How Many email addresses do you have?
Personal email, work email, facebook email…
If you’ve started your own business, or many businesses, then you most likely have an email for each venture. It’s a pain to have so many, but if you want to look pro it’s a necessary evil. You must be able to respond to potential clients or customers with an email address from the same domain as your business website.
You will have to set up each individual email account, but it doesn’t mean you have to check each account individually. You can pull them all into one place.
When you set up a Gmail account you can send and receive emails from each of those accounts all through Gmail.
Below are the steps necessary to send email from a different email address in Gmail.
Obviously first you’ll need to create a Gmail account if you don’t have one already. After that, make sure all your individual email addresses forward to your Gmail account. There is an option to receive emails from different email addresses also. I may add that at a later time, but for now let’s start with this:
1. Log Into Gmail, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner and select “Settings”
2. Click on the “Accounts and Import” tab
3. Click on “Add another email address you own”
4. Type in the Name and Email Address, then click “Next”
5. You have two choices here, but sending through Gmail is by far the easiest. Select “Send through Gmail”, then click “Next Step”
6. Gmail needs to send a verification email to the address you’re trying to use. Click “Send Verification”, then login to that email address and there should be an email from Gmail with a verification link. Click on the link and it will be set up.
7. Now, when you send an email through Gmail, you will be able to choose which email address to use.

Just downloaded this WordPress app for the iPhone, and it’s seriously cool.
(WordPress for Android, Blackberry and Nokia Also Available)
I had the ability work on my WordPress blogs through iPhone’s Safari browser before, but there was a lot of window resizing, and repositioning. Plus having to login every time was a drag.
With this app, you register each blog and it offers the essentials; posts, pages, comments and stats. But you also have an option to add code:
This is a link
You also have the ability to add photos and videos in an easy to use interface. Location mapping allows you to share your whereabouts as you compose your masterpiece blog post.
So far, I’m really digging it! Originally the apps worked only with WordPress.com sites, but later versions include the ability to register self-hosted WordPress sites as well.
The WordPress App for the iPhone, very cool. Oh, and of course it’s FREE!
Below are all the WordPress Smart Phone Apps:
Here’s a link to the official site for the iPhone: IOS for WordPress
The Android App for WordPress is here: WordPress for Android
WordPress on your Blackberry: WordPress for Blackberry
Your Nokia Phone as well: WordPress for Nokia
Is Your Favorite CD or DVD Scratched? Recovery Toolbox Can Help
This one surprised me. A very good friend had a CD with literally hundreds of photos from Sept. 11, 2001.
She is a Fire Captain herself, and was totally distressed because she couldn’t access the data. The CD itself was almost 10 years old, which brings me to the first point:
CD’S ARE NOT DESIGNED TO LAST 10 YEARS!
With regular play, a CD can wear out in less than five years, which doesn’t account for it getting scratched in car visors and glove boxes.
I figured it was history, but after searching a little and trying 3 or 4 products out, I came across this one which totally rocks.
