Posterous: Can blogging get any easier?
Mar 16th, 2009 by Beth

This free tool falls smack dab into the “If Only I Had Known” category. It’s an instant “Beth Favorite.”

Posterous is the easiest blogging tool I’ve ever seen. You simply email, and they post what you’ve emailed. You can then claim a site of your own and keep posting to it.

It even adds your pictures, videos, documents… anything you attach to the email.

I also hooked it up to post to my Twitter account, and I can make it work with WordPress as well.

I’m feeling a little dizzy with joy right now.

Posterous – The place to post everything. Just email us. Dead simple blog by email..

Docstoc: Free legal forms and business templates
Feb 24th, 2009 by Beth

In today’s social media world, we’ve all come to rely on the kindness of strangers. That’s why docstoc works… people share copies of legal, business, tech and educational documents with the community, allowing other community members to download them for free.

I did a quick search for an example business plan, and docstoc came back with thousands of documents. You can sort by ranking or popularity and really take a shortcut to creating your own documents.

You can also upload and sync your own documents, keeping them private if you like, for an online storage backup. – free legal forms and business templates.

Twitter: Microblogging and social networking
Jan 13th, 2009 by Beth

twitterIt’s time, my friends. You need to get involved with social media to grow your business. Twitter brings together millions of users who write brief (I mean really brief) updates, answers to the simple question: What are you doing right now?

Twitter takes some getting used to. The first few tweets you receive may say things like, “I just ate a bologna sandwich” and “I really need to pee but I’m stuck in this meeting.” But after a while, you’ll catch on. You need to give to get back. People share breaking news, business-building tips, helpful blog resources and new friends and contacts.

Start by following me. :)
