Celebrate The Small Things:June 19, 2015

Is it just me, or do Fridays seem to be arriving faster?


Not much is new for me. But over the week, I found some interesting links that I want to share.

Freerice.com
Visitors answer questions on whatever topic they choose (the default is English vocabulary), and the advertising revenue is used to buy rice for hungry people.

Oh Baby! Names
Not only does it tell you the meaning, popularity, and origin of the names, but it also gives you trivia about well-known people or characters who have that name.

Word Counter
Should come in handy.

Break Movies
Part of a larger website, this offers free movies to watch online. I haven't gotten a chance to watch any yet, but since it doesn't seem to make a fuss about mobile devices, it should make a good alternative to Hulu for me.


Also found a set of pretty cool social media icons for authors for 27 different sites.


So how is your week going?

Gonna check out the word counter thing, as I never know how people do that...sometimes you see reference to word count for a blog hop and I'm like.....hun? Yes, Friday's come quicker it seems to me too.

@ Suzanne Furness
Glad you think so.

@ Sandy
Having a word counter should be helpful.

Thanks for all the links. It's so nice of you to spot interesting things and share. Most of us don't have much time to find these things for ourselves. Have a lovely weekend! :)

The word counter sounds helpful...and the movie thing distracting ;) But we all need those too!

M.R. R. said...

@ Lexa Cain
And most of these I found through other people. You enjoy your weekend too.

@ T. Drecker
Yep.

Hey! Thanks for that movies link. They don't have a lot of good movies, but I did see that they have "Winter's Bone." That's Academy Award caliber.

@ Jolie du Pre
Even if most of the movies suck, the few good ones available for free make it worth it.
