The editorial mission of the Mind Mapping Software Blog is to be the number one source of information, news, trends, tips and training on the business uses of mind mapping, diagramming, sketching and other types of visual thinking software and tools. I do this by providing you with unique knowledge and actionable insights that help you be more productive, creative and effective in your work.
About the blog
The Mind Mapping Software Blog, authored and published by Chuck Frey, was the first blog exclusively devoted to this type of productivity software and tools. Since its founding in 2007, it has gained a reputation for balanced reporting, valuable advice and keen insights about all forms of visual thinking. It is the most trusted website on the web for information, news, reviews, tips and insights on how to get the most out of mind mapping software for business.
In recent years, the scope of the blog has expanded to include all types of visual thinking tools and strategies. To reflect this, in December 2023, I rebranded the Mind Mapping Software Blog to Visual Velocity.
It covers a variety of topics that are focused on the business needs of users of mind mapping software, including:
- Best practices to help you be more productive with this type of software
- Tips for getting the most out of it
- The most valuable tools and resources that will help you to enhance your visual mapping experience
- Reviews of visual mapping programs, add-ins and web-based applications
- New versions and enhancements to mind mapping programs
Increasingly, this blog is also becoming a valued resource for visual thinking news, information and strategies – including the topics of diagramming, infographics, sketching, sketchnoting and graphic facilitation.
