Blog Resources: Researching the Research, Finding the Facts, and Seeking Supporting Evidence As part of my ongoing series on blog resources, covering the many online resources I use to help me blog, you can tell that I don’t deal with rumors or guesses. I like facts. I don’t mind a few estimates, but I like being right when I make a claim or statement, so I work hard to find backup supporting evidence to support what I write. Here are some of the resources I’ve bookmarked to help me find the research material, facts, and supporting evidence for my blog writing. Your list may be different because of the topics you cover. Mine relates specifically to blogging, blog writing, and WordPress, and a few other blog-related topics. Is It Fact Or Fiction Before you publish it on your blog or forward that email, check to make sure you are publishing and forwarding facts not fiction. Check first. Here are some hoax and scam checking resources and articles. Chasing the News I use several resources for tracking down newspapers, magazines, and news beyond typical online resources. General US Law

Explore museums and great works of art in the Google Art Project One of the things I love about working at Google is that you can come up with an idea one day and the next day start getting to work to make it a reality. That's what happened with the Art Project—a new tool we're announcing today which puts more than 1,000 works of art at your fingertips, in extraordinary detail. It started when a small group of us who were passionate about art got together to think about how we might use our technology to help museums make their art more accessible—not just to regular museum-goers or those fortunate to have great galleries on their doorsteps, but to a whole new set of people who might otherwise never get to see the real thing up close. We're also lucky here to have access to technology like Picasa and App Engine and to have colleagues who love a challenge—like building brand-new technology to enable Street View to go indoors!

Using Piktochart: a marketing technology review A friend alerted me to Piktochart, the online Infographics creator so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s my first impression after making two infographics, the one you see above (which took about 7 minutes) and a spoof Content Marketing Strategy infographic I cranked out last week and shared on Pinterest (yes, it did get shared as a real infographic). What is Piktochart? It’s a quick and easy way for non-designers to create and share infographics. Why would you use it? How does it work? You can then change the ‘Mood’ using pre-made colour palettes and start editing the text, icons and images using pretty simple drag & drop editing tools. You can then export your work as a PNG file, as raw data or as HTML (Premium only). Pros Very easy for non-designers to get something basic createdFast & free Cons Alternatives Use a proper designer – you can’t beat a talented designer (like our own Jim, Luke, Joel and Mel for instance) for making your ideas come to life.
