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.
