Anna, Flickr and Blingo
Anna got it into her head that she wanted to start using Flickr a bit more and so I helped her out by adding a little flickr strip to her blog showing you the three most recent photos she has uploaded. I also showed her a cool extension to iPhoto that just lets you export straight to Flickr.
So, now she’s out of control.
Speaking of out of control, check out these seedlings that she planted a month ago.
Lastly, check out Blingo. I say this because I wouldn’t lead you astray; it’s neat. Blingo is a search engine based on Google, so the results are quality. But every time you search, you randomly enter to win some sort of prize. Tonight, I was searching for “Mutt”, and instead of the results I got a message telling me I won a movie ticket. Neat! When I filled out my claim form, I chose to get an iTunes gift certificate instead of a movie ticket, since Lent just started and I’m cutting back on the movies.
Added bonus: Blingo has a “Friends” program that is kind of snazzy. If you sign up as a friend of me and win something, then I win it too. If I win something, like I did today, Greg, the gent who I signed up as a friend of, wins the same thing as well. To sign up as my friend, go here. Not interested, no biggie. I’m just trying to spread the love.
