Online shopping is a practical facet of modern life. We have access to thousands of shops at the tips of our fingertips. Online shopping is the busy mans life saver. Need a pair of curtains but can’t get to the store? Order them! But online shops are facing a small problem, not everyone who fills up their cart is checking out.

I have been guilty of this many times. I browse my internet hot spots like Madewell, Anthropologie and J Crew, and add items to my cart that are far out of my price range. And then leave. That’s it. No purchase necessary, just some good old fashioned window shopping! Today’s infographic discusses the many reasons that shoppers abandon their cart and what they can do to remedy that.

Aside from the window shoppers, many shoppers with intention to purchase their items are deflected by shipping costs. Reducing shipping costs, offering free shipping when possible and ensuring a speedy delivery are ways to keep customers around until the end. [Via]

Happy Labor Day to everyone! If you’re lucky enough like me you have today off and are probably going to be cooking out, going to the lake, just resting at home, and/or spending time with family. Here in Austin, The University of Texas looks as though school has not even started yet. Everyone has gone home to enjoy one final weekend before we all have the long stretch of vactionless work until Thanksgiving. To celebrate this day off a lot of us will be cooking some good grub, everyone has go to eat right? I provide for you all today the Kitchen Cheat Sheet an infographic providing metric conversions, different meat cuts, how to organize your fridge, and some general cooking tips.

For everyone that is working today, I’m sorry, that must suck something fierce. I’m sure everywhere is busier today and having once worked in the service industry I know how hard it is to see everyone on their day off as you have to restock or wait on them hand and foot. Having friends who didn’t work in college, their stories of fun on holidays like this one were always a big tease.

On a different note this will be my last post for a while, my day time job has really kicked up and is requiring more of my time. I will be taking leave from the site for a couple of months but don’t worry I leave in more than capable hands of our other writers and replacement for me. As always enjoy today’s infographic and don’t forget to share. [via]

What not to feed your dog [Infographic]

Most people can say that at some point in their lives they’ve owned a pet. With that in mind I can comfortably say that I haven’t had any pets in a long time, but that lately I’ve been seriously considering getting a dog. As I indicated in last week’s post, I personally think that dogs are some of the best pets that people can own; they’re loyal and they’re always happy to see you. Plus, if you know the basics of dog-care they’re not hard to take care of.

With how much crazy stuff dogs seem to regularly eat, it’s hard to imagine that some of the most seemingly harmless foods can give a dog so much trouble. I even knew of a friend’s dog growing up who ate things that included (but were not limited to) lemons, shoes, and even a cigar!

Specifically concerning a dog’s diet, today’s infographic from sfist.com shows the reader what types of food dog owners should keep away from their dogs in order to keep them healthy. For instance, it’s common knowledge that dogs should stay away from chocolate and other cocoa-derived products, but I had no idea that onions and avocado could be dangerous for dogs, too.

For more info on foods that could be harmful to your dog, refer to the infographic below. [Via]

The DNA of a Successful Book [infographic]

August 31, 2012 |  by  |  Education, Recreation  |  No Comments

Today’s graphic illustrates the ‘perfect’ book. A piece of literature that pleases a broad crowd a lot like pop music. Just like pop music’s 3 minute song, best selling books have a normal length of a little less than four hundred pages. Men are more likely to read a story with a male protagonist, yet a publication with women protagonists are much more likely to become a big hit. Recently books have been said to be losing ground in the entertainment industry – I don’t know if I agree. Books are still huge hits, digitally and physically. For some reason e-book didn’t put paperbacks into the grave – some argue digital sales help sell more physical copies.

I’ve been a book worm my entire life. My entire life except college. Besides re-reading the Hobbit for the upcoming film and a dozen books for classes, I haven’t read for pleasure in almost three years. This is going to change, and as an avid Game of Thrones fan I think I’ll start with A Song of Ice and Fire. My roommate last year spent hours reading the entire seriers in only a few months. We didn’t see him too often, but the literature is supposed to be superb. I’ll be taking a trip to Half Priced Books soon to see what diction they have deals on. [Via]
