Hi Deb ~ I found a journal that I kept in 1978 when I still knew my Gregg Shorthand. Forty years later I am having a hard time translating what I wrote in two short entries. Might you be able to help if I sent a pic of the 2 pages? I have been pouring over everything I can find on line to help me come up with the words...without much success. Would there be a way to private message you the entries if you would not mind looking at them? Thank you so very much.
Marie, I haven't used Gregg very much for a few months. My job changed and I used it a lot in my job then. My Gregg is really rusty. Maybe you could post a picture (might have to join) and someone can see if they can read it and help you.

Marie, I'm guessing from the date that you wrote in the Diamond Jubilee edition of Gregg shorthand. Some of us who subscribe to this site, including me, are fluent in that system. If your handwriting is reasonably good, your short forms are standard, and your phrasings are reasonable, one of us should be able to transcribe your pages.
I wouldn't recommend that this person go to standard social media like Twitter. This forum here or the one at gregg-shorthand.com are the best options. Also the moderators at shorthandshorthandshorthand.com and angelfishy.net might be able to suggest transcribers if this site and gregg-shorthand.com don't work out. It's at these places where you're most likely to find people capable of doing the transcription, and the sites are civil and respectful, without the "wild West" quality that infects most social media.
