Love is Respect

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

This is a cause I can really get behind. As a survivor of dating abuse, I know now how much this sort of site could have helped me when I was in the midst of it. Being a teenager is a hard time – you have all those hormones rushing, peer pressure, and you can easily find yourself in a tough spot.

But now there’s help, this site can… Continue reading

Trek Tech

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Excuse me while I nerd out for today. Thursday marks the release of the Star Trek movie reboot, and while I’m a mite apprehensive about the film itself, I think that the plethora of tech articles out there that showcase Trek technology are just too good to pass up! It’s amazing how much real life has grown to emulate science fiction, and Gene Roddenberry’s classic series, one that has… Continue reading

Open With

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

You know the one thing that can drive me absolutely batty in no time flat is downloading something, and then after the wait, I go to open and it tells me that it doesn’t know what program to open it with.

Book Glutton

Friday, May 1st, 2009

I am an avid reader. I just wish there were more hours in a day available for reading! But what I love more than just reading, is sharing my thoughts about what I’ve read. Sharing a reading experience with other people is awesome, because it allows you to see the material you just read through someone else’s perspective. It can be eye-opening and thought provoking.

Here at Book Glutton… Continue reading

Tartan maker

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

I thought this was a fun little site, and couldn’t wait to share it with you. The application is super easy to use too! There are four slider bars, three color squares, and two styles of orientation.

I like to start off with the color squares. Click the color square next to each band slider and select the color you want that band of color to be. The square… Continue reading

Artocracy

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Artocracy

This is an interesting art site. Here you can view art, download free art, find art to purchase affordably (you never know what may move you), talk about art, and even submit art.

I’m always torn about posting art sites, because while they are usually incredible, most artists are selling their work on their site (as well they should). I usually consider it non-commercial enough if you can… Continue reading

Monday, April 20th, 2009

Do you ever find that you’re curious as to what things cost? For example: How much would it end up costing you if you filed your taxes late? Or how much does a personal trainer really cost?

Second Picture

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Welcome to one of the best Digital Art, Photography, and Design tutorial sites I’ve come across.

One of my pet peeves is going to a tutorial site on design or photographs that just looks ugly, you may have good information but if you’re not putting your own tips into practice who is going to put any faith in what you have to say.

So I’m giving this site very high… Continue reading

I think this site is a blessing to parents who have children with disabilities. It provides them with role models that they can look at who have made a success out of their life in spite of whatever disability they have had to face. I know as a child it would have given me hope.
