  1. Nice feature. Thanks.
    One Idea: To send a post to someone for feedback, maybe allow us to send it to another wordpress user’s user name. (If we don’t know their email address, perhaps we could send it by entering their user name). Although, I do see a possible down side to that: ppeople might get spammy unsolicited requests to review a post.

    1. Filmdrift: yes. We talked about making it easier to find people, or even to reuse email addresses you’ve used before. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You listened to those of us who asked for way to copy some of our posts. I do a Be With Beauty Exercise almost every day and want to to a Think About What Matters each day. Both are emotional fitness exercises and now instead of spending time re-writing the basic format, I can use the previous post as a template. Can’t believe some have complained about that. You can’t please everyone all the time, but you pleased me.

  3. Very VERY nice features!!! Normally I just copy/paste document in Google Docs and invite several people to the document but this is much easier.

    But just a question, why did I receive this email 3 times?

    1. Three is our lucky number.

      Sorry about the triple post – something very unusual happened in the publishing process for the announcement, and we’ve fixed it so it’s extremely unlikely to ever happen again.
