MindMapping Over 100 Online Tools for Freelancers

I came across an excellent resource providing information on 100 different online resources and tools for freelancers.

I wanted to internalize the information in a way that I could rapidly work with in multiple settings in the future if I ever needed to find the right tool for the job. So of course I mindmapped out the tools listed, plus I added in the tools suggested in the comments and I added a bunch of my own.

Now I have a great starting point for the future whenever I need to build up the list or find something I need quickly. I linked back to the original article from my MindMap Central topic and I created sub maps for each of the categories identified. This kept each category of items viewable at a single glance.

I’ve provided snapshots of these maps below. For more details about each of the tools I suggest a quick visit over to the site yourself as it really does have a great deal of information.

In the meantime, I did this experiment in part to internalize the info as I mentioned, but also in part to find a more rapid way of mindmapping this type of information from primary sources on the web. I hope to find more efficient ways to achieve this goal in the future.

  1. Wo! That’s a whopper of a posting–great information that obviously took a lot of time and effort to compile. A very good way to organize one’s thoughts and ideas in a way that could preserve them for some time.

  2. Thanks for the comment!

    The credit really goes to the authors of the original article

    Mindmapping is to text what pivot tables are to tables of data in excel or in a database.

    The only hard part was converting the text into a mind map tool like MindManager.

    So this was a bit of a manual pivot table, but in MindManager form it does have some power. Of course the primary concept of mindmapping is to take a linear list of information and put it into a format that is easier to remember and more importantly draw a useful connection to that information.
