Craigslist started out as a list of items for sale, and over its lifetime it has really stayed just a list of items. If you have ever tried posting a number of Craigslist ads before, you know how annoying it can be. There is little available with which to format your ads, and the few tools Craigslist provides are difficult to use, at best. Some posters have nicer looking graphics that are inserted into the post, but those are a challenge to make on your own. So how does the everyday Craigslist user make nice-looking postings? A new service called PostMaven just might be the answer.
PostMaven is a beta service which, for the time being, allows users to make official looking Craigslist ads from templates. After using the easy service to make an ad that meets your specifications, you can then export the code from the template and use it for your final posting on Craigslist. You can make ads for an array of goods and services, so stick with me to learn more about PostMaven.

What looks like a little bit more ends up being a lot more under many circumstances.

SmartAsset throws normal ‘mortgage calculators’ out the window, casting aside the claim that investment are mere percentage calculations. What about taxes, the increasing equity of the property, related expenses and closing costs? That all counts too, and SmartAsset will help you calculate the real world consequences of your decisions.

There are millions of websites in existence and many more are created and released each day. However, if you’re looking to find out about the credibility of a website or just what other people think about it, you can always count on your trusty friend Google. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to find real reviews as most people only take to talking about things on the web if they’re deeply dissatisfied with something.
That’s where Doogl comes in. Doogl allows any web users to easily activate their bookmarklet on a website and begin discussion. With an emphasis on expression, you can always find honest opinions of the website you’re browsing in a matter of clicks.
