I’m have my own method of organization. The conventional worker bee might think me to be disorganized, but that is totally not true. I have my own system. Something that looks like a messy pile or envelopes and scratch paper is actually a systematically filed work space. It’s for security purposes. I do it cause i don’t want blogger spies to steal my shit. Can’t steal what you can’t find.
All joking aside, i know i that i have to improve my organization methods. With internet ventures, the files are exponential. I have hundreds if not thousands of passwords, codes, domains, urls, and paychecks to account for. I need to develop a better system. While i was in LA, i couldn’t work on a few of my blogs cause i didn’t remember my passwords. At my noobcave, i have all of the pwords loaded on my browser. All i need to do is punch in my master pword. I love firefox! But the bad thing was, i didn’t bring my pword sheet with me to LA. I forgot to include that file in my portable hard drive. I feel so stupid. At least, for my next trip, i’ll be better equipped. And next time, i’ll be more organized.
This is what i plan to do. Make a list of important info and create a master folder. Create sub folders by website. I’ll include all relevant info for each website. I’ll also make an affiliates folder and include all affiliates stuff in there. I’ll then do one for wordpress. Then another folder for logins. etc. I used to use the desktop search, but as i add more files, i find that a lot repeat results show up. I think doing it manually will become faster. Or i should start putting more specific labels.
What are some of the the methods you guys use to file all the web documents? Instead of reinventing the wheel, i should listen to some of your organization methods. I know some of you are seasoned veterans of this blogging game.
