Getting Away From Google AdSense

I’m trying to De-Google my life. For some reason, I kept having problems with my AdSense showing up on the blog. Considering this is the highest traffic page on the site, that’s kind of important. I’ve been trying to get away from Gmail and google drive and a lot of their other products too. Tonight I had enough with AdSense and began looking for a new advertiser for my sites. I came across a site that offers low payouts and also bitcoin payments. Hopefully, the blog and website get approved, and I’ll post a review on them shortly.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Goals & Resolutions 2019

Getting focused on 2019! Setting goals and starting to work on some old projects. I’ve had this website for several years, and it’s always taken a back seat to all my other projects. That’s changing in 2019. I’ll be doing a lot of design work to this site, adding many offers and trying to finally get the business aspect of this site off the ground.

Blogging will be another big part of my 2019. I’m currently managing several different blogs. I’ll be posting about those and also blogging here regularly. I’ll be offering blogging services too, like setup, and design for anyone that might be considering a blog but isn’t sure on how to get started.

The content on this site will be centered around blogging, HTML, and graphic design, social media marketing, and working as an internet freelancer.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2019, and wishing you health, wealth, and prosperity in the new year.

June News.

June has arrived marking the end of spring and the beginning of summer. I can’t believe how fast May flew by. The month blew by so quickly I really didn’t even get a chance to post to this blog. BAD BLOGGER ! I’m a bit disappointed in myself.

welcome june summer arrives.

Welcome June. Created in Gimp 2.8. Image found on morguefile.com. Thank God summer is finally here !

I started a learn spanish blog as a side project and I was working on it so much that I didn’t realize how fast the time was going by last month. http://www.mi-palabra-del-dia.com/.

With that said I’m going to be posting here a lot more. Humm, have I said this before. I think so. O.K. seriously, I’m going to be adding content from some of my other blogs, posting youtube videos from some people I follow on youtube, and yes, I’m going to try and add some of my own original content as time permits.

Expect information on CSS , HTML, web design, graphics work, lots of stuff on Gimp and Inkscape, and I’ve been doing a lot of stuff with fonts so expect some font links and more.

Thanks for reading, have a happy and safe summer, and talk to ya all soon !

Nice site , too bad nothing works.

I hate when a company builds a beautiful website with all the bells and whistles and nothing works. I mean really… Either the people you hired or your in house designers took on a job that was above their expertise.

Now you have a beautiful website that achieves one thing and one thing only. Pisses off potential prospects. #poordesign

May News Letter

Like the spring weather here in Western New York, I’m getting a late start on the May news letter and monthly update. Things have been real busy around here, and I’ve started building a portfolio, and cleaning up some of my blogs and designs.

First things first, I’d love to explain the current theme of the blog. I haven’t gone soft, I’m simply trying to bust out of my comfort zone. Being a d00d many of my designs have a darker theme, and also a more manly feel to them. I thought for spring I would try to force myself out of my comfort zone and create something with a softer more feminine feel to it. Thus we have pinkish purple flowers, with a floral theme. I may have went a bit overboard but it’s my first attempt at this type of designing. I’m going to be changing it up in June with a more summery theme that I haven’t really decided on yet. However, for the next several months I am going to be focusing on getting out of the comfort zone.

I’ve been adding blogs to my portfolio. Currently, I’m maintaining 4 on Blogger, 2 using WordPress, and I’ve been playing around on Tumblr. I don’t really know what to think about Tumblr, but with Yahoo purchasing the company earlier this year I think it’s going to be an up and coming platform in the future. For that reason I’ve been giving it a little bit more attention than I believe it really deserves. Currently here’s what my blogging portfolio looks like. If your bored and any of these topics interest you check em out.

Tumblr Blogs

Because Tumblr is a really different type of blogging service, I’ve been using it to mirror some of my current blogs. I try to post different information but also link the post from my other blogs to it. This has proven very effective in traffic generation. I think Tumblr really falls somewhere between social networking, or maybe social blogging. It’s a very different platform then the other services available. For example, users really can’t comment, only share posts. I’m going to be doing some more posts about blogging this month. I’ll be sure to add more information on Tumblr. For now here are the blog mirrors.

New Aeon Design – Sort of a mirror to this blog.
Mi Palabra Del Dia – Mirror to my learn Spanish blog on Blogger.

Staying with the busting out of my comfort zone theme. I tried my hand at a retro redesign. This was a really fun project for a customers news letter. I learned a lot with the design, and on my next attempt I’ll be changing more than a couple things, but I had fun designing it and the customer was happy.
Fun Retro Redesign for Helene's Mostly Jewelry.
The concept is to take some old public domain ad stock and recreate the design. I found the above image, cleaned it up a bit, added some text with a basic font to maintain the old style theme. I went with a bold sans-serif and some classic script for the business name. In the future I’d like to maybe add an additional font and make the business name more pronounced. The customer however loved it and that’s really all that matters.

So, that’s what I’ve been working on over here at New Aeon Design. This month, expect some posts about blogging and blog design. I plan to change up a bunch of stuff on the Blogger blogs, and I’d also like to talk a little about WordPress. You can also look forward to some social networking posts, tips, tricks, and what I’ve discovered.

With that said, thanks for checking out my blog portfolio, thanks for reading, and thanks to everyone following members, rss, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook (Just started nobody following yet, you could be the first !), Pinterest, and G+. Feel free to comment and ttys ! SEE YA !
