Do I Need a New Blog Template?

Friday, August 31st, 2007

Since looking around on the internet, I’ve started to notice how many blog seems to be looking a little old, maybe even outdated.. In the meantime I’ve been developing a new template to spruce is up. Take for example the blog underneath my snapshot. Better design right?

Here is a listing of some of my favorite places to look for new themes

Free templates for Wordpress Online:
Freewordpressthemes.com – A great selection of themes, probably the best I’ve seen.
themes.wordpress.net – Basic themes, but easy to choose the theme you are looking for.

Free templates for Blogger:
FinalSense.com – I found the basis for this blog here. The best themes out there.
Gecko and Fly – The other really great place to get free blogger themes, check out K2.

Which is Better Blogger or Wordpress?
Though I use Blogger, I would have to say Wordpress. Wordpress has many more plugins in support. Blogger is simply easier for me to use and much easier to code. However, on the downside there is much less support for Blogger than their is for Wordpress.

Share A Pic Get Money From Pictures

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

The newest way to make money? Share your pictures and get cash at the same time. With Share A Pic, they already setup all the google advertising for you, all you need to do is just upload your pictures.

Uploading your pictures is also fast. They have a multi picture upload so you can easily upload all your pictures at one time.

On the downside, the picture gallery looks rather bland. Have a look at mine here.
I prefer the setup of Webshots and Google much more. The interface is simply better, but on the downside you won’t make any money off your pictures. Its really your call. Is a little extra money worth a bland picture interface?

Download Mp3s For Free, My Top List

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Sometimes I’m just looking for only one song, but being cheap as I am I don’t want to pay for it. Fortunately there are still a few sites that provide Mp3’s for free.

My Top 3 Sites for Downloading Mp3s

http://www.emp3world.com/ – All the links here have worked, and they seem to updated their charts daily. Don’t expect full albums, but they do have many top hits songs for free. Expect download speeds of 33.6 kbs/sec.

http://www.yourmp3.net/ – Another site featuring a lot of top Mp3s. Expect a lot of ads to clutter everything on the site. Fast downloads speeds of upto 130 kbps.

http://www.seekasong.com/ – Type in an artist name and expect to get at least 10 of their most popular songs listed. Most links work, but make sure you right click. This is also another site full of advertisements.
