[Because Thursday didn't have the same ring.]
I’ve decided to do a new little weekly featurette here. Because I read a lot of little interesting (some not so much interesting) nuggets on the internet and I don’t really have an appropriate outlet to share them.
I could share them on Facebook, but sometimes when people do that I get annoyed. Don’t ask me why. I just do. Especially if it is political. Boy howdy, I get annoyed with the political facebook postings.
Firstly, let me tell you about my latest iphone app discovery: Read It Later.
It is an app you install in your web browser and it syncs with your phone so that you can read any website on your phone, even if you don’t have an internet connection. It’s great – no ads, no connecting, and you hit a little checkbox when you finish reading, and voila! It’s gone. From the phone, from the computer, from your brain (if you so desire.)
You can also categorize (I think they call it “tagging”, but I’m not that cool yet) articles that you don’t want to delete. And they all include the link to the original website.
Pinterest, in case you haven’t heard of it (aka you live in a box) is….well, you’ve heard of it. It has been gaining in popularity for the past year, but has exploded in the past six months. (I like to think the explosion coincided with my joining it at about that time….which, clearly, is no coincidence. Ahem.)
But I’m not telling you about Pinterest. I’m telling you about the newest Pinner. The coolest Pinner. The Pinner we all refer to as “Mr. President”
Just started on Tuesday, I read about it that very on the Obama blog (yes, I subscribe and read Obama’s blog) and then yesterday it was on Jezebel. The president on crafts, DIY, and cooking? You better believe I started following him stat.
More random articles I’ve read:
Chocolate makes you thinner! Pass me the M&Ms, thanks.
Can’t decide between tea or coffee? Have them both! At the same time!
All those excuses you have for not gardening? Boloney, says Eatocracy.
It’s not all about the ADD-micro-internet-”blurp” style articles here though. I read books too.
I just got three new Kindle library loaners in as many days. I’ve got some reading to do.
What have you been reading lately? Books? Good articles? Do you post political musings on facebook?
