Editorial Calendar

Wanting to explain to my clients and colleagues, what an "Editorial Calendar" is, I searched for "Editorial Calendar tools" and found...
Reimagining starts with an editorial calendar. I use an Excel spreadsheet for mine, and have several columns: Posting date, type, purpose bucket (borrowed from Jason Falls), media/links, comments, subscribers, other. My spreadsheet has a dual purpose, schedule and brainstorm. But after reading Content Rules, I decided I needed two more columns on my editorial calendar: reimagine and purpose bucket.   Don't Just Recycle--Reimagine! by Chris Syme @cksyme
And reading this article by Chris Syme, I then proceeded to tweet, to inform my Twitter followers. 
Which led me to write this post, here.
Any other good tools or articles that you know about?

Aware of Rapportive?

At a recent Community Manager Breakfast meeting we discussed our favorite software. The best take away for me was Rapportive. Here's what ReadWriteWeb has to say about Rapportive, "Stop What You Are Doing & Install This Plug-In: Rapportive"

Here's what others are saying about Rapportive:

Rapportive says "Imagine relationship management built into your email. For free."

Perhaps it's time for me to put together a top 10 favorite software/apps list. Rapportive will be on this list.
