But are any of these new services useful to the attorney or blawgger?
The answer, in a word: sure.
But the problem, to me at least, is finding the time to try these new services out. There are just so many of them! So, in this post, I’d like to highlight a few 2.0-ish services that may be useful to this blog’s readers. If you’ve got others, please feel free to add them in the comments section.
Bloglines. I’ve been using bloglines as my RSS reader since the day I’ve heard about it. You sign up for an account, add your favorite RSS feed addresses, and you’re done. Exactly what a “Web 2.0″ service should do: simplify the complicated and be reliable.
Basecamp. This is a great “project collaboration” tool that allows you to assign “to dos”, post messages, schedule meetings, share files and track time.
LinkedIn. LinkedIn is basically an online rolodex of connections. I can’t say I’ve used it much, but I do like the idea.
Connecting With Entrepreneurs:
BuildV1. Still in its infancy, BuildV1 is an interesting idea: Entrpreneurs ask for help from advisors, service providers, etc through the web.
Blog Message Board:
BlogString- This is a very shameless plug. BlogString.com is something I’ve been working on for some time now, but it’s going to be at least four more months before the “service” is launched.
Until then, I’ve put up a message board with one simple premise: I haven’t seen a forum dedicated to blogging issues. So if you’ve got a blog and can’t get something working, want advice on anything blogging related, or just want to meet fellow bloggers, the BlogString board is the place for you. Again, this is VERY new. If you’re interested, sign up for an account here.
