Kevin’s Portal: Site Overhaul Aready Appearing Live


The site overhaul is progressing well – so well in fact that some of it is already live. The amount of time that I have already spent on it I would have thought I’d have made more progress, but the progress made I think is good and so the time well spent. There is so much more to do though – but it is looking good.

Not all of the links in the directory in the left column are working yet. Some are and you’ll be able to get a feel for how the site will look when the overhaul is completed.

Not only is the content that was there before being placed back onto the site, but there is a massive amount of new content being added as well.

Kevin’s Portal: Latest Update


The following links/sites have been added to Kevin’s Portal:

 

Get Satisfaction

Get Satisfaction is a social network for setting up communities. I have essentially joined Get Satisfaction so I can participate in discussions at the Bundlr community on Get Satisfaction. Never-the-less I do have a profile there now:

Evly

Evly is a crowdsourcing platform that I have joined. I am not really sure as to what I will do with this just yet, though I have a few thoughts floating around upstairs.

Kevin’s Portal: Latest Update


I have been tinkering with the web applications and social networks listing on the page. I have decided to add links to all of the sites I use so that any interested visitor can check them out for themselves. I am identifying those sites that I have a public profile on and that I have linked to elsewhere on the page with a simple * at the front of the link. The list is not yet 100% completed – and will end up quite large as I do tend to test and use a large number of sites for one reason or another.

 

Bundlr

I have just started to use the Bundlr social network/web application this evening. This could be a great little tool that will allow me to bundle (hence the name) resources from around the web into collections of curated content. I should hopefully be able to embed this information into other websites in the future. It should be a great tool for some of my other sites and I am already experimenting with it for the kevinswilderness.com site. Links to my Bundlr profile and to Bundlr itself have now been added to Kevin’s Portal.

Evernote

One of the tools I use a lot is Evernote and a link to this tool will be added to Kevin’s Portal tonight also. There are no public profiles for Evernote, though there is the ability to have shared folders and to share individual files with others and other sites. I will use Bundlr to form a curated page for Evernote also so that I can promote this brilliant tool. Evernote is my favourite tool in the cloud and it can be used on all manner of mobile devices and computers.

My Bundlr Evernote page will be at:
