Why I Use… (6 of 6)

I hope that you have enjoyed this series. I am always looking for new tools that can allow me to have more time to spend with people and make connections deeper and more effective. Just last week, I signed up for two new services which I am trying out.

  • Remember the Milk – Is, according to their website, “the best way to manage your tasks.” I have transferred all my tasks from Outlook to RTM and have enjoyed the additional functionality, web 2.0ness and flexibility to access on various platforms. I am considering purchasing an iPhone as a Happy 2009 and look forward to integration on this platform.
  • Evernote – Is, according to their website, “Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.” I am not yet as convinced of the utility of Evernote, but have begun to save items there.

What are tools that you use to make your job easier or more efficient?

Why I use WordPress.com (1 of 6)

I use WordPress.com to blog because it is free and it is open source. It is also the softward that is used to run all the blogs hosted at cor.org. I switched from Blogger a couple years ago because I wanted a little more of an independent feel and appreciated that WordPress can be used as a simple content management system. In other words, it could be used by any church to start a free, simple and well designed website. I continue to appreciate the innovation from WordPress and steady new updates.
