Top Websites of the Decade

The worldwide web affects the life of millions of people, and its influence grew greatly during the past decade. A worldwide online classified advertisement site, the best known search engine in the world, the most popular video website in the world, and the world's largest online encyclopedia made up some of the top websites for the decade. What sites were the most important for the decade of the 2000's depends on what Internet list you read, but this article contains some of the top sites, in no particular order of importance.

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. One can find or sell almost anything, give something away for free or get something for free, buy or rent a house, search the personals, or do any number of other things.

For those who want to know about the quality of products or service they will receive at a particular business, Yelp.com was one of the top websites of the decade. The site contains reviews by ordinary people of restaurants, spas, nightclubs, places to shop, and many others, all across the country. If you use the site, you will no longer trust the opinions of one person's opinions before going to a particular establishment.

One site that is on more than one top ten list is Flickr.com, which was founded in 2004. The site …

Photographic Resource Websites for Freelance Writers

A picture is worth a thousand words – or at least it's worth including in an article.

No matter how well written an article is the addition of a few snappy visuals will not only enhance it, but even get some people to take a look who might have passed it right on by. The trouble is finding the right visual assist. Where do you get these visuals? Film or televison articles can be easy – movie posters or stills from a production usually do just fine.

Snapping a few digital photos on your own is always a great way to go, but that can't always deliver for your project if it's way beyond your physical location or timeframe. You may be doing an overview of America's entrance into World War II or the launch of the first satellite into orbit. Your photographic skills are polished, but they're not magical. What next? Call in Harry Potter for help? Maybe, if you can't get him, or enter free or public domain photo websites.

Here are a few I use. They usually have what I need to dress up an article.

MorgueFile

Hands down one of the very best photographic websites around. The search engine is easy and it offers lots of selection. This is one stop shopping for me many times. You'll find it all and if they don't have it, you don't need it. But seriously, it's an amazing resource for all your photographic needs. I recommend it highly.

Romance and Mystery Novel Review Web Sites

With my family being such avid readers, particularly my daughter, I recently discovered two websites that can help with our reading quest. They are www.theromancereader.com and www.themysterreader.com

My local librarian had just discovered these two web sites, and was sharing information with her patrons about these two Internet addresses. As we are weekly regulars at the library, she let my family know about them. When I arrived home, I was sure to check them out.

The first one is www.theromancereader.com. My daughter, thank goodness, is not yet into these types of novels. So this site was purely for my interest.

The main purpose of the web site is to offer reviews of top romance novels. The reviews are broken down into three categories: historical, contemporary, and fantasy. Their rating system is unique, with hearts being used. Five hearts is a definite keeper, four hearts means the book is recommended, three hearts is acceptable, two means think twice, and one hearts tells the reader not to bother reading the book. They also break the books down into categories. These categories are: G for love scenes but no sex; PG for sex scenes that aren't explicit; PG 13 for a little bit more descriptive, but not yet graphic ; R for very descriptive and lots of love scenes; and NC17 for a book you wouldn't want your kids to read, or your spouse or – well you get the idea. I thought it was very unique that the reviews and ratings were …

Making Waves with Web ERP

Web ERP (enterprise resource planning) is here and it's popular. Small businesses have found what they have been waiting for. A software system that can provide them with the applications and tools they need to conduct business successfully. That's what they get with enterprise software; an all-inclusive, distributed, one piece software system. This is the software that can run all aspects of the business and do with calculated efficiency. It will administer the accounting component, sales and marketing, supply chain management, and human resources; it will coordinate manufacturing and customer relationship management; it will manage your e-commerce operation. This is the system that supports the enterprise in every area.

Small business now has a solution for the enterprise, not just for disparate units within the business. This is the software system that unites the enterprise and brings all staff together as one. Information and data is no longer sequestered in some inaccessible silo. It's available to all designated staff whenever they need it. So when you need to check up on the supply chain or confirm if an order has been processed, you can do it in real-time, with the access and visibility that you need in order to get the job done successfully. Every unit of the business has access to the same information and data.

If you've ever had to run around seeking information or wasted time calling around or sending memos in order to get a piece of information or data, you'll be pleased to know that …
