Project Playlist Music Website Review

Style: Project Playlist used to have a black, blue and white layout that was gaudy. The black background made everything else stand out but did not go well with advertisements placed around the website. Since then, Project Playlist has been redesigned and looks much better. The website is cleaner, more organized and easier to navigate. The new color scheme includes variations of blue, yellow and orange. Project Playlist has advertisements but they do not interfere with the content on this website. Many of the site members are featured prominently on the homepage.

Ease of Use: The search feature yields tons of results, even if you are trying to find old songs. You can then create a playlist and add songs immediately by pressing a button that resembles the "plus" sign. There is no need to worry about faulty music tracks interrupting the flow of your playlist. If a song is no longer available, it is automatically skipped on the playlist. The following song on the playlist will start to play automatically.

Project Playlist will also let you know if a music track has malfunctioned or is not available in the search results. However, Project Playlist rarely has faulty tracks in the search results. Prior to the redesign, non-members of this website would have to register in order to build a music playlist. Now, you can build a playlist without having to register but with limited restrictions. While non-members can build a quick playlist on the homepage, only five songs can …

Top 5 Websites for Free Graduation ECards

Top 5 Websites for Free Graduation ECards

Know someone who’s graduating this year? Whether your friend or loved one is graduating from middle school, high school or college, show them how proud you are of their accomplishments by sending a free graduation eCard. eCards are easy, fun and are great do-it-yourself (DIY) mini-projects.

With the rising popularity of eCards, there are many websites from which to choose. After sifting through many of these websites, I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 places to find great free graduation eCards – without the hassle of “free trials”.

  1. Hallmark.com
    The Hallmark name is a staple in the card industry, so it only makes sense that they’ve expanded into the eCard market. Hallmark has many graduation eCards, most of which are free. They offer a plethora of options including flash, interactive and photo slideshow cards. You can find humorous or more sentimentally themed cards. Sending a card is easy – simply choose the design you like, personalize it with a message and pictures (if it’s a slideshow), enter your name and email address, the recipient’s name and email address and hit send. You can choose to send the eCard immediately or choose a date in the future. One of my favorites is the hoops&yoyo graduation card titled “You Graduated!”.
  2. Smilebox
    If you’re looking to send an eCard that is almost completely DIY, this might be the place for you. With Smilebox, you don’t actually create anything online, you download their safe and free software which has hundreds of graduation templates

Pros: This site has just about anything and everything that you could possibly want to know about what's going on with your team and with the stadium. It's got all the dates for training, as well as convenient links down the left hand side where you can choose whatever team you're looking for.

Cons: It's kind of hard to navigate the site and find exactly what you're looking for sometimes.

One website that is at the top of some lists for the top websites is Craigslist.org. What was once a local ad service has become the biggest online classified advertisement service in the world.
