Tech tools topped the list of Time Finder Favorites this past month – a fact I discovered as I reviewed our blog stats for May. I love looking at what readers are drawn to, as it gives me ideas for additional posts.
And that’s especially true when a post surprises me with it’s popularity … like this one …
Jing Creates Screen Prints in Seconds and Saves You Time! This is a tool that my VA has been using a LOT and really loves. And readers of The Time Finder certainly have seemed to be intrigued by it, too. If you missed it the first time around, just click the link. The post includes a video that gives an excellent overview of Jing. But what does it do … in a nutshell?
Jing is a very flexible, practical, and (fun) screen capture tool.
It’s great for sharing images with members of your team, for example, or for capturing items that you want to post on Facebook as images.
There are lots of possibilities!

It can be helpful in some, very specific situations … but I suggest that you tread carefully in the world of multitasking. Read this thought-provoking post and see what you think!
