As I am sure you have noticed, NighLon has a new look.
Even though I had been wanting to redesign, I accidentally changed my them (more on that and tips later). I wasn’t going to take on that challenge quite yet because I am participating in The SITS Girls 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. I have learned many things, and this is just the start of the second week. This week, I am taking a “look under the hood” of NighLon. This will include: checking for broken links, creating a best of page, making NighLon mobile friendly, and some other nitty gritty stuff. (I promise that you guys will benefit!)
I have already made some great blogging buddies and have some project in mind to work with them on. These guys have inspired me to write this post. We have all had so much fun sharing our tips, tools, secrets, and favorite websites.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite websites, that I only discovered this week. I am already addicted.
Catchfree.com is basically my new go-to site. Catch free highlights the best of the web. There’s a catch though: Its only free services. AMAZING! Their tagline describes it perfectly: Perform everyday tasks for free.
One of the features I really like about it is that Its not just site-owner opinion, users also rate services and give critiques. You can even narrow searches down and see how closely the service matches your criteria. I have only begun to explore. This will definitely be my first stop when searching for useful web services.
Google: Watch out, I won’t be spending as much time sweet-talking you!
Some of the services featured on CatchFree are:
listen to children’s books
backup computer files
build a website
build a landing page
I stress that this is just a very few services highlighted at Catchfree.com
To all my readers (and SITSTAS) I hope you find this as beneficial as I do.
So, in my earlier post, I gave some wrong information.
This was not intentional, but I do want to correct myself.
I stated that you have to have 25 likes to have a vanity URL…
I WAS WRONG!
Here is how to do it:
1. From your fanpage, navigate to “Edit Page” (the upper right hand corner)
2. Select “Basic Information” from the menu on the left.
3. Click the link for “Create a username for this page”
you will be here
As promised, I am starting a blog series.
A weekly tip/ tutorial on using Facebook for marketing.
With this being the first in the series, there will be improvements as we move along.
Lesson 1: Setting up a page.
A Facebook fanpage is a very important marketing tool for brands.
Before you can begin implementing this amazing tool, first you have to own one!
(If you already have one, I will have other advice for you after the tutorial)
1. At the very bottom of the Facebook homepage, click “create a page”
this is the screen you will be directed to:
Finally, I figured it out!
NIGHLON is black!
Along with many other major sites!
I took several days off from blogging for several reason… I know, I’m horrible.
My Mother was in town for an unexpected visit and I really enjoyed my time with her.
Also, I wanted to get caught up on my Mommy Blog (Beautiful Imperfection) with my weight loss journey.
I have a few HUGE projects coming up, so I wanted to take a step back and get my thoughts all together.
This will really benefit you amazing people out there who have put up with all my randomness!
Also- SITS’ 31 Days to Build a Better Blog started this week, so That is also pretty exciting!
I have a new plan in order!
This week I am singing the “happy birthday” song to non other than:
HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY
It has been requested that I write a post on how to enable the Timeline now.
So here goes!
In order to do this, you have to be registered with Facebook as a developer.
Here’s how to do that!
