Dash of Inspiration – October 17, 2011

A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

How the Heck Did They Do That?

Ever find yourself saying that when you see something cool on someone’s website?  When I went full force into creating online stores and a web presence, I was constantly stuck trying to figure out how to add images, links and so on to my sites and Squidoo lens.  So, as I collected the information I created a text document that now sits as a short-cut on my desktop with all the bits and pieces of HTML coding for when I need it.

This week I’ll pass on some sites and tips where you can find what you need to create those all important back links.

Let me start with this:  Ever wonder how to get a background on your storefront or add an image with a link?  The key here is that the image file must be HOSTED somewhere that allows you to Copy Image Location. In today’s environment, the easiest way to accomplish this is to open a free Flickr account.  Upload your image, make it private if you like to keep others from accessing it on Flickr, then you can grab the image location from there to use on your sites.  Simple & free solution.
