My weekend blog post routine includes posting links to a handful of tools or great content I ran across during the week.

I don’t go into depth about the finds, but encourage you check them out if they sound interesting. The photo in the post is a favorite for the week from Flickr.

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.

  • Good advice.  Stority can be a really nice tool to add some extra content to your site and keep visitors up-to-date.  With Google’s Panda update, you need to provide original content too or your SEO will be impacted.

  • Great information for those that are looking into getting into email marketing. Thanks for sharing it with everyone.

  •  Thanks for the share and readers want more from your blog and to keep them engaged we need tools which help us to achieve this.

  • There are some good links here, I’m definitely going to look into Storify, it sounds like a great tool.

    In the UK, I’ve used Docmail (, who are similar to 1hrMail. I was really impressed with their customer service, and they’re pretty cheap and hassle-free.
    I still use physical mailings, but use custom URLs and QR codes on them to drive my customers online.
