This blog is currently powered by Blogger. I don't have any plans of changing. But I've read about many corporate/professional bloggers who have moved to other platforms because of one reason or three. I'm grateful I haven't had to cross that river. That'd be a ton of work.
On the other hand, I have moved Sonlight's video content off our servers and onto Sonlight's YouTube channel. Again, it's not perfect--and I just ran into a limitation that's borked one of my projects... bah! But YouTube is the internet video site. And it is very nice to no longer worry about compatibility, servers, and quality options.
Needless to say: I love free tools that work and help me do my work better.
Of course, I gladly pay for other tools that make my life better as well. My cameras. My computers. My curriculum. I absolutely love finding a great deal, but I know I'm going to be shelling out some dough. And it's totally worth it.
There are also times--like this afternoon--when beating my head against a free option just doesn't seem worth it. In those moments I am tempted, sorely tempted, to start looking around for an option that works right.
What are some of your favorite tools?
