FREE button for your blog!

Recently, I was inspired by the amazing Kaye @ Beautiful Kayekie to develop my own buttons by graphic designing. Her Bloglovin buttons are spectacularly pretty, and I wanted to create something comparable to its beauty. Advertisements

Free High Resolution Stock Photos — An Invaluable Resource

An extremely short post, as these images evidently speak for themselves. Discovered on this lovely blog, I am astounded by the sheer quality in Upsplash‘s photography collection offers. Their license? All photos published on Unsplash are licensed under Creative Commons Zero which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes,…

Lendle: The PERFECT Library for KINDLE Lovers Worldwide (FREE BOOKS!)

Today, I came across a magnificent website that, quite frankly, changed my life. I was scrolling across lending ebooks, and I was considering starting a library of my own (Amazon allows some titles to be lent). However, what I didn’t expect was a wonderfully massive database filled with EVERY book I’ve ever wanted off Amazon….

Changing the World, One Loan at a Time (Kiva – A Online Charity)

Something my mother always taught me is that, when giving away money to people in times of need, always label it as a loan. It doesn’t matter if they are your closest friends, or if you wouldn’t expect it back/don’t want it back anyway. When someone says something is a loan, there is an obligation to pay…

Trello: The Organiser That Keeps Everything Together

Today, I stumbled across an amazing little application and felt the need to share. It is free (there is a premium version, but that’s if you want decorative features), so it’s a risk-free, wonderful organiser. I have worked with many other applications before (such as Wunderlist, Springpad, AnyDo) but I always left them after a…

Stories in Exactly Six Words

Lately, I’ve found myself unable to engage in a book. I don’t know what happened, but my mind keeps shifting elsewhere, and I find myself reading poetry/watching anime/looking up quotes/ reading blog-posts instead. I am sure this is a phase that will soon pass. Anyway, I stumbled across an imaginative site called Six Word Stories…

The Night-Sky, Rain Droplets and City Lights

Anybody who’s seen my Tumblr will recognise my obsession with rain and night-skies. They are absolutely beautiful, simple things in life worth cherishing and remembering. It’s currently raining now. I love rain so much. Today is my first ever “gallery” post, and I hope you’ll like it! It’s am mixture of everywhere I want to…

PaperRater – Automatically Edits Your Essays

I blogged recently about EditMinion, which is an excellent automatic editor for short-stories. But what if we want an overview of our vocabulary, sentence structure data, and how we’re going with our overall paper? Although EditMinion is a wonderful tool for fiction writers and repeating words, it fails to do much else. This is where…

EditMinion – Automatically Edits Your Writing

EditMinion is the best automatic, free website for those who’re making the final touches to, let’s say, a novel/Blog-post, etc. I say final touches because no software of any kind can replace the human eye, or the benefits of another human checking over work. It’s not advisable to depend on this website alone, but it…

GIMP: A Free Photostop Alternative

GIMP, in my opinion, is the ultimate replacement of Photoshop. Then again, I’ve never used Photoshop (properly) so I may be mistaken. But it’s possibly the best freeware out there for graphic designers. I also like Paint.Net (no, not the simplistic Microsoft version, but something else) for editing pictures, but it lacks the ability to create things…

NaNoWriMo: Finish A Novel In A Month

What is NaNoWriMo? I hear you ask. If you’re a writer, or even if you’re a reader of unpublished (and even some published) writers on the internet, you will come across this word. For me, it took about five occurrences before I took an interest in what this strange, unfamiliar (but certainly an acronym) stood for.
