craigs clicks: ActiveRain Profile Page Cover Photos - Inspiration Board - 08/09/14 01:15 PM
A very important part of your ActiveRain blog is your profile page. In a recent post, I discussed all sorts of  things to consider for your profile photo. Now let’s look at the Cover Photo. I’ll follow with another post soon digging into the particulars of setting up your cover photo.
In this post, I went surfing the ActiveRain profile pages looking for cover photos that we can use for inspiration. I came back with 40 covers as a comprehensive sampling of what can be done. I’m handing out gold stars today as you’ll often find me doing. Well done to those that I came across in my … (100 comments)

craigs clicks: Web Design - Inspiration Board - Craig's Clicks - 01/08/12 02:14 PM

Beautifully designed web pages stand out miles above the sea of "my website looks like every other template website." You too can have a website in about an hour with pre-populated stock real estate articles and hard to use navigation, and absolutely way too much information blasting at you when you hit the home page. Getting a website like this is fast, relatively inexpensive, and EASY - but is it effective?
(can you sense my disdain?? ;)
Will consumers (you know, these are the people that you want to hire you) actually LIKE your presentation and decide to call … (61 comments)

craigs clicks: Craig's Clicks - ActiveRain Blog Themes (#5) - 05/04/11 02:16 PM

You know I like to give out gold stars. I've even started a gold star group where we get to feature other ARs and the work that they do. This particular series of gold star posts I call "Craig's Clicks". If you want to go back and see previous posts, that link will list them for you. Our blog content is the most important thing for us to focus on... however our presentation is very valuable too. We want readers to enjoy the appearance so they stay long enough to read it!
I'm featuring blogs three at a time in … (33 comments)

Have you seen that I too like to hand out gold stars? This blog series I'm calling "Craig's Clicks". If you want to go back and see previous posts, that link will list them for you. I'm featuring blogs three at a time in these different categories: blog theme, blog profile, and blog signature.
The purpose of the series is to find good examples that inspire us and give us ideas on our own blogs. I'm clicking around ActiveRain as much as I have time to and if I see something that I like, I'll mark the click with a … (67 comments)

craigs clicks: Craig's Clicks - ActiveRain Blog Signatures (#1) - 11/06/10 07:55 AM

Let's continue with the Craig's Clicks series, but let's switch to looking at blog signatures. (if you've missed the series so far, click the link to go back and catch up). Gold stars from me will go to good examples in blog presentation in three areas: Blog Theme (banner and background), Blog Signature, and Blog Profile. By highlighting good examples in this way, I hope to inspire others with ideas to update their own blog presentations.
I'm looking at the presentation of you in the virtual world. If your presentation is attractive to the eye, engaging, tells a concise story … (28 comments)

craigs clicks: Craig's Clicks - ActiveRain Blog Themes (#2) - 10/29/10 01:46 PM

Have you seen that I've started handing out gold stars? You can go back to my first post if you want to get the longer introduction. I'm giving out gold stars three at a time in these different categories: blog theme, blog profile, and blog signature.
I initially called the series "Craig's Picks" but I had asked for feedback for perhaps a more catchy name. We had a nice discussion with lots of good suggestions but one stuck with me more than the rest "Craig's Clicks" I like it (thank you to Judy Jennings for suggesting the name). I'm clicking … (26 comments)

craigs clicks: Craig's Picks - ActiveRain Blog Themes - 10/27/10 03:24 PM

I want to start handing out gold stars! As you make comments on my blog posts or subscribe to my blog, I try as much as I can to head over to your blog too. (So many people, so little time!) Also perhaps you caught my eye as I was checking out the featured or main blog rolls.
I like to learn from others. I know we all do, that's we are here in the rain to begin with! I've started doing snapshots of pages that I like. In fact, I'm going to start categorizing my favorites into such as … (71 comments)
