Walking the walk online

The idea for my website is jelling for sure.  I am blooming with ideas and writing things down on word, excel spreadsheet, and shares on social media.  I'm really not sure if anyone is reading because there are so many phantoms that drift on and off of here, without making any comment.  Was that because they didn't stay long enough to even click never mind scroll to the bottom of the page.

Alas, we all have to start somewhere.  It isn't like I am a rookie, just someone with no acclaim.  Dedicated to writing while mainly trying to help others go beyond average to remarkable.  That was my vision statement I came up with about 5 years ago, just a couple of years in.  Realizing you can't just talk the talk, you have to be able to walk the walk.

Walking the walk
is accountability to myself.  Nobody else.  I realized that yes, I had some recognition many moons ago in sales, but it doesn't necessarily apply to "what have you done for me lately?"

02.17.2017 was a very fine day indeed
I started creating some eye-catching quotes-in-design_art_photography.  I hope you like some of my selections.  I'll have a tutorial at the end if you are a novice online person or blogger and wants someone to help you from the bottoms up.

A community: graFX designs for bloggers and social media

I'm starting this blog up to create a community for those who want help with sprucing up their blog or social media presence.

Images and graphics add omph to any message and should be used at all times.  Especially for your blog.  I chose a primary image that I feel speaks to the topic and knowing that it will go along with any links to stand out.  This is an example from my optioneerJM blog, where I have done most of my experimentation and the pursuit of knowledge.

The above blogs are those that I follow faithfully on my knowledge journey on optioneerJM.  It lends an excellent example of the message here.  You should note that there are some big hitters on the list.  What stands out is the one with the image may be more attractive.

As I build this blog, I will share insights to help anyone who is trying to gain attention in a cluttered, noisy world online under social media.  Including graphics in any of your messages definitely draws the eye to bright colors.

I was goofing around, combining images with the graFX designs images ....

Pictures with words come ALIVE

"Images sell when just words can't."

I've become adept with MicroSoft's PAINT.  Fiddling and farting around until I find the write image to go with the message I want to convey.  I even added the "Zzzzzzz" because I was being whimsical .... a lot gets done while others are asleep.

One of my major issues here is that I've borrowed images from other people.  I am going to have to start saving the images on the desktop with the owner of the images so that I properly credit the creator.
