Good Stuff This Week 06 22 2014

Awhile back I started, “Food Cart Fridays” and lost steam. Chock it up to being ”too busy” or perhaps it was about making decisions about priorities. It's been so long I can no longer remember.

But, in an effort to ramp up and try once again to commit to an email newsletter I decided to provide a list of More Good Stuff I discover every week and then some.

The list below is in addition to the Good Stuff I send to my wonderful subscribers which I save specifically for them. Scroll to the bottom to find out more about my email newsletter.

Enjoy this week’s More Good Stuff! (I publish every Sunday.)

Color Inspiration

Check out this fun color inspiration website where that Nigel Dennis created to share color palettes inspired by the world around him. You can also buy a limited edition poster and limited edition printed books.

I'm not even halfway through Making Your Life As An Artist by Andrew Simonet but so far, I'm enjoying the different take and insights he offers to artists of every type.

Here's an excerpt from the book about the artist’s challenge:

Build lives as artists that are balanced, productive, and sustainable.
— Andrew Simonet

The website, ArtistsU, also offers a nice selection of tools and resources for artists. Follow on Twitter: @andrewsimonet.

H/T SPARK.

Gaug.es: A Reason to Ditch Google Analytics?

Do you find Google Analytics tiresome or too hard to figure out? Here’s an easier analytics tool called gauge.es. I recently signed up and find it easier to understand. Plus it gives you real-time data.


Interested in More Good Stuff?

Sign up for my weekly newsletter, “Tea & Chocolate”.

Every week I send an email to my wonderful subscribers of Good Stuff I collect and find useful, interesting and worth knowing. It ranges from typography to apps, videos to books and so much more.

Tea & Chocolate is a list of Good Stuff not available for anyone but subscribers. You may find a tweet or two from me about my finds and think of Tea & Chocolate as a nice, neat collection straight to your inbox. Not sure? Check out the archives.
