World of Blogging...

I set up this blog because I have a guy here in my office who is very good at scooping new information off the internet in the way of news articles and he religeously emails them out to all of us on pretty much a daily basis. It struck me though, that there must be a better way of doing this so that he can easily update his list of nuggets and keep us informed as well as keep a nice archive of all of this information for us to go back to at some point.
With tools that are out there now, this is much easier to do than ever before. I use the google toolbar because I like to right click and do things...(create shortcuts, delete things, etc)...If you aren't using some of these browser tools, you owe it to yourself to start because it makes this thing so easy.
With the google toolbar, you can right click some text on a page, or just the page itself and select sendto > blogger and a little window pops up and lets you edit your blog right there.
Next step is to get the info out, so I created a feedburner account so that my new content gets published automatically. With feedburner you can publicize your blog using email which basically creates a digest of all your content daily and sends it out.
