I'm looking for a tool to save time by posting my latest articles from my blog feed to all my social networks. Have used Hootsuite in the past, but they only support a few social profiles?

What is everyone else using? I would prefer one that could take my RSS feed from my WordPress blog and autopost. Thanks

Good point about delivery scheduling Raymond. But dlvr seems to only support 9 different social medias compared to a lot more for onlywire

Really enjoy your videos. I notice that someone did a video where they hafted a flint knife blade you have made. Do you have a web site, Etsy or eBay store where you sell flint knife blades.

I notice you make Native American flutes as well. My wife and I both play Native American flutes, so you have things that match multiple hobbies of mine. :)

Was frustrated with my last Join.me meeting. Showing sample YouTube videos was really jerky and no way to have the sound from the video (ended up holding my speaker up to my microphone).

Did use GoToMeeting some years ago. Any other options? What are you all using?

What are your top 3 productivity tools you use everyday?

For me it would be my:

Task Management System - Teamwork.com
Calendar System - Google Calendar
Notes System - OneNote

Honorable message would be my Text Expander Software - Phrase Express. 

What about yours?

+utkarsh apoorva +Garland Coulson  Yes, certainly the original choices (and the fact that this post is in the Productivity community) influenced my own.  And at the time, I thought purely in terms of mobile apps (because I tend to use ToDoist mostly on my phone, so I associate mobile with "Productivity"), but I have other tools which I use too on both mobile and desktop.

On both platforms I use (different) multiple clipboard apps (Clipper+ with Sync on Android, and Arsclip on Windows.  I couldn't live without either.

On Windows, I make heavy use of AutoHotKey for certain work tasks which would be interminably tedious without my scripts. 

So, in the strictest sense of productivity (i.e. tools that enable me to get stuff done), I would have to claim those in addition to Evernote and ToDoist (plus Calendar for planning, co-ordinating and communicating events with others).

There are probably others that just chug along in the background that I don't even think about.  Somebody once asked for the top 10 mobile apps that I couldn't do without.  ISTR my "must have" list included over 20. 

Honestly, if I had to pick just 3, I'm not sure what I would drop.

Where are all the OneNote users?

Left Evernote for OneNote some months ago as I didn't like the fact that they pulled a feature I was using without consultation and their development process was very opaque and they were going in directions I didn't like.

Overall, I do prefer OneNote, but I did really love the Evernote Forum. It was packed full of people discussing how to use it with lots of new posts every day.

While I was glad to find this community, there are a lot less active people here. I see there are 494 members but only a few post regularly and then often just post links instead of asking questions or exploring.

Is OneNote just not used that much?

Yes, the web clipping is definitely not as good as Evernote. But the formatting is better, the tab and page system is better and I don't have to worry about features being pulled without notice or the developers going off in weird directions.

OneNote as a Grocery List

I use OneNote as my grocery list. I just jot whatever I need on it either on my computer or smart phone and use the checklist format.

While in the grocery store, my grocery list is my default note on my smart phone and I just tick off the items as I buy them.

I put them into categories that are similar to the grocery store such as Frozen, Product, Snacks, etc.

I also have some separate store categories for products I can only get in a certain store.

Anyone else grocery shopping this way? The reason I started is that I would often forget the grocery list when I went out. But I always remember my smart phone....

Looking for WordPress podcasting plugin. I have several videos I have made consisting of Powerpoint presentations with voiceovers. I thought I should take the voiceovers and also publish them on my WordPress site as podcasts.

What podcasting plugins to you recommend? If possible, I would like my feed to also automatically be added to iTunes and SoundCloud. I will consider paid plugins/services.

Also, it is possible to see stats from multiple sites like iTunes and SoundCloud  in one interface?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I will like start with the free Blubrry account and upgrade later when I want more stats. I also have a client I am setting this up for, so I can use what I learn for myself to help them.

An old favourite that I missed when I moved to Nanaimo. Just visited again and it did not disappoint. Great lunch, large portions and excellent service. The only problem is I had no room for the fantastic desserts so my wife and I plan to get back for a dessert night out before we have to go back home,
