When you're working online 10 hours a day as I do, you appreciate all the help you can get. Here are four great tools I've discovered over the last six months that make my job a lot easier. Have one of your own I probably don't know about yet? Feel free to enlighten all of us in the comments below.

1. Sliderocket

As freemium slideshow tools go, this is the best I've found. Long before my 30-day free trial expired, I was hooked and ponied up for a monthly membership. It's always better to show rather than tell, so here's just a small sample of what you can do with Sliderocket:

They've also got superb customer service and have called me on my cell whenever I've needed them.

2. Dropbox

My pal Alexis Ohanian, founder of reddit.com, turned me onto Dropbox. It's another brilliant freemium model that gives you 2GB of free cloud storage. Best part is: once you install the Dropbox folder on all your computers, whatever you place in that folder is automatically synced on all devices, even on your phone. No more emailing files to yourself or plugging in flash drives to transfer stuff! I use it often throughout the day.

3. Search Free Fonts
