Time…need more time! ~Photo credit: im elsewhere via flickr
As far as time management goes, the ability to quickly find on-line resources is vitally important from a busy blogger’s viewpoint.
Have you visited blog sites that feature items you would love to include in your blog; or, you discover a great challenge they are participating in, but somehow, link information seems obscurely hidden?
It may not happen too often for you, but when it does, spending time hunting for information within a blog site does burn up precious time and is highly frustrating as well.
Well, then again, perhaps my impatience to search for things is showing. Moreover, maybe I should stop my complaining, and instead, make sure I have a page featuring all the super handy reference resources I find valuable and worth sharing with other bloggers.
Now many of you may know of blogger extraordinaire, Sonel, over at Sonel’s Corner. (If not, you’re missing greatness!) ☺
Her post, Online Fun Photo Effects features her photographs altered in different editing on-line sites. Sonel shares her creative editing skills, as well as, include the link sites she uses and lists them in a separate Links and Resources blog page.
You have to agree, sharing your on-line resources is not only helpful, but a kind “gesture gift” to give graciously to fellow bloggers–especially because it saves them precious time.
In the past, to give a kindly “gesture gift” to blog friends, I created a page called, Charming Featured Blog/Post Crushes. It started as a blogroll then later became a spot to highlight blog sites and or posts I thought interesting enough to share with my readers.
Unfortunately, the traffic to the page was minimal; it took incredible amounts of time to prepare every post; link sites were often ignored and worse, broken links popped up because featured bloggers occasionally decided to shut down their blog site.
While pondering what to do about this problem, I remembered my experience while working in a profitable retail fashion business.
The obsessed retail management team constantly monitored sales per square inch (or so it seemed). If an area of the store did not produce to projected sales quota, they would brainstorm and alter, in a crazy whirlwind sort of way, everything in that area to boost sales to meet the quota.
Well, like my past retail training example, since my old page lacked interest for whatever reasons, it is now time to:
REDESIGN THE FLOOR PLAN!
As I Strip away the old, and lay down the new…here is the latest floor design:
☼sunROOM: reference resources
I hope this work in progress room can be useful for those looking for some of the blog resources used here. I also hope it helps you be inspired and be a real time-saver.
Here is the preview for the new, ☼sunROOM!
