Happy New Year

Posted by: Char | Comments (3)

Happy 2009! The holidays are almost over – meaning January 5th the kids go back to their normal schedules and I will return to regular business hours. I have the new site layout sketched out so here’s hoping I can get it put together and uploaded soon.

How about a few quick links in the mean time?

Enjoy the last few days of the holiday and welcome 2009.

Essential Links for 11-21-2008

Posted by: Char | Comments (2)

Here I thought I would have time to do more posting here this week and it is Friday and I haven’t! Well, at least I can point you in the direction of some articles that are useful and worth reading this week…

First of all, do you want to learn 97 ways to drive traffic to your site from someone who really knows what they are talking about? If so, sign up for Dawud Miracle’s teleclass on creative ways to drive traffic to your site – but hurry, the class is next week!

In the words of wisdom department, David Airey reminds us that we should not be seeking praise, rather we should be asking for criticism. After all, how can you move forward or improve if you don’t know where you are missing the target.

You can get a free download of the book The Art and Science of CSS just by following sitepointdotcom on Twitter – read Digital Inspiration for all the details.

Looking for some fun new Photoshop Brushes, Laughing Lion Design is featuring a whole series of them this week.

YouSendIt has always been my first choice for moving large files on the web. They have taken a great product and made it even better – now you can send large files through their Microsoft Office Add-In. In otherwords, if you need to send a large PowerPoint presentation to a potential client, you can do so from PowerPoint using the add-in. Cool.

Have a great weekend!

Its All About The Links

Posted by: Char | Comments (4) - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more A full week back in the office has felt amazing! I have been able to get a few projects wrapped up, had conversations about new projects, and will even go work “offsite” at Panera for a few hours this morning.  I have also had a chance to do some reading and have collected a few really good “link” related articles for you.

Do you know of any other recent posts about linking that are worth sharing? Let me know!
