Shock value always helps people get attention for , but quality of the shock (longevity) is what makes it stand.

Marketing Your Web Sites

If you're really into web design or graphics, you probably know how important it is for people to find your work. Well that's where your marketing skills come in to play. I'm not going to give the 101's on marketing here, but what I am going to do is give a you a link to a place that offers user-voted marketing content.

http://sphinn.com/

I've found some very good information within only a few seconds of being on that website. Perhaps in the future I will create an e-Marketing 101 guide for you though. I have virtually no money and have done all marketing by the book and without that which most consider essential money. That's right, I know how to be cheap, so cheap in fact that I wouldn't pay any money for some of my strategies, and if there's no price on them, that makes them priceless. You will have priceless strategies from me for free.

Caligraphy Tool Test

I wanted to test out the Caligraphy Tool in GIMP vs Project Dogwaffle. I've found that I prefer the Dogwaffle tool over the GIMP tool, although the GIMP tool is interesting too. I drew a character in each program and posted them here so you could compare them as well.

USING GIMP TOOL
(Reproduced Chinese word for "LUCK")
Below was using the Tempura brush tool
(not a real Chinese character)

I found that the marks were more smooth in Project Dogwaffle, but more controllable in GIMP. Both produce desirable results!

You can download GIMP for free here:

And you can download Project Dogwaffle for free here:

Digg Buttons For Your Blogspot Blog!

I just put some "Digg" buttons on my site, in case you're wondering how to do it for your Blogspot blog too, here's the link that showed me how.

Back to LiveWriter!

It's been a while since I've used Windows

livewriter

I've missed Live Writer. It makes so easy. Not that I want to be lazy, but that I want to do more in the same amount of time. Now I can toggle between many blogs at once! The only one it doesn't work for is my custom made blog, Chexed.com. It works for any blogger blog or blog.

I included the screenshot above so you can see just how easy it makes things! The only reason I stopped using it is because I reformatted my computer (because I got a virus :()

Things are rock'n'rollin again!
