How do you know which of the plethora of websites you can reach with he click of a mouse are worth your time?
Which ones made the cut? "Early Show" Technology Expert Katie Linendoll spotlighted three, including Dear Photograph, where you can merge an old snapshot with a new one and create a new kind of art.
Another favorite of Linedoll's is Airbnb, which connects people looking for places to stay, but don't want to pay for an expensive hotel. It's a marketplace for spare bedrooms and unused vacation homes in 190 countries that matches travelers with hosts and handles the financial transaction in return for a three percent cut.
And her third pick is for those of us who dream big, but don't necessarily have the funds to back it up -- Kickstarter,an outlet for creative types to raise money with micro-financing from others. Average people can donate $1 to hundreds of dollars to fund a project in the worlds of art, music, photographer food, and beyond. The artist maintains 100 percent control over their work and donators get a "thank you" decided by the artist.
Why should you check these out? Lindedoll explains why her picks are worth a click in the video above.
