Getting Organized

Time flies as we work our way to the holidays this week. And 2006 is just around the corner. So... thinking ahead....
Do you need to get organized? What do you need to get organized? How do you want to organize? If you like working on the computer, here are some ways to get organized right here on-line.
Want to organize your books? Try Library Thing. It’s free for the first 200 books, and you’ll be able to see your collection right before your eyes.
Need to organize your bookmarks? Try Del.icio.us. Del.icio.us uses social bookmarking, (see the site for information about that). Using Del.icio.us means that you will have access to your bookmarks from any computer—be it school, home, or work. This is a real plus for those who use different computers in the course of the day and can’t remember what is bookmarked where. Also, you can share your bookmarks with others very easily.
Is it photos that you need to organize? Do you want to share your photos with others? Try Flickr.
What about your life? Can you use your computer to organize your life? Maybe…. Try Airset or Voo2do. They are both free. If anybody has other websites of this nature to suggest please e-mail me, and I will add them to the list.
