I have been tasked with organizing our department's Sharepoint site
(since it will mostly be used for document storage and management, and,
as tech writer, I'm all about documents). I'm new to Sharepoint and was
wondering if any of you have experience in the early stages of
organizing such a site-developing libraries, deciding what will go on
the main page and what won't, etc.

I think I have a handle (or at least a hint on one) on how to do the
basic tasks in Sharepoint; I'm floundering, however, on how to start
organizing the site.

I don't have any specific questions to post here because I'm not sure
what to ask yet. I guess I'd just like to hear from others who have been
in this position, and to find out anything you learned the hard way (or
otherwise) that might help me go about this task.
