A website and mobile app which help bloggers/hobby writers to create their genuine content and once they do have some considerable amount of posts, they can go on to publish their own books. Further, they can sell them online too. By this, writers from all walks of life can be published authors. Blogging as in general becomes too monotonous to deal with, once, you spend some good amount of time. I am trying to tie a purpose to the blogging. A new form of blogging, if I may. Wherein, writers have…

I define "event" very broadly; some examples may be: happy hour, karaoke night, any promotional event, parade, concert, etc. As a college student, I'm constantly looking for fun things to do. I'm always looking to save some…
