Today I just wanted to highlight a few websites and products that I’m currently in love with. Who knows– maybe one of them will be exactly what you’ve been looking for!
Spotify | Available at spotify.com for Facebook users in the US, this service has pretty much eliminated my need to purchase music anymore. It’s like uncluttered, easy-to-use, ethical Napster (not to date myself with that reference!). With Spotify, I have access to almost all of the world’s recorded music, and I can create playlists galore and explore all I want FOR FREE. It makes finding new music fun instead of expensive or tedious. And every time you listen to a song, money goes to the song’s rights-holder.
Fishpond | I happen to deeply enjoy several Australian authors, and I don’t always like to wait for the US release date (which is sometimes 6-9 months later than the Australian release date!). At fishpond.com, I can order products from other countries and pay NO shipping costs! Incredible, right? Great for books and music not available (or not YET available) in the US.
Fotoflexer | Whenever I need to create or edit images for my blog, I use fotoflexer.com. It is very intuitive and easy to use and has a WIDE variety of available fonts. It is not a perfect replacement of the now-defunct Picnik, but it’s pretty good!
