And now something completely different :D (Monty Phyton phrase, I know, but I like it :))
When I started this blog on 07/07/07, believe it or not and I didn’t realize that immediately, some months later :))- I didn’t think that so many people will visit it. I didn’t think that so many people will write – ask questions, share their thoughts and ideas… and, most of, I did not expect to get so many “Thank You” messages.
I was really surprised and glad to find out that so many liked this little “house of mine” in the big World Wide Web.
So, few days ago, I received this nicely done “Thank You Card” from Just Because Images and I thought that it would be nice to share it with you.
This is also a thank you to all of you who support my work! Thank you All!
I prepared another brand new, fresh Swirls Floral Photoshop Brushes set – Join GBG here and download the Swirls Floral LITE Edition (10) Photoshop Brushes set for free!
There are two versions, one is for free and this one contains 10 brushes, BUT if you decide that 10 is just not enough for your present of future needs and you decide to really make my day and you decide that you want to support the work I’m doing here, then you will opt for full 42 Swirls Photoshop brushes set.
PayPal and Credit Card payments accepted!
Commercial license included! Now, that’s a fair deal I think.
Bye for now, I’m onto new brushes for tomorrow guys. See you later!
I will answer, let’s talk!
I don’t know about you but, when it comes to coding, html, css, js and stuff, it’s just not… my thing.
But being a web designer, sometimes, for some projects, when there no are programmers involved I just have to deal with coding.
So, what happened, one of my favorite clients ordered the whole visual identity package (you know company logo, letterhead, business cards, web site…) and, on the top of it all he wanted a blog on blogger. Naturally, this blog had to be designed to fit the visual identity of his company.
Lot of html/css tweaking – but, I managed. Tweaked that template and made it follow the visual identity parameters of the company, here is the link -> Greeenamic blog.
OK, to make a long story short, I grabbed that bull (blogger) by the horns and started to fight it. However I would never be able to find my way through that template without a help from this amazing Firefox Addon called Web developer that made it possible for me to locate the CSS definitions of each and every block of that blogger template I was tweaking.
So, for all of you who need or might need here is the Web Developer Firefox Addon can be found here.
This Addon was created by Chris Pederick who saved my life today.
Take the one question survey – win a visit and a comment on your blog!
Guys, I’m in a dilemma. After spending some time working on the re-design of this blog I came up with two versions.
- Version with header and logo (the one you are looking at right now)
- Version without header and logo (brand new approach, click on the thumbnail below to enlarge)
Which one is better?
If you let me know what you think I will visit your blog and praise you.
I was just getting ready to become depressed as nothing interesting was happening today and it was just about to became… boring? until few hours ago I run into that shoemoney blog.
It seemed like every blogger in the universe knows about that guy except for me. OK, I am a designer and a photographer so I guess It’s forgivable. Anyways, if he is to be trusted it seems like that guy is making some serious money with his blog which, of course, grabbed my attention.
Now, among other stuff that he does, he also takes a pictures of himself. A lot. I don’t know, maybe some think he’s sexy being bold with glasses and all. Anyway, if he gets all that attention (like thousands of visitors every day) I thought it would be nice if he published a picture of him self wearing a T-Shirt with my logo on it.
So, to cut the short story long (or was it the other way around) I decided to send him a T-Shirt with my logo on it and let him make one his “Free Shirt Friday” post using it. He gets a shirt and I get exposure.
I was just figuring this whole thing out when the following funny spam email popped in (what a laugh!):

More free website traffic
So, now I have to combine my work in microstock agencies with my new domain name and try to get some visitors on my bsilvia.com.
blogffiliate.com blog will contain useful info for new bloggers but also for other bloggers who are in need of new graphics, buttons, banners – you know, stuff I’m creating :)
