How Online Tools Enable My Cancer Fundraising

Running the Mississauga Marathon PodCamp Toronto helped me to step back and acknowledge the importance of the online tools I use. I’ve written about the tools I use in general before but today I’m writing about the tools I’m using for one project – my effort to fight cancer using online tools.

This project revolves around using a series of different tools to chart my progress towards running the Boston Marathon – exactly eight weeks away at time of writing.

All of these tools integrate and work together to make this project viable.

So, here it is: what I capture, how I capture it, and how I publish it online.

(Coincidentally, this fits in nicely with Chris Brogan’s 20 blogging projects for you post from this morning. This hits two of his ideas: “tools you use” and “a cause to connect”)
