What are your favourite creative quotes? Words that inspire you to be creative, to get up and do something. Have you coined a phrase or paragraph that you’d like to share?
I was participating in an online critique of a budding designers’ work. Bluntly, it was beyond repair and I recommended a return to the drawing board rather than polishing the turd.
The polishing term was offered in one comment, and that got be thinking.
I’m piecing together some design quotes to include in my blog footer. There’s a nice plugin I’ve installed for WordPress called the Random Quote Plugin. You enter a number of quotes via the admin and it generates a random one to display every time the page is refreshed.
There are currently just a handful of quotes that I’ve entered, but what I’d love is to create a list full of your inspiring quotes, giving you a little extra online exposure.
What I can do is make your name (such as David Reddig’s above) clickable to a web address of your choice, but as your quote(s) will appear on over 150 pages of this blog I’m a little worried it might harm my Google juice (Andy Beard wrote an interesting post about linking to external sites in every page of your site — maybe you know something about this?).
Update: 22 August 2007
Since publishing this post I’ve changed my blog layout, removing the random quote generator Plugin.
Regardless, share your words of wisdom and I’ll show the best on more than 150 pages. If you prefer, offer up your favourite quotes from others.
