Blogging for Business, by Chris Garret, is the latest book I’ve read from WordTracker. It proposes to be a How-to for business blogging, and I’d say it covers that pretty well. Chapter 1 – Why Blog? One interesting part in the beginning is the comparison with various others vehicles for communication – newsletters: – Blogs […]
After reading the excelent Web Site Recipes, I bought another Wordtracker book, Writing Kick-ass Website Sales Copy. My sales copy is a bit weak, so I thought it could help. It was somewhat helpful, but if it had recipe on the name too, I´d have to say it was a bit bland. The book is […]
Interesting article on the ASP site about site optimization. Several tips on the best way to do so, as well as reminders about why – not only does a faster loading site means your potential customers are less likely to leave, Google recently added some ranking based on site speed, so you might get better […]
Having mentioned the content-aware fill for Adobe CS5, I just had to mention the equivalent feature on the free GIMP. There is a pretty cool video that is similar to the CS5 one: You can see instructions on how to use it on Windows, as well as another demo here (blog post gone, link removed).
The Download Squad has posted an interesting review of Zen Coding. It’s a very interesting system for those who write HTML and CSS by hand. The video is well worth watching. Personally, I’ve always wrote HTML by hand. Currently I use Notepad++. Of course, most of my pages are dynamically generated from XML+XSLT on each […]
I’m looking into changing my e-mail newsletter from PHPList – which is pretty good for a free tool, but obviously lack features compared to pricy ESPs (e-mail service providers), and deliverability is of course smaller, as the ESPs spend a lot of time tuning theirs. I’m checking out several ESPs, such as Mailchimp and GetResponse. […]
Recently I read an interesting article from GetResponse about Survey Responses. From the results looks like it’s best to have radio boxes based questions, followed by check boxes. Of course, you do limit useful extra information that the user could be bringing on with open questions – after all, they can only choose answers you […]
I’ve recently received several videos about the new features of Adobe Photoshop CS5. My favorites were these: I particularly loved the reconstruction of the ruins!
I’ve recently read The Web Content Recipe book, by Rachelle Money, Ken McGaffin and Mark Nunney. I expected a good book, from the excerpts available on PDF, but found it was even better than that. The book proposes to improve your ability to create good web content. Web content is important for several reasons, depending […]
Welcome to my new blog. I plan to post articles about features in our products – new, upcoming, or old and overlooked. And also reviews of interesting books, sites and software.
