5 handy websites for developers

There are so many sites out there that are helpful tools, and I have plenty of them in my bookmarks! However, today I will introduce you to five of the websites I have favorited for quick access, and I hope at least a couple of them will be useful to you.

1.) JotForm - This site is a tool for an easy form builder. You can make contact forms, satisfaction surveys, job applications, time sheets, and party RSVP’s, just to name a few. You can also use the blank form and mold it into anything you want, and have it include dropdown menus, checkboxes, file uploaders, buttons, text, and more. In your creation you can add a captcha, a password box, birthdate picker, and dozens more. Using JotForm, you can create almost any kind of form or survey imaginable. It’s a pretty handy tool, especially if you need to make something for your website.

2.) Alphabetize - I found this one over at MAMD. You can paste any list into it and it will arrange every item to alphabetical order. It can also make everything lowercase, capitalize the first words in your list, remove duplicates, reverse the whole list, randomize, add any word or symbol of your choice to the start or end of each word, or a mixture of all those things at once. Also a very powerful tool this site provides, it can strip the HTML from whatever you paste into it! Check it out and see for yourself. ;)

3.) Keyword Suggestion Tool - This is a free tool that lets you enter any keyword, and it will give you up to 100 related keywords and an estimate of their DAILY search volume. This can be extremely helpful to bloggers, especially if you want to get ranked for your keywords and include important keywords in your posts.

4.) Hundreds of Free Icons - At this site you will find so many icons you can use that are from the Crystal Clear icon set. Icons for actions, applications, devices, file systems, KDM, and MIME-types are all here. You can use the small version of the icon, or click on it and get the larger version. I don’t know how often you’ll be needing any of these but when you do this can be very helpful.

5.) Cliché Finder - If you like to make your content interesting, then you might want to consider adding some clichés to spice it up a bit. You can search for any word that may appear in your cliché, or you can select to view ten random clichés. For example, when I clicked to see some random clichés, the first one it gave me was “faster than a jackrabbit”. This might not be something you use that often, but if you ever want to say something and make it a little more exciting, this could come in handy.

There you have it! Five handy-dandy websites you can use. I will try to share helpful sites in list posts like this from time to time. I hope any of these might be useful to you in some way.
