How This MakeUseOf Writer Procrastinates In 8 Easy Steps

As you may know, MakeUseOf isn’t staffed by robots that churn out articles daily through an automatic system. All of us have our own methods of getting down to the writing. Since I’m not a full-time freelance writer, it takes me a little extra oompah to get myself started. With that in mind (and based on what I’m doing right now), I figured I’d give you a little insight into what I’m doing. Basically, here’s how I procrastinate.

6 Of The Most Unusual Products On Vat19

We’ve briefly talked about Vat19 on MakeUseOf, so you may know a little about it already. Basically, the site sells very interesting items and gifts. On top of that, they make a video of each item that is typically quirky, and although it is pretty much a commercial, it’s worth watching. Here on MakeUseOf, we like the unusual.

5 Facebook Notifications That I Can’t Stand [Opinion]

We recently talked about an easy way to clear up email notifications, but that doesn’t mean Facebook notifications themselves aren’t still a problem. These notifications are great when they actually pertain to you and are relevant to what is currently going on in your life, but sometimes they simply don’t. It gets really annoying, and yes… this is all silly.

7 Of The Strangest Services Offered On Fiverr

I recently found out all about Fiverr – a website that offers odd jobs to people for only five bucks a pop (with the occasional paid extras) – and as you may be able to guess, a site like this is going to offer a lot of similarly strange services. So I did what anyone would do, and I jumped right into finding some of the weirdest stuff that Fiverr has to offer.

4 Rules To Ignore When Writing Your Personal Blog [Opinion]

Let’s be straight – blogging is fun and blogging is cool, there’s no doubt about that. Of course, it can also be used by middle-school girls who believe that everyone in the world wants to know about the new pair of shoes they just bought. With this being said, I haven’t really told you anything you should ignore when writing your personal blogs.

5 Tips For Starting Your Personal Blog [Opinion]

As an occasional personal blogger, I have seen a lot of other folks in the blogosphere who just want to write personal publications that are not exactly meant for making money. I really like that, actually. We need more people who just want to share their stories in this world. However, some of you may be wanting to start your own blog, and I thought I’d drop a few of my personal tips.

3+ Stickies Shortcuts You Should Use [Mac]

Based on what I’ve seen, Stickies (the desktop version – not the dashboard) is a built-in Mac app that doesn’t seem to get a whole lot of love. However, in all truth, it’s actually an extremely useful tool whether you want to use it for a long-term project or something simply short term. As a virtual form of the standard office sticky note, it definitely packs a punch.

Find Rare And Unique Clothing With Wanelo

I recently discovered a site called Wanelo (pronounced “wah-nee-lo,” for want, need, and love) that brings together a ton of rare and unique clothing options in one place. I’d liken this site to being a fashion aggregator, utilizing a social networking type of system to bring its users together so that they can share links of clothing and accessories from all over the Internet. The catch is quite simply this – the clothing is primarily for women.

3 Effective Sites For Learning After-Effects To Use In Your Film Projects

Right after one of my last articles about online video-making communities, I got to thinking about how special effects is the big thing these days, and over time, I’ve been building my stockpile of tutorial sites to choose from. Veterans of After Effects may very well already know of these sites, but I’m sure that there are plenty of folks around here wanting to learn as much as they can.

Secretly Check Out Your Reddit-Using Friends with Reddit Investigator

A few of us here on MakeUseOf like Reddit, and apparently so do quite a few other people out on the Internet. Some of those people like it so much that they even create their own web apps and phone apps to use the site in much more creative ways. Once again, we have another unusual way to use Reddit, and this time, it comes in the easy-to-digest form of the Reddit Investigator.
