I crave organization. I’ve written several articles about my love for Alejandra, my favorite organizing guru. However, I’m one of those people where you have to give me warning if you’re coming to my house. I’m just telling it like it is. As much as I crave that level of organization, I don’t always do it.
I do, however, try to organize my online life. I have folders and I know what’s in them. I keep files alphabetized. My desktop is generally pretty clean. But links are one of those hard things to get organized. I used to use tools like Delicious, and of course there’s Pinterest, but what if I want my links organized natively with all my documents related to the same topic?
One hack that I’m sure we’ve all done before is to create a Word document and to put the link on it. I don’t really like that, though, because then you have to go open the Word document and click the link. It’s not intelligent enough for me.
I can think of two better ways to handle such a linkage conundrum. In this video, I show you how to take either an Excel spreadsheet or your OneDrive and save links there the same way that you would save documents, so that when you go to teach a lesson, everything is in one place. Check it out.
