Imagine this: you’re pouring your heart into writing a lengthy post in a web form, and it’s a thing of beauty. You’re inspired. You’re typing faster and faster, eager to get your message to the masses. And you know they are going to be just as emblazoned as you are after reading your insight. You give it a once-over, and, satisfied that it’s a work of art, press submit. Only to discover that the page has timed out and you’ve lost everything you just wrote! Gone are those days. Google Docs provides a great way to write, edit, and manage your content, and it auto-saves for you at regular intervals.
Google Docs also makes it really easy to bring collaborators into a project by sharing documents, either individually or as a group, with those who will be working on your project. Here’s Corey Eridon’s post on Free Tools for Business Bloggers, with more detailed instructions for collaborating with a team on Google Docs.
