BANNER

CHOOSE THE APPROPRIATE BANNER FOR YOUR SUBJECT AND DAY OF THE WEEK. THESE ARE IN THE FILEBOX AS “DAVID’S TEMPLATES”. COPY THE BANNERS AND TEXT BOXES YOU WILL USE AND CREATE YOUR OWN TEMPLATE FILE.

FROM THE TEMPLATE FILE, COPY THE BANNER AND CONTENT DOWN TO THE HEADER SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE RIGHT SPACING FOR THE BANNER, PHOTO, TAGS AND THE FIRST HEADER.

TAGS

Consciousness: inspiration

THESE TAGS REPEAT 2-3 OF THE TAGS YOU WILL CHOOSE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS FILE ADN REFLECT THE KEY THEMES OF YOUR POST. THEY ARE ITALICS, LOWER CASE, SEPARATED BY COLONS.

PHOTOS

ALL PHOTOS ARE 150PX

DIV TAGS ARE 150PX

CLICK ON THE HTML EDITOR AT THE TOP OF THIS FILE AND CHANGE THE SIZE OF THE DIV TAG, IF NECESSARY. IF YOU HAVE COPIED A SAMPLE FROM THE TEMPLATE FILE, IT SHOULD ALREADY BE SET TO 150PX.

TO CHANGE PICTURE, CLICK ON THE PHOTO AND ON THE IMAGE BOX THAT APPEARS.

THE URL FOR YOUR NEW PHOTO IS PLACED IN ADVANCED SETTINGS AT “SOURCE.”

REMEMBER TO REMOVE ANY ESIXTING NUMBERS IN THE SIZE BOX.

CLICK ON THE OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW IF YOU PLAN TO HAVE A LINK BEHIND THIS PHOTO.

ANY LINKS FOR A LARGER PHOTO, OR OTHER SITE BEHIND THE PHOTO, IS PLACED IN THE “LINK URL IMAGE” ON THE EDIT SCREEN.

ALWAYS NAME THE PHOTO USING THE “EDIT IMAGE TITLE” BOX – THIS TITLE WILL LATER APPEAR WHEN THE CURSOR IS DRAGGED OVER THE PHOTO ON THE POST.

INSTRUCTIONS – SUCH AS “CLICK TO ENLARGE” – ARE IN STRAIGHT TEXT

USE SHIFT/ENTER AT THE END OF THE PHOTO TITLE, TO MAKE JUST ONE ONE SPACE BETWEEN THE TITLE AND THE DIRECTIONS – THAT KEEPS THE SIZE OF THE PHOTO BOX AS SMALL AS POSSIBLE

HEADERS

ONE MANS LIFE WORK ABANDONED – FOR HIS VALUES

HEADERS ARE IN ALL CAPS – AND IN THE RED COLOR THAT APPEARS IN THE COLOR TEXT BOX ON THE FAR LEFT – SECOND FROM THE TOP.

FIRST PARAGRAPH

THE WRITING STYLE IS MORE JOURNALISTIC, WITH THE KEY POINTS IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH… PERHAPS 5 W’S – BUT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT IN THAT THE FIRST APPROX 150 CHARACTERS MAY SHOW UP IN A TWITTER OR OTHER SUMMARY, SO YOU WILL ALSO WANT THE FIRST 1-2 SENTENCES TO CATCH THE ATTENTION OF THE READER…WITHOUT HAVING TO GIVE ALL THE USUAL 5 w’S DETAILS -

THIS MEANS YOU MAY NOT BE WRITING IN A “LOGICAL” WAY TO INTRODUCE THE TOPIC BUT INSTEAD JUMP INTO WHAT WOULD GRAB ATTENTION AND COME BACK TO EXPLANATIONS OR BACKGROUND INFORMATION LATER.

WIIFM – THE STYLE IS A LITTLE MORE OF AN ADVERTISING STYLE – RECOGNIZING “THE WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME”

CONTENT IS USUALLY BETWEEN 500 – 1000 WORDS.

OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE A SITE WITH AN UPBEAT, POSITIVE TONE. THAT DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT DRAW ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEMS – BUT WE LOOK TO PROVIDE SOME SOLUTIONS OR POSITIVE OUTLOOK, ALONG WITH AN HONEST, FAIR DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEMS.

SHORT PARAGRAPHS WITH LOTS OF HEADERS, TEXT BARS, INSIGHT TABS, AND WHITE SPACE.

BLOGS ARE OFTEN CHATTY, AND NOT RESPECTFUL OF GOOD WRITING/GRAMMER – WE WANT TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL WRITING STYLE -  BUT KEEP THE TONE CHATTY – AND EASY TO READ QUICKLY.

DAVID HAS A FOG INDEX POST TO TEST YOUR WRITING LEVEL – S/B ABOUT A GRADE 7-8 LEVEL – (RECENT RESEARCH IS EVEN SAYING GRADE 5!) – NOT THAT OUR READERS ARE NOT BRIGHT – BUT IT REFLECTS THE AMOUNT OF TIME PEOPLE WANT/HAVE TO SPEND READING AT YOUR SITE.

RATHER THAN USING A BLACK TYPE WITH BOLD IF YOU WANT TO DRAW MORE ATTENTION TO THE TEXT – USE THE RED COLOR BUT DO NOT USE CAPS.

Would you walk away from ten years of your life work and passion – because your conscience now tells you, your work is not safe for the environment? Well, that is exactly what our Friday Enlightenor just did.

John Lacy, astronomy professor at the University of Texas, has had the courage to stand up for what is right, and has walked away from awards and accolades and future success for his life work for NASA, because it is the right thing to do. With people like Lacy, our world will be in good hands…

BEER INDUCED CREATIVITY

The fraternity poker game participants were locked in mortal combat as Tom staggered into the dining room (a.k.a. the poker emporium). Tom was fresh from his self-described part-time job (6 hours of sitting at a nearby tavern letting patrons buy him drinks while he scooped loose change off the bar). He made a few boisterous comments and then disappeared as quickly as he came in. The poker game renewed its heated intensity. Everyone assumed Boston Tom was in dreamland hitting home runs over the Green Monster at his beloved Fenway Park. Read the rest of this entry »

Consciousness: true selfishness

BILLBOARDS ARE NICE, BUT …

Ever drive past a billboard and get frustrated because inflatable obstacle course for sale you can’t figure out what it says? I do. Billboards can be an extremely effective method of advertising when done right. When not done right, they can be an enormous waste of time and money.

You have a very short amount of time to get your message across on a billboard. You have anywhere from 3-6 seconds, if you’re lucky and traffic is reasonably slow. That’s not a lot of time. I constantly see businesses trying to cram in all their information on billboards. inflatable obstacle course Address, phone number, a picture of the owner with his dog, the product, a customer testimonial, the product logo … it goes on and on. The message gets lost and nothing is remembered as the driver tries to drive and read through the jumble.

Criteria For Your Management Information

April 29th, 2009 by Greg Pashke

What should I look at?

Look Carefully

strategic planning: innovation: management:success

HOW TO EVALUATE WHAT YOU NEED

We all need good information to monitor and manage our organizations. We need timely, efficient and effective management information to drive the decision-making inflatable games for sale process. To meet these needs, managers should be aware of the available criteria for a proper evaluation.

“You can not feed the hungry on statistics.“-Wilfred Laurier

The following 14 evaluative criteria are offered as a frame of reference for the planning, developing and monitoring of organizational information needs.

It is important to note that proper use of the criteria will involve the assessment of qualitative as well as quantifiable attributes and will require dealing in the unfamiliar and uncomfortable qualitative arena. Also, since the criteria will not generally carry equal weight, inflatable games management will need an adequate grasp of the critical criteria of its own organization. Use of the evaluative criteria should, however, provide a framework for “relative ranking” of competing data requests and thus allow for a rational allocation of available organizational resources. The evaluation job will still be difficult, but a systematic approach should increase the likelihood that all the “bases” will be covered.
