Essential Tools: Successful Blog StyleBy
Yesterday I had a great conversation with Liz at Successful Blog while she was interviewing me for her Blogger A Day (B.A.D.) series. As we neared the end of our discussion, I asked her to give me her top three tools that she must have in her day-to-day operations for blogging and business. Here are her picks:
1. Wireless Mouse – A wireless mouse is the single most important tool for Liz. She figures that anyone without one, especially Mac users, are just crazy.
2. Graphics Program – It doesn’t have to to be fancy or expensive, and often Paint will do. Liz likes to give her posts a personal touch using some fancy fonts and cool badges, and therefore she needs to be able to create and edit images.
3. Skype – Without Skype , think of the phone bills!!! Skype allows Liz to talk with Bloggers all over the world without spending a dime. We were talking about our vision for the next generation of Skype – one that incorporates the visual aspect of communication similar to SlideShare or GoToMeeting .
What’s in your toolbox? I am thinking about making this a regular feature on this site and would love to get your input.
