Good stuff I found this week:
Google Plus Card – This WordPress plugin puts your Google Plus profile in your blog sidebar just like you see over there to the left

Visual.ly – Very cool tool that simplifies the act of creating infographics. You can also explore and embed a graphic from a growing library housed there. (Image in this post is screenshot only from the site not an embed)

World Time Buddy – for anyone that deals with multiple time zones this is the most ridiculously easy time zone converter tool ever.

Good stuff I found this week:
1hr Mail - Service makes it very easy to handle postal mail – 1 pc or 1000 – nice fulfillment tool if you do mail – something that I believe still has great appeal.

Code Canyon – Library of premium WordPress scripts and plugins that allow you to do lots of cool things with WordPress.

Storify – Very powerful tool for curating stories from around the web and social sites. I’ve pointed this out before, but they just added automatic publishing to WordPress sites so I thought it was worth another mention – this tool allows you to create all manner of custom curated content and then publish it as one blog post.

Keepstream – tool that allows you to organize and publish an archive of things on Twitter such as events streams, specific conversations or a product launch and then embed the conversation on your site. Also makes a great way to share a conversation about a client to help them understand the buzz.

Good stuff I found this week:

Email on Acid – despite the odd name this is a very useful tool – it allows you to take a peak at what your email will look like in almost every email client and browser. Check your HTML email templates is a good idea as they can vary dramatically from client to client.

Curate.US – This tool makes it very easy to create clips from sites you visit and then share these visual links with automatic attribution back to the original content. You can even embed the clips as you curate.

Vidpresso – pretty simple idea here – this tool syncs a video with a presentation – so if you’ve got your slides and you recorded a video of you presenting this can put the two together to create something that may be more useful for online display
