Wakelet: Share Visually-Engaging Stories

Storify is dead - long live Wakelet! This article features Wakelet, a similar program as the now-defunct Storify. But Wakelet is different in many aspects, and I bet it will stay for many years with us. Firstly it comes with many features Storify has lacked. It is already a full-fledged tool for content curation, presentation, and sharing. Secondly, it has a steadily growing user base where already some of the world’s most prominent organizations are using Wakelet. And the best of it: There is no Premium price model: Wakelet is free in all its functionality.

Grammarly improves your writing

The article reports on my experiences with the premium version of Grammarly, an AI-powered web service for grammar and spell checking. As this is going to be a very positive review, I want to disclose that I am not affiliated in any way with Grammarly Inc., the enterprise behind this product.

Disqus installation again

A short personal note on my tutorial on Disqus installation: I have used for my screenshots, not this docdock but the hugo-academic theme. I have changed from docdock to hugo-academic and now (2017-05-31) I am back at docdock again. I will explain the reason for this twofold change in one of my next blog post. I am also planning to update text and screenshots to the new blogdown versions.

Alternatives for Disqus?

Disqus is a top-rated service for hosting and managing comments. But it has as an external service several disadvantages which oppose the philosophy of static websites diametrically. I discuss some alternatives for integrating discussion fora with static websites.
