Everyone asks me about tools.
They ask me about what tools they should be using for their social media.
They ask me how to manage their content production.
They ask me how to manage their own lives sometimes. Which, um. You know, I’m good and everything but I’m not sure I’m that good.
If you start digging around the internet for tools to use to help you on your publishing journey, you’ll go down a rabbithole really quickly. It’s like any project management tool-seeking journey.
You set out on your quest, a definite brief in a scroll in your hot little hand. But as you start along your journey, you encounter wise men and women who give you advice.
Some whisper it from behind rocks near the creek. Some shout it from the rooftops as you scoot past on the back of a horse you found near the murky swamps.
And just as you seem to have gotten near to to the peak of the mountain on which you’ve been promised the Guru sits, you catch a peek of the rest of the range.
Then you realise that the mountain range is never-ending, and your Guru could be on any one of a thousand peaks that curve away into the distance.
I mean, yeah you can use collaborative tools like Trello for collectively managed production calendars.
But you know what? A spreadsheet usually does just as well.
As for social media? Man, you don’t even need someone to create posts for you. Technology is way beyond that.
All you need is MissingLettr.
