Web Wanderings

Another short week for me! Last weekend was Buffalo, this weekend I’m headed down to Myrtle Beach, SC for a few days with the family. My friend Molly is coming along too- I’m sure many a shenanigan will ensue.Web Wanderings (1)

So while I get ready to jet off to the airport, here’s a quick little list of some intriguing things from around the web this week.

17 Websites That Will Make You Smarter: I’m always looking to pick up a new trick here and there, and these are some great way to learn. I’m sure you’ve heard of some of these before, but there are some new ones as well.

BuzzFeed Asks Women Why They Take Birth Control: I’m not one to argue politics, but there has been some crazy stuff going on lately. I love that these women (all BuzzFeed employees) take a stance on why they take birth control. There is always more to the story that you might expect.

10 Reasons to Use Vine to Help You Build Your Brand: Vine is a platform that I struggle with. I know that people who do it well get a lot of recognition, but it just seems like such a daunting challenge to create something that will stick. This is a nice list of different ways that brands make it work, some with lots of techniques and some on a simpler base.

Here’s What Happens When Your Joke Goes Massively Viral On Twitter: This makes me chuckle. Jokes on social media follow such odd trends, and it’s interesting to see how this gained such a following so long after it was originally posted. I actually saw this tweet in my feed the other day, so the backstory was even more interesting.

Happy weekend!
