Time goes SOoooo fast!

Thursday! OMG! It’s already Thursday, almost 10 days after the end of the QSC. So, in the spirit of posting regularly, here is what’s coming: I’m currently putting online one site for my pictures, one site for my IM activities, one site for self-employed and the realities of working in/from your home, one site on self healing and, if I can, one site on books that can make a difference in one’s life.

Gotta go ( I have tons of work to do if I want to deliver!)…

Have a great, no, a FANTASTIC! week 🙂

Week 3 – Here is your gift :-)

Week 3 of the Quick Start Challenge has been more challenging than I expected, especially since I had already done the “homework” in week 2 when I had put up a subscription link at the bottom of the page (not very handsome, but still, it was there) and I had told in the video what the gift would be to sent those who subscribed. And then time started running, so that we are again on Tuesday and I’m again rushing to finish eveything at the last minute.

The gift

Maries_5-Headers_2014The gift you will get as a new subscriber is a set of five (5) headers made from photos I took, accompanied with matching buttons (3, from 100 to 200 px wide), banners (4, from 250 to 500 px wide) and bullets (2 sizes), plus a favicon. The last bundle actually offers 3 headers (one with the full image, one with the top half and one with the bottom half).

All files are in .psd so that you can add your logo and name in layers. Headers are included in jpg format too for immediate use. They are 1200 pixels wide.


You might be interested to know that those pictures have not been photoshopped. Not even the stars in the water. They have been cropped to frame, of course, but there is no special effects of any kind in them.

My first video post!

Well, talk about getting out of our comfort zone!  But I did it. I’m pretty sure doing it at the last minute sort of defeats the purpose of generating traffic this week, but then it was Easter and we’ve been flooded – thanks Mother Nature.

Therefore, in order to compensate a bit, I created a subscription form (see at the bottom of Continue reading

First Post – this is a landmark

First posts are just that, first posts, but to me this one is a landmark because I’ve meant to do this blog and website for years now. I bought the domain back in 2009 with one specific project in mind but never got around to do it.

That’s why, when I saw Craig’s and Dean’s The Quick Start Challenge, I jumped on Continue reading
