Sunday Links #1
Alright, as many other bloggers seem to do, I am starting a link dump post. Every Sunday, I'll post my findings of the week to spread the word and share some love. I also plan to do themed weeks, but we'll see about that later. Read on for my picks of the week!
This week I will just round up the best links I have found this month, since I have been slow with my feed reading and random browsing recently. It's the first week anyhoo, and they are worth a look!
- Youtube: mememolly - I stumbled upon this girl's profile while looking for new things to watch and, after being completely confused by her "777" video, I watched all her videos. She seems pretty cool, the videos are nice to watch, a bit random at times, and since she is from England she had certain speech similarities to Sasha, which was kinda funny (to me). She is also arranging a UK Youtube meet, so if you are in the Thorpe Park area and a Youtuber it should be fun to go to. It's on July 25th, this coming Wednesday.
- Youtube: Nothing Like Life - A series by Youtuber sigafoo (Derek), who is a funny and pretty cool guy. I've only watched the first couple of eps, but basically its a vlog of his life that is pretty well made, more serious than his other videos. I can't really say much more than that until I have watched more of the videos, but he's a good guy and you should at least check out his sigafoo account.
- Tool: Copyscape - Copyscape is a search engine for copies of your content. You plug in your pages URL, and it will scout the web for anywhere else that content has been posted. Originally, I thought it was a tool for searching for copies of your actual site (design, mark-up, etc) but it turns out not! Though, the lack of that gave me an idea to produce a collaborative art, design, site (etc) theft finding site, where people could post up information about copies of a person's work they have found, but I dropped that idea because...well..why don't they just tell the original creator? If you're a writer or just want to see if content is posted in other places, this is the tool for you.
- Tool: Who is Hosting This? - Ever wondered who hosts your favourite sites? Found a site that loads pretty fast and doesn't seem to have down time? Find out using this tool, punch in the site URL and it will provide the company name plus a link to their site. Very handy.
- Friend Watch: Rua's Blog - My good friend Rua recently switched blog platform to Wordpress, producing his own nice and simple design for it in the process. While he doesn't update it too frequently (nudge nudge), his blog has featured posts such as "Lindsay Lohan's end", the BBC's Heroes trailer and, most recently, perverted royalty.
Usually, I'll have a bit more than this but, as I said, I am behind with my hunting. The videos should keep you entertained for an hour or two though, they are pretty short but there is quite a few. I'll clean up my act for next Sunday, and hope the week brings some interesting things!
Author's Note: I realize this is being posted on Monday, I did have this all typed up on Sunday but didn't publish. I was going to check it and publish just before I went to bed, but I was completely knackered and forgot. Forgive me, please!
