Looks good, try to have a good time doing it. Don't be stressed out because
you don't have original content, most of us use other newsletters articles.
Some of these articles have been moving around for years and with different
credits on the same pieces. If I was the author of the piece I would look
at it as a donation when I hand it in to the editor and just try to be
happy if it is still being printed 15 years later.
My only complaint would be people selling the articles, even if to profit
their group. If I were to sell articles from the NJBA newsletters I would
only use items I am sure we generated, unless I had authors permissions.
Getting reports from your own groups meets and original articles can be as
easy as squeezing blood from stones, do what you can, we all know the idea
of the newsletters is to get your local information out and to keep the
ideas flowing, that's why we share them!
