    Jessi got a reaction from WisTex in How To Increase Your Post Count Without Being Banned: Tip #2   
    Was it ever suggested to her that she should start a blog? That's how I would've approached it. I would've made it sound like a good thing and encouraged her to explore that a bit more outside the forum. Then I would welcome her to post her links in the forum so that people could read if they wanted, but without it flooding the forum.

    I'm sure there's an additional DVD drive accessory you can purchase from Microsoft and hang on your belt via the Microsoft supplied holster. THEN you can "insert disk" and fix your phone. jk'ing..

    They're great for games!
     

     
    But no, seriously, they're often times not compatible for a lot of games, so you end up missing out on some or have to use all these workarounds to get specific ones. It's just not worth it for a lot of people.

    Jessi got a reaction from KMRock in How much content before a web site is not considered thin?   
    What do ads have to do with it? 
     
    With or without ads, a site can be filled with content...or no content at all. Most people aren't talking about ad placement when they're asking about whether a site is thin or not.

    All the big brands are doing it, so maybe you should be too, right? The article shows a lot of examples of how they're going with minimalist designs, too, like these:

    Jessi got a reaction from Rayru18 in Color Blender - Find new theme colors   
    http://www.colorblender.com/
     
    Very simple concept, but also very helpful. If you're building a new site or tweaking your current one, this is a site where you put in your main color and it'll help you find the accent colors that match well and work together best.

    Jessi got a reaction from Rayru18 in Which font to use

    I'm going to warn you now....
     
    Clicking that link is going to give you way more information and detailed analytical tidbits than you probably ever wanted to know.
     
    But it is really, really good to at least skim and pick up on the best font families to use for your sites.

    You can add this to your list of "positives." I've been around for a while now and any time there's ever been a glitch or feedback offered up, Nathan is super fast at addressing it.

    1. That can’t happen.
    2. That doesn’t happen on my machine.
    3. That shouldn’t happen.
    4. Why does that happen?
    5. Oh, I see.
    6. How did that ever work?
     
     
    Soooo true. Gah! I cannot tell you how many times I've gone through those steps, whether it's while coding, troubleshooting a site, trying to fix my computer, whatever, ha.

    This is another awesome article from Instant Shift. I'm not even going to try to sum it up because it goes into great detail about how to track your results. If you do a lot of email marketing, this is key.

    It does exactly what it says it does. There's no cost or signup or even pages to click through. Just paste in your CSS and watch it get converted down to a slimmer format on the right.

    Really, this applies to other forms of online sites/interactions/etc, but it was set up to be aimed toward bloggers.
     
    The section on "commanding" caught my attention specifically. They're right about how even if you are offering up a solution, 10k other bloggers out there are, too, and chances are, they're better at it, so replicating won't do you any good. Having a good *voice* to bring in unique viewers/readers, though, is another story.
