    should you Squidoo!?

    It's hard to balance between promoting your work and producing it.

    There are an endless myriad of ways to promote yourself online from simple blogs (Twitter, anyone?) to full blown websites.

    I'm having a blast investigating the possibilities - Wix, Weebly, Wordpress, Tumblr, Blogger etc. And it's really fun to update my skills since my HTML/Frontpage days. But I seem to be wandering down many, many blind alleys.

    It seems that I learn at least one new term a day. Yesterday when playing with Wordpress templates I came across the phrase 'widget-ready', lol.

    Right now I have a few feeds that are automatically picked up by my Tumblr blog. I can't seem to resist fiddling with the style of how posts are displayed there.

    Is a website ever 'done'? Is it better just to paste, I mean link to some random Squidoo! pages you've made? Does everything have to be viewable on a hand held/mobile device?

    It's not really feasible to exhaust all the possibilities. At what point do you say it's good enough? And simply go with it?

      Carpal tunnel syndrome

      Hi Folks,

      As common as carpal tunnel syndrome is, I expect there are some of you bothered by it. I've had it for a few years, and there have been times at night when it really got bad. But if I watch the type of work I'm doing, it isn't that bad. The wrist supports help, but if I do the...

      please check it out...don't be too harsh though i've still got a ways to go on it all. building the site took me HOURS but i think i've got the hang of it now so maybe it'll be a lot quicker for me to jazz it up a bit as i think it's kind of plain. anyway, check out the gallery and i'm open to your...

      My last year of college, I was tired of taking classes that didn't interest me, so I asked my teacher if I could do an independent study which incorporated web design with photo retouching since there were no classes dealing with either (turns out...

      Hey Arura! (about travel in Viet Nam)

      Hi Arura,

      I thought I'd move the discussion of VN travel over here so that we don't clutter up the Critiques thread with off-topic discussion. Anything goes over here in Salon though!

      Wow - 5 weeks to see VN! That sounds about right. I brought my mother with me in...
