It’s all FREE!
I’ve discovered so many wonderful books, articles, apps, and courses available for free lately that it just seems crazy not to start sharing them with you.
So now there is a new section in Inspired Journeys/Hidden Treasure and it’s called ‘freebies’.
As I discover new things I’ll post about them, but keep checking back to the freebie section if you want to find something inspiring for not one cent.
1. idonethis has just published an ebook called ‘The Busy Person’s Guide to the Done List’. It talks about the effectiveness and ineffectiveness of to do lists and what can be achieved with a done list. It’s a pretty interesting read.
2. Princeton University is offering a free six week online course in Buddhism and Modern Psychology. It started on the 20th of March, so if you’re interested, sign up now. You can easily play catch-up on the first two weeks. Week three starts shortly. I’ve completed the first two weeks and am really enjoying it. There are online lectures, interviews with different Buddhist practitioners, and plenty of relevant reading material provided.
3. The healthier I get the more interested I am in healthy eating. The Stone Soup Blog is about helping you to become the healthiest cook you can be, without spending hours in the kitchen. I don’t know about you, but that combo definitely appeals to me. Most of the recipes contain 5 ingredients and can be made in minutes. The author is Jules Clancy, a fun loving Australian. When you sign up for her newsletter you receive a free electronic recipe book that is literally bursting with goodness.
4. Every year, more than 2,000 acts swarm to South by Southwest — and every year, NPR Music painstakingly handpicks 100 of the music festival’s best discoveries for a downloadable six-hour sampler. They call it The Austin 100, and it’s virtually guaranteed to contain something you’ll love that you didn’t know existed. Be quick- last download day is today!!
5. Free Photo Editing with PicMonkey. And to quote directly from the site “Create the most eye-exploding photo you’ve ever made, with our photo editor. Add text, effects, or overlays. Wah-lah!” For a glimpse of what you can do with the editing software, check out the ‘Who Doesn’t Love Free Stuff?’ image that goes with this article – I created it in PicMonkey.
Well, that’s it for today. I’ve already popped a few other goodies in the freebies section so go and check it out.
