PapaJohn's Newsletters and Articles...

193 weekly newsletters were published from May 2004 to March 2008, and other articles written for Bright Hub from 2007 to 2011. This page is a table of contents with links to all of them.

In mid-December 2011 Bright Hub closed their 'shared success' program and my Hubfolio items moved here.

With the end of Microsoft's support for the newest version 2012 I'll start a new series of newsletters.

As newsletters and articles were published, links were added to the hundreds of pages of this website, but without a table of contents or index.

Newsletters and Bright Hub Articles

For ease of finding one, or reading all of them about a particular item, I'll sort them by topic. Hopefully, it'll save you having to use the Google search feature.
