Top 10 Reasons to Use List Posts

A List Post About List Posts No 1 Do you think list posts are a good idea, or do you steer away from them? I believe they have their place and, if done well, can form a valuable part of your blogging repertoire. I present my case in the form of a list post because that seemed appropriate.

Free Floral Images for Picture Quotes

Free Floral Square Image for Social Media

Do you want to make your own picture quotes for social media, instead of sharing those made by others? Add your own unique message, saying, or a favorite quote, and stand out from the crowd.

You can share them on your profile, on pages or in groups. My newest collection of free backgrounds feature floral borders, and flower pictures, created in Photoshop. The images are square and of an ideal size for […] Continue Reading…

You can also use Facebook embeds to include Facebook posts, images and videos in websites and blogs. This is the time of year for reflecting on the past year and looking ahead to the future.

Social Media Image - no family

To celebrate the start of the “Silly Season” here are my thoughts on signs you’re using too much Social Media for marketing. We use the term “Silly Season” here in Australia when talking about the period leading up to Christmas and the New Year. It used to mean a slow news period but now we use it to talk about mad rush, long queues shopping.

I explain this here and give you 3 transparent grid overlay images, to help you when you add text to your own images. The idea behind the 20% rule is so that images are engaging and of high quality. This […] Continue Reading…
