One of my new favorite "toys" is Google Alerts. I found out about it from my friends at The Blog Squad. It is one of those painfully simple ideas that just makes so much sense you wonder why it took this long for it to come around. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised to find out it's been around quite awhile...I am never on the cutting edge of technology.
Here is just how flippin' simple it is:
So, I now have alerts set for the terms "tutoring", "Huntington Learning Center", "Torrance, CA" and "Redondo Beach, CA". Once I become "Slightly Famous", I'll add my name.
Give it a try, and tell me what your alerts are. I'll bet they are more interesting than mine!
