Sites of the Week: January 27, 2013

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in s moment of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Factoid: The average office worker spends 650 hours a year—28% of working hours—reading and writing e-mails.

Now on to this week’s sites.  This week, I’m sending out three ‘Site of the Week’ recommendations.

Sittercity

http://www.sittercity.com

Do you need a sitter or nannie? If not, perhaps you’re interested in offering these services yourself. Sittercity offers a nationwide service that matches experienced babysitters and nannies in your area who are a minimum of 18 years old. Sittercity offers detailed profiles, background checks, references and reviews and partners with the Red Cross on health issues. Launched in 2001, Sittercity now has over two million caregiver profiles nationwide. A total of 25 cities are listed. If yours isn’t listed, there’s a search for your city. Registration is free.

 

LowCards.com

http://www.lowcards.com

LowCards.com is the leading consumer resource for credit card information.  Since 2000, LowCards.com has offered trustworthy research on thousands of credit card offers. You’ll find lists of the best cards in each category: Low Interest Credit Cards, Balance Transfer Cards, Airline/Hotel/Gas Cards, Cash Back Cards and other types.

 

OpenTable

http://www.opentable.com

The OpenTable site allows you to make reservations at your favorite restaurant. It’s easy, free and your reservation is confirmed. The site features 26,000 restaurants both across the Unites States and many international ones–although I afraid none in Italia or Harrogate, UK.
