Today I just wanted to post something to give my new found CSS tips and tricks an audience. Instructions on how to use some of these cool formatting tools can be found at the excellent website of Mandarin Design Clever looking formatting has never been easier and is as simple as cut and paste. So, if you are looking to add a little more Bling to your blog, this might be a great place to start learning some new tricks.
…original painting “Walks On Water is still available. Make the artist an offer. This painting must be sold soon own it and enjoy it forever…
Yes, I am still seeking a buyer for Walks On Water. If it doesn’t find a new home within the next few weeks I have decided that it will be placed in my next public show here in the UK, along with the other remaining pieces from the series.
Enough. Playtime is over for now, but I would like to recommend my readers to a couple of websites I found during the past few days of wandering the web and the blogosphere. The first is Sucky To Savvy by Jeffrey M. Glover This is a fun and informative site about some of the do’s and dont’s of web page or blog page design. As this post has more to do with such things than my normal fare, this site deserves a mention just because it highlights some of the truly awful dogs dinners some people make in their attempts to create an all singing and all dancing blog. I know that I come across far too many who use some or even all of the “sucky” attributes that annoy the heck out of me. Less is sometimes more folks.
How do I come across all these wonderful and varied websites I hear you asking. I have already mentioned some of the social bookmarking sites but these are the three that I use on a regular basis:-
My last mention has to go to Blinklist as one of my favourites. If you want a place to keep all your favourites I would recommend Blinklist for the simple reason that some of the features they offer are first class for anyone who blogs. You will notice that I have now added a “Blink It” button to all of my blog posts.
If you take a look at the Arteccentrix Links Page, you can see how my Blinklist bookmarks are integrated into the website and it is all achieved with a simple cut and paste. This is another great way to share your favourite sites with your blog readers and remember, if I Blinklist your website or blog, it means an automatic link to your site from mine. It follows of course that anybody using the same set up will be doing the same. Sign up and start discovering and sharing all your favourite places on the web while promoting your own site in the process.
