I’ve been using the AZZ Cardfile software for years now, and usually tend to recommend it to people that I know and my clients, if they are looking for something like this. It takes little memory, resides in your taskbar near your timeclock, and is quite versatile. It’s basically a cardex on the left side, and it’s a free-for-all on the right side! URL’s are clickable links .. if you type mailto:email@address it is also clickable .. you can toss over pictures, and the text expands as you need the space. On my main phone number database, I jot down dates and brief comment discussions .. since my memory sucks!
I personally have 3 “Cardfiles” accessible at all times. It’s nice, because if you go ‘File’ / ‘Open’ / .. the last 4 datafiles are shown (like Excel or Word does if you know what I mean). This is how I utilize this neat little program:
THE HART AND YVONNE CARDFILE
* Every possible person for both personal and business is added to the database, last name order. I also update with addresses .. phone numbers .. comments .. everything!
BLOGGING MONETIZATION AND SPONSORSHIPS
* I list each blog in the left side, and I have a standard template on the right side. On the last day of each month, I add all my sponsors and make it easy to copy/paste into my blogs! I usually finish PRE-posting them around the 2nd of the month, but pre-date them around the 10th 😀
ONLINE PASSWORDS AND AFFILIATIONS
Geez Loueeeze! These can take forever … Don’t use a binder – use this! I have a clickable link to each site that I have to log in to – including the userid, the password, and the email that is being recognized. If there is any other information (like, mother’s maiden name, favorite high school sweetheart name, etc) .. I also add it.
