Pinterest is your pin board of your dreams, plans, and even your window to everything nice and beautiful – only online.
I accidentally learned about Pinterest early last year.
I was reading the blog of my mentor, Jomar Hilario, when I realized I reached the bottom part of his blog. I saw a “Follow me in Pinterest” icon there. Being the curious one, I clicked the icon. I was directed to Pinterest.
The rest is history.
I have a dream board in my room. Now, with Pinterest, my dream board is somehow extended online.
Pinterest, I think, is the home of everything beautiful images. And I’m happy I have a Pinterest account.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create a Pinterest account and spend time looking at everything beautiful.
Hooray for PicMonkey!
My brother is the all-knowing Photoshop man. He has done several Photoshop projects for me for the past few years, and I can say that he’s really an expert. Not only he works fast; the image he works on becomes more alive.
I tried working on a Photoshop project one time. I asked him to teach me and he did. I asked him many times for that one simple Photoshop procedure: how to create a JPEG file. I was glad to have done it; but it will take me another round of teaching sessions to familiarize myself again.
Good thing I learned about PicMonkey. It is for people like me who are not all-knowing in Photoshop (well, for now).
I know I will get the opportunity to learn and be a Photoshop expert. But for now, PicMonkey is going to save me.
Here’s a PicMonkey tutorial for you!
NutshellMail reports your social media sites’ newsfeed neatly and nicely – for you.
In a nutshell, NutshellMail will send you a summary of your social media news feeds without you opening all your accounts.
NutshellMail is very helpful for those who have so many social media accounts so you can keep up with them and for those who can no longer open their social media accounts due to work or other projects.
Here’s a step-a-step guide on how to have a NutshellMail.
I found this smiling owl amusing. I have never seen one before. I hope you will also have lots of smiles by using Hootsuite!
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+. These are the social media networks I am subscribe to. I know that like you, I have something in mind that I want posted to all social networks, but that meant opening many tabs, and copy-paste the status or post.
During my Social Media Manager on my last gig, I was able to use Hootsuite in scheduling posts for my client’s social media sites. It was very useful because I can schedule the posts in the social media sites days or even weeks before.
This is my comprehensive tutorial on how to use Hootsuite (I posted a tutorial on How to add Google+ Page stream and autoschedule posts here). I hope you’ll find this comprehensive tutorial useful like me.
Loving the Dropbox, like the clouds!
I have been a Dropbox user since 2010. During that time, I used Dropbox to send my first VA tutorials and resume to my mentor, Jomar Hilario. I was amazed by how Dropbox can send big files sending it via e-mail attachment.
I can say that I am one of Dropbox’s delighted users.
Dropbox is one of the best clouds storages in the Internet. Your file is both accessible and safe.
Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how you can have your own Dropbox account.
No need for this folder – thanks to Carbonmade!
As a virtual assistant, I can say that most (if not all) our accomplishments are not printed. It could be an office document (MS Word, Excel, or PowerPoint), a Facebook page, or even a website (like this!).
Carbonmade can put those accomplishments together and give us a great online portfolio!
Here’s a how-to guide for you.
A few days ago, I saw an e-mail in my Facebook. I was surprised to find out that it was from my mentor, Jomar Hilario. He asked my help to list down 5 things about working from home that I didn’t realize was possible before. Sir Jomar said it’s for his Monday webinar.
Being the Jedi student (or wait, should I say a Gryffindor student?) that I am, I listed them down. Sir Jomar replied a few hours later asking for permission to use the list for his upcoming book (finally! it’s long over due, I could say.). I replied with a YES.
Sir Jomar again asked for another help: a story out of one of the things that I listed down. Still, like the Gryffindor student (or a Jedi student? Sorry, I couldn’t make up my mind) that I am, I sent my story to his e-mail after a few minutes.
I’m posting down 5 things about working from home that I didn’t realize was possible before here in this post. Do you have the same things on your list? Let me know your thoughts on this by commenting below.
Jomar Hilario’s “How to Become a Virtual Assistant” Seminar is on March 16, 2013. Go to http://filipinova.com for more details.
Well, what do you think of my list? Fire away your comments!
