In another era, I would be an Excel jockey; instead, my true love is Google Sheets.
As Scott Fennell and I have continued to hammer away at working on the new LexBlog.com, my eyes have gone red staring at more spreadsheets in Google Sheets than I’d care to admit. I’m using these spreadsheets for two reasons:
- Validate that the shape of the data on our test aggregation site (i.e., the future LexBlog.com) matches the shape of the data on each test source site (i.e., all of the client sites that we manage)
- Derive some understanding of the organization of things on the current LexBlog.com
The reason I’m using Google Sheets for all this is simple: It’s fast, easy, and requires very little from me to maintain the approach.
