1. A Photo of a Victoria Crowned Pigeon
Snapped it with my iPhone when it decided to play ball and sit on a fence. To give you an idea of the size of these birds, I would say they are about the size of a smallish chicken – although a lot of it is that amazing crest.
That’s not red eye from a flash (I didn’t use flash) – that’s the colour of their eyes.
Postach.io is interesting.
You can create a site on a subdomain.
You sign up to it and connect your Evernote account.
That creates a folder on your Evernote account.Then, when you add a note to that folder in Evernote and tag it with ‘publish’, it creates a post on your subdomain.
So it’s not database driven like WordPress.
It’s a static site that updates from your Evernote folder. That is, it updates from the sync’d Evernote folder, not your local application.
There are a number of different themes – some nice-looking ones. And you can play with the CSS if you want.
And it’s free, with the option to sign up for a premium account that gives you the option to have more people join in on a collective account.
It might be a nice idea for a business that wants various members to add posts. They don’t need to log in to the site – all they have to do is create posts on their own Evernote application, tag is with ‘publish’, and sync.
I can’t think of anything else that offers that?
3. Atlantic Noir Tumblr Theme
The first Tumblr theme I would consider paying money for. Not that there aren’t other nice ones, but this one jumped out at me because when I saw it on New York Through My Lens I thought it looked like a ‘site’ – an actual site rather than just a Tumblr stream.
Maybe I would completely rethink that if I went back and looked at more Tumblr themes, but maybe it illustrates something that web designers and anyone promoting a product could benefit from, which is seeing it in action rather than seeing a demo.
This is the theme and then the blurb from Style Hatch:
Atlantic Noir is an elegant and modern premium Tumblr theme by Style Hatch with full control over the color scheme and typography. With a fully responsive design Atlantic Noir looks amazing in the browser or on mobile devices. Change up your color scheme, integrate your Typekit account and customize the 60+ appearance options.
Free content curation / clipping / something or other / service.
Uses a bookmarklet from the browser or email address from a mobile to save pages, notes, etc.
What is the advantage over using, Postach?
No load on Evernote sync server
Clips the whole page rather than a description and a link
No back up and it’s all on someone else’s server.
The ‘read later’ function from Instapaper Instapaper clips web pages.
Pinboard Pinboard users can bookmark everything there and because it is a paid account (lifetime account for one payment) it may be more reliable that say, Delicious or Diigolet – maybe.
