А вы хотите зарабатывать с блога? [ Mon ] · Mar 29, 10 · [ 22:30 ]

Всем привет!

Недавно заметил в блоге Игоря Бигдана рекламный баннер, где он предлагает рекламу в своем блоге. И тоже задумался над тем, как бы получить хотя бы небольшую копеечку со своего увлечения.

Наткнулся на форуме блоггеров http://www.bloggers.su/forum/ на раздел о монетизации блогов http://www.bloggers.su/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29, там обсуждаются многие вопросы, смысл которых мне непонятен. Тем не менее, некоторые из участников озвучивали цифры, и у некоторых якобы доход с блога был такой, что с основной работы можно было уйти... я бы тоже так хотел...

Особенно заинтересовала тема: Как начать зарабатывать на блоге? В ней новичкам, в т.ч. и мне, объясняют как найти рекламодателей для блога, какими способами вообще можно заработать... короче интересно блин и перспективно, как мне кажется.

А вы что думаете об этом?

Iconage [ Wed ] · Aug 30, 06 · [ 13:06 ]

[ mood | creative ]

I don't normally create icons, nor do I post them for everyone to use, but I'm sparing these bunch for that. It contains some old works as well as a couple of new ones. I've been inspired to make icons from several of the shows I've been watching lately (as well as enjoying them) and its all for you. Icons afterall, are meant to be shared. :)

Some rules
Credit appreciated, but not necessary.
Icons without text are not bases.
You may place text in them if you want, just don't alter them too much.
[suggested: if you wish to add text to text-less icons, you can use font face GOUDY or GEORGIA-REFINED in white. add a finishing touch of a black-based shadow]
Please comment if taking. I wanna know who uses them still.
If possible, please keep the icons in LJ-communities only. Not in Xanga, other journals, etc.
and the most important rule... HAVE FUN!

Post includes icons from Joan of Arcadia, One Tree Hill, Veronica Mars, The OC, and Misc.
(*) are my personal faves.

100 Icon Challenge [ Sun ] · Jul 10, 05 · [ 21:03 ]

You ready for that? Hahaha.. I got the idea out of icons100.
Our goal is to make 100 icons out of a specific subject. For example, general fantasy, Harry Potter 3 and the like. It can be a movie, book, artists, stuff like that. Each icon must correspond to the themes under the cut. They don't have to be finished right away. Hell, they don't even have a deadline. This is merely a means of unleashing creativity. To prevent you from losing ideas on what to do.

Note: There are more than 100 themes under the cut. 10 icons are free, they don't have to belong to any theme. It is entirely up to you. But 90 of them have to come from the list.

Good luckCollapse )

Comment on this entry for your desired subject.

None? [ Wed ] · Jun 1, 05 · [ 14:10 ]

[ mood | creative ]

Nobody was able to take up the challenge. Nobody was able to think of a vanity plate idea. Nobody.

Oh well, that's fine with me, so does that mean I get a free frappe? *smirks*

Anyway, here's a piece of fiction I've written at late. Which you don't have to read but if you do, tell me if it deserves a following chapter.

Mary. Bloody Mary. Virgin Mary. Mary, mother of all mothers.Collapse )

A/N: Worth pursuing? I think I've done a build-up somewhere. Somewhere.

1 :: Of names and dreamers [ Fri ] · May 13, 05 · [ 20:07 ]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Hi. I'm Kim but this name has caused me a great deal of dissatisfaction in the past due to unnecessary nicknames like Kimmy, Kimmiekins (except if it's Abby), Kimmy-ice-cream-bar (I'm not sweet, trust me) et. al.

So for fun, I challenge you guys to think up of a nice nickname that will suit me and make a graphic file/flash/whatever containing it. The size should not excede 640x480. Talk about narcissism! But I need your help guys. Criterea for judging will be based on of course the name, the graphic design and the overall impact. I of course will be your judge.

Do your research. Stalk me for all I care. The name should fit my personality and should at least be related to my full first name which is Kim Loraine. Let the challenge begin!

Now to conclude my first ever post, I am posting one of the songs I've made over the past 6 months. I hope you guys like it. And hopefully, I'll be able to upload the mp3 for all y'all to hear. Just the lyrics for now.

Silver poniesCollapse )

A question: Which is better for indie recordings? Acid Pro or Cakewalk?

Challenge Closed [ Tue ] · May 10, 05 · [ 22:18 ]

[ mood | blank ]

We had a discussion on YM and it seems that they cannot do the challenge. So there. The challenge is closed.

I won twice already [according to Nica]! Bwahahahaha! XD Another frap for me! XD

When are you getting me those fraps??? :P

Mmm... Because I won again... I command someone else to make a new challenge. Yeah. Go ahead. XD But I will still be the judge. Yeah. XD

Go think of something already!!! XD

[ mood | amused ]

Aight... New challenge. XD Design your own t-shirt [logo]. Yeah... Since you forced me to make a challenge. XD

Details behind the cut...Collapse )

So anyway, since I won the last challenge, I won't join this one. [Since you've already seen my creation.] And umm... I'll be the one to judge the best[est] work. I'll be judging fairly, don't worry. :)

So are you guys game? :D
