 Hi guys, even tho I'm busier than God these days I wanted to stop by to say "hi" and give you a preview of some stuff I've been working on that will be out later this month.

 One of the great things about ActiveRain is how it continues to evolve over time. That also means that some stuff I designed for you to use months ago, doesn't fit the new Rain blogs the way they should so...

 I'm designing new blog graphics to fit the new header dimensions of the standard Rain blogs & the outside Rain blogs. Here's a quick peek at a few in the works...

 

The Rain Rocks

 Topsy is a new kind of search engine, with a new way of looking at the Internet. Topsy doesn't think the Internet is a collection of documents. Or even a web of documents. Topsy sees the Internet as a stream of conversations... Topsy.com

Obsessing with Google PageRank   by Mihaela Lica

 Every time I write an SEO article I get a bunch of comments from web marketers who are obviously obsessed with Google PageRanks, so obsessed that they literally believe that PageRanks influence everything from rankings into Google’s SERPs to the overall online influence of a site.  read...

Hi Marti!  I'm with you on the 48-hour days!!  Great information--simply overwhelming at this point as I'm swamped too!  But, you do such a wonderful job of presenting some of the best writing here in the Rain, NOT to mention your amazing ART!  You are SO talented, my friend!

BTW--have you seen that our NC blog is now active--how proud I am that you designed it for us!  You are much appreciated!
