Do you ever have those days when your fuse is so short even the bird tweeting in the tree outside your house can get your back up..? Or am I just a crazy person today...?
Had a fairly frustrating last few hours.. my little boy went down and woke up extra early from his morning nap and I then thought I should try and keep him up until his afternoon nap time at 1pm... so from 8am to now (12pm) I read stories, fed him food, let him dismantle our dvd collection etc.. in between all that he whinged the whole time.. sigh. I felt so angry towards the end and now I feel terrible for getting angry at him when he was just tired.. So we couldnt make it to 1pm...
Anyway im starting this off all wrong!! ;)
What I wanted to talk about today was all the free help out there for everything!
First of all check out this site - its Copywriting Tips for Online Marketing Success and is really interesting if you are looking at using your blog to generate a following for either a business or just interested in getting your thoughts out there.
Favourite bit from this site ;
- Write more.
- Write even more.
- Write even more than that.
- Write when you don’t want to.
- Write when you do.
- Write when you have something to say.
- Write when you don’t.
- Write every day.
- Keep writing.
Another thing im trying to get help on is graphic design... I am looking at trying to do alot of my marketing myself including flyers, business cards, newletters etc.. I designed my logo and I know it probably needs a bit of work but I cant afford to pay anyone at the moment so need to figure stuff out on my own..
I have a bit of experience with Photoshop and InDesign from degree in Interior Architecture but need to figure out how to apply it all to Graphic Design.. So here are my helpful websites :
- You the Designer
- Graphic Design Tutorials on About.com
- Wed design Tools List
- A guide to taking better pics for designers
- All design web resourses
- HV Designs a photoshop design blog
So hopefully some of these will help me with first my logo and then maybe a flyer... and eventually maybe even a website design *raised eyebrows*
I love the internet.. whatever question, thought or query I have I love just being able to jump, search and ponder through all the multitude of answers and links :)
Well better finish up for today and get back to sewing... will be taking more pictures sometime soon of my new Owly Owl softies.. hoot hoot!
