I often scour the internet looking for innovative websites that I may find of use or are just interesting in their application and development. I am not talking about mini site developments or how someone took their names and parked them thinking that is development. I am intrigued as to what the rest of the world is doing with their intellectual property (as in virtual real estate). Here are this weeks 5:
Presidential Candidates 404 Pages
Looks like the RickSantorum.com dev crew has a pretty good hand on their 404 Error pages… They have a nice image of Hillary Clinton, sporting the classic incognito wear, checking her phone for some possible Benghazi emails on her personal account..because its so “Convenient”
Eve’s Addiction Is Also Mine
I am a jewelry freak. I know many of you don’t see me wear many pieces but I hoard it like a crow. The shinier the better. I found EvesAddiction.com to be the place for costume jewelry especially for replica pieces you may see in magazines, movies and by the upper crust of societies In Crowd. They constantly update their site with new designs, discounts and they have one of the best return policies on the planet. If you see a Tiffany style ring but you don’t want to spend a Queens Fortune, dig around on this site and I am sure you will find something very similar.
Blind Dates Iranian Style
Iran has never been keen on the West’s ideas of online dating but recently they have changed their mind…sorta. Iran now has a STATE SANCTIONED dating site but here the catch… YOU DONT GET TO SEE PROFILES OF OTHERS OR COMMUNICATE WITH THEM…according to IBTimes.com “Although launching the website is a major step for the Iranian government, users cannot see others’ profiles or pictures.
“The site’s 100 administrators are the only ones with full access to it, and they are the ones responsible for matching users based on a list of basic details such as height and weight, as well as both parents’ occupation. Questions about hobbies and tastes in music and food do not appear on the website, the BBC reported.”……
Somewhere Over The Reading Rainbow
One of my favorite all time things to do as a child was read. As an only child it was up to me at times to find my own entertainment. When Reading Rainbow was introduced through the Public Television stations in 1983, I found it to be another worthy piece of entertainment (Nickelodeon had just launched ) to help me continue my literary journeys through reading by offering samples, highlights and fueling the passion for reading which I still have to this very day ( In 2011 I read over 300 books in one year).
Reading Rainbow came to an end in 2009 but since then has reincarnated from its former ashes with the enormous Kickstarter Crowdfunding efforts of Levar Burton. This is an invaluable resource for children and adults alike to get the written word out to those who may not have the resources locally. The new and improved digital age Reading Rainbow will provide a digital library to schools who are in desperate need or who have diminished libraries due to lack of state funding FOR FREE.
Initial Here Please
I love monogrammed items and I scour the web for new and inventive sites with outside the box products. I found the site MarleyLilly.com to offer, for me, the best options, variety and selections for my monogramming obsession. This site offers a quick and inexpensive way to get a unique gut for yourself or for some one else (no, I do not get a kickback by promoting their site, I truly do like what they offer). The site is simple, colorful, easy to navigate and gets me to where i want to be and what I want to buy in a short amount of time. If there is a better site for this kind of service, let me know, I’ll check them out but at this point in time..it just doesn’t exist.
