There is so much more cool stuff in the world besides cool tools. Every week Mark, Claudia and I (the team behind the Cool Tools website) encounter great podcasts, bingeable video series, amazing people to follow, memorable destinations, perfect tips, and many other types of things besides tools we’d like to recommend. Thus was born Recomendo a year and half ago. Conceived as a weekly email, Recomendo now has about 15,000 subscribers. (Sign up here, free.)
We thought that after 73 weeks of 6 recommendations per week, we’d make Recomendo even better by compiling a categorized version on the web. So Claudia rounded up the past issues and sorted all the recommendations by subject. The Recomendo website now offers all the travel tips, or cleaning techniques, or browser hacks in one place. Check it out, it’s pretty neat. The links have been rechecked and updated. This compendium can serve as an alternative way to refresh what we’ve raved about recently, or it is also a perfect way to inform a friend about our collective recommendations. Over 450 great tips and recommendations of cool stuff. To share on social media use this shortened link: http://goo.gl/7Zpa6b
Let us know what you think.

Brush pens are fun for drawing and lettering because you can vary the line thickness.

This Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen includes one hard tip and one soft tip. I […]
