Have you guys heard of Dropbox? Do you use it? PS that is their image, I just added my undying love to it…
For those of you who don’t know (aka Dizee two months ago), it is a central location to store files (up to 2GB ) allowing you to use them anywhere. There are certain restrictions, so you should check their user guidelines, but can I say how life altering this has been?
Keep in mind, I am learning how to become more organized. It is a slow and generally painful progress. However, this has helped tremendously. At a minimum, at least this aspect of my life is organized! Phew!
How do I use it?
Good question – the possibilities are endless.
a) I store all my printables, like this one, here so I can access them when I need them
b) I keep copies of e-books I have purchased/downloaded so I can read it on the go (some are not ‘kindle’ friendly)
c) I store pictures I want to send / work on.
d) I have a little recipe folder where I post ideas/etc so I don’t lose the links (aka my baked potato!)
e) I keep my running list of blogging ideas & blogging files handy (I know! Very important!!!!)
f) I keep my “Cruelty Free” product list available
Since the blog is just a hobby and I make no money on it/receive perks, I do not believe I violate any terms and conditions. I does help my mental health though – I am not sure you can put a price on that!!!!
I am sure there are people who don’t want their ‘stuff’ out there, but I don’t load compromising information (credit card numbers, SSN#, etc). It is so much easier than emailing myself every time I update something!
Does anyone use Dropbox? I would love to know your thoughts. I am very, very happy with it!
