Tools for Organizing Online

Juggling tasks in the online world can be a challenge. Whether it's blog posts, social media, or other freelance gigs, staying organized is the difference between having success and always feeling behind. As a part-time blogger, full-time juggler, I have learned a bit about this process. Here are 2 of my favorite tools for organizing online.

1) Feedly

A reader that works with my life! I love using Feedly as my blog reader because it is able to organize posts in the ways that I need it to. It shows me a gorgeous Pinterest like selection of my daily must-reads while chronicling the others. It gives me access to social media feeds and shares non-subscribed blogs that cover the topics I am interested in. Without Feedly's design friendly platform I'd be lost trying to keep up online.

2) Evernote

Evernote functions as my internet brain. I would be incredibly forgetful without it! Evernote is a private organization system that allows me to chronicle everything I am planning online. I make seasonal folders for blog posts, folders for links I want to share, folders for events I am planning, and folders for just about everything I do. I love that these folders are all private, so I can keep my best ideas a surprise. I use the toolbar button to quickly add items I find online, and write notes to myself so can I remember why I was saving each link.

Find out the other 6 tools that I love + more tips and tricks for staying organized online in The Organized Blogger Class this Thursday at 3pm EST.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
