Awesome Audio of the Week: NPR on your iPodDid you know you can download NPR’s Fresh Air and This American Life shows onto your iPod? You can.

Download a few NPR podcasts and listen to them on your iPod during your next hike, flight or lengthy wait in a post office line. Download “Fresh Air” podcasts here: tinyurl.com/yvtswf and “This American Life” podcasts here: http://www.thisamericanlife.org.Online Tool of the Week: BusinessCardLandThough I’d of course prefer that you use timeforcake the next time you decide you need new business cards, I’m well aware that many businesses’ marketing budgets are stretched thin. Enter BusinessCardLand.

The creators of http://www.businesscardland.com have built a website that allows non-designer individuals and business owners to design and build their very own business cards – for free (assuming you can print them out on your home or office printer). The site also offers tips on successful designs, paper types and locating great fonts, photos and graphics for your cards.Parents’ Website of the Week: Safe2read.comFor a nominal fee each year, parents can purchase up to 10 safe e-mail addresses that allow for automatic supervision appropriate to their children’s age. Decide once if each of your child’s e-mail friends is suitable; after that, parents are “only alerted when strangers come calling.”

Safe2read.com is extremely easy to use, handles all good and bad e-mails automatically, and allows children to familiarize themselves with e-mail communications without the concerns of receiving adult spam or advertisements each week – all without parents having to supervise and constantly look over their shoulders. Take a look at http://www.safe2read.com.See you next Friday, everyone! Oh, and stop by http://www.timeforcake.com sometime and say hi. We just launched our all-new site a couple weeks ago. Let us know what you think.Based in Frisco, eRin pheiL is the primary creative force behind timeforcake (www.timeforcake.com). She can be reached via phone at (970) 668-0709 or e-mail at info@timeforcake.com.
