top 8 – sites that made my week!

24 Mar


1. I’m always looking for inspiring websites and the Inspiralist is like a triple chocolate fudge iced cake! Described as directory of creative sources, I love the visuals, but hope the site can expand very quickly. Bonus: Inspirations are sorted by design elements, resources, color, type, etc.

National Geographic's Daily Dozen

2. Who doesn’t love National Geographic? The Daily Dozen a is selection of twelve photos published monthly in their magazine. Grab a little world perspective.

Blackbird Pie

3. Twitter Media developed Blackbird Pie, a professional way to capture specific tweets for blog posts or websites. Please note you’ll need a tweet url, not the whole Twitter account for an isolated screen shot. You’ll be given the html code once you bake it.

Chris Brogan Social Media Etiquette

4. Huge fan of Chris Brogan and The Insider’s Guide to Social Media Etiquette. He touches upon appearance, friending, conversation, disclosure, promoting, content production and how sharing is caring. Simple do’s and don’ts of the Social Media world all in on place for easy reference.


5. Wishpond is nifty while helping you be thrifty. Plug in your zip code and a product you’re shopping for and Wishpond will find you the best deal in your area. You can set up alerts for price drops and try out the iPhone app. I can’t wait to try my hand at this money saver.

Develop Socially

6. A Social Media blog, Develop Socially has a plethora of fresh, current content. A new Twitter friend and Social Media Evangelist Justin Brackett pointed me its way and also co-authors. Topics include Twitter, Foursquare, new Facebook developments…everything to keep you up-to-date.

Byki, learn a new language

7. If you are a Jacksonvillian and ever wanted to learn a new language for free, The Jacksonville Public Library has a free resource for library card holders. Byki uses flash cards to assist users in developing skills for a foreign language. I’ve had “learn Spanish” on my to-do list for quite a while and hope this free tool will help me out. Now I just need to find the time 🙂


8. AllFacebookStats launched this past week. I thoroughly enjoy the AllFacebook blog and hope this spin-off lives up to the efficiency they’ve maintained to date. There seems to be a free and paid version with a 14 day trial period for analysis. The feature list is rather extensive: detailed fan counts, content analysis, tracking Facebook Places, to name a few.
