I’ve been using PhotoScape to do some graphic design to publicise a few events. It is fairly easy and very effective. You can not only tell people about your event but show them the location with a picture. Today, I’m doing a photo shoot to raise money for Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital and so designed a graphic to publicise it.
Today I’ve started with a photo linked to the Rotary Club website who organise the carnival, it’s essentially an advert for my local carnival. I want to publicise local events and businesses. I’m doing free adverts, but local adverts could easily be used to monetize your blog. (more…)
I’ve started with a photo of a pub we visited on Friday today. I’ve added some text using PhotoScape to turn it into an advert and if you click it; it will take you to the Facebook page for the pub (in a new window). Creating and adding adverts for local businesses is that easy and not very intrusive. (more…)

We can use some of those tricks to sell stuff too! It doesn’t matter whether you’re selling crafts or your used car.
British summer time ends this weekend. We change the clocks one hour (back) and so the nights will be darker and the mornings will be lighter for a while at least. The colours of nature are changing and the trees and changing colour as the leaves begin to fall.

So you have finally opened your dream store. Everything is in place. The finance part, the advertising part and every little minute detail you needed for incepting your store is complete. You advertised in your own way in the local newspaper and on the radio station or the old and traditionally famous word of mouth concept is working its magic. You place every item you wanted in place. Now you are waiting for customers to come in to your store. You think now all you have to hear is your cash box registering. (more…)
