Fill out a card for each site used, ever, in your online work. Blogs, content sites, social media and sharing sites, affiliate sites, individual clients - one card for each site. On the top line write the name of the site - example: Wizzley.com
Below this, enter the email address used, username, password or any other information necessary to use the site. It's easy to replace a card if the old one is filled up with changed passwords or new information. Keep a stack of blank cards in the back of the file for updates or taking notes.
This is much easier than hunting through a notebook of scribbles and unorganized information. The start-up may take a little time, but is easy if you fill out and file a card for each site as you go along. The u[keep only consists of filing the cards and changing to a new card when necessary.
If you have multiple varieties of sites, use color-coded cards for ease of setting up your work schedule. Sites for marketing your work get "green" and sites to write content all get "yellow" or any variation to suit your particular needs.
Thanks, kimbesa! That is what matters, finding what works for each of us. I'm naturally unorganized so need intensive help. LOL
I've got a notebook (binder) with letter tabs. More room to write, and I don't need to take it anywhere. I can see the cards work well when your laptop travels!
Thanks, Thamisgith, a 6x4 works, too! I used the 3x5 because they're so readily available and I already had some at home.
Interesting idea and nice tips.
I must be a bit old fashioned I suppose, but despite having a plethora of gadgets for getting on the interweb, I still rely on my old 6X4 card filing system. Had it for years - and it works well for me. I think that you shared a great tip here!
Sometimes necessity breeds genius - I am the most disorganized person I know!
genius and simple.... why didn't I think of this
