December 23 Web tool. It came into your work flow this year and now you couldn’t live without it. It has simplified or improved your online experience.
Tonight I sat here a while thinking about all the web tools I use for both work and personal, trying to decide which one meant the most to me. I pretty much exist because of web tools. I’m not joking here. As the Community Manager and SEO for SEOmoz, I spend my entire day online. Usually communicating with people through social media, instant messaging, email, pretty much anything you can imagine. If I’m doing site audits, I use a gamut of tools from various Firefox plugins to Google Webmaster Tools.
Although all of these are essential to my daily life, there’s really only one that helps me focus during the day. Only one that can instantly pick me up if I’ve had a bad day, or take me back to a specific moment in time. Whether I’m working in a coffee shop or from home (and soon to be from the office… WOOT!) I couldn’t go through the day without Pandora.
As I type this Pandora is playing “Ixtapa” from Rodrigo y Gabriela and it makes me smile. How many web tools do you use that can put a smile on your face? Exactly.
