I’m actually away on the last day of a holiday today, having been down to Plymouth to visit my Mum and Dad. But here I am, writing a newsletter for you anyway… or actually, I’m not.
You see, normally I sit down and think “What am I going to write about today?” Or sometimes I already have something in mind.
But this time, I’m not writing it at all… you are.
Well, I don’t mean you personally, necessarily. I mean you as in readers of this newsletter.
First, I’ve got a tip one reader sent me last week:
Checking for pages you’ve visited in Chrome
Here’s the tip:
I don’t know if Tim has mentioned/ covered this in his news emails but I have just made a useful discovery, by accident, as so many are. If you use Google chrome there is access to your user history, a bit like Internet Explorer, only Google only goes back about for days, If you open Google Chrome, hit ctrl and H, it opens your usage history and for me that also included searches done using my tablet.
In fact it’s something I use a lot – and tips like that are often the ones I find it hardest to think about mentioning! Because it’s almost second nature, I don’t think to mention it – but it could be really helpful to other people.
So thanks Ken, for the tip (and for helping me write today’s newsletter in that way!)
And thinking about how sometimes the tips I use the most are the hardest to think of make me think: what are the tips, tricks or techniques you use the most?
If you’ve got something you find handy and you think others might do so too, why not click on the link at the bottom or top that lets you view this on the web and make comments and leave a comment saying what your favourite tip is. While you’re there you can see what everyone else says and you just might find one that’ll make things easier for you.
See – I’ve written today’s email without actually coming up with any ideas myself… but I still think it could be really helpful to you!
Next week, I’ll be back to having to do the work myself again. In the meantime, why not have a look at that page and see what tips other people have suggested and maybe leave one (or more) of your own?
