Welcome to the Mailing Products Blog

Welcome to my first blog post!

First off, a definition of this form of communication:

A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called “blogging”. Individual articles on a blog are called “blog posts,” “posts” or “entries”. A person who posts these entries is called a “blogger”. A blog comprises text, hypertext, images, and links (to other web pages and to video, audio and other files). Blogs use a conversational style of documentation.

I have maintained a personal blog for some time now, but I am just starting to see the vast potential for communicating with our Mailing Products users in an interpersonal manner such as a blog affords. You will have the ability to subscribe to receive my blog posts on a regular basis, and you will also be able to add your own comments. This blog will give me an opportunity to keep you up to date on USPS news, industry trends, and tips on how to use your Mailing Products software in ways you might not have considered.

I look forward to posting here on a regular basis. As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Best wishes,
Lisa Bowes
