Learning to Blog

So since I am still new to this whole blogging thing and I would like to learn how to promote my products by using my blog I signed myself up for a free blogging e-course from Sunday Afternoon Housewife that is basically ALL about blogging to promote your business!!  How great is that?!?!  Well I think it’s pretty darn great.  Did I mention that it's free!  So I’m hoping that it will get me blogging about the right stuff to attract more followers as well as customers and to just blog more often too.  J 
So for my first blogging prompt I’m to write about something new that I would like to share with my readers/customers.  I have recently heard about this thing called Picnik and up until today I had no idea what it was….at all.  So I did a little poking around and playing around and have found that it is kind of a cool little website for photo editing.  There is a large chunk of it that is free to use and some more advanced features that you pay a monthly subscription to use but all in all I found it kind of cool.  You are able to add some effects to photos that normally only the pros know how to do as well as some cute stickers and “accessories” (check out my doctored photo) to your photos. 

I also like that you don’t have to just have fun with it but for the more serious person who just wants to clean up their photos there are a lot of useful tools in there and some only the pros know how to do…like creating that airbrushed effect or cleaning up that mad solar glare on your forehead.   Now, I will say that I have been using Photoshop for years for all my photo editing and I have become pretty comfortable with it so I will probably still stick with that but for being a website that you can correct photos on, I think Picnik is pretty darn cool.  Check it out sometime.  J
