Benefits of Using Office 365 and One Drive

For more info click the picture.

I absolutely love using my Office 365 program. I enjoy its features like OneDrive and the ability to add plug-ins.

I started using Microsoft Office a long time ago. I remember taking my first Microsoft Office class in college in 1998. I didn't know at the time that my future self would be using it everyday! Since then, I've updated my Microsoft Office program every time a new edition is released, and I recommend learning the new software this way, too.

It's really hard to work in the field of writing when your technology is old, because it is so easy to lose important information. Just ask any writer that has saved valuable writing on a floppy disk for safe keeping.

Microsoft Office 365 has the capacity to save your work to the cloud, which means it is always there and always accessible, no matter where you're working from. I can literally travel to Alaska, borrow a computer and work on my book if I log into my OneDrive account. It's that simple.

Another plus of Microsoft Office 365 is the plug-in capability. I bought the program StyleGuard from the Associated Press to use for article writing, and it works in conjunction with my office program. I love it! It really helped my grammar score improve.

Microsoft Office 365 doesn't just come with Microsoft Word, but it has other valuable programs like PowerPoint. I use PowerPoint to create my children's books (for tips making a children's book using Power Point click: here) and church flyers. I don't know what I would do without it.

Linda Pogue over at Mom's Red Kitchen recently wrote an article about the free One Drive Program for people who don't currently own a copy of Office 365 and I recommend checking out her article. To read it click: here.
