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.

I found a new social network that I really like. I’ll post more about that in another post. I wanted a graphic button to let people know they could follow me there, and I couldn’t find any so I made one. Feel free to use. Link back not necessary but always appreciated. Gracias!

Get More Twitter Followers Now !

Found this infographic from WhoIsHostingThis and thought it was spot on. By following these simple tips, and spending a little time at it each day, those Twitter followers should start rolling in.

You wouldn’t think there was a lot to social networking and services like Twitter but there is. I’ve learned a lot and made a lot of mistakes with social networking. It takes time, but with a little effort success can be yours.  The more you read and follow tips that are found in inforgraphics like this, the more you start seeing those followers rolling in.

twitter infographic

Great tips for building a strong twitter account and gaining followers.

The info graphic states that you can do this in 5 minutes a day, maybe I’m slow. I spend a little more… A lot more time than that on twitter. I need to start incorporating services like hootsuite, but I tweet randomly throughout the day. As I find good stuff or have some clever comment worth tweeting, I send them out at random. Sometimes from the computer, sometimes from my phone. I try to tweet daily, and spread my tweets out so my followers don’t get what I call a twitter bomb, of 10 – 20 tweets blasted out from my account all at once. Outside of that I completely agree with everything in this info graphic.

P.S, Now on a final note. For all those spam comments asking where I host my blog. You can use the WhoIsHostingThis  service to find out. They are the creator of the infographic, and I’m sure they would love if you stopped by their site and tried out the service.

Just Playing Around

facebook avatar

Just playing around on Facebook and created a new avatar that I may or may not use on there.

Trying to create a Facebook presence, I was playing around with some avatar ideas, and created this from some clip art I had. I may or may not use this, but I thought it was a fun design and at least worth posting here. Maybe I’ll use it on my private account. The image is 349 x 315 and fits nicely in the avatar window on Facebook.

Things have been busy around here, and I’m going to try and get some tutorials and code snippets up shortly. I’m also thinking about trying my hand at some youtube videos.

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 !
