If you show advertising on your website / blog, or are thinking of doing so, this is something you need to know.
I’ve just removed what little advertising there was on my blog. The ads were shown below my category list, and included just four simple text link ads (two for print cartridge retailers and two for web template sites).
To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of my graphic design blog, I’m launching this bumper giveaway to thank you all. You’ve helped make this site what it is today and here are the fantastic prizes up for grabs.
Here’s a useful plugin that can help reduce spam comments left purely for that ‘followed link’.
Whether you publish a blog post three times per day, once every day, or even once per week, finding inspiration can prove troublesome. I’ve been able to keep a decent level of consistency up on my blog, posting on average every three days. I owe a lot to you, my readers.
Five questions related to design and blogs.
Ilker, of The Thinking Blog, recently left the 4,000th comment here on my site. I like to feature each person who leaves a milestone comment, to thank them for visiting, and for participating in the discussion.

Today, with your help, I broke the 1,500 daily RSS readers barrier.
Having started my blog last October, it won’t be long before the one year anniversary. To celebrate, I’m running a graphic design / marketing / branding / SEO / blogging prize giveaway, with the aim of thanking each and every one of you for your valued contributions, subscriptions and site visits.
I recently contacted a few niche experts, asking if they could get involved and offer a prize. The result so far has been fantastic! You really don’t want to miss out on this one, and thank you so much to everyone giving their valuable time to help.
I use WordPress to power my website. One of the benefits is the number of plugins available.
When I first started The Face Behind The Blog Collection, I wasn’t sure if anyone would join in.

Hopefully they’ll help you avoid making the same ones.
If you’re like me, you’ll be passionate about the subject you write about, caring less about any monetary gain and more about a genuine interest in the topic.
You’ll also want to cover the costs of your web hosting, and might place a few relevant ads across your site / blog (you can see how I do this in my right sidebar, under the ‘featured sites’ heading).
Every now and again I like to ask you, my reader, what you think about my blog. You’re taking the time out of your day to visit, read and interact through the article comments, and it’s important for me to ask for your feedback.
It’s the little things that make all the difference.
Here are a few of the thoughts that crop up when publishing a blog.
A special mention to the person who left the 3,000th comment here on my site.
No matter what line of business you’re in, it’s vital that you can measure the results of your endeavours. If you spend any amount of time dealing with websites, you’ll understand the importance of statistics, and how they can track progress and provide pointers for improvement.
Ever since I started publishing posts online, I looked forward to the time when I could feature my best posts.
