    Hi there, I noticed that you are linking to Sharedcount.com on your article http://novage.com.sg/blog/300-awesome-free-things-a-massive-list-of-free-resources-you-should-know/ . As that service is being discontinued, perhaps it could be useful to replace the link for Sharescount.com, a new working alternative. Keep up the great work!
