I finally opened a Gmail account so that I can start working smarter. I made the switch after reading Six Ways Gmail Makes Blogging Easier on BlogCoach and Email: Transform This Tool from Stressful to Useful on Simple Mom. I’ll let these two bloggers tell you why Gmail is better and can help you work smarter. The wonderful part is that I don’t even need to give-up any of my current email addresses in order to make Gmail work for me. I still receive all of my email, it is simply forwarded to my Gmail account and I respond to most of it from there. So, you might be hearing from me from my new email account, I’m simply “Freebies4Mom” at Gmail.com.
