Slight change of plans and fun new applications!

Plans have changed, but only slightly. Instead of leaving at the end of August for Istanbul, I will instead be leaving at the end of October for a November TEFL course. I am going to be working in marketing/promotions for my Aunt’s new business venture that includes a book tour in September. More information to follow in later postings and hopefully some of you will be able to attend one of the events!

In my search for some interesting applications to assist in promotions and event planning I ran across:

This seems to be a pretty good site for adding and finding events nearby even in international locations. I will be posting some dates and locations for the book tour route over the next couple of months.

Other applications that continue to hold my attention:

1.

There is fantastic art displayed here and also it’s pretty easy to work with the drawing tools. Needless to say, I wasn’t constructing anything even half as good as some of the displayed work, but fun and time consuming nonetheless.

2.
As a friend stated when I mentioned this new application, “the names of these applications are getting to be more and more ridiculous.” Though I kinda agree I still really like this new application quite a lot. Xoopit finds and shares pictures, videos and files buried in your inbox. I discovered some old JROTC pictures that I totally forgot about. The video I posted of the banned Skyy video was shared quite a bit via Xoopit.

3.

Facebook…totally sucks me in. I login and then it’s, “oh, Stacey changed her profile pic.” Next thing you know I am browsing through wedding pictures of some girl who lives in Texas that I have never met. I find myself thinking “nice flowers.” Caption reads “Aren’t they cute together?” and I find myself slowly shaking my head, “yes they are.” Ridiculous.

4.

Though not a social media tool, I have been using the URL compressor quite a bit this week…pretty handy. Take a look at these “before” and “after” celebrity TMZ images that held my attention for way too long via the “compressed URL:” http://ur.lc/2b
