A great way to start... Cool tool...

This might be old news for some people, but I just learned about it today. It's a free service called Protopage and I am in love with it.

Protopage allows you to create a personalized start up page featuring whatever items you'd like. You can add your email in-box, your favorite RSS feeds, your preferred search engine search boxes, links, and more. Even custom-colored sticky notes, which can be very handy. The display is flexible and customizable.

This AJAX-driven freebie is a lot of fun and is a great way to organize and have all of the stuff you really need to look at regularly right at your fingertips. I've also noticed more than a few Protopage hacks floating around out there that could serve to increase its utility even more.

I usually stick to content writing and copywriting issues, so you might be wondering what led to this ringing endorsement. Well, this blog post is certainly not paid advertising, if that's what you are wondering. It's just a heads-up on something I think has great potential and appeal for both my clients and fellow writers.
