The Lessnau Lounge brings to the table two great WordPress plugins – Twitterdoodle and RSSdoodle.
Twitterdoodle allows you to create mashup posts (or roundups) of tweets about a specific topic being talked about on Twitter. For example, if you want to make a post about Apple iPods or your favorite tv show, Twitterdoodle has some great features, such as an option to make posts go automatically to your category archives and not your blog’s front page.
RSSdoodle works the same way, except it compiles lists of blog posts from around the web.

Google Notebook will be around for a while, but Google has stopped development on this highly popular online notetaking tool. New users will not be added, and there will be no updates to the Google Notebook Firefox Extension.
The Official Google Notebook Blog suggests to use Google Docs, Tasks in Gmail Labs or Google Bookmarks. However, I have an even better suggestion – Evernote.
Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.

1. Journal – Journaling is more than just putting your words, feelings and emotions on paper. Sometimes things that you write that happen in your own life or emotions you have can spur characters or ideas for writing. It can put your more at ease, which means your brain is free and open to let the words flow.
