Ana Silva Photography

Ana from Ana Silva Photography contacted me to redesign her blog. She was looking for a blog to accommodate both her photography and photo props businesses. I absolutely love the colors and the logo from her design, I had a lot of fun with this design. Check out her blog.

Review Gadget

Did you know Facebook got rid of the reviews tab? Well they did! They announced it at the end of the Summer and finally took it of.

Now, what can you do with all your readers/clients who are eager to leave you a review? Send them to your blog or site, of course :)

For those of you who use WordPress, there are tons of review plugins out there however for Blogger users, the selection is limited. I found one for blogger that should do the job just fine and it’s FREE…

Google Friend Connect. Yep the same place where you get your followers gadget also has a review gadget. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial.

It's a Blog's World!

I have mentioned before that I'm new to the blogging world, in my attempt to become a  good blogger I set out to research what a blog was and how would it help me.

Well, I went to Wikipedia (I could hear my professors saying wikipedia is not a good research site, lol) and found what I was looking for. However, reading about it still left me with questions.

Custom Facebook Page Link/URL...

This tutorial is for my new friends from the UBP11 (HUGE blog party hosted by 5 minutes for mom) who got more than 25 Facebook fans/followers and would like to customize their Facebook link/url from that very long and tedious Facebook generic link/url to an easy to remember link/url.

*** I just noticed FB changed their customized URL rules; you no longer have to wait for 25 fans in order to customize the URL. It can be done as soon as you create the page...... YAY!!!!! :D ***

By the end of this tutorial you'll be able to go from to You need at least 25 fans to be able to customize it. If you've customized it before, you will not be able to make new changes.
