Spinning wheel, meet head. Whew!
So this week’s roundup consists of posts I’ve found really useful.
I hope you will too.
Let’s get right to it.
1. Secrets to becoming a photo editor, by Mollie Megasko over at Spin Sucks.
Why: I’ve always wanted to play with images, but not being a designer has kept me in a bit of a closet. After playing with Pixlr, I think I’m addicted.
Why: Matt’s post gave me a much-needed boot in the butt to stop dreaming about winning the lottery (ok, to stop dreaming quite so often of winning the lottery) and making my own.
Why: Lee could pretty much read the phone book and I’d listen, but this is an incredibly simple and effective deck and post on the right way to start, produce and market a blog.
4. 101 free SEO tips, from DIYSEO.
Why: Dude, there are 101 tips here. Do you really need to ask?!
Why: Everyone’s looking for the magic button that will drive engagement, right? Check out Ingrid’s thoughts on Timely.
Why: Mark puts what’s important about blogging nicely into perspective. A good starter list.
Why: this is probably one of the most significant moves Google has made as far as nonprofits go, and I think it will help a lot of them. Beth’s recap is great.
There you go.
What really useful stuff have you found this week? I’d love to know.
