One of the reasons I enjoy Twitter is learning about useful resources and newsletters.
I’ve learned about accessibility workshops, found solutions for coding problems, and discovered newsletters that help me with my web design work.
Which is what today’s post is about: a helpful digital tools newsletter my friend Birgit Pauli-Haack shared on Twitter.

What is WonderTools?
Published by Jeremy Caplan, he describes WonderTools as
A free short newsletter on digital tools that help make working from home more efficient, enjoyable and creative.
The slogan for his newsletter is
Useful tiny tips for getting more done, better.
Exactly what I need.
Yes, I subscribed!
I’m always looking for digital tools to streamline my work and this newsletter fits my needs.
In the May 28, 2020 edition, Caplan wrote about Calendly, on online scheduling service that allows you to avoid the back and forth messages of scheduling phone calls.
I’ve been considering Calendly for a while, but his review finally convinced me to sign up for their premium service at $8.00 (U.S. dollars) a month.
What I Like About WonderTools
There’s a lot I like about WonderTools:

- The newsletter is formatted for readability
- Published weekly
- Caplan often offers alternatives for similar tools
- As director of teaching & learning at the Newmark Journalism School at the City University of New York, Caplan knows a lot about digital tools

I’ve already discovered three tools that will help me save time getting my work done.
Thank you, Jeremy Caplan!
