“Have you ever sat down and you’ve got this great idea but you need to figure out all the elements in play? There’s are amazing different software out there called Mind Mapping. Specifically, one that comes to mind that I’ve used is www.Coggle.It

Cool Site Spotlight Mind mapping Coggle David Papp

Coggle has a free plan, where you can have three private diagrams and unlimited number of public diagrams. You can create flow charts where you just branch out and have your ideas and just start typing stuff out. And then it can give you the diagram at the end that you can print out and use, and share with your team.

This is a quick great tool to share it with your friends or have it down on paper.”

What to talk about in your online posts

“Have you ever wondered what to talk about on your blog post, your videos, and those social media posts that you put out there? There are some great websites that can help you out.

One of them is trends.google.com. When you go to the Trends website for Google, you can actually see what’s trending worldwide. What are the hot topics? You can drill it down by geography, country, certain topics and actually see what are the hot topics that people are talking about.

A second website that is absolutely amazing and it’s going to look a little weird when you land on it, it’s answerthepublic.com. Answer the Public has this guy on the cover who comes on the screen but you basically put in any kind of topic, like leadership, and it gives you all of the top questions that you could use in order to title your blog. These are common queries from people.

Another great one that I love is title-generator.com which comes up with like 700 headlines that you can use, again based on a word. You just pop it in there, and it gets you some headlines.

These are all free tools and you’ve got all these amazing ideas.

Last but not least, another great one is the Google Auto-Complete. You know how you just start typing something in the Google Search and then as you’re typing it in, it starts completing your sentence? You can use that as well because Google is telling you what the top search terms are based around that keyword.

These are some great, amazing, free tools that you can use in order to help you figure out what are some great headlines, titles, and topics for your posts that you can use for the stuff that you’re putting online.”

How Safe Is Your Data From Ransomware?

How Safe Is Your Data From Ransomware?

It announces its presence with a giant screensaver announcing that ALL your files are completely locked up.  And in 72 hours the perpetrator will throw away the key.

Or you suddenly view a “surveillance” webcam-selfie with an official warning that you’re wanted by the FBI.  A message demands payment of a fine if you ever want to use your computer again.

Welcome to Ransomware

Ransomware is a newer form of cyberattack that can:

  • encrypt your files
  • freeze your computer screen
  • storm you with pop-ups
  • and literally hold all your precious data for ransom.


It vows to return everything to normal after you pay up.  But of course, it’s run by criminal cyber gangs, and they don’t necessarily keep their promises.
