#FF Friday Finds – a few gems I found on the Internet this week

A poem called “I like old things“.


A few graphics from Pinterest that I particularly enjoyed


A free site that checks your site for broken links. It took a while to run, but seeing as my blog has been in existence for twelve years, that is understandable. It is SO frustrating to click on a link that interests you, only to get the dreaded “File not found” error message.

It found 162 broken links on Fictionophile!  I’ll work on looking them up and updating them when I have some free time.

The ITW has announced the finalists for the 2019 Thriller Awards!

Instagram, which now has 700 million users globally, appears to be the social network having the greatest negative effect, according to a new report by the UK’s Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), an independent charity focused on health education.

The findings weren’t all bad. Nearly 70% of respondents reported that they received emotional support on social media when times were tough, and many said their accounts offered a forum for positive self-expression. They were also able to create and maintain relationships online.
