Even though there has been some controversy with regards to copyright and terms and conditions, Pinterest’s popularity continues to grow.
If you are a Pinterest user, here are 9 tips, tricks and tools that will assist in using the site.
We are now in that mid holiday week limbo period. Christmas is over and New Years isn’t quite here. The kids are off from school and without childcare it is very difficult (almost impossible) to work.
This week I have WordPress, Twitter, Morgan Freeman, coconuts and much much more.
October, like most of my life, is flying by. A week from today will be the time change (fall back) and the aftermath of Halloween. Alex decided to go as Little Red Riding Hood :-)
This week we have sci fi, productivity, scotch tape, WordPress and more.
I am not a domestic person. I don’t enjoy sewing, decorating, cleaning, organizing, gardening, etc. if you’re a regular reader of this site, I’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise to you.
I do, however, enjoy cooking. I didn’t used to. But going on 10 years ago I became a vegan (I am a vegetarian now or lapsed vegan) and figured I was either going to starve or live on popcorn (without butter) if I didn’t learn how to cook.
I got some cookbooks and magazines, searched for recipes online and learned how to cook. I started with a couple of recipes, which I now know by heart, and slowly increased the recipes I knew.
I am frequently looking for new “keeper” recipes – recipes that I will make over and over again – and the available online now and so much more extensive and are much prettier than they were 10 years ago.(I guess that’s the 2 in Web 2 point oh).
So, here are three sites to help you locate new recipes. One is my favorite, one is handy and the other is fun. And last but not the list, if you have someone who knows who is a vegetarian and you want to give them something that is edible and good for their health, then sinful vegan is the answer.
There are two tools that people use to rank themselves on Twitter; Twinfluence and Twitter Grader. A couple of weeks ago Mashable wrote an article about how to improve your rank and the criteria that each tool uses to rank you.
While I have tested the tools, I have not broadcast my scores on Twitter, which many people seem to do. And I have good scores, I just don’t see the point. I have wondered why people do tweet the score that they received.
