
I am looking forward to this adventure and working with all of you on this
and again any and all suggestions are appreciated.
