Dan Pinnington, Practice Management Advisor and practice PRO Director for Lawyers' Professional Indemnity Company in Toronto, Canada, recently linked to a list of resources designed to make blogging easier. If you are a blogger or interested in improving the quality of your blog, take a few minutes to read “20+ Essential Tools and Applications for Bloggers.” The list includes resources to help you to organize your thoughts, develop interesting content, find keywords for search engine optimization, share your content, and publish and edit your posts.
Even if you don’t blog, the list includes information regarding how to create documents using a web-based word processor, how to save documents, tasks, and reminders that can be accessed from your computer or mobile device, and how to record notes and ideas using digital dictation.*
* If you are going to use one of these applications (like Dropbox) for secure client data, be sure you understand who holds the encryption key. See also the March 11, 2011 SBM PMRC Tip of the Week.
