      This is a great list of tools, spotted one or two that caught my eye immediately, and a couple that I will be coming back to in the near future hopefully. Bookmarked, and on the email list looking forward to more great posts 🙂

        Thanks Joel, it’s a growing list, so it will definitely be worth checking back often on 🙂
