Tools of the trade

What tools do you use in your business? We'll talk about productivity and invoicing software, tools to keep track of business expenses and other tax info, blogging and social networking, sundry gadgets we never imagined using before and now find indispensable--and hey, maybe we'll even touch on some tech (or techniques) that we use for our actual editing.

    Does anyone from Davis attend this group? I'd like to go, but I don't have a car so I'd need to carpool. =/

      I'd say ride with me but I'm in the same boat! (Get it? Ride and boat? lol) I probably wouldn't be able to make it either way because my parents will be up visiting from Fresno.

      Hi Megan and Steven, I'm also from Davis and don't have a car, so it looks like we could get a pretty big carpool going if we found someone with a car!

    I am actually moving to Louisville, Ky. the first of December so I won't be attending any of the local functions. I was looking forward to meeting new people and learning new things. Finding a local Chapter in Louisville is at the top of my list of things to do when I get there

      Best of luck with your move, Sue. I hope you enjoy Louisville. You're not, by any chance, taking a job with Presbyterian Publishing House, are you? Sorry we will miss you as part of our chapter.

      Thanks, Susan. No, I don't have a job lined up yet. I'll be hunting as soon as I get to town. I'm moving to be closer to family.
      Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I just purchased The Business of Editing by Richard Adin. Probably will not have it in hand by this Monday but just wanted to let you know of its existence.

    It has a whole section on tools of the editing trade as well as LOTS of info on pricing...thinking about using this book as the basis for several future conversations in our chapter. Buy it here:

    Info on other tools for editors can also be found here:

    I'm going to have an especially hectic day that Monday, so I'd better pass. See you at the holiday party!

      Good to know about the hectic in advance. Yep, see you at the holiday party!
