99designs.com is a great website with a great model. Think about this, you host and control your own online contest for a design of any sort that you need. For example, if you need a logo for your new company, you can host a competition for the best design that 45,000 different graphic artists can come up with. You will receive hundreds of designs from all over the world. Find one you like, pick it, and award the designer the prize. Usually a one week contest will run you about $250. Of this amount, $200 will be awarded to the winner and you will own the design he/she created. It sounds a bit pricey but for something like a logo which a single designer may charge you,$200 for, you might as well see 100 concepts instead of one. So if you ever need anything designed, check out 99designs.com
A programmer without his computer, eating canned food, and pitching a tent. Well at least that is my guess on what Mr. Beales is up to at the moment. While our lead programmer is looking for a nice little natural restroom to pop a squat, we have plenty people working on furthering the development of the site. However, there is no doubt that John Beales is the mastermind behind what is to come. It’s exciting, and should hit your screens sometime in the fall. We all agree that everybody needs a little vacation now and then, so in honor of John trying to build a fire instead of a logarithm, I suggest Gorp.com for all your camping needs! Check it out, it will show you where to go, how to get there, suggested gear to bring, and tons of other good stuff from all over the world.
I came across a friend the other day who mentioned he was an integral part of an organization that helps kids who have critical illnesses. Miraclesforkids.org is a charity based out of Orange County, California dedicated to providing aid to families who are in a financial crisis due to their child’s life threatening illness. Sponsors can help out by donating any amount, volunteering time, sponsoring a family, or purchasing a basket of miracles. It’s a great way to help those in need no matter where you are from. Even a little can go a long way. Check it out, and help out! Miraclesforkids.org
I know I already wrote about pandora. However, if you only got your 40 free hours of music this month from pandora and are hesitant about spending the $37 for unlimited music then switch to Grooveshark.com. Tons of music flows through Grooveshark and you can pretty much personalize it to yourself. It has great functionality and is very user friendly. I am not an avid user yet so I cant exactly fill you in on all of their great functions. I do know one thing though, If you’re Canadian you can actually use Grooveshark, unlike Pandora. Check it out, its easy to use, its sleek, and most importantly it has a lot of great music.
Fuzzmail.org is pretty cool. It allows you to send emails that record your typing. It’s supposed to give your email more emotion. If your sending a friendly note or a love letter try using fuzzmail.org. Check out their examples link at the bottom of the page if your confused.
Since you all have been reading my posts probably wondering where I come up with these websites to share, I want to give you a little info on myself, my personality, and why I do this. I feel like every blogger at some point should share who they are. First, I like to write, second, I pretty much sit at my computer all day until I go to sleep, and last, I really like diet coke. All of that combined means I find some pretty damn cool stuff on the web. I am one of the founders of BonzoBox, I felt there was a strong need for a social homepage online. I wanted something fun, something sleek, something organized. So far I’m happy. I’m in my early 20’s so I have a lot of energy and excitement so if I get a little wordy in my posts its because I’m really into what I’m writing. I SUCK, let me repeat, I SUCK at spelling. I love the part in Billy Madison when Adam Sandler spells chair, C H A R E. So if I spell something wrong post a comment, I’m always up for a little learning and a little criticism. I’m a little bit sarcastic most of the time but try and control myself in my posts but if a bit of opinion comes out, don’t be offended or be offended either way works. I really don’t like things that don’t make any logical sense. Like this trend of wearing sunglasses at night indoors. I was watching the ESPY’s…way too many indoor at night at a show sunglasses on. Anyways, i choose most sites that i suggest carefully making sure that the majority of users will like them, use them, and add them to their dashboard. i also don’t like capitalizing my i’s. Thats it for now ; ) . Keep checking back for cool new stuff.
28. Thats the number of social network accounts I have online. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Blogger, ActiveRain, Plurk the list goes on and on. Now I know 28 is pretty absurd but it’s part of what I do and how I stay up with the latest social media trends online. I’m guessing you have more than just a Facebook. If so, and your sick of updating each different site throughout the day or week, try out Ping.fm. This site is cool! It lets you hook into all of your social media accounts at once and will update them all at the same time. It makes managing social networks so easy. Link into to 50 different social networks at once (although we will consider you a little bit nuts if you have 50 social networking accounts). It’s simple, easy, and worth it. Check it and save yourself some time.
