Handy Tool: CatchFree.com

As I am sure you have noticed, NighLon has a new look.

Even though I had been wanting to redesign, I accidentally changed my them (more on that and tips later). I wasn’t going to take on that challenge quite yet because I am participating in The SITS Girls 31 Days to Build a Better Blog.  I have learned many things, and this is just the start of the second week. This week, I am taking a “look under the hood” of NighLon. This will include: checking for broken links, creating a best of page, making NighLon mobile friendly, and some other nitty gritty stuff. (I promise that you guys will benefit!)

I have already made some great blogging buddies and have some project in mind to work with them on. These guys have inspired me to write this post. We have all had so much fun sharing our tips, tools, secrets, and favorite websites.

Today, I am sharing one of my favorite websites, that I only discovered this week. I am already addicted.

Catchfree.com is basically my new go-to site. Catch free highlights the best of the web. There’s a catch though: Its only free services. AMAZING! Their tagline describes it perfectly: Perform everyday tasks for free.

One of the features I really like about it is that Its not just site-owner opinion, users also rate services and give critiques.  You can even narrow searches down and see how closely the service matches your criteria. I have only begun to explore. This will definitely be my first stop when searching for useful web services.

Google: Watch out, I won’t be spending as much time sweet-talking you!

Some of the services featured on CatchFree are:

listen to children’s books

backup computer files

share files

build a website

build a landing page

creating surveys

I stress that this is just a very few services highlighted at Catchfree.com

To all my readers (and SITSTAS) I hope you find this as beneficial as I do.

Highlights from Christmas & A Gift

Christmas 2011 was extremely exciting for me.

This was the first year that my son had any clue what was going on, so that was extremely exciting.

He is only 15 months old and received a guitar collection, and MEGA BLOCKS, of course!

My husband rocks and I got a new camera, computer, and other awesome gadget!

Yes, readers of Nighlon will benefit from this.

I want in Triberr & Another Gift for You!

I discovered something today.

It may just be the best thing  since Twitter!

source: Triberr

I had heard of triberr.com before, but really hadn’t given it much thought.

(enter the  gets distracted by shiny things side of me)

Earlier today, I was playing on Klout, and ended up on triberr.com.

I have no idea how I got there, just that a lot of clicks were involved!

I start looking into it, and I am totally dumbfounded. It seems absolutely amazing.

Basically, it is a community where bloggers support and encourage eachother.

 Triberr in their own words:

“Triberr is a blogging community that solves the number one problem that bloggers have. We do that by allowing small and medium size bloggers to come together and let them tap into each other’s audiences automagically.”

Amazing, right!

Why didn’t I think of this?

OH yeah, I’m distracted by shiny things.

Anyway. I try to sign up and guess what….

I have to have an invite code!

So to sum up this post:

If anyone has an invite for me, please feel free to share!

Here is a Christmas frame for you!

I have skipped the blog of the day for a few days because I have something special lined up!

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
