A while ago I attended a fabulous conference and learned about a really great website (I've been meaning to highlight FOREVER) called:
I love the concept of this site! The idea is we all get on and submit our favorite things (products, solutions to problems, specific people at companies, etc) so that when we're out looking for something we can easily gain ideas from each other.
For example there is a 'solution' on there about stinky towels, or a recommendation to a fantastic local photographer, or website to find the best deals for ___(you name it!).
Now see what makes this even better is the more friends you tell, the more people are filling out their stuff, and the more friends they're telling, and the more we're all helping each other out!
Like say I go get my car repaired by an awesome mechanic at a shop called "Awesome Car Place" and the dude that works on my car is named "Awes Ome" so I jump on Mom Faves and write up a little rave review. Then my friend has the same experience. She jumps on Mom Faves, 'faves' my already written review and then our neighbor down the street sees it on there and then knows where to not only take her car but who to ask for to get the best service. It's genius I'm telling you! (Watch the video, it explains it a bit better than I can.)
Have a look around. Find me (cranberryfries), friend me, fave me, and see the stuff I've faved. Get an idea of the site and then start submitting your own favorite stuff.
