    This is really helpful, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I was just asking some fellow bloggers what they do when their normal research tactics come up short. This is going to be something I use daily I’m sure of it. How do you stay so informed on all these great tools?

      Hello Chris,

      I’m really happy you found the article useful. But you know, that’s my job. As a journalist and blogger, I have to stay in the know about those tools. And as a social media coach, I have to be able to pull out the info in a heartbeat to serve my clients in the best possible way. How do I do it? I’m just subscribed to a huge number of blogs, online publications, Scoop.it magazines, and Google+ Circles. It means at least 1,500 emails in my inbox every day.

      I have a long list of tools to review right now. I bookmark at least 10 every day for later perusal.

      As a curator, I also only select the tools that I know will be useful to my audience. Yesterday, for example, I unchecked five apps alone!

      Thank you for stopping by.
