Interesting Internet Finds – WE June 6, 2014

I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

Cathy tells about the writing prompt site Creative Copy Challenge’s history, a bit about what it entails, and her first post since the restart. Check out the comments for each challenge for submissions, or links to submissions. Try one of the challenges yourself. There is a great bunch of writers who take part.
I too love the site, and am glad for its return, you can read my submissions at http://sefccw.wordpress.com/tag/creative-copy-challenge/.

Disclaimer

I have not necessarily checked each link or process out, but if listed I have used the site enough to trust them.

That said, please let me know if something doesn’t work correctly, or the listed site has incorrect information.
