  • Kaelyn Bullock (Seattle, Washington) - New Google Sites not showing up … mostly tablets, also on some MacBooks (via SpeakPipe)
  • Jennifer Liebhaber (Scottsdale, Arizona) - I really appreciate all the little tips and tricks I get each time I listen. I am writing because I am trying to find out the best way to do a "mail merge" in a Google Doc when the data I need is in Google Sheets.
  • Denise Wolfe (Nebraska) - Just wanted to take a moment and THANK YOU for your podcast!
